A Eulogy for Human Intelligence

Postby fschmidt » Fri Jan 22, 2016 12:13 pm

I think the time has come to write a eulogy for Human Intelligence. If no one else is up to the task, I will try.

I am not sure of the exact date of death of Human Intelligence, presumably a few years ago. And just as a dead body may contain a few cells still living, there may still live a few intelligent people, but Human Intelligence as a whole is clearly dead. Those who do not believe in resurrection of the dead should simply accept reality and mourn the death of Human Intelligence and then move on. And for this purpose, I feel that a good eulogy is in order.

There's always a tendency to wax nostalgic about "the 'good old days," but in all probability life has always been "solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short" to quote Hobbes. Although not short enough, it would seem.

Write your eulogy. It's a good idea. Even if you do a shoddy job putting it together it will be better than anything our abysmal popular culture is churning out.

I don't have a eulogy for him, but here's an obituary:

"Intelligence passed away this year after eons of struggle. He is preceded in death by his friends Common Sense, Morality, and Dignity. Intelligence is survived by no family members, having no living parents, siblings, uncles or aunts, or cousins. The memorial service for Intelligence was held at The Souls of Men Funeral Home, although the service ended prematurely due to lack of attendees. In lieu of flowers, Intelligence's will asked for mourners to instead read books that are not contemporary pop-garbage, learn history's lessons instead of memorizing dates, and thinking for oneself instead of conforming to the irrational beliefs of the masses."
