This is because we perceive in gestalts.

We can see no further. And it makes no sense to see any further because in a gestalt we see everything that is.

And this is true of all gestalts.

And if by some magic we were able to become more intelligent, we would still only be able to see all there is. After all, there is nothing else.
being more intelligent than others has benefits that aren't gestalts.
