Ask a hundred people for their definition of the term genius and you’ll likely get a hundred different responses, including widely varying responses. We acknowledge and expand on this in the summary in our new release bestseller GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ.
Here’s the relevant excerpt from the book:
Though we are not historians, it’s our impression that in bygone eras the term genius was most used, or, at least often used, when describing brilliant artists like Leonardo da Vinci. Then, in the 20th Century, the term was more often reserved for academics like Albert Einstein. Now, in the 21st Century, it has assumed a broader meaning and is applied to individuals who have achieved extraordinary results in a wide variety of careers, pastimes and fields of endeavor that transcend academia.
Increasingly, we see references in the media and elsewhere to scientific genius or artistic genius or sporting genius, which supports this evolving definition of the word.
Certainly, dictionary definitions (of genius) allow for a broad interpretation. For example, common dictionary definitions include “exceptional intellectual or creative power or other natural ability” and “an exceptionally intelligent person or one with exceptional skill in a particular area of activity.”
A cursory look at our Thesaurus offers mastermind, prodigy, brain, intellect, virtuoso and even whiz kid as alternatives to the word genius.
We hope by now it is clear to you that genius can come in many forms besides the obvious academic giants like Einstein and Stephen Hawking – if in fact you were ever in doubt.
The term genius can legitimately be applied to certain sportsmen (à la golfer Tiger Woods and tennis player Roger Federer), business executives (Sir Richard Branson and Steve Jobs), artists (Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock), film directors (Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick) – and the list goes on.
For what it’s worth, our definition of genius is: Someone who demonstrates rare intellect, who successfully connects dots between seemingly unconnected things and who sees what others don’t to achieve revolutionary outcomes and extraordinary results.
With that in mind, it may be timely to remind you of what German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer said about genius: “Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.”
Given the examples in this book, it should now be evident there have always been individuals learning at speeds many or most mainstream educationalists would have us believe are not possible.
From speed-reading US presidents like JFK and Roosevelt, to great polymaths such as Archimedes and da Vinci, to savants like Kim Peek and Daniel Tammet, to intelligence agents and their ilk, history is full of people achieving intellectual feats well beyond the norm.
We concede it cannot be proven that elite groups are withholding some of the most advanced learning methods from mainstream society. Even so, it’s pretty obvious that little-known accelerated learning techniques do exist in one form or another – techniques (and technologies) capable of increasing IQ.
After reading Genius Intelligence, it should also be obvious that geniuses aren’t usually born geniuses, or, to put it another way, they aren’t necessarily born geniuses. Having studied the lives of numerous geniuses, we were surprised to discover most utilized – or, from a young age, were exposed to – various brain activation methods on their respective journeys to becoming acknowledged masters of their fields.
We have detailed, or at least touched on, many of those methods in this book and also given examples of individuals who reached the top of their respective fields employing their favored brain activation methods and disciplines.
We refer to the likes of business tycoons such as Rupert Murdoch who practice Transcendental Meditation, Hollywood stars like Gwyneth Paltrow who consume Ormus and Robin Williams who used isolation tanks. And other examples like bestselling author and life coach Anthony Robbins who mastered speed-reading, Apple founder Steve Jobs who practiced Yoga for mental inspiration, and former world heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson who used hypnosis before each fight.
It should now be abundantly clear many of those who reach the top of their fields use rare or little known methods to improve their mental powers to get the jump on the competition – be that in the intelligence, business, political, arts/entertainment, literary or sporting arenas, or, indeed, in any or all sectors of life.
We trust you’ll now agree the brain’s potential is the human potential!
As technology evolves and new scientific breakthroughs occur – such as revolutionary smart drugs and brain stimulation devices – one thing seems certain: super-intelligence will be an option for everyone in the future.
The signs are that future is not far off. For the elite, or for those in the know at least, it seems the future has already arrived…
