Traditional psychiatry equates visions with psychosis. These patients professed to hear God and to be able predict things. They also felt their food was poisoned, and that the FBI was on their tail. No one tried to sort through this mishmash of claims. Seeing this so many times I doubted whether it was safe or appropriate to integrate my intuitions in medicine. My practice was extremely successful. Since I was a workaholic and also loved helping people, I had twelve hour days, though very little personal life. But then I had a heart-wrenching wake-up call that changed everything. It was an intuition that a patient, on antidepressants, was going to make a suicide attempt.
Because she was doing so well—nothing supported my hunch—I dismissed it. This was intolerable for me. From then on, I knew, as a responsible physician, I had to integrate my intuitions into my work. After this episode, my journey to bring intuition into my medical practice began. Soon, I began meeting people, more angels, who showed me the way. Finding my voice as a psychiatrist and intuitive has been my path to freedom. Well, so it is. But you know there was once a Spanish king who was shown how complicated the structure of the universe is.
He thought he would have made it simpler. A man may think like this, but, as a matter of fact, the world is not simple, and we must exert ourselves somewhat to grasp what man is. To look intently at the astral body is to look directly into the spiritual world.
Do You Have Intuition?
Only in the world external to man have you around you what is astral. When you look at human beings spiritually, you look into the spiritual world in respect to their astral bodies. You perceive directly what a man has undergone in the spiritual world before he descended to earth. But, you will say, my astral body is active within me. Of course it is; that is self-understood. But imagine some being or other were here, and by means of cords mechanically connected, were to produce some effect at a considerable distance away.
It is like that with respect to time. Your astral body has remained behind, but its activities extend through the whole of your life. Thus the activity that you notice in your astral body today has its origin in a time long past, when you were in the spiritual world before descending to earth.
That time is still active — in other words, it is still there, as far as the spiritual is concerned. That was a beautiful district through which we have just passed, and who would reply: Yes, a beautiful district. But it has vanished; it is no longer there. Such a man would believe that the district through which he had passed in an express train had disappeared.
It is just as stupid to believe that the past is no longer there. As a matter of fact it is always there, working into man.
\bf JUDGMENT MISGUIDED: INTUITION AND ERROR IN PUBLIC DECISION MAKING
The 3rd of January , is still there in its spiritual constitution, just as what is spatial remains after you have travelled through it. It is there, influencing the present. The human being is really like a comet stretching its tail far back into the past. It is not possible to obtain true insight into man's being unless we acquire these new concepts. Jung thought that extraverted intuitive types were likely entrepreneurs, speculators, cultural revolutionaries, often undone by a desire to escape every situation before it becomes settled and constraining—even repeatedly leaving lovers for the sake of new romantic possibilities.
His introverted intuitive types were likely mystics, prophets, or cranks, struggling with a tension between protecting their visions from influence by others and making their ideas comprehensible and reasonably persuasive to others—a necessity for those visions to bear real fruit. In more-recent psychology, intuition can encompass the ability to know valid solutions to problems and decision making. For example, the recognition primed decision RPD model explains how people can make relatively fast decisions without having to compare options.
Gary Klein found that under time pressure, high stakes, and changing parameters, experts used their base of experience to identify similar situations and intuitively choose feasible solutions.
Thus, the RPD model is a blend of intuition and analysis. The intuition is the pattern-matching process that quickly suggests feasible courses of action. The analysis is the mental simulation, a conscious and deliberate review of the courses of action. Instinct is often misinterpreted as intuition and its reliability considered to be dependent on past knowledge and occurrences in a specific area.
For example, someone who has had more experiences with children will tend to have a better instinct about what they should do in certain situations with them. This is not to say that one with a great amount of experience is always going to have an accurate intuition. Intuitive abilities were quantitatively tested at Yale University in the s.
While studying nonverbal communication , researchers noted that some subjects were able to read nonverbal facial cues before reinforcement occurred. Their level of accuracy, however, did not differ from that of non intuitive subjects. Intuition, as a gut feeling based on experience, has been found to be useful for business leaders for making judgement about people, culture and strategy. Such examples liken intuition to " gut feelings " and when viable illustrate preconscious activity.

