So, I am trying to build a world in which stuff like magic is possible, but the "magic" here is physically explicable by science, although the inhabitants in the world may be a long way from that explanation.
The explicit effect of the magic:
people, or otherwise magical machinery can do things like glowing, heating, cooling, telekinesis (that conserve momentum), or catalyzing unlikely reactions. All of which macroscopically preserve the laws of physics.
proposed canonical explanation:
I want to know if this explanation, which includes a few assumptions, is plausible:
It is assumed that subatomic particles is much more complex than is apparent to observations up to date, and that persistent modification to subatomic particles is possible.
At some point, some alien intelligence modified a vast number of particles, making them function like subatomic robots and inducing behaviors that is unlike any naturally occurring particles.
To take an example that may be impossible itself but serves to demonstrate the general point: A modified particle can behave like a neutrino until it enters a strong electromagnetic field, at which point it begin to behave like a positronium.
These modified subatomic particles interacts with ordinary matter and each other to produce the effect of apparent magic.
