Magic is the art of doing cool things by controlling natural or supernatural forces, often by saying silly words, relying on laws and principles that so far remain beyond the scope of science. Real magic, sad to say, is quite rare. Magic performed on stage is usually the result of technology and illusion, whereas most authentic magical acts can be attributed to the Force so that midi-chlorians are really doing all the work.
The Mulgari Trance, a form of occult mind control, is often considered magic but may just be a really intense psychological mugging. Its counter-spell, on the other hand, which can turn people into stone under certain circumstances, is most definitely magic.
