The third law is definitely a favorite, as is I think to some the turn around that magic
when advanced enough is indistinguishable from technology
The reason for this I think is because they are in fact on a level the same thing. Each is in effect taking advantage of the way the universe
works to achieve a purpose...the simplest of technology is using a rock to hit something harder...the simplest of magic likely to cause fright (I'd say if someone is wielding a rock menacingly
I'm likely to be a hair frightened). They differ at the root
only in the methodology
, necessarily, and requirements, frequently.
So both progress, science builds compasses, magic knows the way. Science builds cities, magic founds nations. Science weaves carbon
, magic weaves robes of power
. Science crosses the stars
, magic crosses the planes of reality
. What seemed at first to be a line ever shifts and blurs.
If technology and magic share a universe, which is of witch
(typo retained for pun
ness)? Are our precious laws of physics the be all and end all, magic a subset there of, merely shifting the states in the structure? Or is magic the true base, the meta reality
the greater set? Do we need a new term? It wouldn't be the first time, for we humans
to have to ask that question.
