Musings on Intuition & Logic
Intuition is like grasping at something in the dark. You can feel it a bit, but you can’t see it yet, you don’t really understand it.
Logic is required to bring in higher definition detail and clarity. Logic takes what you are holding/feeling in the dark, and brings up for you to actually look at. Then you can see if it’s actually something of value or not.
Maybe you grabbed a pile of shit in your intuition, and thought it felt like X, Y, Z, thought it felt like some truth of some kind. But then when you actually look at what is in your hand, you see that it is a pile of poop. Your limited feeling was not enough to see what it actually was.
Intuition can help to grasp things that are out of sight, and bring them in for closer view to see if its worth anything to your understanding of reality. Intuition can be accurate, or inaccurate, or down right false. It is analogous to a quantum computer in some ways, or the P vs NP problem, where you don’t have to go through sequential ordering of data, process it and arrive at a conclusion, you just arrive at in instantly. The mind also has a capacity similar to this. In the computer analogy, the computer is alleged to get the right result though, but in the mind, it’s not so perfect, we can imagine anything, it doesn’t make it “correct”.
Some people don’t use intuition much. They use symbolic association to some degree, they make connections, correspondences, etc. Some people are robots and progress very slowly as a result of limited imagination and intuition. Instead of being able to grasp more things, because they have chosen to limit their reach to mainly the material plane, they have excluded themselves from being able to reach objects in higher planes. This would be the extreme left-brain chronic user trapped in physical limitations, while the aloof “intuiter” who believes whatever they imagine is the extreme right-brain imbalanced modality trapped in conceptual delusions.
