Third Order Intelligence frees us from identifying with the instincts of our genetic hard-wiring
and frees us from identifying with the conditioning and beliefs of our enculturated programming.
Third Order Intelligence is the freedom from the clasp of these two building blocks from which it emerges.
Third Order Intelligence uses all functions in our brain in an integrated manner. Using all the functions of one’s brain in an integrated manner returns us to a state of balance and equilibrium like First Order Intelligence, but one that we now manage consciously. Synthesizing nature and nurture in a proper balance empowers a relationship with reality – as evidenced in our relationships with ourselves, with others, and with the world of nature.
“To be what we are,
and to become what we are capable of becoming,
is the only end of life.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
