It is through intuition we discover

Intuition or axiom is the foundation of mathematics and physics, but has been until the first axiom of biology lacking in the science of biology. Darwin philosopher Daniel Dennett is fond of saying how wonderful is Darwin's "strange inversion of reasoning", and he is very proud of the anti-intuitive nonsense that randomness/errors/noises can create complex systems of great order. I would not advise anyone to be a philosopher without being a scientist first if his philosophy depends on scientific discovery. To base one's career on second hand knowledge is being reckless. Dennett is completely fooled by Darwin who not surprisingly is extremely poor with intuition and logic as shown by his difficulty with high school mathematics. Darwinism is based on the negation of intuition or 'strange inversion of intuition', a position no other great minds hold and no true science is based.

I recently found a few great quotes on intuition as listed below:

‘intuition is the source of scientific knowledge.’


‘The only really valuable thing is intuition.’

Albert Einstein

‘I believe in intuition and inspiration; at times I feel certain I am right while not knowing the reason.’

Albert Einstein

‘The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift.’

Albert Einstein

‘The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you and you don’t know how or why.’

Albert Einstein

‘I have had my results for a long time, but I do not yet know how I am to arrive at them.’

Carl Friedrich Gauss

‘Instinct leads, logic does but follow.’

William James

‘Intuition does not denote something contrary to reason, but something outside the province of reason.’

Carl Gustav Jung

‘The disclosure of a new fact, the leap forward, the conquest over yesterday’s ignorance, is an act not of reason but ofimagination, of intuition.’

Charles Nicolle

Knowledge has three degrees—opinion, science, illumination. The means or instrument of the first is sense; of the second, dialectic; of the third, intuition.’


‘It is through science that we prove, but through intuition that we discover.’

Henri Poincaré
