Insight is a stat in Bloodborne. It governs the amount of inhuman knowledge you have acquired by exploring the game and defeating enemies. It is required to use the Beckoning Bell to summon other players into your game world. Please see Moon Phases to understand the "timezone" cycles, they are not related to Insight.
