I guess you wouldn't be able. Generally, you see what you believe, and you don't see what you don't believe. And that's simply the effect of your own mind and senses, opening & closing themselves in accordance with your beliefs.
For example, your latest posts indicate that you believe that the forum participants here are deluded idiots. Therefore your mind & senses automatically begin closing themselves against any contrary evidence. Thus when you go to Wikipedia, and you see nothing explaining the term "magick". This supports your belief that ALG is engaging in silly, fanciful, childish thinking again.
Me, I type one word - "Magick" into Google.
Instantly the No. 1 Google search result is a Wikipedia entry on "magick".
I click on the link. Immediately I see on my screen, without having to scroll or click anything, the explanation of "magick" and "magic".
"... the alternate spelling was used to differentiate it from other practices, such as stage magic."
