Makes you wonder about the intelligence of today's scientific community.
Most "scientist" of today, are just scholars, and not researchers, they just blindly cite another persons work (that normally just cited another one previous work,), instead of doing the research themselves.
In today's world penicillin would have never being discovered, as its discovery was the result of a laboratory mistake, and thus they would have thrown the cultive in the garbage instead of wondering why the fungus was killing the bacteria.
My guess i that too much scholarly, makes you think more rigidly. And since genius is seeing what all people have seeing before and from it thinking what no one have tough before, it makes you more intelligent, but less wise.
