    There's quite a lot of things in real life when it comes to our "laws and concepts" where we've simply decided that "this is how it is" because it fits (best) with our understanding, or things that we simply attribute meaning and whatnot to, a good example being projecting our own human attributes onto non-human things, talking about those things as they were objective fact. It is of course, IRL, a lens through which we view the rest of the world, but textures are effectively just that, but now they're also magical and conceptually true.

    There's also Nanatsu no Taizai as the closest thing we'll ever have to a Fate/prototype adaptation

    I don't see the immediate similarities? And this is coming from a Nanatsu no Taizai fan.

    Well, aside from the shared Arthurian references and those to British folklore and myth.

    Sonic and the Black Knight, unironically, has shared themes (and it's not the round table)

    why are reality marbles considered forbidden research by the association? it seems kind of silly that they would ban the thing that gets them closest to true miracles and shaking Gaia's hold on magecraft

    It's more forbidden in the sense of "anyone who succeeds gets dissected to figure out how they did it, so don't try it".

    Isn't the concept of magic really just a science you're unsure of the concepts of? If we could accurately gauge spiritual elements with instruments and express it in numbers and calculations, isn't it then a science?
    The idea that the world is aa we view it seems to be strongly expressed in these works.

    Science is a methodology, nothing more, nothing less

    Unless people think biology isnt a science because it doesnt build technology which a lot of people seem to lessen science purely into

    Isn't Saber's dream of avoiding taking Caliburn out of the stone similar to Archer's goal of preventing the Hero Shirou Emiya from being born?

    It's a methodology of learning. When dealing with a world which functions its own way, translation into human terms (or even your personal terms) inevitably occurs, and the original is rendered less complete by it. It's more magical the less it is 'understood', but 'technological progress', 'research', or 'logos', is obviously involved in tapping into it at all.

    The primary trick though, is that you are not publishing an academic paper for the entire world to see to advance mankind, you're just doing lab experiments to give your kids superpowers.

    Mystery is, by definition, something that should not be measured.

    If the Titanomachia happened in space before the Greek god-ships even reached Earth, do we know how Chiron being Kronos' son fits in? Was Chiron another ship besides the Olympians? Did pieces of the Titans reach Earth anyway and make offspring there?
