The last of the Technomage books surprised me in a wondrous way. The secret to releasing the powers of the tech is to visualize an empty spell. A tautology to be sure, to the logical mind, but the right side of my brain loves that. I grasp the concept, hold it to me as though it is a message just for me, or contains the answer to a secret. It is little more than a riddle, but still a beautiful new twist on an ancient Zen postulate, one that a spiritual technogeek like me takes up as a new truth.
