>> Your own supposite knowledge of the past and from your own intellectual understanding doesn't allow you to see the truth.
Both yes and no.
Supposedly there are "ordinary" people who are not intelligent and do not know anything much. They are the "mass". Anybody who poses as a leader
can feed any "program" into them that they will follow.
Intelligent people, people who do have a "better processor" do have more knowledge ( information ) stuffed into them and can logically analyze a
situation, with a supposedly better outcome then normal people. Yet the outcome would be far from perfect, as they are trying to model the future by
logically analyzing the past.
And yes, in lots of cases their incomplete or inaccurate information, that was stuffed into them, limits them from seeing the Truth or anything that
they'd consider impossible.
I remember how one doctor's face looked like when a healer made him sense his energy ( that the doctor was sure "could not exist, because could
exist never" ).
So an ordinary person looks at water and has no idea of what it is.
An intelligent person looks at water and knows that it is H2O, because his school teacher told him it is so. This is the way of learning the world
from the experience of others.
And there, supposedly, are people who see the world in reality, see the Truth, who had cleared their mind from such "facts" ( water is H2O and
period ) and opened certain powers with which they can, for example, look into water the "see" its molecules.

An interesting quote I've already posted here a few times.
First way - "IMITATION".
This way is the easiest and sweetest... in the beginning. But difficult and bitter in the end. Walking this way one does not have to work with his
sole. He has to be as everybody, act as everybody, live as everybody. But in the old age - bitterness, repentance and regret...
On this way one does not have to think, all he's got to do is follow his basic wills and instincts.
This is the way of the "sleeping". This is learning the world by repeating the experience of others, by imitating the ones before you.
"Time will come when human would be able, by the use of an object, to lift another object to the stars and back ( to Mars, in our case ) , and
further, through 18 thousand worlds to God. ( not sure if this should be understood literally )
Time will come when human would be able, by the use of an object, to lift himself to the stars and back ( in our case - to the moon ) , and further,
through 18 thousand worlds to God, to face him in person.
But this will happen only when the time comes. This time might come in 30 breathes or in 30 thousand years. But this is when the time comes and your
life might be not enough for waiting.
On this way you can receive, get, collect knowledge and pass it to other people. You can leave a trace in the history of mankind and your experience
of going this way.�
Second way - "The way of the STATE"
The old book says �Remember! If you do not have time to wait thousands of years and you want to face the Creator during your lifetime and dissolve
in his great and immense light, you must follow the path of self-knowledge.
Going the path of self-knowledge, revealing your hidden powers, you would be able, with the will of your spirit, to lift another object to the stars
and back, and further, through 18 thousand worlds to God. Or you would be able, with the will of your spirit, to lift yourself to the stars and back,
and further, through 18 thousand worlds to God.
On this way you will learn hate, passing into compassion to people.
Through compassion you will understand love.
After becoming rich, you will understand the essence of wealth and misery.
You will understand the essence of force and weakness.
You will learn and will understand validity.
You will learn the pain of being alone, remaining among many people.
You will understand happiness and pain simultaneously, by opening your true perception of this world and seeing people they way they really are.
Truth can not be transferred, truth can only be understood.
On the way of imitation, obtaining easy knowledge, your personality disappears, leaving only the form, dissolved in the crowd. It is very hard to
find, understand truth on this way.
The way of the state is the way to the perfect human.
Everybody going this way can understand truth.
Its deficiency consists in the fact that force, ability, love, might and all possibilities, achieved on the way to truth, can not be transmitted,
transfered to others.
In the transmitting, being reflected in the consciousness of another person, truth perishes.
Task of that going this way - to find, recognize, open the perfect person and to transmit relay race."
