Chaos Magic is - merely - a hermetic magical tradition that views magic as a simple manipulation of the hidden code of reality. Chaos mages integrate many of the rituals and symbols of different traditions, as they view any effective method as fair game. Followers of the tradition are known as one of the most open minded in regards to technology; often incorporating digital aids while casting spells. Especially drawn to chaos magic are young magic users and street mages who learned to use their talents by do-it-yourself methods.
The hermetic paradigm of "Unified magical theory" is often viewed as an offspring of the more street style chaos magic.
