Learn to predict things. Evolution
How in the world the creature scheme looks like?
Predict things. Bacteria >> Insect >> Amphibian >> Avifauna >> Animal >> Human Being >> Physic >> Mage >> Wizard>> Sorcerer
There must be some structure to understand how the essence evolves itself from the first move to the last. Let’s look at the common example of ours.
Just like some government or union of state collapses into pieces and some other communities or countries, so does the whole human body. The principles work in one body as a whole. Principles of the nature, principles of machinery, likewise there are principles of predictions. To become a mage, one should be able to maintain and interfere to things, rather than just observe and see them. To do so a mage should be able to interact with the future time.
Let’s look at another example
Future << Predictions << Senses << Knowledge << Education << Will << Customs << Lifestyle.
Basing on such formula lifestyle creates our future. And the sooner you will evolve your lifestyle, the faster you will become a mage. With the magic you can prevent unwilling things, predict things, or conversely build up necessary conditions for desired statement. The main condition is to never stop development process of oneself.
