Isn't it that intuition tells you the Sun and Moon orbit the earth. That's quite a good start. Of course, when you spot that Mars and the other planets don't do quite as expected you then need to think about what's going on. Even then it's usually the subconscious that solves the problem, and comes up with a model of what may be going on. The conscious mind just seems to be an observer, although it often needs to refine the model thrown up by the subconscious . At least that seems to my experience.
