This is an extremely fascinating work. Just reading the book felt very close to the experience of actually reading some book about forbidden magic from some impossible, existentially doomed world. To the point that I was surprised and intrigued once events started to unfold.

There exists a small chance that I may have made a slight mistake and doomed humanity. I will keep you posted.

I liked the setting but I do wish there were more chances to move around. Maybe I just missed that part. I also have so many questions about what exactly happened and if the same thing will happen to all the other worlds.

This is illegally good. You have definitely broken some laws to make this, and when I work out what those are I will be contacting the appropriate authorities. Good day.
