IntuitionIntuition is probably the second highest level of knowledge humans can gain with the highest being, spiritual truth. With Intuition, we know answers, but we just cannot reason out and justify them.  So much closer is intuition to the real knowledge of life and its meaning.

When i was very young, my father once told me a story. A story of a rich man who wanted to give away all the money he had. The more he gave away to the poor, the more he got.

CO2We have forced ourselves into a situation where we need to act on climate change. Earth by itself has an amazingly wonderful capability to maintain diversity and at the same time balance it precisely.
