Thought 181: Intellect is not Intelligence

It amuses me how the media portrays Stephen Hawking as being one of the most intelligent people on the planet. 

They fail to see that intellect alone, however great, is not the same as intelligence which includes creative aptitudes as well as logical faculties. 

And even intelligence is still not the same as being enlightened, even though a modicum of intelligence is arguably a necessary psychological component for enlightenment to manifest.
