High IQ will not help us
Question from the Internet:
“Would the world be a better place if everyone had 150+ IQs?”
Our IQ and the state of the world have nothing to do with each other, if anything our “high IQ” and our prideful, foolish thinking that we can solve everything with our intellect is to our detriment. (Today we can clearly observe how our “solutions” turn every problem much worse as we do not even understand who we are what system we exist in)
We are primarily emotional creatures living in a Natural reality that is comprised of forces — we could also call “emotions, thoughts”, which forces maintain a fragile balance and homeostasis life depends on.
The whole Natural system lives by the selfless, mutually complementing, mutually responsible interconnection, cooperation of its comprising parts. We can clearly observe and understand this through our own biological bodies how it works.
So why do we think that when it comes to us — individual human beings who are also individual “cells” of a single, fully integrated human “superorganisms” — we can intellectually decide to act against the collective, against Nature, succeeding, surviving at the expense of others and Nature?!
Our survival, the state of the world does not depend on the intellect, but it depends on our emotional maturity, development, clearly, tangibly feeling the need to build the existentially crucial mutual integration between us so we can also integrate back to Nature before it is too late!
And as we can see from many ideologies, philosophies, religions who seemingly say, declare the same but could never actually implement such notions, we need to tangibly feel our interdependence and the threat of self-destruction — through a unique “emotional education” — without integrating with each other and Nature.
