"The Magical Approach" as channeled by Jane Roberts and articulated by Seth:
"I want it understood that we are indeed dealing with two entirely different approaches to reality and to solving problems--methods we will here call the rational method and the magical one. The rational approach works quite well in certain situations, such as mass production of goods, or in certain kinds of scientific measurements--but all in all the rational method, as it is understood and used, does not work as an overall approach to life, or in solving problems that involve subjective rather than objective measurements or calculations. Those methods work least of all for any art. It is a trite statement, perhaps, but the ruler's measurements have absolutely nothing to do with the measurements made by the heart, and they can never be used to express the incalculable measurements that are made automatically by the smallest cell. The magical approach takes it for granted, in the simplest terms, that the life of any individual will fulfill itself, will develop and mature, that the environment and the individual are uniquely suited and work together."
