Discover what has been hidden from you…

THE UNDERGROUND KNOWLEDGE SERIES I-V  comprises the following books:

GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ

This book (with foreword by leading scientist Dr. Takaaki Musha) shatters the myth that geniuses are born not developed. It reveals how most instances of above-the-ordinary intelligences are acquired thru superior cognitive techniques or brain enhancing technologies. Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, it lists dozens of practical methods to increase IQ and speed-learn any subject. Among the discoveries shared are brain waves common to geniuses and various ways to induce those brain waves.

ANTIGRAVITY PROPULSION: Human or Alien Technologies?

A far-reaching exploration into the UFO phenomenon (with foreword by advanced interstellar propulsion systems expert Grant Hayman and afterword by leading scientist Dr. Takaaki Musha) that covers all possible scenarios and discounts nothing. It includes never-before-mentioned accounts of popular UFO topics like Area 51, Roswell and alien abduction claims, and lesser known subjects such as Nazi and Japanese antigravity experiments.

MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: The $ickness Industry, Big Pharma and Suppressed Cures

An explosive book (with afterword by retired pharmacist Denis Toovey) that explores the contention Big Pharma and other participants in the healthcare sector put profits ahead of patients’ wellbeing and dollars ahead of lives. This no-holds barred critique of mainstream medicine urges readers to stop giving away complete responsibility to doctors and other healthcare providers, and to take more responsibility for their own health.

THE CATCHER IN THE RYE ENIGMA: J.D. Salinger’s Mind Control Triggering Device or a Coincidental Literary Obsession of Criminals?

This book unearths the mysteries surrounding arguably the most controversial book of all time – J.D. Salinger’s 1951 novel The Catcher in the Rye. It examines the theory that, in league with the CIA, coded messages were implanted in that novel, inspiring some of the most infamous crimes of the 20th Century…including the murder of John Lennon and the attempted assassination of President Reagan.

INTERNATIONAL BANKSTER$: The Global Banking Elite Exposed and the Case for Restructuring Capitalism

This book identifies who is responsible for the gigantic financial gulf that separates the top 1% of the population from the common people, or the 99%. The financial overlords named and shamed include the powerbrokers at Wall Street banks, European central banks, the US Federal Reserve and the Vatican Bank, as well as elite banking dynasties. The authors also propose ideas for creating a fairer economic system.

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.

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

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.

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

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…

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

Developing peripheral vision is one of eight additional intelligence-boosting techniques we investigate (in addition to many of the more obvious ones) in our bestselling GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ — techniques we believe may hold brain boosting potential for aspiring geniuses.

An excerpt from Genius Intelligence follows:

Peripheral vision is what we use when something catches our attention “out of the corner of our eye.” It is the opposite of central vision, which is literally the center of our vision (looking directly ahead).

Most people in the modern world use central vision all day long with narrow field activities – such as looking at computer screens, reading books and watching television. This is akin to tunnel vision.

By contrast, our ancestors (especially Early Man) had stronger or better-attuned peripheral vision as they were primarily engaged in outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, fighting and traveling. To survive, they needed to scan entire landscapes to spot enemies and predatory animals and the like.

The reason for deterioration of our peripheral vision can be seen here.

In cinematic terms, our modern vision would be a close-up or extreme close-up whereas Early Man’s vision was akin to a panoramic wide-angle shot.

The problem with central vision is it has been shown in studies to be directly linked with beta brainwaves and the left hemisphere of the brain – in other words, stress city.

When you are looking at the world (literally) with peripheral vision, you immediately enter alpha brainwaves and the right hemisphere of the brain. This is much more relaxing and allows the subconscious to come into the equation for super learning.

For example, you may recall in chapter 4 we mentioned how the world’s greatest speed readers use their peripheral vision to take in entire pages at a time instead of one word at a time.

In his book Exuberant Animal: The Power of Health, Play and Joyful Movement, author Frank Forencich says, “We can be sure that long-term overuse of hyperfocused vision, coupled with atrophy of peripheral sensation, will lead to extensive re-wiring of the brain. We can even speculate on a possible link between balanced vision and intelligence. Chronic, tightly focused vision can do amazing things, but it only taps a fraction of our visual-cognitive capability. Monotonous visual inputs may very well lead to static, stereotyped thinking.

Exuberant Animal: The Power of Health, Play and Joyful Movement

Book addresses the vision issue.

“In contrast, a balance of focused and peripheral vision keeps the stimulation moving and taps a far greater percentage of our processing power. Just as chronic overuse of central vision may limit intelligence, active stimulation of our panoramic vision may actually increase it. The message: dumb yourself down with chronic centrally-focused vision; smarten yourself up by relaxing your eyes and letting the periphery in.”

Although ophthalmologists seem to agree there’s no real way to improve or sharpen peripheral vision, there is scientific research that suggests there are ways to at least improve peripheral awareness and the processing of peripheral images.

A few techniques to develop peripheral vision include:

  • Widening your vision to something closer to 180 degrees and becoming aware of everything to your extreme left and extreme right.

  • Defocus the eyes to counter the hard focus that occurs in central vision.

  • Practice eye exercises – especially ones that include a lot of wide-sweeping eye movements.

  • Play team sports like soccer or basketball, which force you to constantly use your peripheral vision.

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

When researching geniuses for our book, GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ, we discovered Albert Einstein took long walks around Princeton University when pondering complex equations. He often commented that many of his Eureka moments and creative breakthroughs came to him during these walks.

Albert Einstein at Princeton

Einstein…the walking genius.

Further research revealed that walking — like playing chess or drinking pure water — is another of those genius enhancement activities that potentially fall into the “too obvious” or “too simple” category.

Almost everyone has experienced wrestling with a problem all day then finally giving up and going for a stroll in the fresh air and suddenly receiving the answer unexpectedly and without trying.

