I imagine that it'd be comparable to the Fate series. Better, worse, and the same all at once... I suppose that it boils down to how OP magic can be, and who may be granted extreme talent.

Even if the world was magical, there would still be laws or some "mechanics" like in mmorpgs.

most likely not.. just like in gate.. magic is not very affective do to time needed for larger spells. while normal magic would be owned by a guy with a hand gun.

All it is more flashy..




like in GATE ? the manga/anime series? you are joking right ?

reality vs fiction comparison?

probably not for a long time. There would be decades if not generations worth of time before laws and society would be able to adjust to it. If that happened, Id pray to little baby jesus that I be born after magic was successfuly integrated into society.

Just wondering what every one thinks about this, do you think the world would be better if people could use magic?


The fundamental rules of the Universe would need to be different to incorporate magic. If one of us were moved to such a universe we would probably find it incomprehensible rather than better or worse. It might even be deadly to us. Who knows how long it would take for evolution to produce a creature that could survive in the radiation of a magical energy. It might even make a lifeless universe.

If you suddenly dropped magic on OUR world it'd be like the effects on primitive societies when High Tech (for the time) colonists arrived on the shores. What came out of the wreckage might be better, but all of us would find the process worse (and maybe lethal).

I enjoy these science-theory questions.

Depends on your definition of magic. To me there is no difference between magic and science because in anime magic are just part of the world that people manipulate. Science can do the same thing. If magic is some unknown power then no the world wouldnt be better it would be chaotic since there will be random magical threats all the time.


OOOh. think what boost that would give the Defense industry!

If mana was just another source of tangible energy, then hell no.

We've got enough energy crisis woes.

Healing options for cancer and things would be helpful.
Also gender issues but have better solutions.

Over all i figure it would be improvement, even with destruction options.

Magic already exists. Witches too. They can send a spell via the Internet now lol. Something worse than a virus.

Definitely not!

Yeah there would be some miracles and beautiful ways to use it but trust me, there would be more people using it for bad things than for good.

Unfortunately.
