-- Part 06: Seldon’s Secrets Series.
It is my pleasure, and my honor, as an elected member of the Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica [F.E.D.] General Council, and as a voting member of F.E.D., to share, with you, from time to time, as they are approved for public release, by the F.E.D. General Council, key excerpts from the internal writings, and from the internal sayings, of our co-founder, Karl Seldon.
The sixth release in this new such series is posted below [Some E.D. standard edits have been applied, in the version presented below, by the editors of the F.E.D. Special Council for the Encyclopedia, to the direct transcript of our co-founder’s discourse].
In this 6th installment, Seldon describes his view of the primary value of human genius.
“In my view, a brilliant human mind would be of little value if employed solely to “show off”, to awe others, for the narcissistic self-gratification of its “owner” alone.”
“A brilliant mind is a blessing, even to its “owner”, only if – and even if only anonymously or pseudonymously, e.g., to avoid media manipulations – it is applied to produce benefits for other human beings, e.g., to what Marx called “universal labor”, including producing benefits for human beings not yet born; for human beings yet to come.”
