I am creating a world where the creation of matter through magic is possible. Right now I am leaning toward the creation of a new subatomic particle that can directly convert energy in the form of mana/magic. Each individual has a set limit of this energy that can be manipulated by will.
Other than that, other things don't make sense. This magic seems to be messing up the law of thermodynamics, Mass cannot be created or destroyed but clearly, that is not the case in this universe" What did not make sense is that there were no obvious changes in the other things around him. The most intriguing aspect was that in a closed environment such as this planet, the matter/energy gain still seems equal. If any hobo around the block could create matter, matter would just keep on accumulating but it seems that the net-loss, net-gain still applied in this universe. Of course on earth, there were ways of creating matter but not in such an incredible way. The creation of matter involved mainly particle accelerators, and huge amounts of energy. The particle accelerators would try and smash photons (units of Electromagnetic Frequency also thought of as elementary particles that light is composed of) and if it was successful this, in turn, would give an antiproton or antielectron with their equivalent proton or electron pair.
Edit: I just wanted to add that the said character saw water gushing out of a woman's palm like a high powered hose with no recoil. Also planning to make the mages mainly elementalists. Water, Air, Fire, Earth
The said individual observed magic for the first time, and there was sort of a creation of matter. I know that there is something wrong with the text above but I can't put my finger on it. Please kindly point this out.
