Stupidity is not hereditary. Stupidity will overcome us the moment we stop thinking. That is why education should be the main priority of every thinking human being. One thing that makes us actively develop our thinking is reading. Whether paper or digital, books offer a fascinating opportunity to talk to their authors no matter where we are in the world or time. They allow us to confront our ideas and opinions with the most amazing brains that ever walked the Earth.

The meaning of life is not complex. The meaning of life lies in the fact that we are here for the second time. The level of contiguity and our ability to apply knowledge in our society are what makes us human in a sense of Homo Sapiens.
If it was not for information passed from previous generations we would still be roaring in the woods and picking berries. Without this continuity of information that we pass on to our children, primitive instincts would overcome us and force our return to the animal world.

Intelligence comes from creative thinking. And books play an important part in its development. Human society and individuals that do not consider reading and education to be a priority are on their way to extinction. The question is where on that way we are.
