"A tiny sparkling fragment of reality"

Rational thinking is not necessarily our greatest property, and although we prize it, it [can] be a handicap. We have to recognize that in addition to conscious rational thinking our minds are capable of other, more powerful mental processes that lead us by intuition to grasp a tiny sparkling fragment of reality.
