AMAZING ARTICLES #37: SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY -
"there is no better tomorrow if we do not learn today."
There is nothing more valuable than true, good intelligence is. As it was mentioned in
MERCY, intelligence is the
only thing that makes us "alike" our CREATOR, because the GREAT CREATOR himself is ONLY
Unfortunately, only a few people understand what INTELLIGENCE
really means. Listen to the following.
Birds use a dynamic gliding technique to fly; that means, they need a certain, initial speed
before they actually start flying--well, most of them do. The same technique is used by
the dolphins to
"swim". It has been noticed that dolphins are capable of speeds of up to 80 Km/hr, although they move
their body very little in order to propel themselves. The scientists were, and they still are, puzzled
dolphins' incredible speed, and they cannot explain it.
This is the explanation,
dear friends: when dolphins achieve a certain,
initial speed, they cease to "propel" themselves; what they do
is, they use the shape of their body to
increase the "lifting force" [best defined by the Bernoulli equation]. To us, dolphins
execute just a few
wave-like motions while they actually glide through the water at the incredible speed of
80 Km/hr! Anyway, both the birds and the fish [we know that dolphins are not fish; this is not important] use
lifting-force to fly/glide, and that action requires a certain amount of logic named,
Beetle insects use a lot more elaborated technique to fly. Their front wings are curved, hard surfaces, and that
increases the efficiency of the lifting-force; the hind wings work behind the front ones to suck the air.
Therefore, bugs can easily take-off and fly straight up. The point to note is, controlling that type of flying is
no joke, although the brain of those little bugs is . . . Well!
Lastly, the most intriguing type of flying is butterflies' one: they use, mostly, the
forces to fly, and that manner of flying appears strange and funny looking to us. On the other hand, using the
action-reaction forces to fly is THE MOST DIFFICULT type of flying! Now, the birds need
a few weeks to watch their
parents fly, and then a day or two of exercises before they actually learn to fly. Next, young birds continue
perfecting their flying technique for a few more weeks. In contrast, a
little butterfly comes out of its pupa and it needs only a couple
hours to dry and straighten its wings, then it starts flying!
Note this: all its previous life the butterfly
creature was a
caterpillar crawling on branches; next, the butterfly is locked in a a pupa where it suffers the most intriguing
phenomenon in nature: the metamorphosis! Once that incredible,
miraculous transformation is ended, the new little creature
knows how to fly! How is that possible? The only reasonable explanation is,
the butterfly has the
instinct of flying embedded into its genes! Sure but, what is that "instinct", and how is it
translated into GENES? Nobody can answer this question.
In principle, the instinct is defined as "an automatic, reflex-like, inherited knowledge". The problem
is, how could a thought, or knowledge, be coded into genes [better said into molecules]? If
that were true, then we could design "instinctual programs" into the genes of new babies; we could
create geniuses before they are actually born! Of course, it doesn't work that way.
The truth is, this most basic form of intelligence,
the instinct, cannot be explained by our
"mechanical" science. More advanced forms of intelligence are simply beyond our power of
comprehension. We all take it for granted this phenomenal process of "thinking", but we have absolutely no idea
it is performed. Can you imagine that, if you put together atoms, or complex organic molecules, into a small
pile, they are going to start thinking by themselves? Just think carefully about that, and you
should realize that there
is something very, very strange happening there. This extraordinary process
of thinking shouldn't be possible!
The basis of the ordinary thinking process which we all experience permanently goes
way beyond our Atomic Universe: it
has the roots into what we named in our SF books, and in these Amazing Articles, the Subatomic. To be a little more specific,
our thinking is finalized/performed on Primary Energies (and by the
Certitude Factors). For details about the Subatomic,
Primary Energies, Certitude Factors, and about the process of thinking, we strongly
recommend reading first
MERCY, then Three Stories from Hilsa'N Tassa Galaxy.
Right! To come back on track, the process of thinking cannot be explained using the science we know.
Little children are born with the instinct of milk sucking, of recognizing their mothers, of hiding, of crying,
and of many others. However, the most remarkable human instinct is
the capacity of learning: it is
children are capable of
learning . . . [we do not know how to size this appropriately]; some children are capable
of learning more than we can imagine, and most children are capable of learning incredibly much. Allow us to
present a trivial, personal example.
At Corollary Theorems we offer for sale the book
Logically Structured English Grammar4, and we rate it as "beginner-intermediate". However,
almost everybody is telling us that the book is perfectly logic,
complete, though incredibly complex ["way too advanced"--they cry out loud]. Not so, dear people.
When Mr. O G POPA has ended grade eight, he had to pass an examination for
admission into highschool [that highschool was in fact a "Theoretical Lyceum"]. One exam out of
was a set of books perfectly similar to
Logically Structured English Grammar4, meaning,
it contained the complete
morphological and syntactical analyses.
Mind this, please: Mr. O G POPA was A GRADE EIGHT student, and that was, again,
exam out of three! Today, highschool graduates have absolutely no idea what the words "Accusative" or
Note that it is never children or students' fault: they are capable of learning as much as we teach them.
However, if we do not teach our children appropriately, it is natural they do not learn anything. The
negative result is,
children become adults, and some adults start asking: "What is life?"; "Why do we live?";
"What is 'humanely'?"; and so on. In other words, they live in a state of intellectual semi-primitivism
[as a cynical joke, this state is named "tabula rasa", or "clean slate" in plain
English--it refers to the status of the brain]. In order to become an
intellectual, or even an intelligent, logic person, you must train your
brain with very, very much GOOD KNOWLEDGE.
The Psychology science uses the "Intelligence IQ" (Intelligence Quotient/Quality) scale to
label/mark individuals. Please believe this: we swear we tried really hard to make some sense
out of that "Intelligence
IQ" thing for years, but all our efforts proved to be futile. The most important quality we have is
humanity, which is not included into the IQ scale. Take a criminal, for example: he may have a very
high IQ, in his criminal way, but that IQ number means, for certain, nothing good for anybody,
or for our society.
OK then, what should we do to measure the intelligence level people have, so that we can use that information
in some beneficial way? There are a few good methods, though we will exemplify only a simple one here. Now, one of
the most important mathematical concepts we know is the "limit". The way this mathematical limit works
is this: if we have an infinite series, we can calculate its maximum and minimum limits. Of course, minus and plus
infinite are valid mathematical limits, except in real life they do not make much sense; therefore, they are replaced
by two theoretical maximum and minimum limits.
Suppose we have a range of 11 numbers, from 0 to 10, with 0 representing the minimum level of intelligence, and 10
the maximum one. The first thing to note is the middle point, 5, representing the
average intelligence. In any
society (anywhere in the Universe) people's intelligence may be considered as being somewhere within the
theoretical 0 to 10 limits. Let's picture this somehow.
TSA [Theoretical Social (Intelligence) Average] presented above is only a theoretical limit because, in any particular
society/culture, real TSA may be well into the "pink zone" of Under Average
Intelligence. However, our wish is that society would develop into the "blue zone" of Above Average Intelligence. Let's
picture this idea.
abbreviations are used in the above picture: RSA stands for Real Social Average, and
WSA means Wished Social
Average. The point to note is, RSA is under TSA, and that requires a few explanations,
because we are certain that many do not agree with the idea.
Yeah, except we are not going to do it in this Article--it
is already too long.
This Article presents only a few introductory notions, and we trust there is nothing difficult up to this point. We
will have to stop here, because these things are not so easy to understand--it is best to read about them only a
little bit at a time. Do not worry, dear friends, you are going to read
the entire topic in our next Amazing Articles; however, if you want to
understand social psychology, then we do recommend our SF books.
