Occult science is a broad umbrella-like term, on the lines of "magic," and has many definitions. Basically, it pre- assumes that there are hidden laws. This means that there are causal principles behind the world of our physical senses that we are unaware of. The so-called "laws of nature" have as many definitions as "occult science." In general, the laws of nature are those laws of physics that we know about, while occult science treats of the laws of physics that we do not know about, largely because they cannot be demonstrated in laboratory-like conditions and thus are statistically unreliable. Within the Theosophical community occult science is respected while magic is abhored although truth-to-tell few Theosophists seem to know the difference (i.e., that occult science is largely theoretical while magic is largely the practical application of occult science).Answer Question
