Default Re: [Thaumatology] A good set of Realms for a 12 Realm, 3-level Threshold-based syste

Possibly have the four elements each cover their own forms of energy?

Fire is heat, light and maybe electricity.
Earth is gravity and possibly magnetism.
Air could be kinetic energy? Maybe electricity too, justified as lightning being a form of weather and weather being mostly controlled by air.
Water could be chemical energy? Or cold, if you have cold and heat as separate forms of energy (which is nonsense in terms of physics, but makes sense in an instinctive way).
