Id agree intelligence was in place before the accumulatio of "knowledge"
and "wisdom", however im loathe to say that intelligence has not
continued to develop over the last half a million, fifty thousand,or ten
years. evolution is an ongoing process, and the structures, and
pressures, and paradigms of the agricultural and industrial revolutions,
as well as teh current information age revolution, put evolutionary
pressurse which shape intelligence, as well as widom and knowledge.
