Your Eyes Can Deceive You
This is why I wanted to bring up some Jedi teachings. If reliance and reliability of gut feelings is an indicator of wisdom, then I must have been growing more and more unwise since I got here, not so much in spite of what I learned here, but because of it. To me, casting reason aside in favour of the gut is not a sign of wisdom but a sign of foolishness. If I do not reason I cannot be reasoned with. If I cannot be reasoned with, I cannot be taught. If I cannot be taught, I can only change, never grow. And if I cannot grow, why carry on living at all anymore?

I said the opposite, the wiser you become the more confident you can be of your GFII.

I doubt that but it is a GIIF feeling.
Peace, kindness, compassion, tolerance, truth, knowledge, strength of mind, body and spirit are not always companions of mine but are always pursued.
All that to say that I do not see them as separate things - if one makes logic a habit of thought, then the gut feelings would not be casting reason aside but rather a reflection/product of it.
