intuition

Knowledge apparently acquired without either observation or reasoning. The idea, although romantically attractive, wilts in the presence of modern psychological and physiological ideas. Few experts now believe that anything can come out of the brain that has not previously gone in, in however fragmentary a form. Intuition is probably the result of the synthesis of information from partly-conscious observations.
