5. The power of faith
The most foundational truth of the world is that ‘truth’ is what we make it be. This is most clearly expressed in the power of sorcery. The existence of sorcery in our world is a direct consequence of the belief in its existence. This inevitably develops into a vicious cycle where the power of sorcery and the belief in its power grow, or shrink, being simultaneously each other’s cause and effect.
Belief, or to use proper terminology, faith, is the very foundation of godhood, which indeed functions so much alike sorcery that I could almost call divinity an extrapolation of it. Coming to understand faith is therefore the most logical first step in such a quest. However, the human mind fails to see reason more often than not.
