    Did Intuition make the 'theory of Relativity', or did Reason make it?

    "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."

      I believe, a long way indeed.  A baby knows intuitively - or genetically - not to crawl across glass with a drop beneath it.  We all seem to have an intuitive fear of snakes and spiders.  This must be a link between genetic programming and the brain/mind.  How far it goes, or can go, we are not aware.  A lot more work needs doing on intuition and instinct.  It seems mankind's abilities are well behind many animals as far as this is concerned.
