Fullmetal Alchemist may not have been the first series to explore the idea of alchemy. Real-world scholars from a different century have wondered if powers such as alchemy did exist. Unfortunately, nothing really bore fruit from their studies. In Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, alchemy is based on equivalent exchange. That means for you to create something, you have to give something in return. You can't just create something out of nothing (unless you have a philosopher's stone). The ancient art of manipulating and altering matter into a different form requires intense research and study to perfect. Plus, alchemists need to learn the limits of their alchemy if they want their transmutations to work. Alchemy requires dedication and precision above all else. Once you got that down, you can do just about anything.
