There is great danger in me; for who doth not understand these runes shall make a great miss. He shall fall down into the pit called Because, and there he shall perish with the dogs of Reason.
The word because was originally a phrase, 'by cause', and it still means exactly that. In addition to referring to causation generally it also sometimes specifically denotes motivation and purpose, 'conscious causation' if you will.
'Because' is about the reasons for things, both in the strictly rational sense and in the purely volitional sense.
Science and Magick are thus without doubt the kin of Because.
