Intuition and the Creation of a Better World

Lovelock, James

It is not commonly known, and it is rarely taught in schools that science like art and music is a very intuitive thing. If you ask scientists how they made a discovery, they will tell you it came to me in a flash. And it did. Then they spend at least two years trying to explain it first to themselves and then perhaps ten to forty years trying to explain it to their colleagues. But it comes to you as a flash of intuition and that is the way it happens. Don't be afraid of that. Don't think there is anything wrong about it. When it is written up in the textbooks, it would seem that it was all logical, but that is not how it really happens.
