At atrociously high energy states, the properties of matter

change subtly and new miracles become possible. The Plasma
Accretion process is now dangerous and difficult to control, but
its products will soon become commonplace in our society.

—Sister Miriam Godwinson,
“The Lord Works”

Breakthroughs in Applied Physics and Industrial Base lead to an understanding of High Energy Chemistry. This discipline seeks to understand the properties and behavior of matter at very high temperatures, and results in new types of materials that remain in a stable plasma state even when superheated by intense laser stimulation.
