Insight is sudden understanding or discovery arising as a consequence of a weak Connection Event, often triggered by Insight is the sudden realization of a truth, or the deeper realization of an already known truth, or the sudden solution to a previosuly intractable problem. Insight is a Connection Outcome. Insight is an outcome of a positive and aligned, but weak and transient Connection.

In chapter one of his book This is It, Alan Watts comments on the association of insight with Connection Experience.[1]

William James notes "The simplest rudiment of mystical experience would seem to be that deepened sense of the significance of a maxim or formula which occasionally sweeps over one. "I've heard that said all my life," we exclaim, "but I never realized its full meaning until now."[2]
