As the title of book one in our controversial Underground Knowledge Series suggests, GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ  goes where mainstream education and academics seldom venture.

 

GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ (The Underground Knowledge Series Book 1) by [Morcan, James, Morcan, Lance]

 

We, the authors, remind readers the brain’s potential is the human potential, and we pose the question: What if there are faster and easier ways to learn and study than the modi operandi currently being taught in mainstream education systems?

In the following, we list some of the ideas, theories and suggestions explored in the book. (The links take you to discussion threads in our popular Underground Knowledge global discussion group on Goodreads):

It seems our book GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ  is polarizing readers if the early reviews are anything to go by. Reviewers either love it or hate it. Despite this, it remains a regular fixture in Amazon’s bestseller lists.

GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ (The Underground Knowledge Series Book 1)

Genius Intelligence asks readers to ponder whether there are faster and easier ways to learn and study than the modi operandi currently being taught in mainstream education systems.

That was always going to rankle with academics and graduates of the mainstream education system. After all, who wants to spend years studying at school and uni. and then put that hard-earned knowledge to work in the community only to be told there may be better, faster, easier and more effective ways to develop the human mind? Especially when the advice is coming from a couple of reprobates like ourselves (the authors) who not only don’t have any academic qualifications to speak of, but barely completed high school!

Despite that, the book is resonating with many readers.

Among the discoveries we share within its pages are brain waves common to geniuses and the various ways to induce those brain waves; mental techniques the world’s elite and A-List celebrities are quietly using to help them process information while they’re asleep or in virtual worlds; chemical substances students and academics the world over employ to kick-start the brain into overdrive; and cutting-edge technologies business tycoons and professional athletes employ to gain a cerebral edge over their competitors.

Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, Genius Intelligence lists dozens of practical methods to increase IQ and speed-learn any subject.

 

One of the latest reviews of Genius Intelligence  on Amazon addresses the academic viewpoint, the criticism and a few other factors as well. Here’s the review in full:

 

Genius Overview ★★★★★  Review by Edward M. Drobinski

This is a comprehensive overview of the many possible factors which have culminated in what we call genius intelligence.

If, like me, you are a novice in this subject, this is the best place I know of to start your exploration. Yes, if and when your focus becomes more microscoped, there are other very PhD-candidate-type books which will provide more detail into scientifically sanctioned studies, and hopefully you will not be the recipient of another equivocal paper, already superseded by “new” methodology. But, whatever your choice of paths this has to be the starting point.

On a very small level this book has been criticized by competitors and their entourage. The wisdom of the general public has found them in an overwhelming decision of no use. This book is, as customary for the Morcans works, extremely well-written, clear and beyond any reproach possible from a skilled, mainstream critic.

Barring all that crap; it will make you laugh and wonder.

There’s a theory that playing chess from a young age develops certain parts of a child’s brain develop quicker than normal, especially areas relating to strategy. We explore this in our new release book GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ.

Children playing chess; London Chess Classic: the chess set come to Britain

English primary school children play chess. 

In our international thriller series The Orphan Trilogy, our fititious orphans play rapid-fire matches known as Lightning Chess in which entire games are completed in 10 minutes or less. Playing Lightning Chess and multiple games (of chess) simultaneously relates to thinking so fast that the conscious mind must yield to the superior subconscious — another intelligence-enhancing technique.

It has been recognized by many observers that chess players often have very high IQ’s and seem to exhibit many of the telltale signs of genius.

What does it do to a child’s brain to play chess from a young age?

Nobody knows for sure and test results remain inconclusive to date. No doubt it is a difficult thing to study precisely given it requires studying young chess players over years if not decades.

Experimental results, however, have been collected from the likes of the Grandmaster Eugene Torre Chess Institute, in the Philippines, and the United States Chess Federation as well as other chess schools around the world. All these bodies agree that playing the board game increases intellect in young people.

Plus a few small studies have also shown that chess players develop better memories, verbal skills, mathematical abilities as well as healthier problem-solving skills and imaginations than the average person.

For example, a 1995 research study on chess and students was conducted by American cardiologist Dr. Robert Ferguson. It showed that chess improves a child’s critical thinking skills. Ferguson’s subjects, who were all school students aged between 11 and 14, improved their test results by 17% on average after becoming proficient chess players.

