It all depends upon how intelligence or smartness is defined. If you define being smart as acquiring ‘materialistic’ knowledge from the world around or scoring top in some tests, then sorry it will be a big No! If you define being smart as financially successful, then also a big No! But, the people who experience and dive deep into who they really are, are the ones who definitely see the world differently and have a different perspective for life and even the ‘universe’ as a whole.
One of the biggest mysteries is of the great Indian Mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. According to Hardy and his colleagues he didn’t have any proof for the mathematical equations which he came up with and he was unable to provide solutions in the way they wanted him to prove. But he was right, right? We accepted many of his formulas, some of which are now directly applied in the field of astrophysics.
Many such examples can be found in history and are still present around us, it’s just our mere belief and lack of understanding that we think that only the ‘smart’ can see the world differently.
