As a result of widespread ignorant ideas about higher Divine Theurgy, despite the frequent and widespread references to magic, for ages about it evolved completely wrong impression. There are few people today who would have had even the most vague, but the right impression about the system is the highest idea of \u200b\u200bwhat the ancient sages considered truly royal art of transcendental magic. Even fewer people have the ability and training to the end to protect its philosophy and dissipate its principles among those who are considered worthy, since along with the reputation of magic falls and value themselves magicians downmix in public opinion of the day to the level of farce charlatans. Alas, it so happened that they were simply robbed. And even more, the word "magic" has now become synonymous with all the vile, why is exposed on all sides to ridicule and insults.
For several centuries with universal approval in Europe there are these completely unfair. Only in the middle of the XIX century Eliphas Levi, the author certainly gifted with a taste for stylistic synthesis and possessing nothing, he tries to regain the magic of its time-honored high reputation. Absolutely not know what would have ended his efforts, he has not received support from Its successor, the philosophy of the theosophical movement in 1875, and soon after that, and by the outbreak of the discussion on mysticism and the occult. Nevertheless, all efforts were unsuccessful. For now, after years of intense scrutiny and debate around unconcealed esoteric philosophy, as well as practical experience in many areas, in catalogs reading room, for example the British Museum, there is not a single work, which would do at least a timid attempt to give clear, precise and unambiguous interpretation of magic, free from unnecessary clutter of words and symbols. And so it took eighty years studying the occult! No serious work magic!
