Intelligent or Distressed

In our lives we have always attempted, in making important decisions, to distinguish between “good” and “bad,” between “correct” and “incorrect,” between “honorable” and “dishonorable.” These and many similar distinctions have been attempts to make a general distinction. Perhaps the general distinction we have been seeking could be well made by calling it the distinction between “an action that is arising out of intelligent thinking” and “an action that is arising out of the influence of distress patterns and misinformation.”
