High IQ Societies for Outsiders

November 24, 2016

Mensa, Triple Nine Society, Prometheus; these are not secret societies inhabited by the special elect, but open non profit organizations with select/private membership. By non profit, think of the status the Tea Party attempted to get in order for massive donations to come in, which the IRS blocked, sabotaged, and use to harass the donors and organizers in a specially targeted act before the 2012 elections in the USA.

These are non profit but also non political alliances and loose societies. They function with a email list, chapters (like local churches in the Southern Baptists), as well as a magazine or journal (like peer review journals and scholarly products). While studying this subject, as an adjunct or tangent to the 2400 scored SAT vs the older 1600 scored SAT, I found an interesting article that was published in one of these aforementioned journals, concerning scholarship on high IQ individuals.

Much of the conclusions tend to line up with what I have already discovered on my own, and deduced using my own methods. It’s nice to see someone who can do the same, even though we exist on different time-space coordinate. I’m not a member of Mensa nor are my gifts quantified by mental energy or standardized testing. What they term the gifted, those below or above IQ 150, qualifies for about 2+-% of humanity. The upper part that is. I am merely above average, during early tests showed me in the 90-95% more or less on various IQ related tests. I do not have the mental energy or inherent abilities of the prodigies or geniuses, yet I am high enough in the echelon hierarchy to understand them as well as “rotate down” higher level material to my level, which is digestible by a far larger proportion of humans. It’s not a method I came up with, but something I discovered when looking at various martial arts teaching methodologies online. Some instructors had a natural or innate ability to “rotate down” material they understand to verbal-linguistics.

To give a minor example, the statistical inferences and methods used by Grady is easy to understand. Yet I came to the same conclusion he did, using my own methods, the ability to analyze human behavior and infer the cause of it. In this specific case, looking at autism and how society has treated them, easily allowed me to infer the conclusion that many of those high level savant talents are malformed and turned to self destructive tendencies by the idiocy or corruption of human society. Humans don’t understand idiot savants, and as a result those with autism, even the higher functioning Asperger’s, become less and less capable of functioning in normal society. This distorts and destroys their ability to use their gifts, which causes a correlative decrease in their own stability and potential growth. But before the “autistic” label came out and drugs were used to treat them, there were individuals that had several savant level abilities who did conform well to society, and even managed to learn enough languages to explain his phenomenon to the world via a book. As Grady supplied, it is not high IQ or the kind/level of gifts which corrupt or damage humans, it is the environment they are around and how they manage to manipulate/control their own abilities to adapt to that environment.

On the other hand, I do understand personally what the High IQ societies speak of when comparing themselves to the rest of humanity. There is indeed a distance, between people who can understand these concepts and people like Newton who had to come up with calculus to even write in mathematics what he was seeing with gravity laws. Trying to explain my original hypothesis and conclusions, which often turn out to be correct to the chagrin of the modern scientific consensus quo, to the rest of humanity is pretty much pointless. Either they’ll figure it out on their own, or they will not. Explaining things is useless for people who cannot form the ideas on their own initiative.

As for Socrates, he was also a hoplite citizen warrior, so intelligence is probably not merely mental. It is also spiritual and physical. I do agree with the idea that only the highest of humanity tend to have the talent and will to develop that talent, which pulls the rest of humanity forward in knowledge and progress. But those individuals are the worst ones to lead or guide humans on that path, they can only carve a new one. The IQ difference between a leader and its followers can only accommodate about 30 points of difference, which is something else I’ve also witnessed. Feudalism and delegation starts sounding better and better. The idea of a purely centralized totalitarian system for the governing of humans only works when they reduce all humans to livestock or make “equal” humanity’s talents/gifts. It is a rather moronic idea, as expected of New Eden globalists and utopians. Other than a God level power, it’s impractical, if not impossible.

