The IQ Cult

Perhaps you have seen the IQ map:

There are a few going around - none of them accurate or meaningful when it comes to small populations (like a sample of 1).

"In our 2010 study, we not only found a very strong relationship between levels of infectious disease and IQ, but controlling for the effects of education, national wealth, temperature, and distance from sub-Saharan Africa, infectious disease emerged as the best predictor of the bunch. A recent study by Christopher Hassall and Thomas Sherratt repeated our analysis using more sophisticated statistical methods, and concluded that infectious disease may be the only really important predictor of average national IQ."

The above is a nurture argument (e.g. environment is a determiner). THIS is a nature argument - the claim that "race" is a factor.

The infamous sentence, found in the Guinness Book, from circa 1984 to 1989, reads:
“The highest childhood score has been achieved by Marilyn Mach vos Savant who as a 10-year-old achieved a ceiling score for 23-year-olds thus giving her an IQ of 228.”
The actual IQ she received on this test was 132.

"Keith Raniere’s devoted followers say he is one of the smartest and most ethical people alive. They describe him as a soft-spoken, humble genius who can diagnose societal ills with remarkable clarity. They say his teachings as an inspirational executive coach can empower some of the most successful people in the world to attain ever higher levels of status and money. Why, his program can even cure ailments like diabetes and scoliosis."

"What is intelligence? The definition I like is that intelligence is "the ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations ... also : the skilled use of reason." I have heard some people misuse the word smart to mean knowledgeable. That is like confusing velocity with distance. That one can lead to the other does not mean that they are the same thing."

In short, it is unlikely you or I will ever meet -as in over a hand shake- anyone with an IQ above 145. Even with an IQ of 91 (a HOAX), "W" fell into the normal range. He was above the cusp of 85 - mild retardation. Bush wasn't a retard, he is a republican (painted with the same broad stroke of a brush).

Besides, it not retarded politicians we should worry about in the United States, it's gullible voters (e.g. the GOP voting base).

Founding Father Thomas Jefferson understood how abusive Republicans could succeed, if only they kept the population unenlightened, or in street vernacular blind, dumb, and stupid. Jefferson said, “I know no safe depositary of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of power.”

A healthy baby - born of healthy stock - with correct nutrition and intellectual stimulation should have an IQ of about 140. Since it is rare for such an offspring to be born (nature) into an environment free of contaminants of ingestion - both nutritional and intellectual - the average IQ has been in decline since World War Two. Thus, warfare of any kind (including HATE TALK RADIO) is detrimental to the entire human species.

Only Change is constant

Once upon a time (1977)

There were a LOT of people (e.g. "men") who wanted to identify with Bruce Jenner. He became an icon of 'the winning man.'

I suspect a lot of jocks are closeted gays but I am hardly going to go out and do a survey of jocks (or catholic priests)...

Throughout history, 10% to 20% of the population has been homosexual. That 15% +/- 2.5% is a normal condition - normalized except for the backward thinking of feudalists.

So, besides HOMO... add evolution and the bible thumpers go into arrhythmia.

So, from 1976 to 2015, things have changed.

"The Greek word "homoioma" [likeness] plays an important role in... expressing both the "divinity" and the humanity of the Son of God."

Bible thumping MEN want to be more god-like than goddess-like.

As for Hermaphroditos, (The Sleeping Hermaphrodite), Roman, A.D. 100–200, let's not go there.

The gods made man(kind) in their own images and our limitations are perceptive.

So what Bruce Jenner succeeded in doing is this: he woke up a few of the sleeping.

It's just another work of (performance) art collecting its finishing touches.

Is THIS clear? Is THAT clear?

There are no clears.

You know the game:

The human race is infested with body cooties (call 'e. THE tens).

And, for only $500,000, I know someone, now diseased (and de-cisted), who will 'clear you' of your body cooties.

A church who has Mr. Potato Head as it's leader!

O.K. It's Mr. Tomatoes' Head - my bad.

