Chapman’s writing-style is funny, direct, seductively logical, and his enthusiasm for some great benefits of magick is either tangible and infectious.The beginner magician will certainly locate themselves outfitted to start all types of magickal operations: trance paintings, attraction, divination, or even a few of the larger sorts of religious improvement. To skilled magicians, Chapman deals a subtler problem: he revitalizes magick by way of slicing it loose from the extraordinary relativism Chaos Magick bequeathed, provocatively redefining it as: “the artwork, technological know-how and tradition of experiencing truth.”

There are many more methods, such as referring to magical texts as 'papers', but I'm sure you can come up with further examples should you wish to work with the scientific aesthetic.

As stated earlier, we can apply the scientific method to magick (and it must be applied for it to be science), but the scientific method is not the current culture of science.
