Annihilation of intuition

I don't think I've posted it on this blog (edition), so I'll wax lyrical now. Most people enjoy intuitions - they find that their emotional, intellectual, and other parts of life, are enriched by intuited insights. All that's well and good, but intuition just happens to be a pet peeve of mine.

I wish for us to straighten out our models of intelligence and humanity, and convey them effortlessly to machines. Everywhere I go, I seek out intuition, and what is known only by intuition, and I seek to kill it through longstudy.

Longstudy of course, involves intuition, but I suppose that is what is classically referred to as climbing the ladder, then throwing it away.
