J. Krishnamurti & David Bohm – Brockwood Park 1972 – Dialogue – On intelligence

Q: Thought is a material process. What is the relationship between that and intelligence?

Thought is mechanical, measurable, a movement in time. Is intelligence mechanical, in time?

Does intelligence use thought?

Thought is a pointer. Without intelligence the pointer has no value.

Politically, religiously and psychologically thought has created a world of tremendous contradiction and fragmentation.

Can life be guided by intelligence and lived in harmony?

The desire for intelligence has created the image of God.

Thought must be completely still for the awakening of intelligence. You come upon it when you see the whole.

The quality of a mind that sees the whole is not touched by thought. Therefore there is perception and insight.

This channel is managed by the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust​​, UK​, and by the Krishnamurti Foundation of America.

The role of the foundations was described by Krishnamurti when he said,​ ​’The foundations will see to it that these teachings are kept whole, are not distorted, are not made corrupt. They will not give rise to any sectarian spirit in their activities… nor create any kind of place of worship around the teachings or the person.​’​

We maintain extensive archives of Krishnamurti’s original works and all four Krishnamurti foundations are actively engaged in the publication of material in various forms.

Our videos contain thousands of subtitles in more than 25 languages, translated by volunteers from all over the world. If you would like to help us with translating subtitles, please contact us at digital@kfoundation.org
