I commit myself to show that Intellect in Design is the Progenitor of Greed as the Accumulation of Accomplishments to Create Value in the Illusion, while the Real Value as Life – Here, Equal, Born as a Child – is Disregarded as the Luck of the Draw, as the Lot is Casted to find the Greatest Philosophy while Life suffers in Unspeakable ways.
Intellect is the ancestor of greed as the accumulation of accomplishments to create value in the illusion. Most often think we’re not accomplished enough or we don’t have enough experience or we don’t have enough money to think we’re leaders or the top 1%, that is an outflow of the implied definition of intelligence. Intelligence is comparative and automatically makes winners and losers, intelligent or not intelligent.
The thing that makes this debate possible is Life, that thing that animates all things. So what is the value of this Life that enables all the possibilities to argue or agree? How does this Life fit into the definition of intelligence and what role does it play, first in the normal ‘most people know’ context, second in a definition of intelligence that would support all Life?
Without your Life, nothing matters because you do not exist. What “exists” that claims without all things I won’t matter, is an emotional line of reasoning which to me, sounds like my copy of The Money System personified into an inner voice in myself that judges good and bad and places above all else, having Money is good (all that moulds me to be a person that most others will seriously consider buying my services, regardless of how violent that is, how nonsensical those rules can be, how much suffering I see around me, my personal bubble personal microscopic reality distinctly separated into two unique parts: my living and striving under the pursuit of happiness, and the rest of the world), having Money is good and having none is bad, nullifies and sort of sums up that no matter what strengths I have, I have no money so I sincerely believe I’m worthless. So above is an absolute number one importance placed on money as the ultimate indicator of how good I’m doing or am, even more important than my Life. In the context of intelligence that most people know, the pursuit of intelligence under the pursuit of happiness is mirroring the Philosopher’s Stone game. Where in consumerism, everyone is a Philosopher with a Stone/opinion based on Exclusivity, competing for superiority and for resources/money. I see this in the young people that want to be entrepreneurs, in the people that want to achieve higher in the corporate ladder, in people that want to earn more money. Because when one wants to earn more money and do it for real, it’s either the route of somehow acquiring more intelligence, the route of being more social or networking, or the popularized route of cheating by really cheating other people or make money quick schemes passive income. Cheating is not a viable long term plan because people over time will get to know who you are, and if that is a cheater, means you’ll have to keep moving. Now it was suggested by Jordan Peterson that it’s best to be competent/one of the best at what you’re doing, and be reciprocal in your relationships.
Most would argue intelligence is more important than Life, while people are embarassed if they are not one of the best at what they do or they don’t have a regular source of income because of what they do. Feelings of inferiority come up when being a NEET or a hikikomori, the feeling that you are separated from the crowd and living off someone else’s money, you feel you have not as much dignity as the office workers.
But think about it: without you living, once you die, money doesn’t and can’t matter anymore, how well toned and muscular you are doesn’t and can’t matter, we really don’t know if other people – the other people you feel alienated from – will matter anymore but we know we die alone. It’s a personal alone journey to the other side. How good you are at doing earthly tasks doesn’t and can’t matter anymore. How well you can come up with ideas or plans or visions of earthly proportions doesn’t and can’t matter. Your previous earthly intelligence is rendered completely alien to the other world you enter at death, and intelligence doesn’t and can’t matter once you die. What is emphasized at death is not how intelligent you are, what’s emphasized is the cycle of life that includes death in its considerations, that fact that you DIE, while your body decomposes and dust to dust. How intelligent do you have to be to experience your last breath before you die?
So looking above everything I’ve described, intelligence is fucking important because it’s a precursor to having lots of money and a stable source of income even more important than Life. Life is that thing that can pay attention and is your physical human body’s flesh. And how often do we think about our physical flesh? Only when we become ill and have diseases. In the meantime, Life is treated as an absolute that we can spend as we feel like it, when we like it, how we like it. It’s like Life is the slave to intelligence and to money and money is the master, implying your intelligence is the master of your destiny that festers as well because intelligence is the progenitor of greed.
