Clarke's third law makes most think technology & magic are somehow interchangable. But magic is more like singing or solving math equations—it's a function of personality & skill. Technology, however, is great for recording things and playing them back. Record how an equation is done, and feed the variables into the calculator. Anyone can autotune their voice. Translate this into a world of Real Magic, where people cast spells at each other. Non-magic users use technology to record every step of a magician's spell, and recreate it, over and over again.
