    I Am So Different.

    Hello all, I have felt different than others since I was a toddler. To try to explain this to a reg human being feels useless. I learned how to fake it early on, how to hide and also appear to fit in, but have never felt true connection to others. I have been studying ancient...

    Life Long Search

    The comic Steven Wright joked, "I have a large sea shell collection which I keep scattered on beaches all over the world. Maybe you've seen it." I think wisdom might be a lot like those shells, scattered all over the world. A little bit here, a little bit there...

    Intelligence Vs Wisdom

    "Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to use it in a fruit salad" Now, my own observation. Intelligence may be taken, but wisdom is more demure and prefers to be chased.

    When Did We Stop Expecting Wisdom In Our Leaders?

    In early societies, the elders with wisdom would guide/rule their people. Now it seems who ever has the most money has the power to rule and those with the ethics and wisdom are pushed aside. It seems like it has been a long process of brainwashing people into thinking what is...
