Dr. Henrotte: "There is a problem with people like me, in our civilization and especially in our profession. We make too much use of our ... intellect."
Osho: "No one can use his intellect too much. It is such a great force, with so much potentiality that you cannot use it too much. Not only too much, we never even use it totally - never. Ordinarily, we do not use more than 10 to 15% of the total potentiality. Another thing, when you do intellectual work, it does not necessarily mean you are using your intelligence. Intellectual work too, is mechanical. It does not require any intelligence at all!. Once you get the know-how, no intelligence is required at all. Then the mind works just like a computer.
The real problem is, not the use of too much of intelligence, but the non-use of emotion. Emotion is completely discarded in our civilization and the balance is lost. Our whole civilization is anti-emotional."
