Meditation on Intelligence

Statement 1: The sole usefullness (yes, there is one) of intelligence is to attain knowledge.
Statement 2: The fact that we are intelligent, implies that we lack knowledge.
Statement 3: Without a foundation, the house falls down in the wind. With a poor foundation, the house falls down in a storm. With a good foundation the house falls down in an earthquake. With the best foundation, the house will stand up to everything the earth (and all it contains) has to offer.

Meditation on 1: Does a man work out a problem in order to get the answer?
Meditation on 2: If he already knew the answer, and understood how to get it, would he need his intelligence?
Meditation on 3: Does your way of life have a foundation? How does it hold up when it goes against the earth?
