WHAT IS SMART? THE CHEMISTRY BEHIND WHAT MAKES YOU HAVE INTELLECT

“I think may not be I am.”


human brain

The powers of the human mind gives us the ability to create all sorts of things in this world. We are the only creations on the planet that have the consciousness outside of nature to choose to yes do or to no not to do. And that option has spurred out the very civilization that we have today. But through the building of our civilization, we have always had the thinkers; the great minds that are the architects of our great lands. What separates these people from the rest of society? Why do they think the way they do to create what they do?

not special, yet special

We think just because we have a thought it means something as people. And that makes us think and feel like we’re special. But we are not special, yet still special. And that sounds odd. How can one be special and not special simultaneously? Simple, every person has something in life that their minds are able to wrap around. Whether we realize it or not we do. Problems is, most people will never find their thing that makes them great. Because I don’t think we have this world of few minds, the rest of people just walk around aimlessly needing to be led. It’s just that the great minds not only found their thing, they are able to get out of their own way to make themselves great. That’s when you recognize you’re special, yet not special.

unique design or work

Now, in the prior passage I said everyone has something. But is it all about the having something, or is there a bit of work to get one place and you find that thing you do. Because to say we’re uniquely designed to be smart, so are all creatures. But in order to grow from where you’re at, there need to be a degree of work involved. But, then again, can you be just a gifted person? And that is true as well. But that percent of smart people is even smaller than the ones that find there thing that makes them, them. Truth is, there must be a combination of both to truly be great. Even the high level intellects worked, because if you don’t exercise that muscle, you lag behind.

CONVENIENT STUPIDITY

“Why are we so F**K’N stupid!” “Why people, why!”

People in today’s society have this problem that I call Lazy Stupidity and Delayed Consciousness. I take issue with people like this because they have popped up in record numbers in the recent years. Why am I so upset about them? It’s because we have allowed this stupidity to win. And what I mean by winning I mean, we have allowed the lowest common denominator the access of being right. But at the same time, we also love not being in the know. In the past people would work hard to seek out information. But since today we are so inundated with information, it’s almost as if getting facts is a waste of time. Or better yet, maybe lies sound better.

Let’s start off by discussing the first issue. And that is why do we allow these ill informed, undesirables the ability to have a voice in society. And I don’t mean just any voice. I mean why are they allowed to win. It’s because we have this silent majority in the country. And that silent majority just nods their head and agrees. But that loud minority is so loud that at times, things appear to be a problem when it’s really not a problem all. You know who they are, the trolls who go on Instagram and Facebook. They leave long detailed hate messages that when you break each sentence apart you can see their own mental anguish. The good ones say stuff like, “Nice work,” “Good luck,” and “Love you.” “The people with something negative to say leave messages that could rival this blog post.

Why do we let them win? Why even pay attention to the comments? There are probably so many others that are nice, but we have to read the long passages. These long passage writers also have something else that makes them undesirable; they love not being in the know. Everyone like using words like, “#WOKE,” or “#CONSCIOUS.” But with the state of context being ruined, people think they’re woke, but really it’s nothing but a bunch of sleep walkers. For example, the heading of a story says, “CELEB GETS BREAST IMPLANTS, WAY TOO BIG!” What I generally do is go, click the link and read the story. Too often, people look at the photo, and the article heading, then comment without gaining any knowledge on what the topic is about.

This lack of getting facts I read once before in a Yahoo.com comment section about NFL players showing support for troops. A few dyed their cleats in the USA flag. This was done right after athletes knelt during the national anthem. Yet people in the comment box ripped them. But they only read the part where the previous week, guys protested. You would think once the right information was given to them they changed their stance. No, they had to stick by their points. Yet another example of how you have to deal with the ill informed. This exist in other facets of life as well, politics being a major topic. We read news articles, not even knowing if it’s credible, we’ll feed right into it because the lie sounds so much better than the truth.

In the end, society love not knowing and using that unknown to express how they feel about a particular topic. Notice I said feel. An ill informed individual who is fueled through emotions will never have a rational point in a conversation. They only see their reasoning and that’s it. This is why I can’t understand why we’re letting them win. But you what I’ve come to the conclusion of in regards to these people. Allow them to rant and hate on a keyboard. Because while they rant you can gain real insight that will enrich your own life. Then you can eventually go off and create the news they continue to converse over.
