White Magic - noun: magic used only for good purposes. [www.onelook.com]

"Macvicar teaches that the nearer we ascend to the fountain-head of being and of action, the more magical must everything inevitably become; for that fountain-head is pure volition. And pure volition, as a muse, is precisely what is meant by magic; for by magic is meant a mode of producing a phenomenon without mechanical appliances, - that is, without that seeming continuity of resisting parts and that leverage which satisfy our muscular sense and our imagination and bring the phenomenon into the category of what we call "the natural;" that is, the sphere of the elastic, the gravitating, - the sphere into which the vis inertia is alone admitted." [Bloomfield-Moore, The Keely Motor Secret]

"Wisdom; the science and art of consciously employing invisible (spiritual) powers to produce visible effects. Will, love, and imagination are magic powers that everyone possesses, and he who knows how to develop them and to use them consciously and effectually is a magician. He who uses them for good purposes practises white magic. He who uses them for selfish or evil purposes is a black magician. Paracelsus uses the term Magic to signify the highest power of the human spirit to control all lower influences for the purposes of good. The act of employing invisible powers for evil purposes he calls Necromancy, because the Elementaries of the dead are often used as mediums to convey evil influences. Sorcery is not Magic, but stands in the same relation to Magic as darkness to light. Sorcery deals with the forces of the human and animal soul, but Magic with the supreme power of the spirit." Franz Hartmann, The Life of Philippus Theophrastus, Bombast of Hohenheim, Known by the name of Paracelsus and The Substance of His Teachings (underline added)

When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. [Arthur C. Clark]
