Many people today confuse intelligence with technology - "the ancient Egyptians had no electricity, computers, heavy machinery or plastics, therefore they must have been less intelligent than we are today".

In fact the reverse is true. It takes massive intelligence to organise building programmes such as those undertaken in ancient Egypt using very rudimentary technology; nobody else has ever constructed a temple complex like that of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahari, or that of Ramesses II at Abu Simbel, or the Great pyramids of Giza.

The organisation, planning, infrastructure and support services for these projects and very many more indicate that the ancient Egyptians were exactly as intelligent as we are today - perhaps more so. We rely so much on time saving devices, electronic gadgets and electronic entertainment that we have no motivation to use our intelligence wisely.
