Magpies are very intelligent and resourceful. Because the magpies are the only non-mammalian animals that have the rare ability to recognize themselves in the mirror, they’re symbolic of self-awareness. Magpies are also symbolic of magic, illusion, and witchcraft. The typewriter ball represents the linear kind of intelligence.
