Law of knowledge

The most basic of all The Laws of Magic is the Law of Knowledge because with understanding comes control and power. The more the person or magician knows about a person or phenomena the more control he has over it. This is an absolute rule which applies to the human organism as well as modern technology.

By knowing a person’s daily routine, if one desires to alter that person’s behavior, all one has to do is change a factor or two and the person’s behavior will probably change. A native may walk a certain path daily, but once he keeps seeing little manikins resembling himself which he believes are signs of danger in the path he will choose another path.

A person with computer knowledge is able to control the computer; whereas, a person without such knowledge cannot operate a computer. A.G.H.
