We don’t know when smartness, overawing us, became the only personal trait that we are aware of. Instead of being unique, everyone tries to dress smartly, talk smartly and text smartly with a sleek smartphone. In a glimpse, we live on a smart planet, which is located in the center of the universe, in case you don’t think of it this way yet.

Oh, and what about thinking?

Well, that is the dilemma. Rather than exciting our fellows to even think smartly, let’s take a break and look around to see what smartness, emerging from the brilliant dawn of the intelligent era, has driven us to.

In a word: uniformity.

Hm. Where are our diverse personalities if smartness has not yet disguised as a cellphone and eaten them up?


Don’t I sound like a smartass?
