Intelligence, over a certain level, does not translate into success, in the monetary social sense.
I would think that it hinders it.

The first that comes to mind is Mozart. He was trained in music from a very young age and was also composing from a very young age.

He died in his thirties and was buried in a mass grave. His body was limed. None of his children survived and he has no living descendents.

The "mainstream" associated intellect with social success. They can't imagine any other reason to have a mind if it is not to be liked or to be famous or to be wealthy or powerful.

The mainstream are retards.

Kaczynski's "problem" is not found in his actions, but in his reasoning.
Many think of killing but how many follow through with it despite the cost/benefit possibilities?

He thought he could change things, but not only this, he wanted to change things.
He was naive.
He believed that living in the woods would save him from the system or from the very technologies it employed and he despised.

Perhaps exploring how intelligence, above and beyond a certain level, actually inhibits success, or directs it towards behaviors and activities which have nothing to do with the mainstream bullshit.
Also, an additional factor to be considered is the role leisure plays in all of this.

Little girl, this is the kind of shit your kind falls upon to evade.

How does anyone know what anyone is thinking?
He watches the others actions, connects them with the actions he has experienced personally or has conducted himself, and he deduces.

How do you know a dog will not bite you?
How do you assume that it will not? are you ever absolutely sure?

When I see a cow shitting in the fields I assume her intestines are full and that she's eaten in the not so distant past. I do not require an ex-ray or mind-reading, you simple, simply bufoon.

No shit.

He ran the risk of getting caught, clearly... I don't think he was ever naive about it. The worse that could happen is he could get jailed for life or executed. He already felt jailed and dead so what did it really matter....
in other words he was an idealist. He wished to a martyr himself for humanity; he wanted to make a point.

Yes, he was a bit off.
Anyone who wishes to sacrifice himself for animals, or thinks that morons will get his point or be overly affected by it, has got to have a few loose screws up there.

Let's compare the Unabomber to a cow shitting in a field. Why not?
Yes, shall we?

Or is he some demi-god or an alien?

Both act in accordance to their will.
Both exhibit their will even when they are trying to hide it.
Both their minds can be evaluated after-the-fact, by analyzing their actions.

Now return to being cute and adorable to hide how simple you are.

Yes, and so the inherited conditioning (nature) is applied real-time, (nurture) and it results in genius or stupidity or, most often, in mediocrity.

Now, for me, genius also entails elements of courage and the element of near destruction, as the sensitive mind also risks madness or being broken by its own nature coming into contact with a chaotic and threatening world.

The more you see and the more you understand, all the more you are exposing yourself to pain/suffering and the anxiety associated with the unknown.

Did I say "escape"?
I suppose thinking in degrees requires a learning process.
I'm forced to offer disclaimers with every word I use....because language implies absolutes.

Decrease...not escape.
But not even this...it has to do with tolerance.

Quote :
"In pre-revolutionary Russia, if a child from a noble family couldn’t speak three-four languages by the age of five or six, it was a shame to take him out. Then in school Latin and ancient Greek were added to those. So five-six languages were a standard package for an educated youth back in 19th-century Russia,” Semenovich said…"
