Intelligence is just one of many factors in who we are.  I dont have any doubts about my intelligence because Im a member of Mensa, with an avg IQ score of 135, and have even served as a National Coordinator of the Veterans Special Interest Group.

Sanity, well thats somethings else.  I know from working psych cases as a disability rep that everyone has everything in the book, its just a matter of how much.  For instance if you are going to be flying through the air at 500 mph in a metal cylinder at 35,000 ft, you should have some concern for your safety, but if you cant get on the plane thats clinical anxiety.

Firstly, you have to stick to what has been proven to you, and then what you can prove to others.

I cant say what is or isnt, that is for each of us to decide in our own reality.  I can only swear that what I have said I experienced is what I experienced.

132 on the Stanford Binnet, or a score in the top 2% of a recognized intelligence test.  There are quite a few. 

I got in on my military admissions test, General Classification Test.  Mensa required a score of 68.  I had three scores, 66, 68, and 72, from different times, so two of them were qualifying.

Who pulls the plug??
I was almost there ... the sense of vast space and emptiness .... no thing
It wasn't darkness and it wasn't light ... just a feeling of space ... then I wake up
Damn, who stops the dream when the dream just starts to get good??
