Magic is the art of turning aether into substance. Some forms of magic do deviate from this general mechanic, some magic forming from within a person or by some alternative means. Aether emanates from the Cosmic Nexus, each node of that nexus being its very own, unique nexus - such as Earth's Nexus. Magic allows users to perform many incredible, or minor, special feats.
Aether is the aethereal form of magic; an intangible and invisible gas that hangs in the atmosphere throughout the Multiverse. It can be drawn in to create magical crafts or spells, and be converted into other magical forms. It is generally the material used in spellwork and is the most potent form of magic (citation needed).

Space Orca, a man already proficient in soul-channelling, also learnt magic from Merlin. He uses magic to cause a creature to relocate, levitate and even explode[NeS1 1].
