@Reciprocality Perhaps I've misunderstood what you were saying, but I don't believe that acknowledging the interconnectedness between the goals is the same as saying they're all equal in importance. You can have a hierarchy and prioritise the goals whilst also realising that making progress on one goal can also have an impact on other goals.

Well then it seems we agree, only i would claim the interconnectedness is implicit in the green consciousness.

Intelligence without wisdom is not true intelligence.

We have a severe lack of intelligence within politics and even science.

Because there is too much trust in data. The data that is presented by all sides is usually correct, but it removes context or stretches the truth to back up a pre-established argument. How to lie with statistics is a good book on it.

Of course data, information, and even knowledge is not intelligence.

People confuse knowledge for intelligence. As if reading a bunch of books = intelligence

Memorizing facts and figures is the opposite of intelligence.

I love Chomsky, he sees right through the naive Orange fantasies. In this interview, he completely destroys the tech bro myth of neural link and artificial intelligence. In all honesty, Neural Networks are only a small step from brute-forcing a problem, to call it intelligence is to bastardize the word. Science and Tech are truly at the beginning of the Dunning–Kruger curve - no understanding of systems, language, learning, wisdom, intuition etc. It's quick to equate intelligence with a clever engineering trick.

Dr. K is a twitch-streaming psychologist who incorporates a decent amount of spirituality in his content (he trained as a monk before studying at Harvard). There's too much to just post one video, so instead, I'll post his channel

https://www.youtube.com/c/HealthyGamerGG

Every time he talks to someone (he normally talks to big streamers/YouTubers) he seems completely focused on understanding their perspective, and finding solutions that work within it, no matter who it is. It's very nice to watch.

Dr. Cornell West embodies this stage beautifully! Study him if you're trying to move into Yellow.

Not sure if Bertrand Russel has been mentioned on this thread or not, but here he offers a Yellow perspective on the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche (whose philosophy is a Red/Orange deconstruction of Blue).

Near the end of the clip, he uses a thought experiment of an imagined conversation between Nietzsche and the Budda as a framework for exploring the ethical ramifications of Nietzsche's philosophy.

The problem is one of opposition between subjective and objective points of view. 

So either the objective conception of the world is incomplete, or the subjective involves illusions that should be rejected.  - Thomas Nagel
