notion (n.)
understanding, awareness, intellect
Cor V.vi.107[Coriolanus to Aufidius, ] his own notion ... shall join / To thrust the lie unto him
KL I.iv.224[Lear to all, of himself] his notion weakens
Mac III.i.82[Macbeth to Murderers] I made good to you ... all things else that might / To half a soul and to a notion crazed / Say, ‘Thus did Banquo’
