brain & mind – where matter meets metaphysics

Understanding

I posit that understanding is more than just information. it is more than even knowledge. Deep understanding is more than reason. Understanding implies a balance, an overview, a depth. Intellect alone is not enough. Feelings, intuition, spirit and reason are necessary for balance and stability. All of these faculties (symbolized by the four classical elements or the four tools of the magician) are necessary for understanding.
