The natural person

“The natural person is understood perhaps more clearly by considering any person as a child.  In a fashion, the child discovers its own intellect, as it discovers its own feelings. Feelings come “first”.  The child’s feelings give rise to curiosity, to thoughts, to the operation of the intellect: “Why do I feel thus and so? Why is grass soft, and rock hard? Why does a gentle touch soothe me, while a slap hurts me?”
“The feelings and sensations give rise to the questions, to the thoughts, to the intellect.  The child in a fashion feels its own thoughts rise from a relative psychological invisibility into immediate, vital formation.  There is a process there that you have forgotten.  The child identifies with its own psychic reality first of all – then discovers its feelings, and claims those, and discovers its thoughts and intellect, and claims those.”
