The small battles fought between pairs of Magi are nothing. There is a much bigger game being played. Magi fight to control Reality. It is a conflict based on historical evidence (and interpretation of that evidence) of what happened at two epic events in global history: The Fall of Eden and the Fall of Bab’el. The evidence is colored by philosophy: scientific philosophy of how Reality works and moral philosophy of how Reality should work. More and more, it is fueled by fear and retribution. This conflict is now well into its fifth millennium… there is no sign of peace… and there is more than enough blame to share with everyone.
