When I was Kid, I discovered somehow that I can flip my mind and be the first of my class, but also flip my mind and be measured as the Kid with the lowest IQ. t was so fun, but only for me!
I’ve got mathematics and physics awards and prizes, and was loved by my teachers and my dad. I was a “very good kid” when I’m in Flip 1 mode. However, I loved to switch to Flip2, but I’ll get beaten and isolated because in that mode I have some kind of clairvoyance. I can see people through, with all their lies and insecurities, and when I’d speak up my mind, I’d ran into lot of trouble.
To please my father, and be likened, I kept only my flip 1 mode, and was always the best of my class, when I was not to hard on my weakest teachers.
When, I reached university, I found consolation in philosophy. Finally a bunch of fools like me. For my master degree I chose a topic on “Dionysos, the only God that laughs” (because there is only one thing the devil can’t stand is laughter).
It’s a curse to be smart. You see all the lies and insecurities in people and society. If you have compassion, you become a philanthropist without money. You give yourself to others.
If you have no compassion, you become cynical, close to psychopath, but rewarded with what is called “success”. Even, the psychopaths have to become philanthropist, because they know All that success is vanity and lies!
