What's Wrong with the Sun?

The Sun continues to behave oddly. For the past decade, astronomers have noticed a substantial decrease in solar activity, with just half the expected number of sunspots.  The Sun’s magnetic field has also been slow to make its expected “flip” to coincide with sunspot activity.  This may be the strangest and quietest period of solar activity in the past 200 years.  

Here’s what’s going on…

Born around 1506, Ming was the world's oldest living animal. Until scientists killed it to determine Ming's age.

These amazing videos from RISD professor Dennis Hlynsky, take actual footage of starlings, vultures and pigeons and turn them into time-lapse videos so you can see the flight paths of each bird. The result is super beautiful and NOT digitally animated.

Thought-provoking article about the common modern delusion that seeing brain function and dysfunction tells us anything significant about mind function. Having psychiatrists or neuroscientists testify at criminal trials is a strange notion, as there is little they can add except for confusion.

It's funny I've always assumed intuition was a form of logic. It didn't occur to me that it might not be logical when it makes so much sense. I've always thought of it as just making sense of patterns. Wrapping a framework of understanding around a cluster of information that I see on a regular enough basis.

The way I've conceptualized intuition as an INTJ is by a geometrical analogy. If each point is a "data point" (some piece of minimal information) then there's also an intrinsic pattern in how these points must logically fit together to make sense. When we use intuition we see those patterns based on all available information our brain has stored. The subconscious mind can process these patterns better than the conscious because it is better equipped for pattern recognition. The conscious mind involuntarily attempts to make sense of the world by seeing them as discrete particles and contrasting elements, so we "listen" to our subconscious for the other side of the story. This is why it can seem mystical or outright miraculous.
My personal experience is that when I try to absorb new information I will just go into full focus "perception" mode, then after letting it synthesise (preferably sleeping on it) I will wake up and apply all kinds of things subconsciously. I think this is also where symbolism comes in, we communicate with our subconscious using symbols. Sometimes I keep track of these less-than-conscious things by attaching a feeling to it, or an image, or maybe just a color, and then somehow as long as I have a way to identify it, I can fish it back out into the conscious light. That also goes for the Ni-Fi loop, that's when you get stuck between a symbol and a feeling it evokes in you. You probe deeper into what the symbol represents, probably get more symbols back, feel as teased as ever by what you're trying to find, and eventually end up dismissing it because you can't stand things that are going nowhere.
That's my personal experience, anyway; it would be cool to see if someone else has thoughts on this.
