The human intelligence is always been phenomenal, all the path-breaking inventions starting from language, wheel-axle, the compass, the light bulb, the automobile, the computer, and internet were not possible if the human didn't develop the intelligence.
Classically intelligence is defined as the ability to understand and apply them in a situation. It should be noted that the word intelligence was derived from the Latin word intelligere meaning understanding. In other words, we can define intelligence as the ability to recollect stored information to apply them in a new situation.
There has been always confusion on which planet rules the highest intelligence, is it, Mercury or Jupiter? What if Mercury and Jupiter have a conversation about this and answer our doubt? Let us hear their opinion.
Jupiter : What is your role in human intelligence?
Mercury : Without me, humans may not have traveled this far. It is impossible for them to read this discussion sitting in one corner of the world.
Jupiter : How do you make human an intelligent species?
Mercury : I gave them the capability to think, innovate, and find solutions to their problems. Because of thinking capability human stand out a superior species among the living beings.
Jupiter : How do you help them to think?
Mercury : I help them to store the information in their brain and retrieve it whenever needed.
Jupiter : Can you give me an example?
Mercury : If a child slipped in a wet floor one time then it will store that information in the brain through a neurological connection. So next time when a similar situation happens it would recall the stored data and avoid an accident.
Jupiter : What is your role in creating neurological connection?
Mercury : I am the ruler of the neurological system. Whenever humans experience a new situation, I help them in creating a new neurological connection in their brain. More the experience the neurological connection becomes stronger.
Jupiter : Tell me one thing, how human get the experience in the first place?
Mercury : Human gets the experience of the outside world through sensory organs.
Jupiter : What are they? and how it works?
Mercury : I am the ruler of communication. Humans communicate with the outside world through five sensory organs viz Eyes, nose, ears, tongue and the body. Through these sensory organs they see, smell, hear, taste and feel.
Jupiter : So, without any these sensory organs and communications becoming intelligent is impossible?
Mercury : Yes, I can proudly say that I am the reason for human intelligence. By the way, you have been asking only questions so far. What role do you play in human civilization?
Jupiter : I give human wisdom. A power to see and experience outside sensory organs.
Mercury : Come on, experience outside sensory organs? That's impossible.
Jupiter : Why not? This is definitely possible, so many people already experienced this.
Mercury : That's sounds interesting but at the same time unable to understand.
Jupiter : That is what exactly your limitation ie: limitation of the rational mind.
Mercury : Curious to know how the experience is possible outside sensory organs?
Jupiter : First, do you agree that human sensory organs have limitations?
Mercury : What sort of limitation do they have?
Jupiter : With physical eyes, do human able to see an object a few miles away?
Mercury : No
Jupiter : Right, all the physical organs has limitation. It can't communicate beyond a certain radius.
Mercury : What else can travel without any limitation?
Jupiter : An elevated mind can travel without any physical limitation and can communicate without any medium.
Mercury : Mind blogging, Do humans anytime experienced it?
Jupiter : Yes, ancients seers of mankind were able to experience this through the power of meditation. There were able to know the absolute truth without the help of any sensory organs. This is why they were able to know the past, present, and future.
Buddha once said "Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue"
Mercury : If humans are able to visualize and understand anything without any physical limitation, then that can be called as the highest form of intelligence(Wisdom). I agree that you are the reason for the highest intelligence in human being.
There is no doubt Mercury that gives the rational thinking ability to humans, with which they were able to achieve great technological advancements and convenience today. It is equally important to note that Jupiter gives wisdom, maturity, philosophical inclination and peace among the humans. Without influence of Jupiter human would never achieve peace and harmony.
