    Thaumaturgy: The ability to affect medical miracles
    Quoi? What does thaumaturgy have to do with medicine, specifically?

    It's a starter ability to a more advanced ability called Healing Hands. Thaumaturgy simply sends the healing through thought, sometimes prayer, etc. Healing Hands then takes it a step further by actual touching and transferring of sickness.

    hmmmmmmm...... it seems to me Thaumaturgy according to the wikipedia article is:

    "Thaumaturgy deals with producing a desired effect within the material world, but it is not necessarily opposed to or distinct from theurgy in that the material effect produced may simply be a theurgical result caused to emanate downward from the more subtle, spiritual realm into the dense, material sphere. In this way, thaumaturgy may simply be considered as the visual manifestation of theurgy, just as the body is the visual manifestation of the spirit via the mind, as well as its vehicle."

    Which doesnt really have to do with healing per se.....


    Also, I dont really see a fundemental difference between
    "Thaumaturgy: The ability to affect medical miracles. "
    AND
    "Healing Hands - takes Thaumaturgy a step further by actual touching and transferring of sickness."
    - quotes from Kaliel

    The only difference seems to be in terms of form (mode of transmission) rather than actual function (nature of ability).

    You say tomato, I say tomahto, you're right, it's basically the same ability, just different means. That's actually the point, Tabbykitty.

    Also, I haven't dealt a lot with thaumaturgy, but if it's more about producing positive effects, be them spiritual, physical, or mental, then I'd be willing to change my definition of the term. That one in particular was one that confused me a bit because different people kept putting it into different contexts and I wasn't sure which one was correct.

    Thanks,
    Kaliel

    P.S. Now, when I look up the word Theurgy, I might have a better understanding of what exactly Thaumaturgy is.

    Thaumaturgy is just magic that affects the physical more directly than its counterpart, theurgy. Like any sort of magic, it can be used with any intent - negative or positive. It's not more about producing positive effects; it simply is whatever you shape it to be.
