In the physical universe, science postulates the existence of two disparate states: matter and energy. Hermetic theory purports different levels of
energetic states, from fire to frost. Primal religions cast natural and elemental forces into powerful, sometimes divine, roles. Through Forces, the
universe manifests impersonal energies. Those energies follow rules, though, and the mage with command of Forces can command the elements, be
it through quantum mechanics, electronic devices, mystical dances or chants to the patrons of primal archetypes.
Natural forces manifest through energetic Patterns, constructs of Quintessence in motion. Every force has its own unique properties, but they
all share the common root of Prime swirling through a Pattern. By manipulating that Pattern, the mage can turn forces into other forces, negate
various forces, increase or decrease their power or even create and banish energy from nothingness. Every magical style has a different means of
addressing these forces. Science considers certain forces to be the absence of others, while mystical Traditions usually consider negative and
positive forces — heat and cold, light and dark, motion and stillness — to be opposite but independent entities. Regardless, the understanding of
