When is intuition and speculation fruitful?? A dilemma in a scientific age . . .

I know that intuition and speculation seem anathema some places ;however, to me a reasonable dose of speculation and intuition are essential for proper living . . . IMO a life devoid of following a hunch or an impulsive whim or informed guess is essential for happiness and in some cases even survival . . .coffee4

I was used as a disinterested third party investigator and inspector throughout my career . . . the funny thing is many times what turned out to be my most accurate and useful findings were not based solely on fact but a sense of, or intuition of, the state of reality. Maybe the brain simply weighs the preponderance of physical data observed and other experiences (which are sometimes below a conscious threshold) and crunches out the best approximation of reality without even consciously understanding how it was arrived.

Re: Has intuition saved your life or prevented considerable pain and suffering. . .?
Here's an interesting article in the New York Times, entitled "In Battle, Hunches Prove to Be Valuable." The theme is how the neurosciences are beginning to take soldiers' intuitions seriously, and for very pragmatic reasons: "Everyone has hunches — about friends’ motives, about the stock market, about when to fold a hand of poker and when to hold it. But United States troops are now at the center of a large effort to understand how it is that in a life-or-death situation, some people’s brains can sense danger and act on it well before others’ do."

Re: Has intuition saved your life or prevented considerable pain and suffering. . .?
The United States Navy has started a program to investigate how members of the military can be trained to improve their “sixth sense,” or intuitive ability, during combat and other missions.
The idea for the project comes in large part from the testimony of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan who have reported an unexplained feeling of danger just before they encountered an enemy attack or ran into an improvised explosive device, Navy scientists said.
“Research in human pattern recognition and decision-making suggest that there is a ‘sixth sense’ through which humans can detect and act on unique patterns without consciously and intentionally analyzing them,” the Office of Naval Research said in an announcement late last month. The scientists managing the program — which the the naval research office is calling “revolutionary” — commonly refer to this mysterious perception as feeling one’s “Spidey sense” tingling, after the intuitive power of Spiderman.

"Two of my closest friends invited me to join them on a trip to Las Vegas. They were to pay for the hotel, food, gas, etc.  All I had to do was show up for the fun.  Only problem was, the day that they were to pick me up, I had a unrelenting feeling that I should not go. And I could not explain it.  I just knew that I should not go.

It wasn’t until the next day that I learned that my friends were in a terrible three-car accident and one of them did not make it out alive. "

"My Pop Pop accidentally left his ignition running in his car, one night when we came home from dinner. You see he has one of those keyless cars that is virtually silent, and probable due to the heavy winds and rain that night, none of us noticed that the engine was still running.
Needless to say, the carbon monoxide needed a place to go, so up it seeped into the room that I was sleeping in.  I smelled something that I thought might be gas before I went to bed, but I wasn’t completely sure. I sniffed all over the room and came to the conclusion that the radiator wasn’t working right and I somehow convinced myself that it would magically correct itself.
So I cracked the window to entertain the thought in my head that said, if it is gas, I might die in my sleep. The other two options that I came up with at the time were, to move into the middle bedroom or to wake up my Pop Pop. It turns out that had I chosen option number three and awakened my Pop Pop, he probably would have called 911, therefore saving me from what was fated to occur.
Having chosen to stay in my bed and not take action on my suspicions, I proceeded to breathe in the carbon monoxide from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. at which point, I was miraculously awakened by an inner voice which said, go to the bathroom."

Re: Has intuition saved your life or prevented considerable pain and suffering. . .?
There was a instance I cannot explain, here goes...

I had been recovering from surgery, and the doc had put me on heavy doses of sleeping meds. It was 11:00 pm and I had taken them 30 min prior.
At 11:00 I recieved a call from my mother that she had just found her husband dead at home.

Needless to say I couldn't drive, I was so groggy I had my daughter call the neighbor to see if she could take us. She agreed.
It was terribly foggy, I remember that. You couldn't see a thing in front of you. My young daughter in the backseat, friend driving I just kept nodding in the front seat.

