Clear the mind of what?
250 is the MENSA registered cap as of the mid 80's.
It might also interest everyone to know that the average IQ was dropped from 130 to 100-110 which is a tad bit frightening.
As far as curing cancer, I hate biology and quarks can't be modified with mere thought since thought cannot create that much energy. Brain waves are only so powerful.
I challenege anyone to push their minds to the limit and see what can be done. As a being, we have not even touched on our abilities. The trick is to clear the mind, not fill it.
I don't know how to explain it really. Have you ever just known something? You never studied it, never researched it or played with it... it is just something that makes sense? It is sort of like that. Your mind works, your body takes action and you are left to work through it later. Basically, set your mind in the direction with your consciousness and then let go. The answers come more freely that way.
EDIT: It is something I have just always been able to do. I let my mind do the work while I let my consciousness wander about other topics which require its attention.
I've been exposed to the notion that IQ has increased over the last 100 years. When it comes to IQ, the average is always 100. What qualifies as 100 has become more demanding as the average has increased. Einstein's 140-something would be lower if he were to take the test today. The scale is 90-110 being considered average. 80-90 below average. 110-120 above average. Below 70 is mentally retarded; above 130 is regional genius or "gifted." Typically 140 or higher is considered universal genius. If you want, sometime I might google for a reference- but not right now... and I'm certainly not going to refer you to my textbook
Sorry, don't mean to be difficult here. One thing to keep in mind is that the tests vary. I tend to score higher on mensa tests than I do the ones I've taken at school, and yet, I am in fact the same person. IQ supposedly rarely varies more than ten in a single lifespan. Of course, the more you take a test, the higher you will score (regardless if change). Additionally, we must remember that what the numbers mean also vary.
Below 70 is mentally retarded;
Well then I suppose I will have to find some other scale for potential in which to meassure accurate or semi-accurate results that would match with social conduct in a pure communicative social structure.
Well the purpose of meassuring IQ is to meassure potential.
The internet is a purely communicative social structure in that I have no idea what you look like, sound like, act like... merely how you communicate.
Social conduct is how you behave within the social structure.
So I need to find some scale which allows me to meassure potential accurately or semi-accurately according to social conduct in a purely communicative social structure.
I range between 137-143 depending on the test, and my wife ranges the same, but has scored 147 on the provincial IQ test that they gave out in high school.
We're hoping our newborn son breaks the curve and outwits us by the time he's potty trained.
That being said...
Marilyn vos Savant Writer Marilyn vos Savant (born 1946) has an IQ of 228, the highest ever recorded.
Stephen Hawking's IQ is 205.
You claim yours to be 214. Gratz if it is, but I'll vocalize my sincerest doubts regardless.
