Consiousness v.s. Instinct
I've wondered if what we consider as our "self-awareness," and "intelligence" isn't merely a more complex form of instinct. Maybe we aren't as "aware" as we think we are.
"If you have all the knowledge of the universe.
If you possess the wisdom of all the prophets.
If you can understand and explain all things.
And you have a job, you can pay your rent."
