For most people Intelligence is a beloved talent, a capacity to be proud
of. At school it is one of the first things to be examined. There are diverse
tests to measure the IQ quantitatively. Besides, human intelligence is
the example for artificial intelligence. However ingenious this artificial
intelligence may become, there is not even a remote possibility of its
replicating human intelligence via some technical 'living' artificial
intelligence. Even the simplest human thought processes require endless
sequences of decisions, when they have to be formulated by technical
intelligence. On the other hand, for the machine it is possible in less than
a second to come to conclusions to questions that would probably take a
whole human lifetime...
But as an area of spirituality - intelligence is not acknowledged. There
seems to be a view that intelligence is a field that has to be abandoned if
we want to penetrate into the deeper wisdom of existence.
In this book the author has started to prove the contrary. Intelligence is the
mind itself and through bringing the mind into activity - with no other
purpose than this very activity - intelligence proves its spirituality itself. We
don't even need a high IQ, although its level rises itself as a result of such
activity. In addition, we don't need any faith - this also will emerge through
this activity. The only thing we really need is a certain discipline to dedicate
our time to intelligence - twenty minutes or so, two times a day.
