Humanity has stopped thinking reasoning and judging. And the human intellect remains emaciated Educational institutions merely focus on providing knowledge, intelligence with no plan or program to develop the intellect. The world today is all intelligence, no intellect.

The loss of intellect has left humans with stress, depression and disease. And a world infested with vandalism, militancy and terrorism. Humanity now faces an urgent need to rehabilitate, reconstruct the fallen intellect.

You are humans. You have the ability to rebuild the intellect. Rise above the crisis. Regain the sovereign status of the human species.

Preface

The human species alone, none other, needs an intellect for its survival. Hence it is blessed with this wondrous equipment to think, to reason and decide its course of action through life. Not realising the vital role the intellect plays in this world, humans have ignored and neglected it to a point of grievous fault.

Intellect is not intelligence. Intelligence is acquired from external agencies which renders one well informed, knowledgeable. But that does not build, improve one's intellect. The intellect has to be developed by oneself. There is no plan or program in the world today to develop the human intellect. The world has been imprudent in merely promoting and procuring different branches of knowledge. And people are left with a barren intellect.

The consequences of such negligence are immeasurable. Humanity is tom apart into divisions and demarcations. It has engendered bitterness and hatred, militancy and terrorism everywhere. The human race is now becoming an endangered species threatened with extinction.

You have the capacity and the expertise to avert this crisis. Arise. Save yourselves. Save the world.
