What is black magic?
In Saiyasart the term Black Magic stands for manipulations which involve coercion. It is important to understand that the division into black magic and white magic in the understanding of Saiyasart does not contain any moral or ethical evaluation and is fluid in both directions.
A simple example of black magic is a command that the recipient must accept, whether he wants to or not. Another example would be a psychological manipulation from which the person concerned cannot escape. In more complex cases – because shifted to the level of non-being – black magic can also refer to remote influence or a curse.
