Human beings have developed consciousness and therefore they can think and perceive. A human being uses his mind to think and enter into the deep recesses of the mind to perceive. Truth has been sought through reflection, meditation and perception. Its development has been in the context of society. Man began living in society and then he searched for truth with a sense of urgency. He wondered, what are mountains? What are rivers? What is the material that is visible to the eye? Is that all there is to matter or is there more? Are they created or are they self born? Who creates them? If there is someone who does, then do we know that being or do we not? Such questions arose in the minds of people and they began to spend time and effort to find the answers. This chain of events led to the development of perception and thoughts. Perception and thoughts are based on philosophy. Philosophy was not created, it happened. Whether another accepts what I perceive is something which I cannot control. It depends on that other person. What I perceive with my intuitive perception, I try to articulate with logic. If the other person accepts the logical account of my experience then our thoughts become one. Logic serves to bring people together. Intuitive perception is personal while logic is the binding principle. Logic is the one that puts together similarities in thoughts. This way intuitive perception and logic together form the fundamentals of philosophy. The empire of philosophy stands on these two pillars.
