O is for Occult

The dictionary defines the occult as the mystical, magical and the supernatural. The occult includes topics that fall outside the realms of religion and science. 

“The occult” is a category into which gets placed a range of beliefs from “spirits or fairies to parapsychological experiments, from UFO-abductions to Oriental mysticism, from vampire legends to channelling, and so on”. – Hanegraaff 

The occult, coined in the 16th century, has changed over time. What does the occult mean to you?
