Today I stumbled upon an interesting article that speculates about the possibility of hyperadvanced alien civilizations could not just be extremely good at using the laws of physics in their favour, but change or adapt them to their will. Link to the article below. Could an advanced civilization change the laws of physics? This has made me think about how fantasy writers essentially do that in their fictions, like when defining the rules of magic in their worldbuildings (and in such degree of detail sometimes!). Under this perspective, fantasy looks like a subset of scifi, the gods are just members of hyperadvanced civilizations, and any magic is a science (which certainly they always are, regardless of their name, at least for me). So any thoughts about this or the article, my fellow scribes? P.D: Just to be clear, I don't pretend here to confront fantasy with scifi to see which genre has "the upper hand" on the other, I don't care about such triviality.
