Why I want to be stupid.
As the title suggests, I wish to be stupid. This is why:
First, what does intelligence do to me?
- I missed a lot of opportunities in the past, just due to procrastination. Where does the procrastination come from? From thinking to much. It inhibits my future actions: High intelligence means high self reflexion. Nothing is good enough. I am not good enough. It destroys motivation: When you realise nothing is important, what is left over that drives you? It isolates: When you reach a high level of thinking, others dont understand you anymore and bag you as weird. It harms trust: When you analyse every body movement of the oppenent, every comment made, you always find something going against you.
Secondly, Why do I envy “stupid” people?
- They dont think. They do. Naturally, they do a lot of “mistakes”. They consum, watch trash tv, eat junk food. You say this is wrong. But theyre not aware of that. In their perspective, the brand makes them feel good, tv is entertaining, burgers just taste good. They just dont care. So, if you go a step further, animals can be seen models for me. They do just exactly what they are here see. Do we know? No. When you come with an evolutional explanation, does it make you happy? …Alright, Im here to survive and to pass on my genes. Hm…then, for what do we need such a size of brain? For me, it just makes us conscious about of how fucked up everything is. Its a evolutionary mistake that will be selected out anyway, as intelligent people get less children.
And all this stuff I talked about now is what stupid people do not waste a any second with. How wonderful is that?
Now, Im here at high existence.
Well, I probably be able to forecast you answers. You come up with being in the present, or with meditating. But what is their essence?
- To stop thinking. In other words, to neglect our intelligence potential. Unfortunately, this is what intelligent people built their personality on. I can admit, Im rather introverted. I will never be the popular, funny guy favored in our extrovert society. My brain is my asset. So, who am I without my way of thinking? My self? If I would only be my self, no Ego, no “I”, I would just go around satisfying my basic needs, means, just eating, sleeping, fucking. And guess what? This is what animals basically do, and narrow minded people to an extent.
What do you think? Maybe, I already proved my stupidity with my statements? Now, I want to discuss with some clever guys :)
