    Intelligence is the attribute of man that separates his activity from that of the animals It s a kind of attempt to distinguish the master from the dog, who seems to understand everything but can t speak However, this trivial definition does lead to wittier ones They are based on depressing observations of the aforementioned human activity For example intelligence is the ability of a living creature to perform pointless or unnatural act Yes, that s us There is a 1979 film by Andrei Tar Intelligence is the attribute of man that separates his activity from that of the animals It s a kind of attempt to distinguish the master from the dog, who seems to understand everything but can t speak However, this trivial definition does lead to wittier ones They are based on depressing observations of the aforementioned human activity For example intelligence is the ability of a living creature to perform pointless or unnatural ac...

    I play video games, now and again, but I don t care about being good at them I m not competitive about my skills I m interested in the story, the characters, and the world After a particularly irritating series of losing battles, I frustratedly told a friend I don t want to have to spend a bunch of time practicing and becoming an expert just to get on with the story It would be like having to read the same page of the book over and over until I got it right and ...

    What happens when aliens arrive on Earth and leave again without so much as a hello, leaving behind all their rubbish Naturally, humans want to get involved, for better or worse, despite the fact that the advanced refuse is almost entirely deadly and beyond comprehension This book carries the spirit of a trend in human history The Earth is not at the centre of the Universe, nor is the Universe confined to ...
