Symbol of Autonomism by Naelin
In the religious belief of Autonomism, practised in the Dhalmain Island, the universe and its inner workings are believed to have been created by the primogenial existence of Curiosity, who gave birth to the first Laws of the Universe as she started wondering about things.   The Physics was the sixth Law of the Universe to be created, after Curiosity, Time, Space, Directions and Dimensions, and is known in the Authonomist mythos as Dencaza.  


Masculine pronouns are used in Autonomist writings when referring to Dencaza.  

Dencaza in the Autonomist Mythos


In the Autonomist genesis, when Alocardenas, the Curiosity, finished creating the first four laws by her wondering, those themselves had Curiosity of their own. Time, Space and Directions wondered how would they interact with their sibling Dimensions, and as an answer, the Law of Physics was born.   He saw how many things could be done between him and his siblings, and he wondered if some day one of the laws' creations would be able to defy them.
By this curiosity, he enabled the existance of life, but since nothing had shape yet, life was not possible, so his next thought created the Matter, and the Matter created The World.   Eventually, his line of thought would be granted when Vhas, The World, asked itself the same question Isimoje had before, and with all pieces in place life finally emerged, but it had inside the new final Law, the Law of Intention. This new Law ate Alocardenas and kept her all for themselves, and since then all Laws of the Universe laid devoid of Curiosity and the ability to wonder.  


According to the Autonomist Afterlife belief, those whose life most closely reflected teachings and purpose of the Law of Physics will become part of him after their death.   Those who want to turn into Physics ask to have parts of their deceased body melded and worked into jewellery and weapons. The rest of their remains are usually cremated.

Dencaza's Teachings

The Law of Physics is taught by his priests to represent the almost-immutable properties of the inorganic materials.
Physics was the law that first wondered if something would defy him and the other laws for a reason: The Law of Physics is unyielding, stern and vast.
Devoutees of Dencaza learn both to play with these aspects and work with his rules and that life is the answer to his question, and therefore life alone can and will manage to defy him.  


Dencaza is considered the patron of blacksmiths, gymnasts and jewellers, among others.
