The moment of truth, the sudden emergence of a new insight, is an act of intuition. Such intuitions give the appearance of miraculous flushes, or short-circuits of reasoning.

The diver vanishes at one end of the chain and comes up at the other end, guided by invisible links.More Arthur Koestler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
