nope; not at all. intelligence covers many specific and abstract (and unknown) brain regions, although ability to communicate certainly wraps up the whole thing like a well-crafted burrito.

that's as it should be IMO. think about the utter rubbish that we've been relentlessly spoon-fed since infancy and the only sane position left is to be a cynic upon most modern human affairs. that certainly leaves room for a lot of clueless and violent wackos, of course, but i happen to respect a different type of cynic, if you grok me.

...

so what was i really aiming for by "absolute smartest people?"

i guess i'd say- not only terrific ability in any particular field (or a high ability across a number of areas), not only terrific ability (and patience) to communicate their understanding in these matters, but also a certain ability to understand the monumentally-challenging concept that 'many things can be true without necessarily contradicting each other'... one of the toughest and mind-blowing concepts for mortals to take on, evidently. one which tends to easily rip apart religion, cherished beliefs of all types, sentimentality, bigotry, and science and reasoning of even slightly-dated vintage.

another one i'll throw in there is the concept that ignorance is the foundation of all knowledge, wisdom, and indeed, enlightenment.

- blowhard gigantes, at your service, i'm sure.
