Occultism

From PathfinderWiki
Care is needed when dabbling in the occult.
This article covers the philosophy of occultism. For the psychic magic class, see occultist.

Occultism is a philosophy that believes in incomprehensible hidden forces beneath and between the perceptible realities of the planes. These forces shape and manipulate perceptible reality in strange ways,[1] and occultists believe mastering them can teach them hidden truths about the universe and grant mastery over life after death.[2] Those who study occultism are often called occultists, and the field is often referred to as simply the occult.[1]

Occultism is tightly linked to psychic magic, which is both a form of occult practice and a means of manipulating occult forces.[3]
