The world is filled with objects - small and copious or big and heavy - that need to be moved in order to maintain existence as we know it. You are surrounded by things that have been moved, both as components of themselves and as complete pieces. Perhaps they came from a farm, or maybe they rolled off a production line, or even off the garage table of a friend. But they were shifted from place to place, fighting gravity.

Despite this, we don't place much value in our society on people who move things. Even the engineers who design complicated production schemes owe something to the people who move things - those people are often the ones who see the inefficiencies and have devised systems to make moving those things a little easier. It's amazing how much muscle power can be saved with a simple handtruck or a dolly.

There are all different kinds of intelligence out there, and there is a special kind for people who move things. This is often not recognized as intelligence.
