One of the most difficult aspects of magick is understanding that it is a science and an art. Since there is a scientific aspect to it there must be some presuppositions about magick that have acquired the quality of being rules or laws. In my Modern Sex Magick I describe what I contend are nine basic theorems of magick. These general rules are not sexually related.
