A more recent form of magickal craft has entered the scene and is becoming ever more prevalent. This craft is known by a variety of names but is most commonly known as cyber/techno-magick/mancy. For this article, it will simply be referred to as techno-magick. Different claims as to the origin of this craft have been made, the most common being witchcraft and chaos magick, however, techno-magick is practised by practitioners of many different schools and therefore is not limited to any particular school of magick. Techno magick, as the name suggests is the use of technology in a magickal craft. Since the craft is relatively new there is no set system, but is free and evolving at a rapid rate. In this article, some aspects and uses of cyber magick will be discussed in terms of how the magickal community has been using it. This must not be confused with the “Information Model of Cyber Magick” as described by various practitioners including Frater U.D. in ‘High Magick’, where the universal force of magickal energy is described as data or information which can be programmed.

We have ritualised our lives not simply on a spiritual level, but in all facets of it. We conduct rituals in the name of our deities, self-improvement, health, cycles of time, major events, new life, inevitable death and countless more. It provides humanity with an expression.

The models of Magik outline various ways in which magikal energy is gained and utilised. There is a variety of models or paradigms stretching back from antiquity and continuing development into modern day.
Three primary models/paradigms of Magik are used to define specific ways in which magikal craft is achieved. The main question that each model attempts to answer is ‘Where does the power of the spell come from?’
These are the Consciousness or Psychological model, the Energy Model and the Spirit Model. Each paradigm is either used in its pure form, neglecting the value of the others, while most practitioners of magikal arts utilise all three models.
A common theme in the vast collection of mystical scripture is that of elevating the consciousness of the individual alongside the development of psychic arts. Many of the mystics and schools of thought even provide a clear warning on the subject, stating that the mind, body, and soul must be steady and worthy in order to receive the true gifts of the psychic.
