the relationship between life, people, and intelligence

The difference between ignorant and educated people is that educated people have had more facts stuffed into them
but that has nothing to do with whether they are stupid or clever
we could say that the difference between stupid and intelligent people is that the intelligent people cope better with subtlety.
Education here does not play a role.
Intelligent people are not confused by ambiguous or contradictory situations
in fact, they become suspicious when things are too straightforward: here be demons.

Intelligence requires thought.
Intelligence is honed by life,
but life does not necessarily confer intelligence on the liver:
merely growing old does not lead to intelligence
and it is the application of thought that hints at the intelligence that lies beneath
