Why Materialists, Atheists, and Marxists Need It

Whatever It (Magick) is, they appear to need to have It "spelled out" several times, as, not content with providing Crowley's key definition (see above), the author's seen fit to deliver several more (fairly minimal) variations of his own:

Magick is a technique used by neopagans for altering states of consciousness that can be used by materialists, atheists and Marxists to change moods when we feel fragmented, blue, anxious or depressed. ...

Magick is the art and science of altering states of consciousness at will through the use of imagination, the senses, the emotions through the arts. ...

Magick is simply the art and science of how to create particular altered states through the systematic use of music and the arts. ...

Magick is about the controlled and systematic use of imagination, that’s why some magickians put an “I” in front of the word magick and turn it into “imagick”. ...

Although arguably, these could all be trumped & superceded with another one of Crowley's: that "Every intentional act" is an act of Magick...
