One's ability to shape or react to one's environment is one's
iCube, that is, one's integrity of intellect and
intelligence which echos the nature/nuture paradigm or the body/mind duality.
An analogy is a record player in which bad music blares out because physical
sysem is bad or the music played is bad. The two reasons for bad music can
be used to describe two kinds of non-doers in life: The noble savage with
great intellect and no training and the overtrained moron.
One's intellect, that is, one's raw mental or brain power differs through
the day and life. The 90 minute REM cycle is evidence of one's varying mental
power which pulsates through the day as is chained to the more primary digestive
process controlled by the autonomic nervous system. The sleep/wake cycle
is another example of differen levels of intellect based on the state of
the body. The rise and fall of one's cognitive ability from cradle to grave
mirrors one's raw intellect.
One's intellect not only varies hour to hour, day to day and over life but
is at some point on the standard deviation curve.
One's ability to acquire intelligence (information) is facilitated or limited
by one's intellect, that is, one's raw brain power. To expect a moron to
learn calculus is unrealistic. The intellect is below the threshold needed
to integrate the provided intelligence. Due to physical limitation, this
inability is like a 6" leaping frog encountering 7" steps. No matter how
many times he leaps, he will never get up the steps.
Size limited frogs can compensate by "over-achieving" whereby they acquire
tools to make up the height difference, e.g., a 1" box. Unfortunately, the
frog either leaps only one step or must retrieve the box at each step in
order to ascend to the top. Eitherway, the progress of the 6" leaper will
be slower than the 7" frog.
Very importantly, a 6" frog can never discover 7" steps. He can only follow
even it means he has to over-achieve so as to do. To the 6" frog, the 7"
step is an insurmountable wall, a different concept than a step to hurdle.
While one's intellect follows, as a rule, the ying-yang of one's digestive
system, it is physically possible to raise or lower one's intellect by chemicals
(food or drugs) as wells environmentally. The latter occurs when one is studying
a problem in a quiet library or a noisy nightclub. Optimizing one's environoment
to get the most out of one's intellect is a focus and talent that most people
Getting the most out of one's intellect may result in one discovering that
one is really a 7" leaper. However, gettting the most out of one's intellect
is less likely in an education, economic and political system that focuses
on solving the artificial problems of play over real human problems, e.g.,
sports, games, and gambling.
Understanding the difference between the abilities of a 6" and 7" frog rising
to the occasion lends new meaning to the expression, "Size matters."
