How could matter, or something that behaves similarly to matter, be conjured without absurdly over excessive amounts of energy under following assumptions:
- energy can be added to the equation at any point due to magic
- magic can create bonds between "magicised" atoms/molecules (unspecified if it can attract or connect)
And preferably with following properties:
- should be temporary
- liquid and solid (or liquid/solid-like) states should be achievable
I've come up with some ideas on how could this work, but had no clue what would be the numbers:
- Air particles are connected together creating aerogel-like substance
- Air particles are compressed to denser states
If any of those two examples is any good, I'd really appreciate an explanation with number or at least estimates.
Seeing that my mistake of not including more in-depth definitions was a rather significant one, and I'd like to correct it by clarifying some things:
- definition of word "temporary" in this case is as follows: "as long as there is (magical) energy provided"
- word "matter" is supposed to represent anything that can be touched, viewed from non-scientific human perspective; opposite of "nothing
- "conjure" means an action that describes a situation when a state of nothing existing becomes a state of existing of something (object; matter) without any apparent movement of said something from another place.
- "numbers" include both numerical values and formulas
