I'm combining two things into one here: (1) How does over-sleep and lack of sleep affect the mind? Concerning lack of sleep I'm sort of wondering if the conscious mind and subconscious can work together so to speak? The reason being is one day I was doing notes in class. I was taking notes and then all of a sudden I sort of half fell asleep. I was thinking about things as if I wasnt doing anything else and then all of a sudden I kind of woke up and looked up and my notes were almost finished. (2) Wisdom is a character trait that works with intelligence and allows one to utilize its full potential. I see people with skills in math and other subjects that are amazing. Yet they throw them away like nothing. However there are people with lower abilities that try and do better. I'm just wondering is wisdom an acquired trait from experience. Or is it rather based on intelligence itself and when someone is seemingly smarter the wiser person in reality has a higher capacity of learning and such. Also thanks to the people on this forum. It's a gold-mine of knowledge for a curious person like myself.
