Human Intelligence & Reason.

Greetings, respect, tolerance etc.

Greetings, respect, tolerance etc.

Two of the qualities said, often with a degree of superiority, to define humans are intelligence and the ability to reason, yet neither of these nor their combination has enabled humans to live with one another with tolerance and in peace. Instead we have, consistently, vigourously called upon our animal instincts of territorial defence to do the opposite. We have also adopted a similar reaction to the defence of our religious beliefs – often, sadly, at the behest of the religious hierarchy.
This is neither intelligent nor reasonable.

About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood, he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of regular periods of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book. February 2020. My search - my journey, is now complete.

      Correct, and that is why I have stated “Two of the qualities said . . . . . . . . . . . . to define humans are intelligence . . .” 🙂
