      Hi @gundersaur,

      This is an interesting question. I’ll start by saying that “clever” is a matter of opinion. But even if you do consider humans to be clever we are not perfect and will mistake, we are all still learning and will not get things right every time. We also have an element of freewill and can chose to do things that you may consider stupid. However, as with cleverness, stupidity is also open to debate…

      I’m sorry about the wafflyness of that!

      Hope it helps a little
