So what exactly is Intelligence in our world today?
Who subscribes to this Intelligence?
Who on earth needs this Intelligence?
Can we truly evolve with this Intelligence?
Are we at the mercy of this Intelligence?
Are we afraid to go against this Intelligence?
Is this the only form of Intelligence?
Is this Intelligence the be all and end all?
Do we need to challenge this Intelligence?
Do we have the right to question this Intelligence?
Do we negate those who do not subscribe to this Intelligence?
Do we label those who we think are not part of this Intelligence?
Does this Intelligence dominate us all?
WHY do we give our power away to this kind of Intelligence?
WHY is all our education geared towards this Intelligence?
What happens if we don’t fit into this Intelligence?
In other words, we are not academic and we don’t tick the boxes in formal education but nevertheless we have something different to offer of EQUAL VALUE.
Are we ready to start asking questions and keep asking questions about our current form of Intelligence?
Are we ready to apply good old fashioned common sense before anything else?
Are we ready to consider that maybe What is Intelligence – Part 1 is saying something that makes sense?
The author of the blog is talking about not having a formal education and does that equate to not being Intelligent?
Our world has a classification for what is Intelligent and what is not.
So what happens to those, like the author of this blog?
Are they simply dismissed as they have no formal qualifications?
Are they negated because society demands letters before their name?
Are they not taken seriously as their Intelligence is “outside the box”?
Mina Bissell talks about cancer cells and she is making sense, so WHY are we not all jumping on the bandwagon and getting behind this kind of research?
If what she is saying makes simple sense, then WHY are we stopping it from going further?
WHY are the majority of researchers not thinking “outside the box” like Mina Bissell?
Doctors’ suicides are seen as a secret in the profession.
WHY do we have so many doctors suiciding now?
WHY are they seen as secret when this stuff really matters?
What on earth is going on for these Intelligent members of society?
We all know the huge amount of training our doctors go through and we class them as super Intelligent in our world.
So how do we explain how someone so Intelligent takes their life?
What about the doctors who contemplate suicide?
What is the Intelligence that drives them?
Weakness in medicine is a failing and if you admit to struggling, the unspoken opinion (or often spoken) is that you simply could not hack it.
It is a sink or swim culture – and often trainees were left to sink.
Anonymous First Year Doctor (1)
Female doctors are twice as likely to take their own lives. (2)
The most common psychiatric diagnoses among physicians who suicide are affective disorders, for example – depression and bipolar disease, alcoholism and substance abuse. (3)
55% of doctors during their first year, experienced high rates of burnout and symptoms of emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation and a reduced sense of personal accomplishment.
University of Pennsylvania – 2006 (2)
300 – 400 physicians suicide every year – a doctor a day. (3)
17.1% of male and 20.5% female medical students experienced suicidal ideation.
Junior doctors are under extreme pressure because of a hospital culture that fosters a competitive environment and places young people under intense scrutiny with extremely long work hours.
Brad Frankum, President, Australia Medical Association (AMA), New South Wales
20 doctors in New South Wales have suicided from 2007 – 2016.
Coroner informed that there were possibly more because the police don’t always record occupations.
Brad Hazzard, Health Minister, New South Wales
Hazzard acknowledged that all medical staff are at risk of suicide.
We all know first-hand of the challenges faced by those in our profession.
We see this happening all around us; alcoholism, drug abuse, divorce, mental health problems, suicide, chronic disease exacerbated by stress, carcinomas.
Suicide levels are more than twice as high as the background population.
Dr Zoe Greaves (6)
How alarming is this for us all to consider that our doctors who are classed as highly Intelligent members of society are contemplating or taking their own lives.
If they are the Intelligent ones then what is this Intelligence that does not save them from serious self-harm?
Doctors are in the profession to help others and are highly skilled and super trained with so much knowledge, but what is going on inside their minds that makes them even think about ending their own lives?
What Intelligence is fostering a culture where there is a competitive environment that adds enormous pressure to a doctor’s already demanding job?
The ‘brightest youths’, in a research study by University College London, were more than twice as likely at ages 18 – 20 than those in the lowest group to drink “regularly and persistently”.
They were also twice as likely to use cannabis. (7)
Is this spelling out something to us?
Can we join the dots here?
WHY would our brightest students want to drink alcohol?
WHY do our clever students need to drink a poison called alcohol?
WHY are they more likely to smoke pot when they are so Intelligent?
What is the Intelligence that they subscribe to that negates the body?
We all know from scientific research that Alcohol and Cannabis alter our natural state of being. So what is the Intelligence that endorses this and allows this to continue?
What is going on for our brightest youth that puts them on the path of study with alcohol and cannabis?
