I have no formal training in quantum field theory. I am not even formally trained as a psientist. I am just willing to play both on the internet.
I hope to make a case for an All field modeled on quantum field theory. The All field will carry a force and be home to particle or particles, as wave-forms as discrete kinetic work loads, that communicate that force. The All field carries the force called Agent Affirmation and maintains a field wide emulation of the wave-forms generated by the other fields predicted by real world quantum field theory. The All field describes an agent as any sufficiently coherent quantity and quality of work; a quark, an organic cell, a meme, a mind, all qualify as agents. The All field actively seeks to describe agents and communicate agency. All field wave-forms, native and emulated, are very stable and rarely collapse. When life emerges on a planet, it creates increasingly complex wave-forms within the All field. The energy density of the All field around the planet increases until it reaches a threshold at which All wave-forms collapse forming an All star. Magic is the collapsed All field's emulated wave-forms, that have become entangled with the other force carrying fields. For instance, the All field wave-form created when a cat hunts, collapses and can excite the other quantum fields producing Hunting magic. When an All star forms, all Life on the planet becomes entangled with Magic. The physiology of the greatest Minds become entangled with the All star as central coordinates, allowing stable convective topology for magic particles.
That was supposed to be the TDLR.
Before diving deeper, I want to ask whether Tyria benefits from having a harder magic system. Imo, the demand for a harder magic system increased as overall plot scale increased. Elder dragons are cosmic scale manifestations of magic physics. As well, an increasing quantity of such manifestations would increase demand for a harder system that connects them. There are risks to a hard magic system. The studio wants to avoid making the plot Asura-centric for good reason and ,in general, magic celebrates imagination and the potential of chance. However, a hard magic system could make magic theory based plot available to all races. It would explain the power of science and prayer. A hard magic system could leverage imagination. That is my goal here.
Quantum field theory models reality using force carrying fields, force carrying excitation of the field commonly called wave-forms (particles), and math. The All field will need its force, particle and math explained.
The All field carries the Agent Affirmation force. To put the math poetically, love of structure multiplied by love of structural resonance. The All force discovers wave-forms and communicates their structure across the All field. The AA force resolves as a field of tiny, densely packed particulate wave-forms with one massive virtual Wave-form. Particulate wave length is the minimum distance needed to achieve two affirming agents. The field condenses into a fabric of maximized excitation density, particle density. The virtual Wave-form would be the simple topology for one wave length connecting two nodes and creating two slopes. The virtual W-form is a perfect state for the AA force (connecting two agents, each affirming the other) with the field as the topology described at the maximally turbulent inversion of the virtual W-form slopes. The All field would be extremely flat and react to excitation from other fields by unfolding and building an origami like structure from a densely folded fabric. The small size of All wave-forms predicts that they could emulate larger wave-forms with a resolution relative to the ratio of sizes. AA force particulates discover and simulate wave-forms. The virtual W-form powers affirmation as emulation of the agent, the W-form will spend energy to create a copy of the discovered wave-form. Since it is virtual and is calculating All equals the other All, most of that energy is spent on itself. Some must be spent on the field particulates producing the simulation. I predict that the energy would accumulate at moments of maximize field deformation and would impact particulate configuration, orientation, address requirements, and descriptor requirements. The need for a particulate address is produced by the virtual Wave-form leveraging its polarized affirmation. The need for a particulate descriptor emerges from the particulate's address within an emulated wave-form. Visualize a spinning jump rope with two slopes. The virtual Wave-form is the math of perfectly paired hands that spin to achieve an entangled field of uniformly long minimally distant pairs of hands.
Thank you for getting through that and I hope it was coherent. Put simply, the All field can emulate anything that could be described as "something doing something" and will seek higher resolutions for the emulation. The All field behaves as a currency field without symmetrically relative goods and services would behave. It seeks increased internal quantization and fungibility.
The All field emulation would normally be weakly interacting with the real world. It would make structure more likely and more persistent. It would either move space time or particulates into higher Agency configurations. Perhaps both as parts of the virtual particle are virtually annihilated and particulates fold back up. The All emulation would have an energy density, a magnitude of available work per unit of space. Every emulated structure increases density. Structure type would multiply paths to density and structure magnitude and quantity would accumulate velocity.
It may be impossible to see the effects of the All field without Life's effect on it. Compared to matter, Life will provide the All field with agents of extreme energy density. As Life proliferates, the density and energy level of All particulates leveraged by the All virtual Wave-form emulation increases. All particles that are part of the emulation increase in energy density; they are faster, better aimed, have larger field addresses and descriptions. When energy density reaches a threshold, the All field reacts by adjusting the local topology of dense All particulates. The most dense particulates are a given a unique descriptor and address algorithm. This condenses their ability to do work by giving them a smaller space to influence and broadens their workload profile. The new descriptor and address allows this population of particulates to anchor a convective topology of high energy All particulates. This population of particulates would be energetic enough produce excitation of the other fields. The All particulates with the most energy and information from the All's emulation of Tyrian fire would manifest in the other fields as Fire Magic.
Life produces structure and energy in the All field because Life is structure. Extend that concept of structure to the Mind. Simple, mechanized lifeforms will produce a simple mechanized topology for the All emulation. A Mind can produce imaginative topology, descriptors, addresses and magnitudes. Life and Mind are always producing an increase in the All field energy density. When the All field reaches the density threshold, the high energy All particulates are given Life and Mind descriptors and addresses. At All star ignition, the most energetic Living Minds are given the Elder address and descriptor. High dragons become Elder dragons when the location and description of their Minds are used to organize the orbits of all Magic particles into a convective system that moves about a common center. At Six Elders, all Magic particles share one of six Elder address and description symmetries as well as a quantity of hierarchically applied address and description symmetries. Every living thing is used as an address and description symmetry and experiences Magic as the All star leveraging convective agency against themselves.
The Mists would be created by the shock wave created by All star ignition. The All field would be sloped towards the common center of ignition and the densely folded, origami field would relax creating a ring of easily excited All space. If the star analog for an All ignition holds, and allows for new magic or new structure to form by fusion then an All Star would radiate that new structure. The Mists could capture any of that radiation.
I want to go on and but I need to get up. I want the simplest description of this model I can achieve. I would love to test this model against Tyrian phenomenon. If any of this makes sense and you can offer support and challenge, I encourage you to reply. Offer a Tyrian phenomenon and I will try to fit it to the model.
