Psychologic; the spirit and the word. This is exactly how magic works. Except not just metaphors but symbology in general.

And in the end neither of them get it right. At least in your scenario, through what you think of as magic, the poet attempted balancing the hemispheres of the brain by "attempting science". Your cold objective unemotional scientist stays stuck in the left brain and fails to make any real underlying connections between anything and instead whilst understanding the mechanistic "how" of the superficial never gets to the "why" beneath the surface. And despite scientifically prooving that consciousness is constantly effecting the reality we live in, chooses to ignore that and continues to see the world as a cold, lifeless cadavar to stick a knife into.
