an essay on intuition and pervasive gladiolae
By ice rivers
I've always been a believer that we use intuition to gather information rather than to process it; much in the same way that we use our senses.
I just read how Tony Gwynne, one of the best hitters in the history of baseball, described the process of hitting. He saw the ball and then he couldn't explain what happened after he saw the ball that enabled him to get a hit.
Anytime, we are unable to explain what we are doing, assuming that the vocabulary for that explanation is available, we are in the realm of intuition.
Intuition is unexplainable.
Usually we recieve information unexplainably when our intuition activates.
In Gwynne's case his information was received through his senses and processed through his intuition.
After seeing the ball, Tony can not explain what happened next, it just happened.
I think this is the case with most acts of genius. Look at this ingenius little article I'm putting together now. I'm seeing the words as I type them just as you are seeing the very same words as you read them. As I see the words something else that I can't explain is triggering me to add more words none of which are revealed to me until I actually type them like this word here "gladiola" which has no reason to be here other than it's the word that unexplainably came to my brain pan at the exact second I was in the midst of typing a word that was coming to me for no reason other than intuition unexplainable produced/processed/revealed it.
I've given up trying to explain how I write or even what my writing means. Gambar was/is a perfect example of that tendency.
Now this piece started out because I was responding to some information I received through my senses while reading about how someone else cognates when they are hitting a baseball and from that information I have somehow, as have you, garnered an image of gladiolae that I didn't want or need until intuition took over the process with the usual, unusual result.
In Gwynne's case such physical outburst of intuitional processing subsequesnt to sensual reception would lead to a result that could be categorized as, for example, a doubl,e, a single, a fly ball to center field etc.
The problem with intuitional processing in a non-structured environment is nobody knows what to call the out come so let's try this
an essay on intuition and pervasive gladiolae.
Will it be a hit?
I doubt it but hey
And like the Dave Clark Five
I'm a feeling gladiola
yes I'm gladiola
baby I'm gladiola
so glad your mine.
Now where did THAT come from.
Watch me now.
