** The Infinity Circuit of an Eldar craftworld. In addition to being a repository for the souls of their dead, Eldar can use the circuit to ask questions and seek wisdom, and even send messages to each other. It's basically a giant computer network, except you access it with PsychicPowers and it's powered by the souls of the departed instead of electricity, so this example gets bonus points for taking the "Magical" part of the trope name and making it literal.
