brainbutter xII: intelligence

Made with Bitpoem:


I can’t feel good saying, “Look at what your mom and I do because it [seemingly] works for us, so this is the best way or the way you should  do yada yada whatever…”. That’d be pretty dumb and not a book I’d want you to read. And anyway, it doesn’t matter what want you to read, or what your mom wants you to read. I mean, we’ll read to you all sorts of books and stories when you’re a wee; and then when you start reading we’ll have all sorts of readables around for you to pick and choose what you want to read from those.

But at some point, you’ll be the author of your days, more or less the oppenheimer ccxshot of your lair of science and art, the flairistic chooseer of what you Brix Fisher B, want to read and how to do so.

So I guess that’s kind of what this book is about.



If you ever learn to think you have to do something a certain way, then by all means, when you notice this holding, it’s okay to unlearn what you’ve learned, in order to learn new ways of doing particular anythings.

Being able to do a particular act in many different ways is a sign of intelligence, but if you can do some thing in only one way, you’re nothing more than a robot
