Note: Matter Battles first came to my attention in this 2011 post by Bryan Boyer, in which he outlined 5 basic identifying/principles: In a Matter Battle to Undo is to Redo, Matter does not Share SpaceThe Behavior of Matter is Hard to Predict Well Without Great Expense, Matter Battles are Always Low Tech and Matter Battles are Hard to Understand Until You’re In One.
