The more we drop our attachments and abandon our inner idols, the more we are filled with grief and loss and sadness. The whole universe will turn into an ocean of tears. As our heart empties itself of its idols, it sacrifices too its yearning and its longing, and even its love. You don’t feel you long anymore. You don’t even feel that you love anymore. There remains only the direct condition of being consumed by an ocean of hot tears.

Intelligence is also organic because it is creative. The computer cannot create something original; its creations are already implied in its programming, no matter how complex and adaptive the programming may be. The computer’s creations are nothing but the elaborations and combinations of what is already in its memory. A computer can never be original. But intelligence has the characteristic of being creative in a completely original way. Intelligence always has the capacity of shedding more light.
