It occurs to me that my thought process is essentially analog; my thoughts flow in forms warm and cold, strong and weak, loud and quiet. I think in terms of fields, vaguely topographical, upon which I am mostly, but not completely, blind. The solution I’m looking for is always in the exact center of this topography, but I only know what the center looks like when I finally arrive there. Is this intuition?
Fun fact: because we rarely have a complete set of information about anything around us, but our brains still try to form conclusions on what’s available, much of what we think about the world contains a cognitive bias. Curious? Jason Kottke runs through the concept and provides some great links. Be prepared to doubt everything you know.
