The "will" of the Mahasiddhas and Bodhisattvas is in agreement with

We are brighter than a thousand stars.
1995, at Stanford University, physicists made two particles of

Magick with a "k" differentiates the word from the sleight-of-hand,
trickery illusions of magic. The magick of the siddha's is called
