On intuition

I've got good intution (my non-symbolic mind sees hints of things),
and I can do the mechanical symbolic manipulation if I have a starting
point.  However, making the bridge is sometimes really difficult,
because the "language" spoken by the intuition is really out there and
is _very_ tolerant to missing details.

Maybe that is what intelligence is: seeing patters without seeing the
entire mechanics?
