Mysticism is at the heart of the Incarna cosmology. It adds a layer of on top of the normal material interactions within the organized multiverse. This mysticism incorporates ideas of how all action, magic, time, and energy comes together based on a notion called The Pattern.
The Pattern is the perceived continuously unfolding, interwoven nature of the multiverse. It is made up of Essence (describes an entity; Aptitude represents the nature and Anima is the energy), Spark (interactions between things; a multitude of defined damage types reflect its manifestations), and Foundation (the flow – from idea to negation; Aether, Brilliance, Umbragia, and Void).
