The intelligence level I write to

I write to the intelligence level of a somwhat stupid but not very stupid academical person or to what I estimate people in the capital district of Finland in their early twenties would all or most understand about a subject that they are not much familiar with but that they are sincerely interested in. So I do not write to my own level of intelligence, but more like to the lower end of what I am able to communicate to. So my thoughts often have wide areas of applications, look quite simple but may be complex to think through all the roads I have thougt about them
I read the Chinese classic about learning masterful skill Tao-Te-Ching (Stephen Mitchell's translation) for years trying to learn teaching skills, so that I could teach the solution that I find to many others too, and that they would find those skills from themselves with the help of my teaching, instead of just reading robot like.

About how I learned good quality thinking as a child

My parents were very theoretically inclined, enthusiastic about science and math but not intelligent and not good at practical things. I always longed for concretical practical world, for practical things like in household tasks with children, gardening, life at the summer cottage, wondering at the beauty and amazing structures of nature, practical professions, physical work, sports, trade, maybe police's work. So I was keen at looking, very interested to see and experience things of the world, everyday life things with their multitude of characteristics, structures, practical uses, behaviour, feelings etc. And my mother was always interested in tiniest observations too since she was not so good at making observations herself, so I kind of learned to pay attention to things well when I looked at them, and to live ina  landscape of environement and life in it. So I learned practical common sense like objective thinking but not so much practical skills because my parents always wanted to take everything theoretically.

British aren't considered so very wise and they start school at the age of 5. Finns are wise and have wisdom and life. Finns start school at the age of 7. I read today about a famous old Finnish poet. He wanted to start school when he was 8 but was considered too young to start school until he was 9. His poetry is very wise indeed, and the old times give an impression of greater wisdom. Do Asians start something school like at very young age? Buddhism is described somewhat like one could describe one's own understanding about life and about how to live to someone who has studied only school like things starting at a young age. Years before school shoudl teach life skills and high capacity, reach high, so that when one starts school one's own understanding is kind of equal tyo things taught in school: one just knows them in addition. We has at least playing, painting, being read tales, doing practical things, discussing, going to places and doing things together, being outdoors and with the nature, some songs too.
If I remember right, I started piano lessons at the age of 7 when I started school too, since my mom thoguht that such is good for intelligence and wisdom.

How to reach for good quality

I think that my guest for better quality is important in learning new things and in keeping quality good and thoughts profound. When I do something with some quality, I do not think, well, this is enough, but often think how good the quality should ideally have been for my life and the society and the world to go well, spend a moment or two wondering what it would demand, what kind of extra job and mark for myself that I would some time in the future do that extra job while associating with a subject like this. So my quality does not deteriorate due to laziness as easily but neither do I get much extra work. Some maybe I read some interesting magazine articles for a half an hour in a month as a result of this or so, and think some things more thoroughly which for me goes quite quickly.
