Probably simply the conscious effort to tune your own life into the greater pattern of the universe. Interestingly all the great religions would fall into that definition. Magick (and the exploration of faiths) has been part of Pete’s life since he was in his early 20’s. It has taken him into many strange places and introduced him to even stranger people. It is not an easy subject to study, and can cause as many problems as it can solve. However at the end of the day he feels it was worth the effort as he has gained a great deal of deep esoteric knowledge which he sometimes shares with others willing to take the same risks. HINT! One of the essential elements of Magick is to know the correct use of Incense. And for Pete’s explanation of how magick works see “The Frog and the Table” And also please meet The Secret Alkhemyst… Footnote: Terry Pratchett openly based many of his Discworld characters on real people from the re-enactment circuit. It seems that Pete can also be recognised as (in part) the Vice-Chancellor of the Unseen University.
