    Everything can be explained by science, including the "magics" of Dr Strange. Thor himself stated that they live in a place where magic and science are one in the same, and Dr Strange continues that statement. Today, I'm proving to you that the magics of Dr. Strange can all be explained with science.

    Ya this theory does make a lot of sense. I did see the part where the city was being shifted coming, and honestly I kind of already knew the answer, but answer me this, what kind of quantum mechanic is being used when Doctor Strange goes Spirit Mode?

    maybe the refacted city if a sort of ultimate mixture of the matter creation light ability.

    imagine if the light created particles sort of refracted and copied the world round it infinitely in fractal like pattern , basically creating a giant refracted recreation of the city , like a mirror copying an image.

    Officially, the magic in Doctor Strange is described as being energy drawn from the universe, hence “universal energy”. There’s also mental energy (its capabilities are limited, and drains the life force of the user) and dimensional energy (an example would be the magic used by the Zealots, energy typically provided from another entity or dimension, aka Dormammu)

    It's magic because sure you can explain it with science but can you actually manipulate it without some external force or machine? answer is NO!
    Edit: Who cares what the producer of Dr. Strange thinks about what he thinks the power is. His 2 cents is worth shit just like that feminazi with Star Wars. And look how it turned out for SW...
