什么是魔法 About magic
Magic, in religion and superstition, the practice ofmanipulatingand controlling the course of nature by preternaturalmeans. Magicis based upon the belief that the universe is populatedby unseenforces or spirits that permeate all things. Becausethesesupernatural forces are thought to govern the course ofnaturalevents, control of these forces gives humans control overnature.The practice of magic is held to depend on the proper use ofboththe ritual and the spell. The spell, or incantation, is thecore ofthe magical ceremony; it unlocks the full power of theritual. Thepractice of magic, in seeking its desired end, maycombines withinits scope elements of religion and science. Inalchemy, forexample, the process of transmuting a base metal intogold requiresprecise weights and volumes of acids, bases, andcatalysts as wellas the reciting of holy passages and prayers.
Anthropologists often distinguish between two forms of magic,thesympathetic and the contiguous. Sympathetic magic works ontheprinciple that like produces like. The Ojibwa of NorthAmericawould make a wooden image of an enemy and then stick pinsinto it.Because the doll represented the enemy, harm done to thedoll wasbelieved to harm the enemy. Contiguous magic operates onthe beliefthat things that have been in contact will continue toact on eachother after the physical contact has ceased. Theaborigines ofAustralia believe that they can lame a person byplacing sharppieces of quartz, glass, bone, or charcoal in thatpersonsfootprints. Sometimes both sympathetic and contiguous magicareused in conjunction; certain African tribespeople will build aclayeffigy around nail clippings, hairs, or bits of cloth belongingtothe enemy and roast the completed image slowly in a fire.
Not all magic is performed in order to harm or destroy, andforthis reason a distinction is made between black magic andwhitemagic. White magic is characterized by those rites andspellsdesigned to produce beneficial effects for the community(seefertility rites) or for the individual, particularly in thosecaseswhere an illness is considered to be the result of evil demonsorof black magic.
