Episode Summary

New Explorations into Intuition
If we believe that we can foretell an accident this would challenge the view that science has held since the times of the Greek philosophers. They proclaimed we can only know the world by direct observation of our senses, and based on these observations, make rules about the patterns of nature in terms of mathematics and geometry... the clockwork universe. Newton and Einstein refined these rules, but Einstein continued to believe that what we call intuition is just the projection of subconscious memories onto an unknowable future. But there are capabilities of the human mind that can't be described in terms of mathematics.moreless
