Behind the Answers - Fumito Nanahara

This quote was added by strawberryscars
When a person encounters that which they cannot understand, what do they do? Why, they think. But you know, the more you think about something, the further you get from the truth. Yes. Your thoughts get in the way of what your instincts desire. In the way of the real answer.

It's strange that this writer believes instinct is a greater path to truth than the use of thought (presumably critical thinking). Given that critical thinking and study has given human beings a better understand of reality and how to interact and create within its boundaries (as evidenced by the words you are reading on your screen), I've little evidence to show that instinct in and of itself has accomplished quite so much.
