That intuition is often mistaken for insight reveals one of the defects of mysticism. There are some who even question the validity of all insight, and, indeed, this is a sensible question to raise. The whole problem needs threshing out in a paper on the subject. Meanwhile, I must remind those who were troubled by what was written in the appendix to The Hidden Teaching Beyond Yoga that insight is not concerned with mundane matters, but only with what is beyond our time-space dimensions. Quite obviously, no one has the right to apply such a term to views concerning such matters as intellectual theology or physical diet. Intuition can, however, deal with these quite effectively--when it is, itself, checked by reason.
