A funny thing happened to me recently....(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I solved a complicated math problem (for me anyway), and it was almost as if I had no idea of what I was doing. I just started writing.... and it kind of came out, unconsciously.....

I think I know why Poincare said that intuition creates while logic verifies...

Can anyone elaborate on intuition in mathematics?
