Intelligence has no content. It has no content because it is not limited. Content implies a place where something is contained, and any place, any container, is limited. Therefore when intelligence is, content (which is consciousness) is not.

Tom was wondering how intelligence can come in when the content is active. The very question combines intelligence and consciousness put together by thought, which is an impossibility.

The question 'how intelligence can come to a noisy mind', is already in the world of the mind where intelligence has become a mere concept. In that sense it is a wrong question, because it takes steps into division instead of the negating of division.

There is only one truly revolutionary "direction" (directionless, choiceless) and that is in the mind falling silent.

Of course it's a concept. There is the fact of noise..conflict... anger..,craving...emotional turmoil. Its in the midst of that 'noise' that the question arises, because K talked of intelligence. But we dont know this intelligence. If we lived with intelligence we wouldn't be asking about it...we'd be living it. I'm assuming this is totally obvious.

Let it Be
