Today it is synonymous with knowledge of the visible, science, and supernatural, translated commonly as "hidden knowledge" implying that it is only meant for certain people and it is a knowledge that must be kept hidden.

Direct insight into the occult is said to be achieved by using both the mind and spirit.
