Although most of what Symbinote already is is not changing, the name is. After a lot of thinking and searching, I decided on Automana to be Symbinote’s new name. Along with this change, there will be many other changes to existing names in the database. Plus, there will be new names to features that I wanted to add but didn’t yet have official names for them.
Valhalla is the hall of fame of the most accomplished champions. It doesn’t matter what type of display that the champion has garnered their acclaim. As long as it is recognized by the selection committee. Of whom are elected by the public.
Anima is a unique state of being that is formed by the combined existence of the soul/spirit and corporeal body.
Whether Risen or Invoked, understanding one’s anima is essential to figuring out who you are.
An astra is a visual projection of a Risen’s spirit or soul. A sort of avatar of the spirit. Usually taking the appearance of the corporeal body it’s bonded with.
By the time the Magic of Everything comic’s and book series’ events take place, 20 years have past.
The comic will be a floating timeline and thus, it will always be 20 years ahead from our current moment.
The Gift, otherwise known as free will, is considered the greatest power a being can possess. To have free will is to think for yourself.
It is a power that many people, institutions, and authorities have sought to control in and take from others.
The series formerly titled Justice is to be now called Free Matter. I chose this title because free matter plays a central part in the series.
Free matter prevents the bodies of many beings in the Magic of Everything from being incarcerated or restrained. At least nothing beyond a few days. If at all. With such a scenario some of the questions the series puts forth are, how do you enforce laws? How would society punish law breakers? Are executions the solution? Should society rehabilitate rather than punish? How do you conduct trials? What is justice?
As a concept, Symbinote was to be a book series set in the Magic of Everything universe. While also, playing an important part in the Magic of Everything’s economic system. But it was also to be a web project promoting its real-life application. After much thought, I decided the best way to convey the Symbinote project’s ideas was through the medium of an online comic. Set in a timeline and world like our own.
Huna is often referred to as the crux of living beings. It is a cross that they most bear and overcome if they are to have a chance of achieving bliss. The exceptions being divine entities capable of only good.
One of the main reasons for me creating the Magic of Everything is to explore the dynamics of human nature.
For me, human nature has always been the dominant force holding us back from being the best we can be. Hence, why the world is and has been in such dire shape.
