Inventing "The Age of Intuition."

The "age of intuition" is a phrase common to modern pop-culture, and associated with the new-age movements. It is often attributed to Meher Baba. However, Meher Baba never spoke of an age by that name.

Here is the statement by Baba.
"[During Avataric periods] life, as a whole, is stepped up to a higher level of consciousness, is geared to a new rate of energy. The transition from sensation to reason was one such step; the transition from reason to intuition will be another." (Discourses, VOL III)
It is from the discourse The Avatar.

The transition from sensation (which animals enjoy) to reason (which people enjoy) probably occurred about 200,000 years ago.

Ancient cave painting that would appear to indicate thinking. The earliest human artistic representations are thought to be African rock art made from red ochre around 100,000 B.C. in South Africa.
