To think like a genius

What do you call someone who is really good at thinking or learning?  If you don’t already know what the answer is, then clearly you are not one.  Not everyone can be perfect.  In terms of general intelligence, there is no position higher than genius.  (Prodigy and savant deal with aptitudes in specific fields.)

So why is it that the ideas of geniuses are so often dismissed as crazy?  How can a person with superior mental ability be regarded as anything but that to which everyone should aspire?  If you disagree with the opinion of someone who is smarter than you, you are probably wrong.  It would behoove you to think about it until your opinion conforms to that of the more intelligent person.

Idiots like to call us nerds or geeks because we struggle with or abstain from social interaction due to our greater interest in intellectual pursuits.  It’s easy to dismiss this treatment as mere jealousy, but that’s often their reasoning for bad treatment they suffer, so while it is one cromulant explanation, let’s keep thinking.  Social interaction is essential to the propagation of the species.  From an evolutionary standpoint, a person with more interest in evolutionary biology than convincing people to have sex with them is at a great disadvantage.  The idiots have a sound basis for their criticism of their intellectual superiors.

To navigate the stormy sea of social interaction, true north is regarded as a tremendous importance being placed on allowing one’s emotions to guide one’s thinking.  This means that for most people, thinking ends when negative emotional sensations begin.  It manifests as a desire to think and do what is good and to avoid what is evil.  This desire makes people easy to manipulate, but it is also what greases the wheels of people’s social lives.

Geniuses don’t let their emotions cloud their thinking as much as non-geniuses.  We see things for what they objectively are, and we act on our thoughts rather than our feelings.  Sometimes the truth of something causes bad feelings, and when we act on something like that, we are regarded as evil or insane.  When the way a genius thinks causes negative emotions in a regular person, the regular person disregards that his or her intellectual superior is more likely to be correct.  Right and wrong are judged by most to be what feels good rather than what is logical.

Emotions can and should contribute to our thinking, but the lead must be given to logic.  Those whose actions are directed by unbiased, logical, and minimal emotional guidance should be revered, supported, and trusted.

  1. You’re evil!! Trying to make us trust someone who thinks too much. You’re too smart for your own good!!

    Does any of that make sense? No. Not if your IQ is above 80.
    And, when you actually think about it,is propagating the species really a prudent thing to do right now? I mean, the earth has more than doubled in population in little more than ten years, having previously held close to three billion for nearly half a century before that. Correct me if I’m wrong as to exact timing. I’m citing off memory. By the end of the year, it’s expected to hit seven billion now? I think it may be time to lay off the sex.

    Except gays. Gays can fuck because they won’t reproduce. Also, blowjobs are fine if you ladies want to give one to my hetero friend.

    Now, you may be asking, “When can we fuck again?” After you’re dead. Yep. Necrophilia is also fine because it doesn’t result in reproduction.
    “But when can we start reproducing?”
    You can’t. Because, when you think about it, humans are causing too much damage to the earth and ecosystem. In the interest of the sanctity of life, humans need to die.

    But, in the end, it’s your body, and I don’t want them to pass laws against what you can do with it. So, just use your brain and take my advice.
