Eye sees only what mind is prepared to comprehend

The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend - Henri Bergson

............Bergson convinced many thinkers that immediate experience and intuition are more significant than rationalism and science for understanding reality..........

...........The influence of Bergson had led William James "to renounce the intellectualist method and the current notion that logic is an adequate measure of what can or cannot be". It had induced him, he continued, "to give up logic, squarely and irrevocably" as a method, for he found that "reality, life, experience, concreteness, immediacy, use what word you will, exceeds our logic, overflows, and surrounds it"...