What are we accepting as a society if our academic students are choosing substances that harm the mind and body?
WHY would our Intelligent students consider taking drugs and alcohol?
Does this make any sense?
We all know our body carries some kind of Intelligence because it does stuff that man simply cannot explain and has yet to discover.
Serge Benhayon is already presenting that –
What if our mind is not in our brain but in our whole body?
What if our real Intelligence is when we use our whole body as one? (8)
More on this in our blog about True Intelligence.
The human body is in a class of its own when it comes to Intelligence.
It is like the biggest perfect design and has an infrastructure like no other.
Each department works with absolute respect and in harmony with the whole.
It has a built in sleep and wake cycle, yet we as humans, who class ourselves as the most Intelligent species on earth, seem to ignore this natural rhythm.
Check out our sleep blog to see how huge our global sleep issues are today.
Another great example of the human body Intelligence is the Blood Brain Barrier.
To keep it super simple we have a membrane that protects our brain from anything that is harmfull – bit like a gatekeeper.
Check this out –
Certain molecules do cross the blood brain barrier like –
WHY are we not educated on this simple fact about how to protect our brain?
What Intelligence are we subscribing to that says it is ok to harm our brain on a daily basis with our coffee consumption?
WHY are we not joining the dots and asking WHY is caffeine legal?
We all know Alcohol is a scientific proven poison so where is our Intelligence when we say it is ok to drink alcohol responsibly?
WHY do Intelligent people drink a poison, which we call Alcohol?
Can we really drink poison responsibly?
Where is the Intelligence in that?
On that note, so many of our university students are part of a drinking culture and this is what society calls our future Intelligence.
What is Intelligent about consuming poison whilst studying?
What is this telling us about our academics and the stress they are choosing just to fit in and be social?
50% UK academics having symptoms of psychological distress.
Academics experience higher stress levels than the wider population.
Stress levels are increasing due to heavy workloads, a long hours culture and conflicting management demands.
Depression, sleep issues, eating disorders, alcoholism, self-harming and suicide attempts occurring in PhD students. (9)
Hello – can we go back and re-read the above?
This is what is going on with the top notch of society that then tell us all what we need to be doing.
We rely on their academic knowledge to navigate our future.
We champion them and say they know what they are doing but do they really if this stuff is going on during their studies?
If they are truly Intelligent then surely they would not ever do anything to harm their mind or body?
WHY are researchers not studying themselves and those we call the academics of society to find out what the root issue is?
Perfectionism is also an issue.
By that I mean when someone is aiming for and constantly expecting really high standards, so that even when there is a positive outcome they feel they have fallen short. So instead of internal aspiration helping them to do well it hinders them.
Pat Hunt, Head of Counselling Service for staff and students, Nottingham University (9)
… you are only as good as your research rating or as good as your ability to bring in funding for research.
There’s still a degree of ‘if you can’t stand the heat, you shouldn’t be here.’
Dr Alan Swann, Chair of the Higher Education Occupational Physicians Committee, Imperial College London (9)
Reading the above why on earth are students at this high level of education, under so much pressure to perform and be rated?
Imagine our self worth if it is based on our ability to bring in funding for research.
What sort of Intelligence demands that of other fellow humans?
The following real life examples are worth reading –
PhD in Health Sciences – Canadian University
“At the beginning of my PhD, the director of the department gave our entire cohort a lecture about not getting pregnant and told one of my friends when she applied for maternity leave that the PhD should be a time of celibacy. Some of our supervisors publicly and proudly exchanged stories of failed marriages as if this was the ultimate proof of their devotion to research. Others gossiped about promising colleagues who ‘would have achieved so much more’ had they not had children. All of these subtle and not so subtle hints guaranteed that no graduate student, especially those with families, would ever sacrifice enough for their research and would thus, by implication, always be a failure in some respect.”
University of Maine – School of Law, USA
“During my three years of law school, I had to come to grips with my acceptance of and seeking treatment for depression and PTSD. I have been lucky to have had a lot of support from close friends, but I have never shared these issues with the faculty. The law school culture is effectively one along the lines of ‘suck it up’. When I worked in the law school clinic, I actually hid and lied to my professor about the fact that I was struggling with suicidal thoughts because I was afraid of simply being booted out of a clinic I loved.
While a very large amount of law students I have known have coped with mental health issues and even school-related nervous breakdowns, it is not talked about or even admitted beyond close friends.”
PhD in Chemistry – Bangor University, Wales
“In 2010 I started a PhD in chemistry. A year on and the pressure began to build, reaching the point where I had a nervous breakdown. I spent time going to counselling for help but then decided to take a 10-month break from the research I was doing.
