Neophyte here. I can't seem to bridge this gap between the psychic functions of magic (egregores, spirits, god-forms, collective consciousness, etc.) which seem possible and believable to me, and the supposed physical powers–causing wind to blow, setting things on fire, playing with electricity. I've also noticed that the latter seems to be more commonly mentioned in the threads about the Eastern tradition, whereas the Western school focuses more on thought-forms. Yeah, I understand that for both, the goal is the same; however the idea of causing lights to flicker, even once, really turns me on (same as everyone, I think). So which system should I focus on?
