What we call 'intelligence'

is just the appetite for hunger.

Forgive me my senior moment, but I am hungry for a little explanation.....

This shows how intelligent you are (or are not).

Or are all my moments senior ?

I just love the way you put words in such a interesting combinations. Is it useful to try to find your meaning or should I be happy or shortchanged with mine ?

You are not alone in liking the way I collide concepts.

This apophthegm cannot really be expressed any other way. But perhaps we should think of intelligence not as an ability, but as a black hole. The hole might be curiosity, or it might simply be a kind of Attention Deficit Disorder – an inability to be like bonobos and other animals – an inability to feel ‘fulfilled’ or ‘happy’...
an infernal capacity for boredom...

I think the world may be very different from how we are told it is...
Perhaps it is Toxoplasma gondii which tells us how the world is and how our lives should be...not any Holy Scripture or vast library of scientific and philosophical publications...
