Phil Hine - Permutations
There is a difference, albeit a subtle one, between ‘doing magic’ as part of a development programme or to test an idea, a ritual, and the magic which arises out of need - that which wells forth from circumstance. Over the years, I have seen a vast difference in terms of both the event, and the effects. This is not to say that the one is somehow ‘better’ than the other. Constructed rites based on a raw idea can spin the celebrants off in surprising directions. However, for the moment, I want to concentrate on the magic of need.
