In chapter 7, Fred Alan wolf talks about how the future itself influences the current and the past influences the present and ┬átogether the stream combine to create the current experience. it is interesting how he discusses that intuition is actual information from from the future and is perceived in the now. Using intuition to navigate life certainly does feel like that. Likewise. if we use emotions to navigate life, we are allowing out past to impact our present. He mentions that we often don’t experience the novel situations we are in because we goes to scripted old thoughts and feelings instead of looking for what was novel in this situation. The basic nature of our survival mechanism will prevent us from experience in information and new experiences. With awareness however comes choice.
