Most people are familiar with the concept of “being in the zone” in sports or when doing something complicated know about intuition. It is a human ability to transcend the steps of linear logic and the analytical ego to become one with your higher intelligence. In this state you are guided to do things in a way that you would never have considered in the analytical state. This is the state of mind that Einstein is ultimately referring to as intuition. It’s where all the big breakthroughs come from.
