#6 Intelligence is Demanding

#6 Intelligence is Demanding: After Brightest Star from Alexis Pauline Gumbs on Vimeo.

“Intelligence is ongoing individual adaptation…Yet intelligence is demanding.” -Octavia Butler

This poem is about how demanding intelligence is and how hard it is to plot the points of change when all our points of adaptations are different and linked. How do you make decisions with groups of people? Does intelligence ever hinder you? Does the combined intelligence of everyone in the room sometimes make you unintelligible to each other? How does a group trust its evolutionary gut? Please share with friends and share your experiences in the comments.
