Philosophiae Kineticae Principa Magica e Kinetica

Magical and Mathmatical Foundations of the Philosophy of Movement

Lex I --- Each interaction of magical or kinetical nature is to be between a transmitter and receiver of equal nature and will interact with both subjects instantaneously and simultaneously.
Lex II --- Each detraction or addition of magical potential in a receiver is directly opposite to an equivalent detraction or addition of magical potential of the transmitter.
Lex III --- Each kinetic force onto a subject is directly transmutable into a mechanical potential and vice versa and is proportional to the all of mass, total Magical potential and existing kinetical action in the respective subject.
The Fundamental Laws of Magokinetics
As Written by Jacob Alté
The work Philosophiae Kineticae Principa Magica e Kinetica by Jacob Alté is generally considered the most influential philosophical and scientific work in the recent century. Laying the groundwork for quantification of all magic and science, in this book Alté elegantly demonstrated his approach to postulate his fundamental proposals. Within the whole work, Altés extraordinary talent for structure and logical thinking is remarkably visible. Thus, the text is not only used as a basis for physical and magophysical lectures but also as an example of well thought out logic and argument structure.

Document Structure


The first section of the book collects and orders the works of many brilliant predecessors and their contributions to current magophysics. Alté sums up the assumptions and shortcomings of these theories in an amazingly factual tone, that few natural philosophers in his time were able to muster. He uses this introduction to draw parallels and connections in the many observations and postulates a possible unification of all his predecessors' assumptions - the three fundamental laws of magokinetics. In then he assumes a quantifiability to magical energy as well as a direct mathematical relation between mass, force, magical energy, potential energy and kinetic energy.
The Second part deals with proving the viability of his assumptions. Not only is he offering experimental predictions that kept busy many scientists for decades, but he also builds theoretical mathematical procedures, that revolutionized mathematics. He named his approach to calculate the surface under any curve infinitesimal calculus, unknowing that his helpful calculations on the side opened up a new, elegant way of mathematics.
The Third part of the work is a bit vague. Here, Alté leaves the area of pure facts and mathematics and theorizes possible outlooks for the field of Magoscience. It is, compared to the rest of the book, surprisingly filled with metaphors and fantastical illustrations of wonderous many apparatus. It is unclear if he was showing an outlook over his more unfounded theories or just used the space to dream of the future. Both would be fundamentally atypical for the factual Alté and he would refuse to explain this section of the book to anyone who asked, with a rare smile on his face.
