Intelligence is something that must compensate the lack of reflexes and a poor adaptation to the live world. We’re talking here about the humankind. If you look back in history, we’ve had many geniuses. We still have geniuses today. They are big thinkers and they can move the world with a single finger. They fascinate us, and we fascinate others, because we are not equal. But we are the most interesting “thing” on this planet and maybe the smaller and insignificant in the same time, in this universe that pushes us to think. Think, think, think. The more we learn, the less we know.
