All communicational systemic contexts have the ability to synchronize in a systemic point outside each organism that comprises the system, a point of intersubjective coincidence.

When one speaks of intersubjectivity one is referring to the crossing over of various synchronized subjectivities in an external systemic point of coincidence, of agreement. This systemic point constitutes the whole of the systemic communicational synthesis (it is a fractal point), and the organisms (as complex adaptive systems) are able to read, in this point, what they need to projectively and adaptively anticipate the right response.

One may see this happening, for instance, in chases between predators and preys, in the improvisation of a jazz band, in the financial markets (the bubbles and the crashes being side-effects of an underlying adaptive response to synchrony).

When one speaks of intuition, one inevitably opens the interpretation of the results to an identification of an ability that each organism has of adaptively and projectively capture information and respond to it.

Intuition comes from the Latin in+tueri, tueri which means “to see” and in which means “in”, “within”. Intuition is the action of seeing directly within the things, in this case seeing directly, within the context, the anticipatory responses that each complex adaptive system may give to a situation. Systems and contexts being synchronized in this fit adaptation.

Any complex adaptive system has basic mechanisms of anticipation. Each system can anticipate the response of the other because the context functions as an anticipatory systemic transcendental to which the individuals are linked through an intersubjective synchronized rhythmic network, it takes place here the emergence of a reflexive and projective whole that anticipates, for each individual, the fit synchronized responses.
