Heavy on the magick: Writing is a magickal act

It is to be remembered that all art is magical in origin—music, sculpture, writing, painting—and by magical I mean intended to produce very definite results. Writing and painting were one in cave paintings, which were formulae to ensure good hunting. Art is not an end in itself, any more than Einstein’s matter-into-energy formula is an end in itself. Like all formulae, art was originally functional, intended to make things happen, the way an atom bomb happens from Einstein’s formulae. — William S. Burroughs

Create a picture of the invisible unseen world with regards to writing and how to manipilate and control and harness those forces.

That’s what graffiti living really is.
