Imagine that the world we live in is like a tv show. In this world magic is real. Would math be reliable in a world of real magic?

Maybe. Maths itself is kinda magical if you know what i mean. There are some abstract analysis in maths that makes you wonder the people who invented it,if they were normal at the time, Trust me, i am a mathematician. I strongly believe there are some mathematical explanations for magic and also there are some magical explanation for maths.so they go hand in hand,and thus both would be reliable in both worlds.

Isn't there logical explantations for math? Isn't math consistent? Isn't magic where you can skip the process and get the results.

I think math and magic can co-exist. Same way as math and science are co-existing right now. Ofcourse you need to measure up how much power you gonna use for your magic, how many grams of magic powder to put here and there.. Well, all those stuffs.

I guess it would be less reliable than before if your real magic can do the calculations itself.

I'm not a mathematician but I think math would still be reliable. I mean, anything can be explained through mathematics, eventually. I guess my kind of thinking was greatly influenced by having 3 math professors in my family.
