People who consider themselves 'mature' have often discarded solutions to problems to make way for their mental comfort. Mature people are therefore shlocks. The antonym for shlock is thinker. A thinker is a far higher level of being than a lowly (albeit rich and influential) shlock. Thinkers care about intelligence and compassion whereas shlocks do not. Thinkers are advised to isolate themselves away from shlocks for the welfare of future generations, no matter how few their numbers and how lonely the isolation. Turning to the comfort of maturity is weak failure when perfection is nowhere near half way reached.
