Unified Magical Theory

From PathfinderWiki

The Unified Magical Theory is a hypothetical conceptual understanding of the ideal nature of arcane magic. Wizards who eschew formal study at a single school or of a single arcane discipline often attempt to pursue their own Unified Magical Theory through diverse, self-guided study.1
