What is intelligence?

Primer, Inception, and other pseudo-intellectual films inspire their audiences to solve little puzzles.

The idea is half-baked.

That’s fine. We don’t eat ideas in this household.


Micro-aggression is the result of micro-intelligence.

Autonomy of the faculties.

Intellect is a matter of cultivation. Intelligence is a matter of dumb luck.

Morality is a problem of will, not intellect.

If you need philosophy to guide your moral judgments, then I fear for the fate of your soul.
