There is no black magic. Just a wondrous oneness of ‘All That Is’.
The reality is that owing to our duality conscious ego-derived and driven mindset, we see and experience only ‘this’ and ‘that’ every day of our life. That is, everything seems separate from us, as some subject or an object - hardly ever a part of us.
However, in quintessence, at the principal substratum level, all that we see hither or thither is nothing but an indivisible whole. What it means in simple words is that whatsoever is, this existence now or hence, is a continuum. An unbreakable unity of being.
Only at a simplistic level of understanding do people view “all this” - our world “here”, and the rest of the universe “out there” - as something “other than us”.
“The plurality that we perceive is only an appearance; it is not real.” ~Erwin Schrodinger [Austrian physicist, 1933 Nobel Prize for Physics]
The freemystics of ancient India called this seemingly world-appearance as ‘maya’ - an illusory state of non-being.
In other words, though we may see it so, and therefor, feel to be a part of this world, yet “all this” - I, you, them! And all that is, the universe and us - is but a ghost of nothingness.
It is very much like the serpent we see in the rope at night, but in the morning find it to be unreal.
Similarly, once the bio-chemical “this-that-ness” of existence is delved into its essence and to the extreme, the most advanced scientists insist, as did the Nobel prize winning physicist, Niels Bohr, that “everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.”
One of the most brilliant theoretical physicists of the 20th century, David Bohm, held identical view of this existence as the freemystics of India, of it being an “undivided wholeness… an implicate order… an unbroken and undivided totality.”
It is no wonder that these physicists, all possessing wondrous minds, along with other Nobel laureates as Max Planck, Werner Heisenberg etc. had read, and had derived the basics of their quantum science and beyond from the metaphysical teachings propounding the oneness and unity of everything - namely, the VEDANTA texts, the UPANISHADS of ancient India.
So, how does the above provided information answer your question, of black magic being “real” or not? Well, it should, without my telling you - if you’re receptive, and perceptive enough.
But telling it as it is, you should “get” it that the epitome of knowledge, as revealed by the self-realized ancient freemystics and sages of ancient India, and by the advanced scientific minds as the afore-mentioned Nobel laureates, is that the “otherness” experienced by us is just an illusion, an unreality sensed foolishly as though as real, by our physical senses.
However, once the seeking of ALL THAT IS goes beyond the “seen” phenomena, both the ancient freemystics and the modern physicists self-discover that “Basically, everything is one,” as observed the Nobel prize winning scientist, Barbara McClintock.
What should all this mean to you?
It tells us that we must not be afraid of shadows of unreality.
This whole world phenomenon, ultimately, is a magical unreality. Meaning thereby, that in the final analysis, even we are nothing but an is-ness of no-thing-ness.
For, that we call existence, is but an infinite indivisibility of unity.
Now, in this unreal world, the possibility of another unreality - black magic - is but an impossibility!
Learn to be a detached witness to all that is happening in this illusory world.
And whenever the “otherness” strikes your heart and mind, crush it like the bug it is in light of “oneness” that is the ultimate reality of this universe, and existence.
