I’m not sure if you’ve answered this before but I was curious about the science witch part of your bio. Do you mind explaining that?
Hope you don’t mind if I copy and paste from my previous posts.
In my limited experience, science witches blend empirically proven physical correspondences with metaphysical properties that we believe to be on the edge of proof. We do not have hard evidence, but we have enough compelling evidence that we can take a leap of faith and believe there is more to something than what science has confirmed to date. We also apply the scientific method to magic, so forming hypotheses, documenting results, analyzing those results are all very important. Another thing is that a lot of us believe in the power of the placebo effect. It may not be that any one thing directly causes a result, but there have been many studies showing people who simply believed their placebo (such as a sugar pill rather than actual medicine) was going to cause a certain effect actually experienced that effect. Willpower has been proven to heal, to an extent, and we try to harness that. In a way, we’re like most witches, but we just take it a step further in trying to incorporate our love of science. I, personally, like to distill my water and rose water and make herbal extracts and I’m working on distilling essential oils using my home lab equipment. I have smelted copper metal from copper carbonate that I intend to use in transformation rituals. I’m working on electroplating copper onto pendulums and pendants I soldered to help conduct energies (copper is a good electrical conductor and I like using symbolism). I believe quartz is good for transforming energies from one type to another in the way that they convert internal physical stresses into piezoelectricity. To me, science is just magic that’s been explained. Magic is science where we maybe haven’t identified the mechanism of action yet.
