Unlike the laws of mortals, Universal Laws are far more deeply ingrained and powerful. They are created and held up by actual potent and strict power; whether it be by a being of deistic identity, or forces still largely unknown to us. It is typically more or less impossible to break any of the Universal Laws, and if they do in fact break, then consequences can be very severe, indeed.
Mostly we look at the Universal Laws as the rules that hold our realities together. They are the real evidence of the many limits our world and us in it are held in place by, and they remain essential in maintaining the many balances that equally ensure that the structure of the Worldsoul, Nym's Eye and possibly beyond don't break apart.
They are more than just guidelines; they are everything that defines us, the world, and the universe.
