Banter? I just met her...
Athelete's are always told by their coaches, "Don't think about it, just react. Clear your mind and react."
Artists are infamous for saying, "I wasn't even thinking about it. I had no concept. I just reacted to what I felt."
Intelligence is theoretically based on understanding and retaining, which develops into a personal thought process. This matures into knowledge. So why are we as human beings so obsessed with that which, to succeed and be considered "great", we should not think at all. But rather blindly react to our emotions, disregarding any thought process whatsoever? If that "greatness" is what we all desperately seek; that brilliance, then why do we think at all?
