Intelligence, the ability to understand, is easily the most highly
valued of our mental faculties. Who would not rather admit lapses of
memory, or even lack of imagination, than weakness of understanding?
Stupidity, (the chronic inability to understand anything beyond the
trivial), cannot be redeemed by prodigious feats of memory or compensated
for by vivid flights of fancy.
I'm counting on you to figure out the misunderstanding about the
universe and post it here! You are the number one person who I know that
might pull it off. :-)
