I harbor the opinion that this may be in fact related to your work-rants.

Balance.

If you presume it creates a responsibility to others, you must remember that said responsibility cannot outweigh your responsibility to yourself.

I think about it very often myself.

What is it that you are contemplating?

Mainly:

Is high intelligence a form of nobility (as it were)?

If it is, then what are the responsibilities that it imposes?

Application of that intelligence?

Teaching and supporting others?
