Who you surround yourself with and who you "follow" and "listen" to is who you will assimilate into.
An open system with less intelligence around open/closed systems with more intelligence, the open system with less intelligence will increasingly become more intelligent.
Open systems are genius material. They developed a unique ability to assimilate, evolve and let go. This is why reading is paramount for open systems.
They must have the chemistry of words to evolve their lifestyle and belief systems.
It is painful to be open and evolve, but it hurts so good in the effective way of leading to longevity.
Geniuses with closed systems develop glitches and strange behaviors over time when there is too much conflict in their immune system from lack of effective release.
