Magic thinking

Any attempt to understand and manipulate the human condition by recourse to supernatural powers. In particular the term is used to describe the belief that there is a causal link between one's wishes and the real world, that 'wishing can make it so'. Said to be typical of children, psychotics and pre-literate peoples. Would that I had a tenner for every 'normal' adult in our own advanced civilisation who engages in magic thinking.
