nature of the universe
I know, pretty daunting title there, eh?
On a smaller scale though, many of us have past life memories or beliefs that we were able to use magic, strange supernatural abilities or even tricks farther and wider than seen in Japanese cartoon shows. Yet in this world, this is just not really possible (save the fluffy claims of people throwing fireballs and shapeshifting into giant 8 ft tall killer wolves, if that were possible throughout Human history, it'd be a lot more common, and if so many people on the internet could do it, then it'd be on youtube by now).
My question is why, and my theory is as follows: Each universe and plane is based on a different set of laws that bind everything contained therein. This universe has strict laws of science and physics as we have perceived them so far. We refer to things that are metaphysical as being so because they don't fit into the laws of existence in this universe. Metaphysical exists because we can think and perceive of what may be slightly outside these laws as a result of our minds not being physical, just the brain that houses it.
Other planes of existence on the other hand are not written in such a way, let's say for instance that willpower is a stronger force there, or maybe the other laws are not as strict and therefore magic and the transfer of energy, let alone the rate of energy required for certain actions, are entirely different.
The other side of the coin are the stories of beings that have come here and done phenomenal miracles, most namely being Angels. I find this to be as a result of Angels being outside this universe and designed to build and maintain it as well as others. Similarly to this forum, they basically have admin powers. I as an admin are outside most of the "laws" the govern the construction of the forum, I can edit your posts, delete them if I wish, view your information, move your topics or split them and even write in Taiaka's signature. What if Angels were similar, their purpose makes them able to alter things in this universe and thus when they are here, they can perform amazing feats.
So what are your thoughts on the matter?