As I nodded, eyes closed I could see clearly a herd of deer in the road. I lifted my head and blurted "DEER"

It scared my friend and she slowed, still seeing nothing but a wall of fog. I opened my eyes and that's all I saw as well.
She was startled so bad by my outburst, the car was now moving at a crawl.

Low and behold, within seconds...through the fog, we start to see the images of deer forming. Several huddled in the road.

How I knew that, or even saw that with my eyes closed still amazes me, my friend and daughter.

Re: Has intuition saved your life or prevented considerable pain and suffering. . .?
The pineal gland is reddish-gray and about the size of a grain of rice (5–8 mm) in humans, located just rostro-dorsal to the superior colliculus and behind and beneath the stria medullaris, between the laterally positioned thalamic bodies. It is part of the epithalamus.
The pineal gland is a midline structure shaped like a pine cone,[3] and is often seen in plain skull X-rays, as it is often calcified.[citation needed]

Metaphysics and philosophy

The secretory activity of the pineal gland is only partially understood. Historically, its location deep in the brain suggested to philosophers that it possessed particular importance. This combination led to its being a "mystery" gland with myth, superstition and occult theories surrounding its perceived functions.
René Descartes, who dedicated much time to the study of the pineal gland, called it the "principal seat of the soul."[28] He believed that it was the point of connection between the intellect and the body.[29] Descartes attached significance to the gland because he believed it to be the only section of the brain which existed as a single part, rather than one half of a pair. He argued that because a person can never have "more than one thought at a time," external stimuli must be united within the brain before being considered by the soul, and he considered the pineal gland to be situated in "the most suitable possible place for this purpose," located centrally in the brain and surrounded by branches of the carotid arteries.[28]
Baruch de Spinoza criticized Descartes' viewpoint for neither following from self-evident premises nor being "clearly and distinctly perceived" (Descartes having previously asserted that he could not draw conclusions of this sort), and questioned what Descartes meant by talking of "the union of the mind and the body."[30]
The notion of a "pineal-eye" is central to the philosophy of the French writer Georges Bataille, which is analyzed at length by literary scholar Denis Hollier in his study Against Architecture. In this work Hollier discusses how Bataille uses the concept of a "pineal-eye" as a reference to a blind-spot in Western rationality, and an organ of excess and delirium.[31] This conceptual device is explicit in his surrealist texts, The Jesuve and The Pineal Eye.[32]
The notion of an inner third eye (attributed mystical significance) also occurs in ancient, central and east Asian, and new age philosophies.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

The pineal gland (also called the pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, epiphysis, conarium or the "third eye") is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It produces the serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions.[1][2] Its shape resembles a tiny pine cone (hence its name), and it is located near the centre of the brain, between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two rounded thalamic bodies join.

My intuition tells me this is right;) Our brains somehow sort through the huge volume of data and make predictions based on likelyhoods and calculations that are too complex for us to visualize in a linear fashion. This need not be certain calculations that determine particular outcomes, but can simply be a weighing of possibilities and likelyhoods. A subconcious risk assessment, if you will.

I also feel that sometimes people can sense intent. It's almost like strong intent permeates the air. A soldier may see a corner of a home and sense danger because someone around the corner means them very ill will. I'm not much into this sort of thing. I prefer to deal with physical rationalities, but there may be a bit of a sixth sense at work.

 Quoting: George B


Driving one night with my oldest daughter, for no reason I just started telling her about one night her father and I had nearly hit a herd of cows on the highway. As I told the story I decided maybe I should slow down. Within a couple of minuets there amid the swirling fog was a herd of black cows.

Something call it intuition, or God's hand was with us that night.

Illogical poll.

If we go about our daily life making decisions, how do we KNOW we avoided something. I'd say yes, EVERY single person has used intuition to avoid things, they just don't know it.