This a great inspiration for music lovers.
One element that seems to be missing is the connection between mathematics and music. I think the author underestimates the "symbols" and "logic" of math as well as how Einstein faired in those realms. It's one thing to suggest that mathematics classes should be a little less boring; however, it's a totally different thing to suggest that the way mathematics is taught lacks some sort of musical insight.
In fact, the pure logic and tools necessary to understand mathematics is art in and of itself. Does music help one relax? But music cannot solve problems I would argue that critical thinking skills are developed more so by the rigor if mathematical logic than by the creativity inspired by music. Being a life long musician and future career mathematician, I am still trying to grasp why so many people assume an intimate link between the two--even people who are unfamiliar with the intricacies of either.
Leave the methods of teaching math to the logicians responsible for its creation and the inspiration provided by music as a wholly separate realm of life. The great creative mathematicians of the past, like Albert Einstein, did not subscribe to this view that music is one sphere of study and mathematics another. In describing his scientific thought experiments, Einstein was clearly describing a musical experience at work similar to that described by or about Bach, Mozart and Beethoven.
The work of then composing the appropriate mathematical language was that musical principle carried forward and translated into the language of math. In other words, Einstein's mathematics was a musical language, unlike the more mechanical approaches of some conventional mathematicians.

One would have to skillfully straddle the process of a Bach fugue and of an Einstein scientific discovery, or something similar, to actually see how this works.

Main article: Set theory music Musical set theory uses some of the concepts from mathematical set theory to organize musical objects and describe their relationships. To analyze the structure of a piece of typically atonal music using musical set theory, one usually starts with a set of tones, which could form motives or chords. By applying simple operations such as transposition and inversion, one can discover deep structures in the music. Operations such as transposition and inversion are called isometries because they preserve the intervals between tones in a set.
Main article: Abstract algebra Expanding on the methods of musical set theory, some theorists have used abstract algebra to analyze music. For example, the notes in an equal temperament octave form an abelian group with 12 elements. It is possible to describe just intonation in terms of a free abelian group.
The theory allows for great generality because it emphasizes transformations between musical objects, rather than the musical objects themselves.
Theorists have also proposed musical applications of more sophisticated algebraic concepts. Mathematician Guerino Mazzola has applied topos theory to music, though the result has been controversial. The chromatic scale has a free and transitive action of the cyclic group , with the action being defined via transposition of notes.
So the chromatic scale can be thought of as a torsor for the group. Perhaps Einstein was relying on the same principles that Pythgoras knew when he talked about the geometry of the strings and music of the space between the spheres. Everything has an orderly number association in the vibration of the Universe. And Einstein was open enough to use this Divine Order of the Universe to inspire his creativity. Seems like a no-brainer to me I think most artists, musicians, mathematicians,scientists and indeed all of us are using the basic Laws of the Universe,ie.
Cause and Effect, Laws of Correspondence,etc. Einstein was just not concerned with trying to deny any idea of science vs. He instinctively knew the connectedness of all that there is in LIfe. Einstein was expressing his use of the vibration resonance that occurs when thought is in alignment with knowing. All is vibration, so it follows that knowing resonates with that which exists. Therefore by listening to the vibration resonance of thought Einstein could know before he could prove.
Engaging, playing music placed him in a relaxed state of allowing him to be receptive to the knowledge. Knowledge that was already in place but awaiting his tuning to that resonance. By letting go of the vibration of the problem, he could allow himself to hear the vibration of the solution. Music was his vehicle for moving his alignment towards the answer. Wonderful indeed : the same laws of the universe that create musuc and with every string stroke a new possibility for a new melody.
Also define us with every thought a new possibility :. I recently read a story about researchers discovering that Alzheimers appears to have a side effect of enhancing the musical skills of musicians as the fog takes hold, and takes away pieces of our lives inch by inch. They found that as the disease progressed, musical skills increased at a significant and measureable rate. I myself have been suffering something I've been in denial of till recently from a shifting and at times frustrating veil of fog that takes away portions of specific memory from time to time, which has been occurring with greater frequency since the mid or late 90's.
I believe it was caused by excessive use of those sea sickness dermal patches you put behind the ear, which had scopolamine in them. I remember waking up one morning on the cruise ship in a state of near total vacuum.

Couldn't remember who I was, where I was, why I was there, what I had done the night before, could barely hold coherent train of thought. I worked my way back from it quite quickly by going through my belongings. In fact it's never been that bad a total wipeout ever since that first experience. But when I saw that article about music skill, I dusted off my sitar guitar, tuned it, and started playing, and I was shocked, lol I could play like never before.
