The intellectual argument, per se, is often slave of the code of beliefs of an individual and rarely is manifested through an outcome that involved spiritual insight or self-reflection, but instead it reveals itself as an expression of cultural tradition and preconceptions.
“Man is not logical and his intellectual history is a record of mental reserves and compromises. He hangs on to what he can in his old beliefs even when he is compelled to surrender their logical basis.”
The same way we distinguish the intellectually insightful from the cultured and creative individuals, it is important to differentiate the concept of intellectualized beings and evolved beings.
From the mystical perspective, evolution refers to a process of increasing the ratio of Universal consciousness on one Individual’s life. This process naturally unleash a sense of social and global responsibility, an increase of Altruism, the sense of duty, service to others, and compassion to all the sentient forms of life, not only the human ones. An advanced human being, touched by Divine Grace, does not need necessarily to be extremely intellectualized, even though most of the intellectuals we meet tend to show themselves as highly evolved. The premature judgment of their character based upon the number of books read, or titles that they collected through life, can cause disappointment to the gentle soul; the confusion between these two concepts can really muddle the waters of reality.