Chess champ Bobby Fischer started playing at age six.

An article that appears on the neuroscience and brain health website Examined Existence provides further insights into the potential link between chess and high intelligence.

Headlined Does Playing Chess Make You Smarter?, the report boldly states that chess definitely improves IQ.

The article states, “According to a study conducted in Venezuela, results have shown that children who took chess classes for 4½ months have increased their IQ points. This conclusion is also backed up by a 2003 study of Murray Thompson, a Ph.D. Education student at the Flinders University in Australia. In his research, participants who played chess also demonstrated improved IQ levels. Thompson ascribes this to the concentration and logical thinking a chess game calls for.”

The Examined Existence article also mentions that chess can improve mental abilities in adults as well, including the elderly. “Chess has proven to be highly effective in protecting the elderly from neuro-degenerative conditions like dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.”

******************************************

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) may be one way to increase IQ. We explore this process in our new release book GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ.

NLP Master Practitioner - Lynda JohnsonCreated in the US in the 1970’s, it is claimed there’s an important link between the neurological processes (“neuro”) and language (“linguistic”). The conclusion NLP makes is that desired behavioral patterns can be achieved through specific “programming”.

Famous practitioners of NLP include the likes of Warren Buffet, Gerard Butler, Tony Robbins, Russell Brand, Paul McKenna and Andre Agassi.

One theory suggests it is possible to ‘model genius’ through NLP techniques. Modeling genius apparently requires NLP practitioners to model or adopt genius qualities they see in others they wish to be like.

For example, an aspiring professional (male) golfer may model himself on Tiger Woods, while a young businessman may model himself on Richard Branson. Or, perhaps more to the point of Genius Intelligence, science students could attempt to model themselves on Albert Einstein.

******************************************

Hypnotism is one way to achieve accelerated learning and optimum mental performance, and to prime the mind for intense concentration – as many scientific studies have shown. The technique as been used by countless renowned figures spanning numerous fields of expertise.

Hypnotherapy in Bristol with Hypnotherapist Sarah Mortimer

Albert Einstein was known to do hypnosis sessions every afternoon. The German-born theoretical physicist’s great theory of relativity discovery entered his mind during one of those sessions, and he used the hypnotic trance state to develop many of his other theories and formulas.

American inventor Thomas Edison used hypnotism on a regular basis – self-hypnosis in fact.

In Britain, Princess Diana utilized hypnosis to improve her public speaking skills, while Sir Winston Churchill was given post-hypnotic suggestions so he could stave off tiredness and endure long periods without sleep throughout WW2.

Several great classical music composers were hypnotism devotees. They include Seigei Rachmaninoff who, after a post-hypnotic suggestion given by early hypnosis specialist Nikolai Dahl, composed his much loved Second Piano Concerto; Mozart also used hypnotism as a creative aid and his opera Cosi Fan Tutte was entirely composed in a hypnotic trance.

Mozart…an early adopter of hypnosis.

Nineteenth Century British poet Lord Alfred Tennyson was known to regularly write poems in a hypnotic state.

While writing the feature film screenplay of Rocky, the then-unknown Sylvester Stallone used self-hypnosis tapes to boost willpower and creativity. Later, during each day of filming Rocky, in 1975, Stallone worked with well-regarded hypnotherapist Gil Boyne to help ensure the movie would become the blockbuster it turned out to be.

Continuing with the boxing theme, in Mike Tyson’s 2013 autobiography Undisputed Truth, Tyson mentions how he used hypnotism and self-hypnotism throughout his career, and specifically before each fight. He partly attributes this to his success in becoming a two-time World Heavyweight champion.

Tyson cites French psychologist Émile Coué’s self-hynotism methods, including autosuggestion, as being amongst those he used.

Coué’s 1922 book Self-Mastery Through Conscious Autosuggestion is recommended further reading on the subject of self-hypnotism.

Another famous athlete to use hypnosis for sports performance is Tiger Woods. The man who is arguably the greatest golf player of all time has been practicing hypnosis – both with a hypnotist and giving himself hypnotic suggestions – since his early teens. This period of his life was also when he started his extensive mental training with family friend and psychologist Dr. Jay Brunza.

