樓上樓下與高分低分不同

Dear Mr Leechard,

I feel hopeless and meaningless to read your articles about "promoting intelligence”. When I consider the clever people among my real life, they were all born to be that clever. They understand themselves are ignorant just because they are clever enough to notice their mistakes, but not suddenly inspired by any articles.

For example, can you imagine some “very not clever” people you know in your real life suddenly become intelligent after reading a magic article? Will a man score higher in IQ test right after he discovers he is ignorant?

It’s absolutely impossible. The fact is just that a man has IQ high enough to discover he’s ignorant, but not the converse.

Can any student readers here dare to say that, their academic results have a great improvement after being inspired by Leechard’s or 蘇格拉底’s writings? From my real-life experience, all top students were NOT inspired by any others’ writing to become top students.

The most important is hardware (and power supply). Software doesn’t help much…

Dear EY

似乎,你可能誤會了。

樓上樓下與高分低分不同,
而人是很不容易一夕覺悟的,但亦確有人可以。

所謂「承認無知」,亦即是「承認有樓上」而己。
但這一點,可能你要說得唇焦舌蔽,亦未能使人口服。
一個人能夠在十年之內明白此理:以李察的愚見認為,
他就是一個聰明人。許多人一輩子不明白,太可憐了。

許多才高八斗的聰明人,亦是一輩子的樓下人。

稍後有空,我希望能夠找到一份舊稿與你看。

至於人的hardware 可能不同。而人的 hardware
是多方面的。例如,游泳高手倘誕生在沙漠,就無用
武之地。

但操縱那Hardware 的能力,亦即是人的抉擇能力,
確是可能後天培養的。而所謂「後天」,不完全是
有人教,而是整個的文化氣質決定的:他能看到甚
麼書,能上到甚麼網,能聽到甚麼音樂,都是文化
氣質呢。

He must expose himself to a wider newer
perspective........and that is very very
important
