In Thipbalene, magic is viewed as the fundamental force behind all nature, creation and life itself. The Thipbaleni believe all people are capable of magic acts, while considering a wider range of activities as magical.
While most other societies explain magic as a force either created or governed by deities, the Thipbaleni view magic as a natural force, therefore they are only significant society not to worship any gods.
Scholars believe this theory reflects Thipbalene's founding and history. The city originated on one what is now considered to be the earliest patch of magic in the current age. Magic energy in the area grew along with the city, influencing the city's power and development. The Thipbaleni thus consider all improvement to be magic, or at least supported by magic.
Existing In Flow Edit
The closest idea to a religion in Thipbalene is the aspiration to remail In Flow as much as possible. To be in flow is to be engaged and focused in productive work, while still finding ease in the process. Traditional Thipbaleni magic training emphasises the need for the Philosopher to remain in flow while casting to ensure the best result. Similarly, training in crafts and professions pushes the student to achieve Flow in all their work.
The desire to exist In Flow extends to a Thipbaleni's personal life. Relationships, domestic duties, conversation and disagreement are all considered virtuous if they are conducted In Flow. If a Thipbaleni is in flow, they can feel assured that magical forces are guiding and supporting them in their endeavour.
