1 Intuition Richard Hill Knowing the Unknown

2 In Tuition In Sight Below the threshold of emotional relevance or Non-verbally expressible perceptions or Consciously (reflectively) aware Language – visceral to verbal

3 1. Focus – attention to a single element 2. Relaxation – to allow activity and accessibility to obscure associations Mark Jung-Beeman & John Kounios Northwestern University Drexal University

4 Henri Pointcare – realised a seminal insight in Euclidian geometry while boarding a bus. Richard Feynman physicist would frequent a topless bar and wait for inspiration to strike.

5 1. Focus – attention to a single element 2. Relaxation – to allow activity and accessibility to obscure associations Pre Frontal Cortex Right Anterior Superior temporal gyrus Mark Jung-Beeman & John Kounios

6 The conductor of neural activity Activates the search for information even when distracted by other tasks Earl Miller MIT Unusually active about 1 second before awareness Of an insight Jung-Beeman & Kounios

7 Medial Pre Frontal Cortex Body regulation Attuned communication Emotional balance Response flexibility Empathy Insight Fear modulation Intuition Morality Daniel Siegel The Mindful Brain 42-44

8 Joydeep Bhattacharya (London) steady rhythms of Alpha waves - 8 seconds bursts of gamma waves (parietal cortex) – 1 second Aha!

9 knowl.edge.o.cep.tion – the process whereby the stimulus of a new piece of information or knowledge (which includes facts, opinions, experience, emotions and body awareness) triggers a range of interactions with existing elements of knowledge, creating expanded perceptions that exceed the sum of the parts. Initially felt as a flash of insight, these interactions establish new, neural integrated systems which form deeper understanding, broader awareness, stronger convictions, additional unrelated thoughts, new world views and, ultimately, a deeper and wider scope of wisdom. AHA! Knowledgeoception
