So sorry about all the other ways I phrased this question. So I am writing a world where there is lots of magic, but the magic is actually a kind of science that our world(the real world) just hasn't understood yet. This new science is used in many ways. I have no idea how the magic will work. The key features that the magic can do are: levitate someone, change their shape, and lets them control the five basic elements of life(in their culture): Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Blood. I really want a way to this new science/ technology to be somehow controlled by the different races and cultures. Again, sorry for the bad phrasing of the other two revisions.

If you understand magic, it aint magic. It's science.
If the universe is a giant computer simulation, magicians would be people who find exploits or have elevated user permissions. Crafting a new spell would be just like writing a new method.
