the Fundamental

The fundamental is not characterized by intelligence
or stupidity in the ordinary sense.
Those who are obsessed with such appearances are the stupid,
while those wo are not are the intelligent.

So those who attain knowledge of the fundamental
do not pride themselves in being wise.