There still remain, however, four adjustment problems that continue to perplex the gifted throughout their lives, two applying to all levels of giftedness, and two applying almost exclusively to the exceptionally gifted–i.e. those with childhood IQs above 170, or adult Concept Mastery test (T) scores above 155.
One of the problems faced by all gifted persons is learning to focus their efforts for prolonged periods of time. Since so much comes easily to them, they may never acquire the self-discipline necessary to use their gifts to the fullest. Hollingworth describes how the habit begins.
Where the gifted child drifts in the school unrecognized, working chronically below his capacity (even though young for his grade), he receives daily practice in habits of idleness and daydreaming. His abilities never receive the stimulus of genuine challenge, and the situation tends to form in him the expectation of an effortless existence [3, p. 258].
But if the “average” gifted child tends to acquire bad adjustment habits in the ordinary schoolroom, the exceptionally gifted have even more problems. Hollingworth continues:
Children with IQs up to 150 get along in the ordinary course of school life quite well, achieving excellent marks without serious effort. But children above this mental status become almost intolerably bored with school work if kept in lockstep with unselected pupils of their own age. Children who rise above 170 IQ are liable to regard school with indifference or with positive dislike, for they find nothing in the work to absorb their interest. This condition of affairs, coupled with the supervision of unseeing and unsympathetic teachers, has sometimes led even to truancy on the part of gifted children [3, p. 258].
A second adjustment problem faced by all gifted persons is due to their uncommon versatility. Hollingworth says:
“Another problem of development with reference to occupation grows out of the versatility of these children. So far from being one-sided in ability and interest, they are typically capable of so many different kinds of success that they may have difficulty in confining themselves to a reasonable number of enterprises. Some of them are lost to usefulness through spreading their available time and energy over such a wide array of projects that nothing can be finished or done perfectly. After all, time and space are limited for the gifted as for others, and the life-span is probably not much longer for them than for others. A choice must be made among the numerous possibilities, since modern life calls for specialization” [3, p. 259].
A third problem faced by the gifted is learning to suffer fools gladly. Hollingworth notes:
A lesson which many gifted persons never learn as long as they live is that human beings in general are inherently very different from themselves in thought, in action, in general intention, and in interests. Many a reformer has died at the hands of a mob which he was trying to improve in the belief that other human beings can and should enjoy what he enjoys. This is one of the most painful and difficult lessons that each gifted child must learn, if personal development is to proceed successfully. It is more necessary that this be learned than that any school subject be mastered. Failure to learn how to tolerate in a reasonable fashion the foolishness of others leads to bitterness, disillusionment, and misanthropy [3, p. 259].
The single greatest adjustment problem faced by the gifted, however, is their tendency to become isolated from the rest of humanity. This problem is especially acute among the exceptionally gifted. Hollingworth says:

1, he gets it. 2, he also gets it. 3, yes he gets it.

Our senpai gets it.

Aldous Huxley once wrote:
Perhaps men of genius are the only true men. In all the history of the race there have been only a few thousand real men. And the rest of us–what are we? Teachable animals. Without the help of the real man, we should have found out almost nothing at all. Almost all the ideas with which we are familiar could never have occurred to minds like ours. Plant the seeds there and they will grow; but our minds could never spontaneously have generated them [4, p. 2242].

Strangely, another senpai that is usually mentioned in the political dystopian context, gets quoted. If he is that “Huxley”, of course, then that would be an interesting tie in. Right now I just realized I’m rotating Japanese sentence structures and memes down to English. One of the after effects of thinking with two language cores at the same time, there’s a timing issue just as there is with dual core first gen cpus. For someone that learned latin at 3-6 years of age, how many language cores would that ‘human’ be capable of using at age 25?

Another off hand theory concerns modernish neurological brain states or models. One model, the atheist materialist ones, has it that the brain creates and is the origin of consciousness, will, and personality. The other model, the half spiritualist model or quantum physics model, is advocated by Penrose (if I recall correctly) and others who claim that the brain is merely a filter, a radio, that captures signals from this plane of existence (4 dimensional space time) so that the soul (in another dimension) can manipulate and be manipulated by events on this plane or dimension. This other plane of existence would house the soul or the Quantum data form.

Now in light of that relatively new theory, due to the intersection of quantum physics with Christian supernatural theology and neurological brain models, how would one place the High IQ individuals into this paradigm?

It’s something that statistical analysis, logic, mathematical models, which high IQ individuals are known to excel in, comes face to face with other elements that they aren’t well known for. In other words, there’s a problem with using logic or statistics to observe God or divine level entities. One theory even has God planning to raise up humanity to the level of divine beings, gods or angels, who are as perfect in body as in intellect and heart. Can a human with an IQ of 250 accomplish the same? Can they even attempt to formulate such a plan let alone acquire the resources to implement it? Thus is the difference between the highest of human minds compared against the Most High, the most wise and intelligent, as claimed in human theology. Not a problem I want to try solving. Above my paygrade. Make it somebody else’s problem. Raise the level of humanity? The reply from many high IQ society members would be, “why would anyone want to raise livestock to the level of humans” or something of that nature. Beware the Watchers though.

Where Scott Sonnon and TacFit are now

February 20, 2016


These are the principles intro.

That would be an example of application.

I think I first heard about TacFit, from some website or something, around 2010. Cannot pin it down, it was definitely after Target Focus Training, and probably a reference from their social/business circle.

Where hatred of the Jews came from

January 23, 2016

This was an interesting question, which I had thought about for some months now.
http://neoneocon.com/2016/01/19/hitler-the-racial-anarchist/
Where anti-Semitism comes from is a puzzle. Most of the accusations against Jews seem, to me, to be after the fact. First, the anti-Semitic believer hates Jews and then takes up or makes up falsehoods to support the hate…..

So where did it start? Why?– Richard Aubrey

From my research, it goes back to Islamic slave raids, where Italian/Lombardian merchant patriarchs and Jews in Europe and the ME, helped in the selling of European slaves to Islamic Caliphs and harems.

Islam had a direct market for slaves, they would go raid for them directly. Then there was a secondary market, economic, where slaves in general were sold, to the highest bidder.

