Science and magic are not mutally exclusive, but if the legends are true consider to generate a lightening bolt one mnust be able to generate the power to create one. Same with fire. To lift something teleknietically requires the same amount of energy as picking it up manually. The problem is that it manifests on will, not thought and also requires learning to use a new set of muscles, do you know how hard it is to learn to walk from scratch?

Actually, thats not true. I have almost started to light a candle without fire and I managed to twirl a key around a few times and the only energy it took was the energy I put towards the concentration.

would that be magick or a latent ability of the human mind?
And? How does this disprove my statement?

It would have taken me more energy to move the key and start the flame(via lighter or match) than to do it with my mind.

That's not proof that is a claim lacking any kind of supporting evidence, so is infact opinion or belief.

You people continue to chip away at me. Im leaving this topic before I explode and I get in further trouble with the higher ups. You may have won this time, but next time you wont be so lucky.
I unify in order to enlighten
Attracting life.
I seal the matrix of universal fire
With the magnetic tone of purpose.
I am guided by my own power doubled.
