    Any time I wish to incorporate real world science into fantasy planning, I must be able to demonstrate the science in front of the group.
    If this takes longer than six seconds, it is over a full round action, and provokes attacks of opportunity.

    Yes. I would think that's the simplest accurate answer to that question.
    Most people see a half orc and and think barbarian warrior. Me on the other hand? I think secondary trap handler and magic item tester. Also I'm not allowed to trick the next level one wizard into starting a fist fight with a house cat no matter how annoying he is.

    So, if I need to demonstrate that a lightning bolt does indeed turn water into Hydrogen and Oxygen, do I need to acquire a river and a lightning bolt in those 6 seconds? Or are the 6 seconds only after acquiring all materials my PC already has?

    Or do you mean explaining the theory? In such a case, up to how technical can I get?
