i usually use the word feel to represent emotion.

sometimes some people allow their emotions, like anger, admiration, longing, fear to warp accentuate particular aspects of what they percieve, kind of like a justification to "think" what they "wish". intuition is not "feeling" to me, its close in characteristics to what seems to be biblically referred to as the "angels bringing lord's word" to someone. feelin is just those details of the world that tend to be highlighted by senses based on personally derived necessity, what i believe is the devil of us, or security. its not that what you see or hear or smell or touch is a lie, its just that its only a tiny part of the whole truth of the matter, theres so so soooo much more to reality then what one might be immediately aware of. the less emphasis one may put on a particular idea and allow the remainder of reality have a "say" in what one percieves, then more truth is percieved. that affords conviction and peace with any decision, true belief. but as one can never know "all" one must believe as a human, with as much as one "knows". to me, the foundation to sanity/peace of mind is belief. youre a believer from what i can tell, how could you formulate a hypothesis without faith and conviction that the information you have is "true"?

when we understand why, we find peace
