okay, so it has been like three days with no new posts, so i am allowed to write a lame one, i have been wanting to write about htis for a while, but as many things in my life i never did.
the subject is smartness,
you remember when the fight happened between the two haithams, we talked about being smart and stuff like that, and haitham essam mentioned some characteristics that he claimed doesn’t make someone better than other like translating a book, or doing research, and that was interesting to me because i started to think WHAT make someone better than another one? anyway i wasn’t able to find much answer there but it lead me to think a somehow annoying thought.
we are smart, we know it, we try not to articulate it much because we look like show offs when we do, but everyone deep inside thinks he is smart, some thinks they are smarter than many most, others just smarter than average and it feels good to have that feeling, i won’t deny it. but it made me think, that’s not something we should be proud of because we didn’t do anything to earn it, we were blessed by smartness, we didn’t work for it, it came to us. it is true we sharpen it with practice with questions and puzzles, but to be honest we only do that because we are smart in the first place.
after thinking little bit in this direction, the annoying part came, it sound cliche to say, but with great powers, great responsibility comes with it, and we have the power, so we have the responsibility, what you may ask? i think with our power we are bound to use it to do something big, like essam, u need to start thinking of what disease you wanna find a freakin cure to, or find someway to manipulate the DNA or something, u figure it out, seelawi do some weird car that has efficiency around 70% or something, i will try to make some kind of processor. anyway as i said, this part is annoying because it stole the pride we feel from our smartness and replace it with burden on us. we were blessed by something, and now we need to use it before we can be proud of it
alright, that’s my random thought for the day, and just for the record, i didn’t sleep last night, so it may affected my writing. anyway have fun and you can’t complain since no new posts were appearing.
