Replying to LO28157 --

Are you saying that a Master is a Trickster? To what end? And although
no one loves a good definition more than I, if you follow your logic then
you should look up the root meaning of "silly" which comes from selig.



> I could have sworn master(y) came from the Saxon word "maest"=most. But
> the dictionary says it comes from the Latin "magister"=boss. Yet there is
> stil hope because "magis"=more in Latin. Check the spelling because
> "magos"=wizard.
> In Greek "magikos"=magic.
> Conclusion?
> Mastery is magic.
