In the beginning, there was nothing, but in order for there to be nothing, there had to be something to show what nothing was, and then the universe was born. (Tao te Ching - my bad translation)
So, in order for there to be intelligent people, there have to be stupid ones to show what an intelligent person is? No. We can all be intelligent, we can all be educated or educate ourselves to a high enough level to appreciate life in all its good and bad parts. It just depends whether you are intelligent enough to realise you're stupid. And there's the problem. I think John Cleese said the same many years back. The first step is to notice.
Anyway, enough about stupidity. How about intelligence? Such as supporting an indie and buying/reading Under the Shade of the Sun, recommend it to your friends, and review it! You could also pre-order the 2nd! And wait for the 3rd and 4th!
You can Pre-Order the 2nd here! (It'll probably come out at the end of May 2021)
