The Five Universal Axes
Almost everyone knows the first three universal axes of space and time.
depicted as x, y and z accordingly.
The last two are the lesser known (or less thought about / less useful) axes.
and Parallel Universes:
The magic theorum for this line of magic states that everything that possibly CAN happen, HAS happened, in one parallel universe or another. If you'd like to put it schmancily, everything has a quantum probability of 1.
Thus to conjure, alter, manipulate or otherwise change the world around them, the magic user must focus his thoughts on bringing what they want from one parallel universe (in which the change already exists) to theirs. You could also say that with their magic they create a small rift along the space/time parallel axis, and drag what they want through it in to their world.
However, it is not clear whether the change is copied, or 'stolen', from the parallel universe. Is it a simple switch, whereupon the change in the parallel universe is swapped with the LACK of the change in our universe, to create the desired effect? Or does the magic user fool the universe in to manifesting the change by bending the 'p' axis, temporarily crossing the universe streams and forcing the universe they are in to take on the properties of the parallel universe?
I hope you have enjoyed my small proof on the use of theoretical and probable magic. :)