Dumb people don’t think about money so to speak. Intelligent people do and care about alot more earthly things in the end to earn what we think we deserve to be thought of well and good and right by most other people. Life is secondary to the Philosopher’s Stone game and being one of the few Philosophers that’s got a stone/idea that will bring infinite wealth to him/herself. Life is thought less of. Life is abused to be one of the best Philosophers. Life is moulded in the image and likeness to be alike to the best Philosophers, the best businessmen and entrepreneurs. Life is chastised and disciplined if it’s not resulting to me being one of the best. Life is burned off like burning off time, or burning out, or burning up your youth. Life is feared to be lost, feared to deteriorate over time. Money is number one. Intelligence second, Life last, reflected in the lives of all Life and the other half of humanity living off is it $1 a day?
When I put it that way, living has the possibility of being like a sort of hell in the trenches living. Intelligence as an idea in human minds has not helped Life. Intelligence and lack of has formed the basic reason for why suffering exists and why suffering is a normal part of Life. Smartasses designing our advertising and TV shows, their aim is to make money, just like you, no matter how or what it takes. Putting it that way intelligence has fueled the suffering, given possible reasons why it should be here, why it cannot go away, why the world cannot change. Intelligence forced many a people into a corner, and our survival instinct to protect me in spite of harming others kicks in and we’re relying on our survival instinct to accrue the personal definition of intelligence that will make us win. We rely on the possibility of having no money to motivate us to evolve our intelligence to be the better Philosopher.
What about money no longer being a factor in scarcity forcing me to ask myself, what do I really want out of my life? What about the living fact of living to motivate me, instead of fear of loss and fear of survival, fear of having no more money? What if our lives were valued above our intelligence to make money for the assured future of money?
We’ve deified money/capitalism/entrepreneurship and personal intelligence/greed/success/wealth, instead of valuing Life above all else. In redefining intelligence to support Life, to in other words support a definition of Life where suffering is annihilated for the most part and limited to the dimensions that are necessary, Life as an idea is thought of as more important. Life is the mother to its son intelligence and its grandson greed.
The real question is how do we prove Life is more important? Right now money is made to be master over life. Implement a Basic Income Guaranteed then human lives matter more than money itself. Implement an Equal Money System then human living in dignity and trust matter more than money itself.
People like me need to critically reexamine our values and realize this money game is rigged and unfair to begin with. Under the name of intelligence atrocities motivated by money flourish like war and rape, or its acceptable kind called public inappropriate touching which is a problem in Japan. 48% of women in Japan have been touched inappropriately in the subway.
People like me need to stop deifying the idea of startups, technology, stop worshipping money itself. Because that would mean completely allowing and accepting the money game as it is, which is brutal and compromising to human life. The Philosopher’s Stone game has devastated all forms of Life, especially human life in how it has moulded and shaped the way our young entrepreneurs think and decide and behave. The game has moulded and shaped our CEOs to think and decide decisions that cut millions of their own jobs, decimated the many to preserve the few. The game is shaping our laws to cater to 1% at the expense of 99%.
We need to understand money supports human beings. And the variation which human beings think about values and what is supposed to go where is extreme. The different ways people think contradicts each other, and money supports both sides. What I mean is money can be coming your way, but what it’s supporting as the mental concepts and values and ways of thinking in you personally, that needs to be reexamined purely because it’s evident it can be wrong. It can be the very thing that is allowing greed to flourish, as we observe of the masses and news. Money is supporting the best and the worst of us, the rightest and the wrongest of us. It supports Bill Gates and the yakuza. It supports war and a definition of peace that allows war to flourish in certain parts of the world.
A comparatively practical definition of intelligence would not be the means with which we get rich, but instead the intelligence to educate and remind ourselves and each other what is more important. Money or Life. Greed or Life. Intelligence or Life. Self Interest or Life. Then intelligence is a living word that is all inclusive and encourages and supports all of us, instead of intelligence being a word that again divides and separates us, makes us supermen and women instead of what we need to be, human. Made of flesh and bone, vulnerable, dependent yet independent.
I’m interested to hear what your definition of intelligence is.
