    Much unlike Hyperfocus, I can actually snap back into real-time easily and whenever I want.

    Sub-note: Looking at the various links on the page, I think its more akin to "flow" and autotelic personality.
    What I most enjoy about this is the ability to visualize the entire structure, then internally detach from it, looking at it from 'above' and being able to internally analyse the various individual parts of said structure in great depth without losing focus on the whole. It's a wonderful process.

    Yeah it's basically what you just described except worldly immersing. That description just cleared it up more in my mind, thanks.

    Presenting something others haven't thought of yet, which causes them to think "My what a clever fellah".

    Not referring to myself in the slightest, I don't consider myself particularly intelligent.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.

    Retaining memories/knowledge/skills, how fast and easily one gains memories/knowledge/skills, and the ability to apply memories/knowledge/skills, or how easily certain skills "come" to someone (these things can be anything), whether it be a skill, thought, music, art, intrapersonal awareness, or nearly anything. Basically, a natural sense of clarity in something.

    And with that, everyone has something they're good at, so everyone is very intelligent in their own way. Society just has a very narrow definition of intelligence.

    Depends, IMO it's indefinable.
