In the study of trend science, we learn of the power and importance of intuition – a faculty of perception that is difficult to teach, but essential for discerning future trends and patterns of market behavior. A trend is a constellation of information, events and consciousness. It is a socio-cultural mirror; an aesthetic compendium of past, present and future. A trend is not something we follow, it is something we feel. Navajo philosophy tells us that everything has an inner form, quality or essence that is unseen. Physicists might call this hidden quality, energy or the interplay of atoms; religious leaders might call it spirit; the Navajo call it Beauty. Trends also carry this inner form, and are disseminated most rapidly when this hidden quality reflects the same kind of intrinsic Beauty, spirit or energy that we experience most clearly as Being.