Some might explain away this phenomenon as merely being the result of relaxing and defocusing from a problem and thereby allowing the subconscious mind to take over. Or others may simply say that virtually all exercise has been shown to benefit the human brain.

And there are no doubt degrees of truth to those counter points.

However, there may also be a sound scientific explanation as to why this low-impact physical exercise often yields the golden solution. Firstly, there’s a rhythmic flow to walking that puts one almost in a trance-like or meditative state. Secondly, the fact that you are moving two legs and two arms means you are engaging both hemispheres of the brain – people are therefore probably in the whole brain state while walking.

One study at Stanford University showed that subjects came up with more creative ideas during and immediately after a walk compared to those who simply sat at a desk.

Furthermore, a July 31, 2014 article in Psychology Today mentioned that German composer and pianist Ludwig van Beethoven “kept his creative promises by strategically using his time to incubate ideas. His favorite method of thinking things through? Long, solitary walks through the forested valleys of Vienna … Beethoven went for a vigorous walk after lunch, and he always carried a pencil and a couple of sheets of paper in his pocket to record chance musical thoughts.”

And it appears Beethoven and Einstein are not alone among history’s great geniuses. There are other examples.

For those who find walking too boring or just not their cup of tea, other physical exercises could possibly deliver similar results – exercises such as dancing, cycling or running for example.

Athletes, personal fitness trainers and sports medicine professionals are united in their opinion that exercise helps your mental function. Runners experience the pleasant – many say euphoric – runner’s high that comes with intense, sustained exercise. Such exercise (not just running) increases serotonin in the brain, leading to improved mental clarity.

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

In our new release book GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ, we explore the relationship between drinking water and increasing IQ.

original

This might fit into the stating the bleeding obvious category, but drinking water really can make a difference to mental alertness and overall cognitive skills.

Here’s why: every time you drink water it increases the brain’s electrochemical activity. Conversely, dehydration slows electrochemical activity and effectively makes you dumber.

Therefore, staying hydrated is a scientifically valid way to keep sharp mentally.

Be warned, though, drinking the right sort of water is as important as drinking enough water. And no, ordinary tap water won’t do the job folks. After all, tap water usually contains high levels of fluoride.

Numerous studies have shown fluoride reduces IQ levels and in some cases even causes brain damage. Never a good thing for those wanting to become geniuses!

In January 2013, physician and author Dr. Joseph Mercola wrote an article for the Huffington Post titled Harvard Study Confirms Fluoride Reduces Children’s IQ.

The article states, “A recently-published Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have “significantly lower” IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas.”

The Harvard study showed that fluoride causes neurotoxicity, which negatively impacts learning and memory.

The Huffington Post article continues, “There are so many scientific studies showing the direct, toxic effects of fluoride on your body, it’s truly remarkable that it’s NOT considered a scientific consensus by now. Despite the evidence against it, fluoride is still added to 70 percent of U.S. public drinking water supplies.”

Besides fluoride, there are a whole host of other contaminants usually found in tap water – such as chlorine and lead – and none of these will do an aspiring genius’s brain any favors.

Those wishing to increase their IQ levels would be wise to only drink pure water. Filtered water (either bottled or from a home/office filtration system) is certainly better than tap water. However, contrary to what filtered water companies tell customers, their product often contains numerous impurities – sometimes as many as are found in tap water.

The only pure water available on Earth is distilled water.

Distilled water…condensed steam.

As American medical doctor Dr. Andrew Weil states on his website, distilled water is “water that has been turned into steam so its impurities are left behind. The steam is then condensed to make pure water.”

Dr. Weil continues, “The process of distillation kills and removes virtually all bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, and other organic and inorganic contaminants. Once distilled, the water is as pure as water can reasonably be.”

It should be noted here that some health researchers believe distilled water can be detrimental to health if taken ongoing and long-term rather than for the more commonly recommended short periods or fasts. This counter theory suggests that drinking water that is completely demineralized, as is the case with distilled water, is detrimental to health in the long-run.

Dr. Weil, however, believes otherwise. He says, “While it’s true that distillation removes minerals as it eliminates various other contaminants from water, I don’t feel this is a problem. We get our minerals from food, not water.

“As far as acidity goes,” he continues, “distilled water is close to a neutral pH and has no effect on the body’s acid/base balance. Distilled water is safe to drink, and the kind of water I use myself.”

If the aspiring genius hunts hard enough, bottled distilled water can be found in some supermarkets and department stores. Otherwise, water distillers can be purchased for the home.

According to our research, distilled water is likely to have the most positive effects on the brain. However, we recommend consult with your doctor first.

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

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.

Bobby Fischer 1960 in Leipzig.jpg

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.”

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

One of the many interesting discussion threads in our ‘Underground Knowledge’ group on Goodreads.com reveals there is an exhaustive body of research that links the physical world with mental activity. In fact, Princeton University’s Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) recently completed a 28-year study on this very subject.

Princeton University, New Jersey

According to a press release issued by Princeton University, research staff focused on two major areas of study — anomalous human/machine interactions, which addresses the effects of consciousness on random physical systems and processes, and remote perception, wherein people attempt to acquire information about distant locations and events.

The article continues:

The enormous databases produced by PEAR provide clear evidence that human thought and emotion can produce measureable influences on physical reality.

We have accomplished what we originally set out to do 28 years ago, namely to determine whether these effects are real and to identify their major correlates.

There are still many important questions to be addressed that will require a coordinated interdisciplinary approach to the topic, but it is time for the next generation of scholars to take over.

 

Princeton’s PEAR studies show unequivocal evidence that thought can directly influence physical reality. As mentioned, this has inspired some some interesting debate in our ‘Underground Knowledge’ group.
