That gave me a good laugh. Thanks.
I think I agree with you. If the elephant represents our life force then I think our intuitive faculty is the cognitive correlate of the elephant itself, and it can drink from many wells.
And of course it isn’t just physicists who are subject to that deceit. Others will persist in finding their own fields the most fertile whether it is philosophy, linguistics, literature or something else. Hopefully in which ever field we search we don’t come to think of the truth we find as the Truth against which we infer the inferiority of every other approach regardless how little we may know of it. If we start off thinking either rationality is right or else irrationality reigns we will never see the spectrum of truth each field reveals or how the truth of another field, once understood, can refine your understanding of what you thought you knew about your own. Besides reality is imbued with “Perhaps edges” (credit to @Christy) too numerous to enumerate, and any selection of truths will always be incomplete. The sooner we acknowledge that, the closer we will come to the Truth.
Oops … but poetry.
Wholest each together be,
between the two a rainbow see.
All is seen through either eye
but depth requires two should try.
