human intelligence has a limit, it can always fail, big multinational corporations, they make big computer programs, they put… one was recently put out, then after putting it out for two weeks they have to take it back, bugs, not the ones that crawl out… had so many years and they dint foresee, this is the material situation, that our intelligence, no matter how developed it is, just like Hiranyakasipu, he had tried to figure everything out but it never comes up to the intelligence of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, because our intelligence is the part of fraction of His intelligence.
So the fraction can never equal the whole, by definition the fraction has to be less than the whole. So by definition we are, we are just the spark, a part of Krishna, therefore we can never equal the whole, but if we are in surrendered to Him, if we are in complete harmony with Him then we can get the unlimited potency coming through us, but if we try to compete with Krishna off course we will lose. So in this material world people are trying to compete with Krishna’s external energy and they are getting defeated, what to speak of those who want to directly compete with Krishna, their situation is very precarious.
