Using these energy sources people speak words of power. Using the right time the right place you can do anything. Using words instead of math.
some powerful numbers that I know are 40, 14, 5. 40 days and 40 nights where how long the great flood lasted. There's 14 lines in a sonnet and there's 5 points in a star. These factors can come in when using witchcraft technology. You could also use a haiku.
I believe when using this technology you can manipulate events and make strange things happen. No ones been able to do anything spectacular like split the atom yet with this technology. I think I may have found a way to do more with this technology. Using electricity and putting it through an electrolyte you may be able to do more. The only electrolyte I can think of would be blood. I dont know how to make an artificial electrolyte.
People have been practicing this stuff for a long time. People have also been known to drink blood when performing these rituals. People also know the more people you have when doing this stuff the more powerful it is.
That's just what I think of it. Im not good with math or words but it makes sense to me.