Besides Tyson and Woods, another major sports star to have regularly used hypnosis during his career was Michael Jordan. The basketball legend was hypnotized before every game to enhance his mental focus. Furthermore, the entire Chicago Bulls team, which won six NBA championships during Jordan’s reign of supremacy in the 1990’s, incorporated hypnotherapy in their pregame routine to gain a psychological advantage over their opponents.

Jordan…hypnotized before games.

 

Subliminal education

Closely aligned with hypnosis are subliminal messages, which the latest research suggests may also have the potential to instruct the subconscious mind and access higher intelligence. Indeed, some hypnotists have been known to incorporate subliminal messages in hypnotic audio recordings made for clients or the public at large.

Subliminal messages – also known as subliminals – are probably more controversial and slightly less proven than hypnosis, however.

Subliminals are any sensory stimuli that occur below an individual’s threshold of conscious awareness. What this means is messages can be sent to your mind without you being aware of the fact.

Subliminal messaging is nothing new of course. The technique has been around at least since the advent of radio and television when subliminal advertising reared its ugly head, and by the late 20th Century a whole host of scientific studies had concluded subliminals were not remotely effective.

However, more recent studies have shown the reverse. Science may be beginning to show just how effective subliminals can be.

For example, new studies involving functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have revealed that subliminals activate crucial regions of the brain including the hippocampus, the amygdala, the primary visual cortex and the insular cortex.

*************************************

Our new release book GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ has been a regular visitor to Amazon’s Bestseller Lists since its recent publication, and it currently holds Amazon’s No.1 ranking in Experimental Education.

1 Genius techniques of the elite

2 Polymaths and high-IQ individuals

3 Outrunning the conscious mind

4 Speed-reading

15 Meditation & Yoga

16 Midbrain activation

17 Hypnosis

18 Other genius methods

 

In Chapter 1 (Genius techniques of the elite) we reveal our thinking on education – both the mainstream variety and the secret, or hidden, variety only certain favored people have access to.

It has long been speculated that secret societies, mystery schools, intelligence agencies and other clandestine organizations have advanced learning methods superior to anything taught in even the most prestigious universities. Methods which are only ever taught to the chosen few – initiates who have all sworn an oath to keep the group’s syllabus in house and never reveal any of the teachings to outsiders.

On the rare occasions the public get wind of these types of advanced learning techniques – usually via information leaked to the Internet, sometimes via published books – they are seldom tested or given the attention they deserve and so largely remain in obscurity. One reason for this could be the advanced techniques are often not comprehensible because whoever is behind them has withheld the overall curriculum.

There’s many a tale of mysterious figures from secretive groups mastering skills, languages and even complex career paths so quickly that most would say it’s impossible.

But that opinion assumes we common people know of, or have access to, all the learning methods known to man.

If we are to assume there are superior learning methods not taught in our mainstream education system then this naturally leads to other questions.

What if your child’s top-notch education is actually a second-rate education?

Or, if you are a student, what if that professor you look up to is no mastermind, but just a tool of an inferior learning institution?

None of this is to disrespect formal education. It plays a vital role in society and the betterment of Mankind, and only a fool would doubt the importance of getting a good education.

Nor are we suggesting there isn’t the odd learning institution that teaches at least some accelerated learning techniques, although such establishments would probably exist on the fringes of mainstream education.

The Montessori system is possibly one such example as it allows children to have greater freedom of expression and to learn in playful and organic ways.

Successful alumni of the Montessori education system include Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, tennis champion Roger Federer and Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

 Roger Federer

Roger Federer…Montessori alumni

In general, however, accelerated learning methods are more likely to be found outside the modern education system.

Let’s face it, wherever in the world you go, real prodigies are the exception not the norm in the present system. Those rare individuals whom society labels as geniuses are almost always freaks of nature and are naturally gifted rather than being diligent students who became geniuses as a result of their education.

 

“I’ll be a genius and the world will admire me. Perhaps I’ll be despised and misunderstood, but I’ll be a genius, a great genius.” – Salvador Dalí. Written in his diary at the age of 16.
