Paradigm

A paradigm organizes a Mage’s understanding of reality, how the universe works, and what things mean. It also provides the Mage with an understanding of how to change reality, through specific magical techniques. For example, an alchemical paradigm might describe the act of wood burning as the wood “releasing its essence of elemental Fire,” while modern science would describe fire as “combustion resulting from a complex chemical reaction.” Paradigms tend to be idiosyncratic to the individual Mage, but the vast majority belong to broad categories of paradigm, e.g., Shamanism, Medieval Sorcery, religious miracle working, and superscience.
