Dr. Megan LeGassy's Research
Is magic decreasing in the world?

Dr. Megan LeGassy reports her research findings at a press conference on the stairs of MMIT, outside her laboratory. A crisp morning breeze russles her hair from time to time while she lectures from behind the podium.

“The number of magical anomalies in our world has shown a statistically significant decrease in the last decade. We may be past the high water mark of this intrusion into our normal lives. The anomalies are taken as an indicator of the amount of magic that is present, the higher the magic, the more anomalies. So, as the number of anomalies decreases so too will the meta human population and the abilities of so called wizards. If the trend continues we may see a total lack of magic, with a return to normalcy, within 50 years. This may be too long for the older people in the audience but at least our younger generation might be able to life without magic.

This also could have disastrous consequences for the meta-humans. While it’s impossible to know, there is speculation that they will become sterile without magic, or even have catastrophic genetic failures and die. Without magic to support their genetic anomalies it’s unclear what will happen.

We believe this may be related to how our reality aligns with the astral plane. The more closely aligned, they are the more magic bleeds into our reality. We believe that, much like Haley’s Comet, there is some cycle to the alignment of the two realities. This gives us hope that the future will not be aligned with the astral plane enough to support magic. This also explains why the UGE event occurred before goblinization. Goblinization likely takes more magic to support and therefore needed a stronger alignment with the astral reality.

These findings have been independently verified and are going through a peer review process right now. You should see my paper published in the next issue of “The Journal for Medicine & Magic.” Until then it is freely available on the matrix along with the supporting data. Thank you, I’ll take questions now.”
