How Smart Are We?

We humans are akin to naked mole rats that recently made a quantum leap in evolution, waking up one morning to discover that they have sight. At our best, we are mostly blind to the universe we live in. At our worst we are blinded by our own lack of knowledge and skills in many areas, resulting in a grand overestimation of our own competence.
