I'm not a physicist. It was just to illustrate my point.
INTPs have what I would describe as massive multidimensional jigsaw puzzles in our heads. We are continually absorbing new knowledge and trying to fit that new knowledge into the puzzle. The fitting process is kind of random trial and error. The pieces can fit many different parts of the puzzle--hence multidimensional. The pieces can also form smaller independent puzzles that don't yet seem to fit anywhere in the main puzzle. Often, later on, we will find one or more suitable places to fit the smaller puzzles or other pieces that we could not fit before.
The whole puzzle is our big intuitive picture. It is our understanding of the natural world.
Any other INTPs agree with this assessment of how we think?
