Intuition is Reality

The Buddha

Or, intuition is the best access to reality.

This is very counterintuitive to us in our empirical age. Empiricism, the theory of knowledge that undergirds our scientific method and thus the amazing technology of our age, tells us that valid knowledge comes to us via our five senses, suitably enhanced where possible with devices that improve those senses without changing the information too much.
