What is Insight?
Understanding something without having to dissect it.
In simple words: pure perception.
It is what helps the artists, scientists and every person "solve" their "creative" and daily problems.
The role of analysis in solving problems is limited. And we (our society, our education systems,...) have made analysis into THE thing.
But I haven't experienced this before. How do I know whether this is true or just another theory?
Think this: You were in search of a solution for hours - the problem can range from a math sum to planning an event.
You tried everything.
You grew tired and were about to give up.
And bing! There was the solution.
At that instant you didn't reason out where the solution came from - because you didn't arrive at it logically.
That was an insight.
Is Insight the alternative to Analysis?
No. We can analyse anything. But only up to a limit. Then everything seems abstract, illogical. Then we invent the fuzzy theories in the attempt to "know" everything - theories to explain the indistinct, blurred areas.
Why this blog?
We all love stories. We have problems too.
At least we constantly THINK we have one.
This space creates the necessary ambience for your insight to happen. All these stories ask for is 20 seconds from your "damn tiring", "frustrating" and "busy" day.
So, what do these stories do?
These stories provide an insight into our daily "problems".
Of course, only you can solve the "problems". Well, your mind manufactured them in the first place.
