Quote from: billy rubin on September 16, 2023, 02:42:17 PMif intelligence results in humanity living stunted lives or destroying itself, are we actually intelligent at all?

Ye of course, maybe not quite intelligent enough, or a bit too much.

intelligence  ≠  wisdom
"Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration — courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and above all, love of the truth."
— H. L. Mencken


As a Dungeons and Dragons player, I can confirm.

Seriously though, one is often handicapped without the other. If intelligence is, simply put, the ability to identify and/or create solutions to problems efficiently, then wisdom is the ability to make the most of intelligence, for instance considering the possible outcomes if one's solutions were to be applied, looking at the situation "through the eyes of another..." Such like. If you can't solve a problem, that's bad. If your solution is "kill all humans," that's probably worse.

wrath and dark clouds gather force.
Luxembourg trembles.
