    If all you ever do is think, then your ability to think gets better (and then your brain fizzles out and you get alzheimer's at age 50).

    In other words: intellect determines potential. Practice/attention determines ability.
    That's kind of the way I always saw it. Ability can improve intelligence and vice versa; they support one another in a symbiotic relationship.
