Life is one of the three Elements of Magic, along with Motion and Matter
It is the sole influence of Hocus Pocus magic, and also influences Eyemancy, Hippiemancy, and Stagemancy.
The Life element probably refers to units, specifically allowing units to interact with their axis.
Findamancy - Erf and Life (no Motion and no Matter) : allows its casters to perceive locations on Erfworld, and find objects with relation to Erf;
Predictamancy - Fate and Life (no Motion and no Matter) : allows its casters to understand a units, cities, or items Fate,
Mathamancy - Numbers and Life (no Motion and no Matter) : gives its caster the ability to directly interact with numbers.
Foolamancy uses motion to change the perceived numbers of a unit, with Life being the unit in question;
Thinkamancy changes a units Fate, through changing their beliefs and knowledge; and Lookamancy changes a units perception of Erf
