Bergson and Intuition

‘No image can replace the intuition of duration, but many different orders of things, may — by the convergence of their action — direct the consciousness to that precise point where a certain intuition is to be seized. By choosing images as dissimilar as possible, we shall prevent any one of them from usurping the place of the intuition it is intending to invoke.’  

(Bergson, from Intro. to Metaphysics as quoted in an online TateModern forum of liquid architecture in 2006.
