Insight vs Instinct is about ...
Insight is the science ... the environmental impacts (nurture), the conscious mind, the learned, the various frameworks we create to make sense of the world, a different perspective to give our instincts meaning.
Instinct is about our intuitive nature, the sub-conscious physical and mental drives, and instinctive behaviours we all have which make our lives easier in many ways. Although, sometimes our instincts can be maladaptive, with unwanted results.
However, with maturation, we integrate the learned insights with our instinctive sub-conscious drives, habits and behaviours.
Consciousness or mindfulness is about behaving with intention, rather than allowing ourselves to operate on autopilot or without awareness.
Many of us have traveled home from work or school at some stage without memory of the journey ... because our sub-conscious mind took over while we were mentally elsewhere. Another example could be doing routine or repetitive tasks while in a trance state (much like hypnosis), like doing the dishes, mowing the lawn, or exercising.
The philosophy is about creating greater self-awareness, a better understanding of ourselves and others, as both Insight & Instinct are equally valuable, although in different ways.
