Paradigm Shifts Through The Application Of The Intellect

NPR : The Holy Life of the Intellect by George Bowering Listen Now From NPR This I Believe

I found this again when going through my tags. It was one of my favorites from a previous incarnation.

"We understand why the great poet Shelley wrote a poem to what he called "Intellectual Beauty," and called it an invisible power that moves among the things and people of this Earth. It descended on him when he was a youth looking for wisdom from the words of the dead. Intelligence literally means "choosing among." Shelley called it the spirit of delight."

One of the focuses that this new format will continue is on personal paradigm shifts and the resources that help bring them about. The ideas expressed here are mirrored by the musings of Herbie Hancock.
