I'm trying to come up with a codified definition for the word intelligence. Here is what I came up with:

Intelligence is nothing more than revealing truth with others.

Any thoughts...?

How about:


Intelligence:

revealing truth to others.

So does that mean the opposite is true?

Ignorance = NOT revealing truth to others?

Good question.

Not quite because that would mean the smartest people (White supremacists) are ignorant. This is clearly not the case.

Ignorance = lack of knowledge.

It is usually a passive state of being.

Should the definition of a word and its opposite always be balanced?

Josh,

Quote:

Josh


You definition appears sound. You replaced "with", with "to". If I am correct, this implies that intelligence (the act of revealing truth)is directional, or more accurately goes in one direction. From the one who knows truth, (truth-holder) to one that does not know truth. Is this a correct interpretation of your meaning?

Logically speaking, wouldn't the opposite of intelligence would be deception? Under a system of white supremacy intelligence and deception are two and the same. And to answer your question, it seems to me that only codified words provide balance.

If intelligence is revealing information, then the opposite is NOT revealing truth to others.

This means that you could chose either ignorance or deception.

Ignorance is more of a passive thing, while deception is active.

I find it ironic that YOU would point that out, after all the decpetion you've practiced on this board.