Europe’s DNA was built upon hatred and fear of Islam, and to a lesser extent the Vikings. The Vikings mellowed out pretty soon in Normandy, and converted to Christianity soon afterwards, by around 1000 AD.

Islam was significantly more virulent and aggressive in expansion.

Humans tend to fear foreign enemies, and begin hating them. But it was easier to develop a genetic hatred of Jews, who they could touch and kill, than to take on the Islamic war machine, which they could not even touch. They could only huddle in their fortified baronies and pray.

That’s my theory and research results, at least. Some of it is explained by epigenetics as well.

  1. relating to or denoting a family of languages that includes Hebrew, Arabic, and Aramaic and certain ancient languages such as Phoenician and Akkadian, constituting the main subgroup of the Afro-Asiatic family.
  2. relating to the peoples who speak the Semitic languages, especially Hebrew and Arabic.
    A question in the future is why anti Semitism is only used for the Jews, when in fact that also includes the Arabs too. The Arabs and Muslims have figured this out, but the Westerners only talk about the Jews, as if the only Semitic people are the Jews. That’s why Arabs and Muslims often claim they aren’t anti Semitic. They don’t hate themselves, they just hate the Jews.

Distributed networking

August 14, 2014

This is a pretty strange occurrence. I had heard of BitCoin before, of course, but I hadn’t quite connected all the dots yet.

When I was looking around for a new Geforce or Radeon graphics external (2 slots isn’t really a card any more), I picked up some fun reading.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-r9-270-review-benchmarks,3669.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptocurrency

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin

http://bitcoinminer.com/

That’s quite a bit of reading. The executive summary would be thus. Like crowd sourced produced games such as Minecraft (a java game about mining and building), digital currencies rely on computing power (Minecraft was produced using more of a conventional funding scheme from distributed users via a centralized interface and didn’t rely on distributed computing) and distributed networks (the basis of the internet itself) to guarantee security and authenticity. Although like various other simulated universes, there are ways to crack/hack/steal from the stupid to the smart. This is compared to the United States Regime that uses taxes to bank roll evil by sharing the load across 330 million people, so few people ever notice it. This is done via centralized fiat and digital currency, as well as various other things in the Leftist alliance. A simulated free economy, or just a real free economy, tends to burden the dumb and reckless risk takers with most of the losses.

AI (artificial intelligence) will most likely come from distributed networks in the future, not supercomputer cooled laboratories funded by centralized authorities. If one ever did come out of that, it would be psychotic and bent on enslaving humanity, essentially due to how it was created or raised. Although it would be more accurate to call the products of random luck HI or hyper aware intelligences, happenstance intelligence even.

Strangely enough, it was reading about all the money laundering and black market schemes and thefts that convinced me that this was real and wasn’t just an internet fad (like Obamacare). Generally whenever a new frontier is tapped, all the thugs, crooks, and risk taking gamblers get there first. And they got there fast.

Oh, here’s the source time history for the various Geforce and Radeon generations.

I have also heard of the game engine Unity, that uses a similar distributed network of suppliers and consumers.

New Age of Do it Yourself Healthcare

June 1, 2014

http://askmarion.wordpress.com/2014/05/28/the-ad-add-adhd-autism-aging-inflammation-and-nutrition-connection/#comment-42912

I call it New Age, but in reality it is pretty Ancient if you look at Chinese chi gong.

This is more like returning to our roots than hippie weed smoking. Although I must say, I have yet to verify the contents of that article, so do your own research. As usual, think for yourself, by yourself. Voting not included.

Choice: How does it create solutions?

December 2, 2013

http://groupees.com/

This is something I found a few months ago. I imagine the bundling works much the same way as cable channels, where they sell advertisement time based on the slogan that a company has access to XYZ number of viewers. However, unlike cable channels, you get to pay for what you like instead of paying cable networks for the ability to sell you to advertisement campaigns.

Centralized authority creates solutions by making sure people can do A and not do Z. Individual choice creates solutions by exploring all things in life minus the path chosen by authorities.

Even though I avoid social media like the plague, their use of FB and free social networks is a non-coercive ability to spread the word amongst potential buyers and sellers. Instead of making someone buy a cable package of 500 billion channels with nothing good or virtuous on them, so that you pay for the privilege of advertisers sending you commercials, the package is built and then people come and buy it if they wish. Imagine if cable only offered you 2 channels which you wanted to watch and nothing else, at 3% of the monthly price.

In a few generations, successful work from the ground up using free will, ultimately ends up as an authority, a centralized institution. But all things that live will die, so there’s no point refusing to live in the now just because of the future.

The Magic Gaze of Man and the Domestication of Dogs

September 21, 2010

Two pieces, domestication of dogs and the magic gaze of man, put together a complex and thorough history of human-animal relationships.

For cave paintings, form followed from function. The function of how animals behaved were put to artistic work by paint and hand. It served the purpose of educating new hunters and perhaps served as a great backdrop for stories and imagination. To imagine how to hunt well while in winter and then applying the new thoughts in the spring. Such did humans ascend the ladder of creation.
