To what do you refer? Do you mean Ryan's initial post? You should use the quote feature, so that people can read the text and follow the link:Ryan those are fighting words ...
The book has no justification. The ability to perform spells is determined by how well you can say/think them and wave your wand.
When you click +QUOTE it is adding the reply to any replies you already have there, so the list builds up in the 'Review Selected Messages' popup dialogue. That list should zero itself out once you've inserted the ones you want.I get the quote from every thread in every forum I've liked and or visited for the entire log in session.
The thread question is specifically the source of a wizards power. The worldbuilding of the books does contain many rules about the magic (though the worldbuilding itself is weak in favour of entertainment, which is by no means necessarily a bad thing), for instance:Ryan those are fighting words and we're supposed to be nice. Harry Potter is fully justified. It is written at a third grade level and fully explained. Anyone who has cracked the book knows that wizards are born magical and can perform some magic by accident before training begins. Once schooled in magic, wizards learn how to control that magic. Wizards are not all equal just as some Muggles are not all IQ equal.
If you click the reply button on someone's post a copy of that post is automatically quoted for you. If you hit the quote button the forum software adds the quote to a list of quotes. If you click "insert quotes" in the bottom left of the text box you can review all quotes in that list and remove them as needed,I did not see 'mentor' by your name but hey I'll bite. When replying to a thread part and selecting the quote button I do not just receive the remarks of the person I want to respond to. Rather I get the quote from every thread in every forum I've liked and or visited for the entire log in session. It is inconvenient.

I just "ACCIO QUOTE!"You can also quote a piece of text manually if you want.
In the above post, you see that your text ended with a closing [ /QUOTE ]
If it had started with an opening [ QUOTE ], it would have made a proper quotation.
Each wand has a unique length, core material, and flexibility. I believe it is the core material that give the power.
But these just move the question farther down the line.The cores are from magical creatures, so yeah. Harry and Moldevort have Phoenix feather cores in their wands, both from Faux, Dumbledore's pet.
I forgot to mention, this is rubbish.I think that the source of wizard power is magnetic fields produced by cellular electromagnets in their muscles. They can ionize particles in the world with a type of subatomic particle that comes to earth from the sun, they can capture it through their skin (kind of like a plant capturing photons) from the sun. Their cells capture these 'wizard particles' and redirect them to matter outside the body so that they may allow the matter to follow the local magnetic fields generated by the wizards, however their exotic nature allows the particles to behave in exotic ways, these special magnetic fields only affect 'wizard particles' and NOTHING else, on the same note the 'wizard particles' can only be directed by 'wizard magnetic fields'. Evolution 'Jerry-Rigged' the language controlling center of the brain to also control the position and shape of the magnetic fields that direct the 'wizard particles'. Actually saying the words also makes the muscles in the face to produce the magnetic fields of certain shapes based on the type of facial movement. The English language was actually created when wizards associated real world phenomenon with the results of their vocal spells. 'Wizard Particles dissipate from conjoined atoms over time and may even dispel thermal energy over many light years evenly. This explains where they go even though their signature can not feasibly be measured. Talismans can manipulate 'magic' by being imbued with certain 'wizard magnetic fields' they can be magnetized by these special magnetic fields. Wands augment magic because they contain dead cells of organisms who were especially good at generating 'wizard magnetic fields' the structure of the cells helps stabilize the fields produced by the wizard. They contain proteins that even though denatured can still direct 'wizard magnetic fields' Keep in mind that these 'wizard magnetic fields' are not actually magnetic at all, they only seem to share a few properties. Imagine it as an undiscovered force in the universe that does not really affect anything abiotic unless structures are designed to harness it. Also I made all of this up right now, this is just a way for me to imagine the reason wizards can wield magic and muggles can not. I use this to explain biologically and physically why they can use magic. The source of the energy is the food the wizard eats. (Just like how most animals get energy). The specialized cells and proteins are inherited in the DNA as complete dominant traits. Mudbloods can manipulate magic because a even more dominant (IKR :D) trait was not present that normally suppresses the wizard genes. Wizards need a lot more energy to survive than muggles. In some survival scenarios a muggle would be naturally selected for more so than an unskilled unaided wizard.
I was sitting in a waiting room on my phone, perhaps it made me a little bit nuts from waiting so long. Once I started there was no stopping the flow. Maybe if I mention that the laws used pertain to phenomenon that are not traditional, in that case you can make anything obey 'physics law' in a fictional universe. They are just revisions to the fictional worlds universal laws. :DBut intricately reasoned, elaborately pondered rubbish!
