What's next?

"Stupid people do stupid things, smart people outsmart each other. Then themselves." -System of the Down.

Alright, so half the people in the world are stupid. That is fact. I am not going to talk about stupid people here. When I say anyone here I mean any non stupid person.

There are alot of smart people are out there. Alot of them. I have been friends with alot of very smart people. I have met a lot of very smart people. I am not talking about college grads. That does not impress me. College is assembly line education. You put in your time on the line and you walk away with a piece of paper to show you did it. (College is GREAT for those people that go to refine how to learn, but most people go because they think they should).

Here's the deal with smart people: for the most part EVERYONE has access to the same information. You are an expert in "X"? Great, give another smart person a few years and she will be too. Any smart person can learn anything. We all have the same data. Same books (by the way, books are opinions). Same ability to find knowledge holders. Knowledge is easy to get. Smart people tend to think that having knowledge makes them smart. Wrong. It makes you knowledgable. (Knowledgable people are the worst! They are the ones that want to argue with me to prove to whoever that they are knowledgable. Guess what I care so little that I have removed myself of the company of alot of these people.).

Knowledge is cool. But who cares? You retained some stuff that anyone can retain. Great.

Where am I going with this?

Dear smart people, there is another level. Anyone can compile data. Anyone can know the past. Anyone can know the present. The next level is using that information, and reading the future. Its out there. Anyone can know the future. You have the variables. You have the formulas. You have the relations. You have everything you need. Take it to the next level. You can gather data. I know because you tell everyone the data.

For example, you know that you have 1. You know you have 2. You know the formula for addition. But you all miss out on the future. Some see the 1s. Some see the 2s. Some see 1+2. Open your eyes. See that 1+2=3. See the next level. If that didnt make sense, than you prob fall in the second stanza of this blog...sorry to confuse you.

Change the world. Open up your eyes. Use your intelligence. See what's next. Quit wasting time. The answers are right there. Some people are color blind. Don't be future-blind. Just look.

Nice one JR.

nothing wrong with having 2 extra chromosomes!

All the answers are out there for us, if we just open our eyes and see the relations between the variables!

Just because ur smart and can learn something dosen't mean squat without the ability/willpower to do something with it. If u just spent 2 yrs learning something just because u wanted more knowledge I don't see a bigger waste of time. I mean you could of done things in that 2 yrs that would actually come in handy, like playing video games. At least you can be the grand smack talker of the latest fighting game.
