    If something has to exist first

    before it can ask for anything, then nothing asked to exist, no soul, no entity, nothing. If we didn't ask to exist, or make or body, mind, world, and what it contains... what did we have a choice in, in the first place? How do people say we are free when it is an illusion...

    and most exciting part of our body. I appreciate those who train it. Whoever that disagrees may suffer from brain damage.

    I love intelligence in a person esp.

    during conversations. These people keep you on your toes, so to speak. I love having my brain stimulated by reading and being around others who are extremely smart and not ignorant or uneducated.

    The worst thing is when you have nothing to

    talk about, you just sit there and talk about how your day went or what the weather is like, eventually it gets boring. To be funny you need intelligence, to carry a conversation you need intelligence, so it has become one of the most important things for me.

    It is the most powerful tool in the belt.

    The great leveler. The compass of life. The steering board of our adventures. The map of passage. The key to the door. The treasure in the vault. It is our only weapon in our battle of wits. You can never have too much. An admirable quality, to acquire.

    especially the idea that you get out of life what you put in and that everything in this regard is equal and balanced for everyone.I really don't understand how anyone with any significant amount of life experience and/or knowledge of history could believe this.

    Intelligence may mean different things to

    different people.To me it means knowing what is happening around you and being able to carry on a conversation about it.it may be awareness about literature ,films ,music.etc.It also means understanding what a person feels without always being told about it.

    True intelligence should not be measured by the

    ability to memorize what you're told, whether it's true or not. Intelligence should be seen as a synonym to wisdom.
