INtuition & Tuition

the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning.

intuition (n.) Look up intuition at Dictionary.com
mid-15c., from Late Latin intuitionem (nominative intuitio) "a looking at, consideration," noun of action from past participle stem of Latin intueri "look at, consider," from in- "at, on" (see in- (2)) + tueri "to look at, watch over" (see tuition).
intuit (v.) Look up intuit at Dictionary.com
1776, "to tutor," from Latin intuit-, past participle stem of intueri (see intuition). Meaning "to perceive directly without reasoning" is from 1840, in this sense perhaps a back-formation from intuition. Related: Intuited; intuiting.
intuitive (adj.) Look up intuitive at Dictionary.com
1640s, from Middle French intuitif or directly from Medieval Latin intuitivus, from intuit-, past participle stem of intueri "look at, consider" (see intuition). Related: Intuitively; intuitiveness.

teaching or instruction, especially of individual pupils or small groups.

tuition (n.) Look up tuition at Dictionary.com
mid-15c., "protection, care, custody," from Anglo-French tuycioun (late 13c.), from Old French tuicion "guardianship," from Latin tuitionem (nominative tuitio) "a looking after, defense, guardianship," from tuitus, past participle of tueri "to look after" (see tutor). Meaning "action or business of teaching pupils" is recorded from 1580s. The meaning "money paid for instruction" (1828) is probably short for tuition fees, in which tuition refers to the act of teaching and instruction.

Types of Existence

Personal existence, human existence, and cosmological existence? It is apt to confuse the question does God Exist? (Different types of existence is a relatively new thought to me.) I think I had always thought in terms of human existence before.

This alters to does God Exist, Exist does God to is God = Existence.


Emotion to replace Feeling (Perseus System MBTI)

Feeling is the nominalization of the verb to feel. The word was first used in the English language to describe the physical sensation of touch through either experience or perception. The word is also used to describe experiences, other than the physical sensation of touch, such as "a feeling of warmth".

In psychology, the word is usually reserved for the conscious subjective experience of emotion.

Modus vivendi

Modus vivendi is a Latin phrase signifying an agreement between those whose opinions differ, such that they agree to disagree.
Modus means mode, way. Vivendi means of living. Together, way of living, implies an accommodation between disputing parties to allow life to go on. It usually describes informal and temporary arrangements in political affairs. For example, where two sides reach a modus vivendi regarding disputed territories, despite political, historical or cultural incompatibilities, an accommodation of their respective differences is established for the sake of contingency. This sense of the term has been used as a keystone in the political philosophy of John Gray.


Playing Cards

The four suits now used in most of the world — spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs — originated in France in about 1480. The trèfle (club) was probably derived from the acorn and the pique (spade) from the leaf of the German suits. The names "pique" and "spade", however, may have derived from the sword of the Italian suits.[20] In England, the French suits were eventually used, although the earliest decks had the Italian suits.[citation needed]
Also in the 15th century, Europeans changed the court cards to represent European royalty and attendants, originally "king", "chevalier" (knight), and "knave". The original meaning of knave was male child (cf German Knabe), so in this context the character could represent the "prince", son to the King and Queen; the meaning servant developed later.[21][22] In a German pack from the 1440s, Queens replace Kings in two of the suits as the highest card. Decks of 56 cards containing in each suit a King, Queen, Knight, and Valet (from the French tarot court) were common.

Quarter Days (England)

The English quarter days (also observed in Wales and the Channel Islands) are:
Lady Day (25 March)
Midsummer Day (24 June)
Michaelmas (29 September)
Christmas (25 December)

Lady Day was also the first day of the year in British dominions (excluding Scotland) until 1752 (when it was harmonised with the Scottish practice of 1 January being New Year's Day). The British tax year still starts on 'Old' Lady Day (6 April under the Gregorian calendar corresponded to 25 March under the Julian calendar). The dates of the Quarter Days observed in northern England until the 18th century were the same as those in Scotland.

The cross-quarter days are four holidays falling in between the quarter days: Candlemas (2 February), May Day (1 May), Lammas (1 August), and All Hallows (1 November). The Scottish term days, which fulfil a similar role as days on which rents are paid, correspond more nearly to the cross-quarter days than to the English quarter days.
