I just visited from your beautiful area of the country... pacific NW.
Thank goodness there are thinkers like you who see value in accessing all of human's facilities, "logical" and otherwise. While I do not
agree with your statement - - "the analytical way of thinking kills something in the experience of reality" - - as a blanket statement, I do
think that relying solely
on logical thinking does indeed limit our potential to understand reality fully
. On those days when I'm a "one-eyed son of a bitch", I usually miss some very vital information that could help answer my (scientific) question. Recall August Kekulé's
dream of the snakes joining in a circle that revealed the structure of benzene to him... and so forth.
I'm so inspired by your e.e. cummings quote, that I'm elaborating on your post in my Letters to Einstein
blog entry today. I'll try not to bash David Albert too badly... since I like him so much (and you, too, Sean).
