    No you do. Byegod is saying they think it's weird since the origin of circuits are tied to Solomon (I think?). But we've had Japanese mages using magic circuits since mages were introduced, so it's not like only Europeans have them.

    Magic circuits were never mentioned to be Solomon-related, and as far as I can remember, the only beings explicitly stated not to have them are completely disconnected from humanity (True devils and Elementals).

    It just feels weird to me, if that makes sense, was hoping it owuld be more breathing and walking or that type of thing, or cultivating or whatever.

    In fact, if I recall it correctly, Circe is explicitly stated to have Magic Circuits, and she's much older than Solomon.
    That said, I can understand the objection: having all forms of magic without a divine origin ultimately derive from King Solomon is extremely reductive, to say the least.

    You're better off looking into Peperoncino for that.

    For a moment, I felt cold and clammy.
    When I opened my eyes, the view was of a long passageway.

    Though abandoned, forgotten, and scorned as out-of-date dolls, they continue to carry out their mission, unchanged from the time they were designed.
    Machines do not lose their worth when a newer model appears.
    Their worth (life) ends when humans can no longer bear that purity.

    but thats just me
    Chen Gong uses Xia dynasty magic he inherited and though it was shit cuz it needed circuits, he then found Lu Bu and his suicide soldier tactics began. And Xia dynasty is supposed to be placed in like 2000 BC cuz its fictitious, (probably a texture in nasuverse) , so these chinese mages were playing with magic circuits long before Solomon was a twinkle in David's eye..

    Aren't magic circuits basically an organ? Isn't that like saying you're using a different kind of breathing that doesn't involve lungs?

    Considering that has been here since 2005, it wouldn't really be "new" and just business as usual. Antics and levity among the story is the staple.

    I want more future dere Rin. She had the right amount of lovestruckness and smug I like.

    Does this mean Rowling is a mage and by sharing mage secrets in her books she is a threat to Mystery who should be eliminated?

The question becomes: what relation do these phenomena bear to the sphere of Actual Real Supernatural Stuff posited by your urban fantasy setting? Most of the time these settings like to awkwardly ignore this question - when was the last time a character in TM read a fantasy novel, for instance? (or any novel at all for that matter) - but we've sort of bitten the bullet on it and drawn a firm conclusion: that if there's a supernatural thing that you (a normie) know about, then it's part of the veil of maya set up by a bunch of clock-punching demiurges in London.

    because imagine thinking JK Rowling isn't a PSYOP lol
