Define "wisdom". How does it differ from intelligence?

  Wisdom suggests actions maximizing the values and aggregate qualities-of-living, of a specific population (generally considered to be humans in the present and future) over the course of a future light-cone. This "grandfathering", is the key difference I see between FAI and orgasmium replicating brains. Peak wisdom is the game-theoric highest outcome participants in a system can effect for themselves. Wisdom is prejudiced, but this permits it to avoid present actions which may compromise highly valuable potential futures.
