There they are gathered together, blinking up to it with such vision as they have, scanning it from afar, hovering round it this way and that, each cunningly endeavoring, by all arts, to catch some reflex of it in the little mirror of himself.
— reflex quotation by Thomas Carlyle

When I write I simply follow my heart.
And my flights of fantasy. It is not done with a conscious effort. I'm continually inspired and write reflexively.
It's like a prehistoric reflex, you know, going out and getting the meat and bringing it back to the cave. You feel you're supposed to make it better, but more than likely she's asking you to tell her how you feel.
Let me say at the outset that I do not reflexively oppose international trade.
Arthur Young's Reflexive Universe - fascinating but too schematic to fit into my scheme. The most I could hope for was a sense of the vocabulary and some possible images.
