A few roleplaying games lean heavily on the idea that magic is either a special language or mathematical incantations that tap into the heatbeat of the world.
This video from the New Scientist highlights those equations that rule the world with an almost exclusive focus on understanding waves. They don’t mean the waves that break on the shore but all the energy waves that hit us every day.
I can imagine a campaign setting where magic was, in essence, the ability to understand and influence these waves.
What do you think? Crazy idea?
