From your perspective, what is the relation between intelligence and beauty?

Robert says:

Sound in general. Harmonics in particular.

The Universe is Sound. Nada Brahma.

What do you think Leo?

now says:

visuals, direction, colours, synesthesia? organically, symmetrc, asymmetric, branched, relational? all aspects of beauty all aspects of intelligence

now says:

forgot: circular, spirally, round etc. all relative to it’s system.

i liked the clean cut, clean line shirt. and less beard more (has something to do with beard paradigm, hehe) clean lines are a nice contrast to the mooving human body. they have the effect of making someone more androgyn but for example in woman, making them more masculine (don’t know if that’s understandable) if that’s the case they must have some masculine aspects maybe making someone just more clear lined. but if you like to represent what you see, or just don’t feel like shaving, it’s fine. attractive points i would say, where higher before.

It has been interesting discovering this website back in 2014, catching up with the videos I missed, and watching them as they come out for the past 4 years. At some point, the personal development ultimately led to seeking enlightenment … I guess, if taken to the extreme, where else could you go.

It is very clear to see the vast improvement in understanding and in public speaking (namely, rushed and hurried vs. purposeful).

Looking forward to the next video / podcast.

Hey Leo. Being a student of increasing one’s intelligence I was wondering if you’d agree with the definition of intelligence as “The ability to differentiate.”? For example being able to identify a “coke can” vs. being able to differentiate the identity of the can from the infinite intelligence behind its existence. Holding both perspectives simultaneously as it were.

Marcin says:

What about free will? If there are infinite causes and effects which we simply can’t grasp there is no free will and Schopenhauer was right . Will you shoot video about free will someday?


Patrick says:

Leo, I think I understand this, but I feel like it is really pretty simple:

I am Consciousness. Consciousness is infinite and intelligent. And I don’t know why.

Am I wrong here? This seems to be as close to the truth as I can get at the moment.

Don says:


You have chosen a very deep and challenging question and I admire your courage for this. When I saw the title “what is intelligence?” my first thought was to not try to answer this question and my next thought was how deep is he going to go with this? I would guess some people are not entirely ready for this healthy dose of existentialism but I enjoyed every bite like a nice bowl of delicious fresh mystery fruit. Sharing your personal experience was essential and informative and as soon as you identified the universe as a big mind, shared the quotes from ancient history and emphasized the points of perspective I embraced your thinking. There is a book I have read several times by the title “The Kyballion” showing as one of the Laws of the Universe “All is mind, the Universe is Mental” which essentially describes your view.
I continue to meditate and thank you for your words of wisdom.

Leo, where is the free will in all this? Whether it exists or not. Or let’s say the SENSE of free will? That sense exists more or less in people… Seriously Leo, shed some lights here. It’s like a big missing piece.

Dave says:

My understanding and reflection of this talk is: Eternal consciousness contains infinite intelligence; infinite intelligence gives rise to infinite form; form (i.e. humans, rocks, plants, etc) experiences, thus eternal consciousness gives rise to infinite experience. As soon as form arises, that form, whether human or rock, has limits and boundaries. Therefore, while it cannot EXPERIENCE infinite intelligence (generally, unless it transcends this form), it CONTAINS infinite intelligence. As infinite experience is a result of the creation of infinite form out of infinite intelligence, while some forms or experiences may seem bad or evil from our perspective, they are just a part of the whole, and thus it is just our limited perspective that labels them as such.
So, on one sense our human purpose of this life is just to experience, in the form in which we are now contained. However, spiral dynamics, for example, serves as a model to say that perhaps we are here for something more. But is that something more as simple as helping our fellow human beings to come to exactly this realization (that Leo has guided me to) and thus help understand and minimize human suffering, which is merely the result of being separated from the infinite, and therefore is transient and not real???
