I'm reading more and more about the Mage:The Ascension rule system, and I'm noticing things. The people who wrote up these rules spent alot of time researching occult practices. They are an amazingly good interpretation of how I percieve real world magick working. In fact, so much so, that i'm considering using it as a metaphor for my work. It's a little something to bring the complicated workings of reality hacking into my rather... well, despite my arrogant pretenses, my grasp is limited. I recognize this fact (sometimes).
It's something to work on at the very least.
