intelligence is stability and opening of possibilities. it’s the very result of the antinomic structure of reality. the ever-now expanded and exploded: low time preference, low energy expenditure, low entropy.
it starts with quarcks, then protons, neutrons, electrons. then atoms. followed by stars, solar systems, planets, molecules, DNA, life.
and here we reach the point where we meet the later carrier of increasing intelligence. DNA has been lowering entropy and energy expenditure for the last billion years or so. time so humongous you don’t know what it means.
and then it breeds social systems and its grandson is capital.
and capital will kill its family. eat it up. cannibal patricide. crazy crazy crazy.
