    Hi there. I was re-reading this thread I created:

    And you were one of the users that had the best answers for what I wanted to know. I was thinking about this character concept: a Mage that has scientific background and likes to rationalize as much as possible, but still knows that his Will is the ultimate factor of casting an effect.

    I would like to see your opinion on a hermetic that has a scientific view of life. Also,...

    It does require them, though, at least in the official storyline. Clearly the Orpheus storyline is going to go very differently with Stygia still intact....

  • If it is helping you communicate important ideas to your group, that's fantastic. The whole breaking Spheres into arbitrary groupings that match up with the Metaphysical Trinity has never done anything for me, though.

The pattern group is the only one that made sense to me because Life, Matter, and Forces make sense as the spheres that make up the world as it is experienced, and even then I'd throw Spirit and Mind into that section or a related one.

    To me the image that explained them as a...

  • That's an interesting way of looking at it. Is that because math is frequently about relationships and Correspondence is the sphere or relationships?...
