Optimum Intelligence

Why do so many seemingly intelligent people not reach goals that they are more than capable of achieving? Here is a view from a great scientist and writer Edward D Wilson it’s related to science but the point is still valid.

The level of creativity in science, as in art, depends as much on self image as on talent. To be highly successful the scientist must be confident enough to steer for blue water, abandoning sight of land for a while. He values risk for its own sake. He keeps in mind that the foot notes of forgotten treatises are strewn with the names of the gifted but timid. If on the other hand he chooses, like the vast majority of his colleagues, to hug the coast, he must be fortunate enough to possess what I like to call optimum intelligence for normal science: bright enough to see what needs to be done but not so bright as to suffer boredom from doing it.

I believe I know quite a few people in this category. Excellent at what they do but they don’t seem bored in doing it.

6 words 6 combinations

I don’t really know why I did this little activity. I made a sentence out of six words and then tried to re-arrange the sentence to mean something else with the same words. I found it strange I could not get out of the same subject with all the six words.

Never will there be a time

There never will be a time

A time will never be there

A time never will there be

Never be a time will there

Never a time will there be

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

I love this stance on philosophy by Rousseau the self-professed enemy of books and writing.

"The dreams of a bad night are given to us as philosophy. You will say I too am a dreamer; I admin it, but I do what others fail to do, I give my dreams as dreams, and leave the reader to discover whether there is anything in them which may prove useful to the those who are awake."

Glowing fish

A Taiwanese scientist H.J.Tsai has decided to sell his transgenic fish. The fish glow green under a black light. Europe has band these abominations (good on them) and they cannot be imported to Australia (woohoo). The unacceptable thing about these things, in his words "90% have been sterilized, which is safe enough" Hmm I don't remember 90% ever being 100% do you? They will get out in the wild that’s a certainty. How successful they will be in the wild is another story. These fish were created originally for research. Normally they would make the hearts florescent or other organs, it's a great tool. It being used for profit I find pretty sad.

Smart Clothes

Imagine carpets with computer chips stitched in. You could have them every few centimetres, creating a network. They could monitor everything from movement, temperature, and damage or for security ect. I’ve always thought that space craft could use a similar technology. You could have the entire body of the craft covered in computer chips millimetres apart. If anyone of them gets damaged you would know instantly the location and size. Or you could have clothing that communicates with other clothing. You could walk past a stranger and his shoes let’s you in on some temperature data or locations, which you may be interested in. Anyhow Infineon is working on fabrics with computer chips attached to them it sounds really cool.

Sugar and Diabetes

Scientific evidence has proven that eating too much refined sugars on a daily bases for long periods may cause diabetes. Eating excess refined sugars increases the glucose and sucrose levels in the blood. This excess needs to be absorbed so the pancrease produces insulin. After years of abuse the pancrease in many people basically is worn out and fails, which then causes diabetes.

The World Health Organization or WHO believes that no more than 10 percent of calories should come from added sugars daily. The American sugar industry ASI has retaliated claiming that the WHO's science is incorrect. They claim it will not improve health and will only damage developing nations sugar exports.

I can't believe that ASI is saying openly that sugar and diabetes have no connection and that cutting back on sugar will not improve our health. Any half intelligent human on the planet knows there talking shit and that there worried about profits. What’s sad is that thousands of children and adults are becoming obese and diabetic each year as a result of such incompetent and blatant disregard for human life.

I really dislike it when people you know only respond to certain emails you send and not to others. As a protest I have decided to remove a few people I know from my email list. So what’s it going to be like? Have to wait and see.

Hitting a nerve

It’s been many months since I did some writing on religion but I have been getting back into it the last few months. Any who here goes.

Just a few things I wrote about Jesus many years ago. I though it's time to put them on my blog. 15 Years ago when I started finding out what a grand deception and delusion I was part of I couldn't say a word about it to anyone (believe me I tried with negative results). Now I find more and more information about the topic everywhere I look, from novels to documentaries. It's a great feeling, knowing that finally people are allowing themselves to question what they have been warned and even killed not to think about for almost 1000 years. Over a thousand years of ignorance is finally coming to an end.

Jesus is not

Nor did her ever intend

to be seen as a God

On a similar note

Jesus had sex

Jesus had children

Jesus was a man

I think Leonardo Da Vinci put it nicely. "Many have made a trade of delusions and false miracles, deceiving the stupid multitude".
