Observations on Intuition

Intuition connects you to the inductive area or capacity of the mind. They are working on artificial induction/intuition or abduction, but computers can't do induction yet, so we still have that advantage over the computer. You might think of induction as seeing a pattern in apparent chaos. However it works intuition is so important, especially in the information age and the explosion of knowledge. Induction is the second of the four steps in the scientific method and therefore thinking, so you can see how important it is. If we get step two wrong, all our thinking is subject to error. That might explain why the world is so mixed up, don't you think? If you reread those quotes and substitute induction and imagination, that will give you more insights.

Assume that the main language of 95% of the brain is image logic and when you ask yourself a question, that is where the answer comes from and it reaches it's conclusions automatically by trial and error or vision logic. Well so what?

The things is that we ask ourselves questions every day and use it most of the time, but sometimes we get ideas that doesn't seem right. These are the very ideas that are most hopeful, new creative thoughts. We reject them, because they are different from our usual thinking, they are new ideas. Einstein said that, "If an idea doesn't seem wrong at first, there is no hope for it." In other words, those ideas we ignore are usually our best ideas. We only have to look more into them and ask ourselves why the mind presented that conclusion or conclusions.

I guess that's clear enough. You only have to try it, even if it doesn't seem to be working at first.  It may not, because this is may not be the best way to connect with your intuition, only the easier.

Another way is to learn to identify your intuitions. They are mostly less forceful than our habitual thinking, even getting called 'the still small voice' or gut feelings. You have to play with it a while, but do identify it and test it to see how often it is true. The concept is simple, the power is great, perhaps a 25% increase in mental powers, by my best estimates and graphs I have seen.

The other thing you can do is to get at the ideas behind an emotion. Say you get a negative feeling. Ask yourself, what is the idea or ideas behind that feeling. The feeling identifies an issue with which you may need to deal. Examine the idea or ideas behind the emotion. You most likely have some ideas that are not true, only partly true or exaggerated. Vision logic cannot handle ideas in words so well, so sometimes it is sending it to your conscious mind in an emotion to deal with an issue you might need to look at. Part of the mind deals with thoughts in words and the other part deals with thoughts in images and feelings to name a couple of ways. I hope that is clear, but you must read up on and develop your intuition for it to work best, just like you have to actually get on the bicycle and learn to ride it despite all the explanations. Explanation won't teach you the skills needed any more than reading about riding a bike is any substitute for experience nor can mere words replace actually seeing colors. Thoughts about colors are a poor substitute for actually seeing them. Of course then you still have to check intuitions to make them more accurate when put into words as you are sort of translating them into words.
