As results, sorcery can be combined with technology for better results, enable normal humans to learn sorcery without requiring full capabilities to use one's entire brain at one time and no longer requires the catalyst usage(magic rings for instance) for cast spells. This contradicts the original movie where history of sorcery less changed at all in term of practicing, requires ability to use one's entire brain at the same time and mainly requires catalyst to cast spells, with the exception of Prime Merlinean.
