The more agency the have the less intuition to rely on to choose, the more you rely on intuition to falsify. I think that’s the net of it. “What does my intuition say? Ok. how can that be false? What’s the evidence that falsifies my intuition? And repeat that endlessly.” I mean, I know that’s how I think. Free association, falsification, loop until I have a first principle. Normal human reaction is just to seek a response from intuition. You have to train the elephant.
