The reason is i simply that they needed it! | Magic was the attempt hyi man to control the forces of| nature. And this was a very | practical matter. i Rain was necessary fori crops; fish had to be caught i in the nets; a house had to stand properly; misfortune j had to be warded off; and men needed skill in war. All of these were practical matters and magic arose as ai means of helping man control j jjj AND LOIS the natural forces on which j these matters depended, | Of course, in order for | magic to exist, there had to be a belief in a mysterious supernatural power that existed in all things. And the practice of magic always depended on certain elements. The first of these was the spell. This meant uttering certain words ! according to a formula. | The second element was the j rite. This meant going i through a set of actions to convey the spell to the object which the magician wanted to influence. The third element was the condition of the magician. Among all primitive peoples, the magician had to prepare himself very carefully for his performance. When primitive man believed in magic, this didn't mean that he depended on it entirely to accomplish what he wanted and needed. He used his skill and knowledge to do as much as he could. But he felt there was also an element of Juck or chance involved, and he used magic to try to control these. Why did primitive people continue to believe in magic? Of course, we know that magic cannot control the forces of nature. The magicians were usually very skilled men and this skill— as in medicine—helped them do their magic. They also picked the right moments for their rnagic. The people wanted to believe in the magician, so if he had one success it meant more than many failures.
