Story Logic: Narrators and POV

Stories have a certain logic. Narrators, reflecting back, tell and POV characters, in the story, experience, which is show. When POV characters tell, the author defies this logic. Who are they telling? When narrators show, they defy this logic. Outside of the story, and because experience is sensory perception (in the body) how does the narrator experience? But the simple fact is that we mix up this logic all the time because of the flexibly of our imagination, and we wouldn’t want to give up our ability to use these two different voices in our writing anyway. The issue is: does our approach work? Can it be better?
