Negligence and carelessness lead every human being to failure.
To be negligent is, as we would say, nec legere, “to not elect,” to surrender to the arms of failure.
Negligence is of the ego, and its opposite is intuition, which is of the Being. The ego can neither elect nor distinguish, but the Being can.
It is only by means of the living incarnation of the revolution of the dialectic that we will learn to “elect” in order not to have any more failures in life.
