Alchemy Rules

More work on the magic system of the new series, today.  Lots of reading.

I find it interesting how the same themes run through magic systems, paganism, alchemy and science.

Yes, science.

Alchemy was once practiced side-by-side with early scientific principles and experimentation, until scientists “learned better” and parted ways with the mystical chemists.

Only, it occurs to me that alchemy’s search for First Matter (prima materia) and the Philosopher’s Stone is nothing more than modern day science’s search for a unifying Theory of Everything.

Tomorrow, I finish building the magic system and move on to the characters and species to feature in the series.
