Tales from the intuitive leap

   The intuitive leap does
   not fit well into the
   pattern of deductive,
   syllogistic thinking.
   Reformatting and close
   comparison decant a fam-
   iliar practice or tool
   from an established con-
   tainer; the stress in ..
   an intuitive leap is on
   if, not what if, instead
   of then.. The final, con-
   scious reckoning carries
   a burden .. rather than
   the clarifying finality
   of syllogistic conclusion.
