We are storytellers. we love our characters, their struggles, and their growth.
Over time we came across problems with continuity across our stories worldbuilding which caused conflict with eachother, sometimes in ways that prevented us from telling the story we wanted to. It became important to dictate matters of fact that if always followed, allowed us to regulate the way worldbuilding occured in our stories, keeping them aligned, and sane.
We took advanced understandings of quantum mechanics, theories about the fabric of the universe, about the substance of reality, and perverted it for our own use. This document is a fictional set of rules and laws that dictate how our universe always works. It does not align with reality, but requires a fairly comprehensive understanding of our reality to abstract and understand.
These rules will usueally not be conciously present in our stories, but we do tightly adhere ourselves to them when we write our stories. And understanding them may lead to better understanding of lore and hidden details for those who seak it.
The following is complex, it is not easy to digest. Its mostly made up, and has no bearing on reality.
The following is constantly changing, it is never final, and not always organized well, we apologize, wish you luck, and hope you enjoy
Core foundations and principles of acting forces on the universe:
All matter in the multiverse is considered conscious matter. Someone made of conscious matter, who interacts with other conscious matter, and perceives motion through space, is considered a living entity. Magic is the manipulation of conscious matter by willpower, and attunement with the fabric of the universe. The conscious matter of the universe is broken up and shared among an infinite amount of smaller and smaller entities. Such that cells operate in our bodies with their own perceptions of motion through space, and their own life spans, and actions, we operate with our own perception of motion through space and have our own lifespans in which we make up greater chunks of conscious matter. Our own actions can wreak havoc on the conscious matter we control, for example cutting off an arm, leads to the death of all the cells in our arm, whereas the action of the entity one level of consciousness above us, or that we occupy, could cause the death of a large populous of us. Perceived as natural disasters, the disappearance of portions of a solar system, or even a galaxy, or a whole universe. Since it's believed there is an infinite amount of conscious matter in the infinite universe, next to infinite universes, there are infinite entities, in a infinitely complex hierarchy of power. Because their can be infinitely larger units of conscious matter, there can be entities that appear to have god like capabilities to the units of conscious matter it is made of. Because infinity.
There are countably infinite universes, all vibrating at different frequencies. But occupying the same theoretical space. There are 10 dimensions of space in each universe. The first three are occupied by the conscious matter of the universe, the fourth to tenth dimensions are occupied by the operational fabric of the universe. Which is what allows consciousness to manipulate matter in the first three dimensions. Dimensions 4-10 are equal in countably infinite space as the first three dimensions, and exists in the form of threads or ley lines, that thread the first three dimensions together. These leylines cycle through different vibrational frequencies in the form of a wave. Meaning they do not always exists in all universes. And move through them. As we go up a dimension, the spatial complexity of the leylines increase, and their existence in the first three dimensions become more complicated to observe. As only a portion of the fabric of reality is perceivable in our three dimensions, but smaller and smaller so. Meaning there also exists pockets of magical power. There are massive sections of universes, in various frequencies, that have little to no amount of universal fabric feeding it magical properties. This is what gives logic to the fact that there are entire worlds, or galaxies, where it's entities, have little to no magical capability, and others with massive amounts of it. Entities that are constantly close to the fabric of the universe, or ley lines, are naturally attuned to it, and are more easily able to manipulate it, it simply forms as a sensory detail. This does mean that with practice, someone completely untuned, and unaware of magic, could travel to a location where the presence of a leyline is strong, and learn to use magic. However they are unlikely to ever reach levels of skill to efficiently manipulate conscious matter easily. This also means that entities that are highly adept and in tune with the frequencies and sensory details of manipulating matter, could go very far away from a leyline, and still have some level of influence.
Everyone has their own timeline, or perception of motion through space. Like thread. Looping your own thread back lets you change your interaction with other peoples threads, while maintaining your own memories of your entire thread, including going back and changing others threads. I.e. their perception of motion through 3 dimensional space.
Depending on the strength of ley lines in a universe, a unit of conscious matter can move it's perception of motion i.e. time and of its three dimensions between infinite levels of existence. This concept needs work, but allows us to explain things like the mirror dimension, the astral plane, and how one can access it or perceive it.
Since all matter within the first three dimensions are purely conscious units of the consciousness machine that makes up all universes, there is no soul, but each unit of conscious matter may be called a soul for ease of thought. Upon death, the thread that is that units perception of motion, or “time”, simply continues. It may change frequencies, meaning it started in a different universe, or it may simply merged with the thread of the next largest unit of conscious matter, giving that entity an imperceivable increase in their capability to manipulate the fabric of reality.
In all fields of science, any action has an equal and opposite reaction. When manipulating conscious matter with ill intent, or with malice, the action will have immediate reaction or backlash. Preventing most beings from doing things of incredible evil with the manipulation of matter. However there is no sentient entity controlling this literal form of karma, it is based on the intent of the entity manipulating matter. For example, murder would normally be considered an act of malice or evil, however, if say a King were to use magic to quickly and painlessly kill someone who was diseased and risked killing the rest of the kingdom, they act not with malice, but with the intent of saving everyone else. Especially if the entity he kills is accepting of this fate. There is no negative backlash because as far as the king and all entities that perceive this action are concerned, the king is doing the morally correct thing. However, if an entity with truly evil intent, firmly believes that they are doing the right thing, if the actions they take still are perceived as negative, or out of malice by an amount of entities in contact with this evildoer, they still receive negative backlash, as the majority of the conscious matter involved in the action is against it. This is a fundamental law of the multiverse. And requires immense power to subdue, or manipulate directly, and requires both spatial and temporal manipulation powered by direct contact by possibly several leylines. And is not advised. You can be evil, just don't do evil stuff with magic or suffer the consequences.
Revert: Building on units of conscious matter and their ability to manipulate reality, karma is purely the negative response of one or many units of consciousness in regards to your behavior or actions.Or karma is a combination of the perception of others on your actions, AND the natural backlash of the universal laws
Links and resources for later consideration:
Interesting notions to implement at a latr date.
The idea that the universe is probabilistic by nature until observed by conscious matter.
However matter not under observation can still be operated on, as the universe doesn't rely on observers to exist.
