Intuition is close to direct knowledge and that’s preverbal but then again ,when I’m playing the piano improvising I hit a point where I’m playing much faster than my conscious words-making can go. So it’s this ethereal, otherworldly feeling. Like – well, a “muse” (music) has taken over my body. But I know enough to know that it’s a lag issue with the grammatical systems: grammar/word choosing is complex and kind of slow compared to other forms of more direct knowing – takes about 400ms which if you’ve done gaming is a lot of lag. So, intuition is in that flow timing and it feels like it “coming from nowhere” but I see that as a side-effect of timing. ’cause like, when I’m playing I’m perfectly in control of playing even though it feels as if my fingers have a mind of their own. But I can ‘will’ without having to put the words to something and change what I’m playing before I can put words to it in my mind.
