"Magic; It's Ritual, Power and Purpose" by W. E. Butler

"Magic; It's Ritual, Power and Purpose" by W. E. Butler. Thoth Publications. 1952, 2001 edition.

p19
"It is known that the Unconscious, whether personal or collective works by means of pictures or images, speech being a comparatively recent development. [...]

Magic [...] speaks to the subconscious mind of man through the archaic images of its symbols and rituals, and thereby produces those "changes in subconscious" which the magician seeks. So also it is recorded of the Lord Jesus that "without a parable spake He not unto them" (Mark 4:34)."
