Alternatively, the nature of reality could be contingent on the narrative framework with which an observer approaches it. Expect Standard Model particles? All your experiments show Standard Model particles. Expect elemental planes? Your wizardry shows elemental planes.
The wave function collapses in weirder ways than we can imagine... or perhaps it collapses as we imagine.
Ah, but if there are other planes, and those planes can be represented as additional axes in a space-time graph (Z', Z", Z"' and so forth), then couldn't the extra matter/energy be routed along, say, the Z' axis during the casting of a spell. Which could correspond to, possibly, the Abyss. Which would explain why demons are so angry and fire immune.
I love science!
