A fascinating topic!
And I guess you'll be getting well thought-out replies from folks who have spent decades thinking about it all. My two pennyworth: the cards themselves can't "know" anything. What "knows" is a part of ourselves. Looking at the cards - or looking at a sand-tray, or embers in the camp-fire or a dead goose's entrails or whatever you choose, is simply a way of switching off the conscious mind (that knows next to nothing) in favour of our inner knowledge of what is going on and what would be the best thing to do.

Oracle images just offer a range of usually dream-like structures to give form to that knowledge.
