Magic comes directly from the spirit realms. Focal, when it split from the rest of creation, became the central point, the realm around which all other realms rest. As such, Focal is the realm most subject to rules (like gravity). Bypassing these rules requires spirits who aren’t subject to them. This overcoming of the natural laws is what mortals call magic. Thus, all magic is utilizing spirits in some way and this is the chief distinction between magic and marvels.
With magic, it must also be noted that the mental faculties of spirits has the same breadth of physical beings. The intelligence and moral agency of humans is quite different from that of ants. Thus, there are spirits with ant-like intelligence as well. The most powerful magic is through intelligent spirits, however.