Upon returning I was able to work for a few months before falling back into depression because I felt I had no chance of gaining the qualification I desired. I eventually got to the stage where I felt I was going nowhere and cleared my desk late one Saturday, saying nothing to anyone that I was leaving.
While suffering from depression, I felt isolated, as everyone around me was able to get on with their PhDs. I felt I was the problem. I feel I received some support for my issues but more could have been done to ease me back into full-time study after returning.”
PhD in Molecular Biology – Uppsala University, Sweden
“My university and department supported me after I admitted I had been diagnosed with depression. In the beginning I took advantage of studenthälsan, the university’s student health centre. Their team of psychologists and psychiatrists helped me to find the right long-term support. Later, my depression worsened and I was offered a private psychologist at the cost of the department. Yes, my PhD studies are still a demanding job, full of stress, mentally as well as physically but I am glad that in the days where death was the only solution to everything, my colleagues, supervisors and other officials became friends that just wanted to help me.” (9)
WHY do animals not ever disregard their body?
A study published in Scientific Reports confirms that elephants have a high level of understanding and are well regarded as one of the most intelligent animals on the planet, yet our researchers say “we still need more empirical scientific evidence to support this belief”. (10)
Why are we on one hand, calling it a belief when it is there to be seen and felt as living proof of what elephants are capable of?
Is this making any sense and is our current Intelligence of the day missing the point or not joining the simple dots?
Yes research is needed, but when does it stop and how much more do we need to prove something that is innate in animals and makes sense?
Could it be possible that we could learn a few things from the animal world about how respectfull they are towards their body in every way?
Could it be possible that the Intelligence that requires more empirical evidence is holding us back to truly evolve?
WHY do animals not think about having a pint with their mates?
In other words – why do they only eat what they need, never go out on a bender and respect their sleep wake cycle?
Today we have technological advancements that our ancestors would not even dream of but yet we have even more rise in mental health problems and other illnesses and diseases.
Where then does our Intelligence lie?
Have we heard of Artificial Intelligence?
Are we ready for a robot that recognises members of our family at home?
How far have we come that we have created a robot that can initiate our robot vacuum cleaner when we leave the house? (11)
Do we need our washing machine and refrigerator connected to Wi-Fi?
Do we jump on the bandwagon and spend thousands of bucks upgrading our home appliances?
Is that an Intelligent responsible choice?
Is this all just some fun to keep us distracted from real life?
Do we think this is what our future is all about?
How much more are our robots going to be able to do in the future?
Does this help us with the real life stuff that is going on under our nose?
Does this take away the misery of our buried issues?
Does this take us away from the agony of daily life?
Does this deal with our anxiety and stress levels?
Does this support us to be real in a world that is losing control?
Does this really make our life more simple or complicated?
Does this honestly serve us as a race of beings?
Does this in anyway help our current global humanitarian crisis?
We have wars going on
Our refugee crisis getting worse
Genocide in 21st century (12)
Drug wars that never make the news
Obesity on a global scale
Diabetes statistics off the scale
Mental Health in our children
Cyber Abuse with no real policing laws
Prisoners rioting and taking over our jails
Doctors suiciding with the pressures
Teachers resigning due to heavy workloads
Shortage of Medical staff
Are the following blogs confirming something is seriously not right about our current form of Intelligence? –
Female Genital Mutilation
Would it be true to say that our Intelligence is simply not able to keep up with what is going on?
Are we missing another form of Intelligence that we cannot see?
Is our current Intelligence stopping us from getting the bigger picture?
Does our Intelligence blind us from the whole truth that we need to know?
Does our heart have an Intelligence that can connect us to the answers?
What is Intelligence? – Part 1 says at the end – Serge Benhayon is a true living example of what real Intelligence is.
Have we bothered to listen to him?
Have we applied his teachings to everyday life?
Could science benefit from what he has to say?
Could our world change if we started to live as he lives?
Are we ready to study an extraordinary man who shows us what is possible?
Are we open to what he has to say about life on Earth?
Are we interested to find out where his Intelligence comes from?
Are we aware of how much he does in a single day and why he is not sick?
Are we going to question how on earth does he know so much about any subject?
Are we ready to know why many academics now go to him for advice?
Are we really Intelligent or is our current form of Intelligence designed to stop us thinking “outside the box”?
Are we going to take a back seat or be on the front foot and start the conversation as something is not making sense?
Is it high time we started to question and challenge our current form of Intelligence?
Or are we content to just accept things so we don’t rock the boat?
Are we honest enough to admit that our current form of Intelligence has not given us ALL the answers we need right now to get us out of the mess we have created on this Earth?
