Intuition and intellect

This book is largely about connections between disparate existing ideas. It does not follow a logical deductive path. It starts in many places and leads many places to paint a picture of reality that is consistent with what we know, internally coherent and extraordinary in its implications. The two fundamental assumptions of this book (consciousness is all that exists and it is finite) are a crossroads where these paths meet and diverge. There are many reasons for adopting these assumptions and many implications of them. The journey across this terrain is more intuitive than intellectual but it is an intuition firmly rooted in intellect.

Western academia knows how to develop and foster intellect but not intuition. Those in the creative arts are more aware of what intuition is and how it can be developed. This is ironic since many of the greatest scientists such as the physicists Einstein, Bohr and Feynman were more intuitive geniuses than intellectual ones.

Intuition is a pattern recognition process. It senses when many pieces fit together to form a coherent whole not unlike facial recognition in which many features combine to form the face of someone familiar. Intuition was crucial in creating this book and is crucial in comprehending it. Intuitive talent is becoming increasingly important. Intuition has always led the way in creating the new idea or seeing the new possibility that intellect could develop. As we have mastered the territory that is well defined enough for intellect to deal with more of the major issues we confront fall outside of that domain. Intuition is the subject of Chapter 11.