At least his guru:

was on a record cover.

and mentioned in a few books:

with an INTRO by RAW!

And Bare-faces messiah a PDF].

Who You Guru?

Another dead guy who channeled spirits of a dead guy that consumed too many spirits?

Only Swami knows which way the wind blows.

Higgs flaws

Confirmation of the Higgs boson constitutes a rendezvous with destiny for a generation of physicists. The finding affirms a universe described by simple, elegant, and symmetrical laws. However, everything we observe, including ourselves, is the result of flaws or breaks in symmetry! source

Warm, comfy future.

Don't worry! Be happy.

It is a well-known fact to people in the Fukushima area that 9% of the fuel is plutonium in the uranium rods in 'Fukushima III' Nuclear Power Plant and people are well aware that the consequences will be devastating if something more happens in plant III.
Actually, what already happened is an explosion.
But, videos of the explosion are not allowed to be seen. [...]
Interview with Mr. Koichi Oyama, member of the city council in Minamisōma city

MOX is the abbreviation for Mixed Oxide, a fuel for nuclear power plants that consists of a mixture of depleted uranium oxide and plutonium oxide.

Belgonucléaire Plant in Dessel ceased operations (manufacturing MOX) since mid 2006 and Cadarache has stopped its commercial production in 2003.

The National Nuclear Security Administration may have a $10 billion taxpayer-financed white elephant on its hands based on Britain’s experience with a similar plant that has been shuttered after a decade of failed operations.

We got a nifty color brochure for out $10 billion.

Warm and comfy Q and A.

"MOX fuel is not currently being produced in the U.S., but several European countries have been producing MOX fuel for more than 20 years. Their supply of plutonium is from spent nuclear fuel rather than nuclear weapons. Under agreements between Russia and the U.S., Russia also plans to build and operate a MOX fuel fabrication facility in Russia to reduce its surplus plutonium stockpile."

What was the US reaction?

"FUKUSHIMA, Never Again" Trailer

Around the world in 40 days.

Cesium 137 Detected in Virginia Rain: “I have said from the beginning that there is Fukushima fallout in the rain water.”

Yes, the future has a warm glow...

Perhaps eradication of the human species will bring a semblance of peace to the planet. Wait and see.

Announcing: Small Mind® Workshop

This is no Large Mind thingie for small minded people. No, this is a Small Mind® workshop for people who have gargantuan egos, minds, and pocketbooks!

Schedule: April 1, 2012
6 am - sitting (graduated extra charge for zafu, bench, and chair respectively)
7 am - I explain how I am THE vessel, source, or whatever
8 am - collection of cash, credit cards, PINs
9 am - chewing gum
10 am - sitting
11 am - shitting
12 am - lunch - significant extra charge, there is no free lunch
1 pm - I explain how you must tell all your 'friends' that I am THE vessel, source, or whatever - and get them to sign up next year.
2 pm - now just go away for a year (but earn lots of money for next time!)

As a result of this intensive (e.g. in tents experience), you will finally no longer get the big picture. You will no longer care, or wish to know, what is happening on the other side of the world, the other side of the nation, the other side of the state, the other side of town, the other side of the street, or the other side of the coin. In fact, you will no longer have a single coin anywhere to worry about!

On the other hand, you will finally be able to put your foot down.

A younger person, obviously in the serious pursuit of the great answer (which Swami alone knows) to life's ultimate mystery (which Swami alone has exhaustively enumerated each facet thereof in an extensive series of rather expensive Swami books), asked Swami if Swami could render unto him, at a reasonable discount, that pinnacle of esoteric assistance which was so highly valued by so many throughout the entire civilized world (as seen on TV).

To remain completely honest to the word reasonable, Swami first carefully looked at him with the precise Swami eyes of rigorous and critical evaluation for a considerable time and then produced a carefully measured reply which was completely perfect in the harmonious manifestation of the melodious utterance: "No."
