This is bound to be confusing due to the varying definitions of magic, and may be considered opinion-based, but I don't understand which definition to use. If you guys could point me in the definition that best describes what I'm looking for, that would be nice, too. So, I looked at this answer ( https://www.quora.com/Is-the-Force-more-similar-to-dark-energy-dark-matter-or-neither ) And it makes sense, but how might one use that to do things like create a fireball? If this is too much of one thing, please tell me how i might make it better.
So both are pretty weakly interacting and so are very hard for scientists to detect. We only really see their effects on a massive scale, and how they interact with things like galaxies.
So, what if your magic is a way to energize these dark forces and turn them into something that is less weakly interacting for a while.
With certain spells dark energy could be drawn from the universe and used to heat air into a plasma ball propelled at an enemy, or to power other spells.
Dark matter could be condensed and drawn out so as to create things like a temporary bridge to cross a chasm.
But you don't really need to explain how it works, just set up your rules, and set up the limitations of what it can do (more important).
