Occult : this is something
that either deals with or relates to supernatural influences or
phenomena. It is can be something that is only available to those
persons that have been initiated and it is usually something that is
hidden away or concealed. Often it is something that lies beyond the
realm of human comprehension and is inscrutable and mysterious. When
thinking of the occult it tends to conjure up images of priests hidden
away practicing some form of black art or black magic.
The occult is definitely synonymous with the supernatural, mysterious and
mystical. See also devil worship and occultism.
