oh also the opposite could be genuine consistency, so yeah order/harmony/whatever other synonym wants to be used, probably all magic in general as all magic seems to follow some sort of rule set
Maybe you could choose some other word that has to do with organization. Systemic magic? Regulation magic? Idk
Considering the living beings must be somewhat chaotic by natural, the opposite extreme of 'chaos' should be just as incomprehensible to us as chaos itself, in my mind.
'Mind control/hivemind' would also be an interesting 'equal yet not pure good' contrast to chaos magic. Other minds and forces overridden by a single will, working together perfectly, in perhaps the most messed-up way.
One could argue space and time are the opposite of chaos if you are looking for something cool. Space and time are the fundamental foundations of the universe. They govern the universe as we perceive it, thereby represent absolute order and law.
Chaos is entropy, or, in terms of information, randomness. Disordered bits. The absence of order and meaning. The path of chaos is in the direction of destruction, or de-evolution. When something devolves, it becomes chaotic.
The opposite is order. But you're looking for a different way to say that. So think in the direction of cohesion, coordination, creation. The ordering of random bits into meaningful patterns, structures, and meta-structures. Evolution. Organization. Construction. Production. Life.
So maybe Vitality Magic to go with the "life" theme. Or Syntropy Magic, to go with the order theme. Or Creation Magic. Or Formation Magic.
Entropy is generally understood as movement toward disorder, chaos, randomness, or hidden information.
The opposite of entropy is syntropy.
To break it down, "syn" meaning "with" or "together" and "trope" meaning "transformation".
Syntropy can be usefully defined as the process of creating order or information from chaos or disorder.
One who engages in or is an agent of entropy is an "entrope". Therefore one who engages in creation or the generation of information is a "syntrope".
As syntropes, we are agents of order, creation, and information.
Hope that helps.
Betwixt chaos and the void are all the things that make up the universe, for what is beyond chaos itself? Chaos is an endpoint, ultimately, as is the void. Even destruction lies within these bounds. Call this the physical reality axis.
If you really want to screw with reader's heads, make it a three axis spectrum and put something like consciousness on the Y axis. Hint: true sentience is a sort of gestalt phenomena. You can play with aspects of enlightenment here, if you wish, and perhaps add bits of morality, good and evil, and even weirder stuff.
Z axis? Time, perhaps. Or perhaps not (negative time would be a weird concept).
Depending on how you define chaos in your world it can be something as simple as randomness, or as complex as endless possibility. Define more of what your chaos is and its opposite will present itself.
