The Witching-Other proposes that the archetypal witch, as a conduit for magical understanding, must remain remote to us. Both historical records and the workings of practitioners comprise a ‘presenced’ or embodied form of understanding, and are inordinately connected to the witch-conception. Hamilton-Giles further suggests that the witch has as much to do with metaphysical absences than physical presences, thus the plenary figuration of what we sense-experience only takes us so far in our comprehension. With the figure of the witch, there is something else dwelling beyond the veil; as a consequence the ‘witching-other’ appears as the absence of what is considered present. This sense of being absent corresponds with those silences contained within narratives, or the critical lacunae in sensorial understanding.
