My hope was that organizations would start including this range of skills in their training programs - in other words, offer an adult education in social and emotional intelligence.
Many can argue that it is our power of intelligence that is the key to the human domination of our planet. I suggest that it is the ability to put our thoughts into words that can be communicated to others.

John le Carre
If a cat does something, we call it instinct; if we do the same thing, for the same reason, we call it intelligence.
Humans have existed only for the last 0.001 percent of cosmic time. All of which says that - unless the Homo sapiens brain is the one-and-only instance of cogitating machinery - nearly all the intelligence that's out there is beyond our level.

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
All different forms of human expression, art, science, are going to become expanded, by expanding our intelligence.
By the 2030s, the nonbiological portion of our intelligence will predominate.
