You may have heard about SETI - Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence. An equally futile enterprise might be STI - Search for Terrestrial Intelligence, lol. Every single day, but especially today, I witnessed the 'uncomfortable comfort zone habit operating system' take priority over what was just the right, easy thing to do. Incredible. Sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in a robot factory watching all that programming in action.
"Well, if droids could think, there'd be none us of here, would there?"
Obi-Wan makes sense of it all though, if we'd be intelligent enough we could have evolved out of here already, and the bright side of duality: yesterday, I suggested to someone simply changing perception regarding 'a problem' they had, and they were able to right away, not even a 'yes, but!', so that was excellent dedroidifying. The guy even saw visual flashes of the conditioning moments that lead him to have that opinion in the first place, something I have too and sometimes do as an exercise. The universe continues to baffle me, so yin yang, hehe:
"The universe is an intelligence test."
