What is white magic?

In Saiyasart the term White Magic refers to manipulations that do not involve coercion. It is important to understand that the division into white magic and black magic in the understanding of the Saiyasart does not contain any moral or ethical evaluation and is fluid in both directions.


A simple example of white magic is a recommendation that the recipient can either accept for himself or not. Another example would be a book that can be either read or put out of hand. In more complex cases – because shifted to the level of non-being – white-magic action can also refer to the consensual dissolution of magical figures (e.g. poltergeist).

White magic can thus be described as a kind of “non-violent communication” at the level of being and/or not being.
