Arts & Sciences
The Intelligence of the Arts and Sciences is the intelligence of appreciation of essences of life, aimed at a deeper understanding of Life. Thus, it may also be called the intelligence of life.
This is an intelligence of concepts, ideas and logical reasoning, as well as appreciation and creation. A broad definition of this intelligence would include talent in any of the following : music, visual arts, drama, general science, psychology and philosophy.
Usually, all the above aspects of intelligence in the Arts and Sciences, would not all exist together. For example, good musicians may not necessarily be good at understanding concepts of sciences, neither would a scientist necessarily be talented or even interested in visual arts.
But as we mentioned earlier, this intelligence, encompassing both the arts and sciences, is the intelligence of Life, without a person. With this in mind, no matter which aspect of this intelligence somebody belong to, be it psychology or drama, he can generally be characterized by two attributes, comprehension and sensitivity.
Comprehension is the general ability to understand things around us, why things are done or happen a certain way. Ability to understand and reason out with ourselves the logic behind everything in life. This is commonly known as sciences.
Sensitivity is the ability to sense and feel particular feelings about life that cannot be proven. The arts require more of this. To feel the music flowing from within while playing it on an instrument is a similar characteristic of all famous musicians. The sensitivity to know another's thoughts and feelings in particular situations and circumstances is the basis of psychology.
