New Zealand father-and-son writing team Lance and James Morcan have secured an Arabic translation rights deal for one of their non-fiction books with major Saudi Arabian publisher Obeikan Publishing.
The book, titled ‘GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ’, was published last December by Sterling Gate Books. The first book in the Morcans’ ‘Underground Knowledge Series’, it includes a foreword by acclaimed Japanese scientist Dr. Takaaki Musha, and is already a permanent fixture in Amazon’s bestseller lists.

Translation rights deal a first.
In his foreword, Dr. Musha says he believes believe this is a much needed book for those who sense there are faster and easier ways to learn and study than the methods currently being taught in mainstream education systems. “It contains a wide range of genius methods – all of which have the potential to increase your IQ,” he says.
Commenting on the Saudi deal today, Lance Morcan says it was negotiated by their German-based world rights literary agent. “We are delighted Obeikan have secured the Arabic translation rights for Genius Intelligence,” he says. “Their initial commitment is a print run of 3000 copies and our book will be distributed throughout the Middle East.”
Lance says he and James have contracts with foreign literary agents around the world, ensuring they have representation for the translation rights for all their fiction and non-fiction books in all languages. The Saudi agreement is their first foreign language deal.
The Morcans now have 10 published titles, including the international thriller series ‘The Orphan Trilogy’ and historical adventure series ‘The World Duology’, with two more titles to be released in the coming weeks. One of these is ‘Medical Industrial Complex’, book three in ‘The Underground Knowledge Series’.

Do you believe A.I. (artificial intelligence) will ever be more advanced/sophisticated than human intelligence? That’s the question we put in our latest poll to members of our Underground Knowledge Discussion Group on Goodreads.com. Most respondents to date have answered “Yes” to the question.

119009

In posting this most intriguing of questions, we suggest fellow ‘Undergrounders’  (group members) consider whether AI will ever surpass humanity “over all” — meaning AI might be able to beat human intelligence in isolated fields like a game of chess, but can it ever be more advanced in almost every other intellectual field?

To date, interim poll results — to the question “Do you believe A.I. (artificial intelligence) will ever be more advanced/sophisticated than human intelligence?” — are as follows:

53% say Yes / 37% say No / 10% are Unsure.

A random selection of members’ (abridged) responses follows:

I believed No before that the machine can transcend the capability of human brain. But I think there is a possibility that the machine can transcend the human brain by studying the bain mechanism from the standpoint of superluminal particles. In some future, we will obtain the technology for superluminal physics which can manupulate superluminal particles, which can lead to the realization of HAL 9000 in this world.

 

I voted NO in this poll and believe AI will never beat human intelligence. Reason being in my opinion (which is really just a gut instinct) is that human intelligence has an indefinable creativity inbuilt in it that is unprogrammable.

 

I think it’s a matter of how you define “intelligence.” In terms of storing knowledge, we’re already there. My desktop “knows” a whole lot more than I do and databases store more than we could ever remember and then, of course, there’s Wikipedia. Synthesizing data is slightly more complex, but certainly possible given enough “if-then” statements. A certain level of morality can be programmed relatively easily…However, creativity and having emotions are another story. Those define us as humans and individuals. It’s also the driving force behind most of our actions. How much that can ever be imbued in a machine or robot is another story.

 

I voted “no”, but if humans continue to behave at na inferior level, without improving their skills, of course we will be beaten by AI. I mean, if we want to stay at the level of AI, or better, to overpass it, humans need to keep working continuosly on themselves, and improve their institutions and societies…In the jungle, without preparation, even a chacal beats us…

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

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.

Speed writing is the last of many intelligence-boosting techniques — some proven, some not — we explore in our bestselling GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ

speed writingHowever, it’s only right to add a disclaimer, pointing out that to our knowledge no studies have been done on it whatsoever. In fact, we are not aware of anyone else ever having mentioned it before – at least not in the way we approach it.

Certainly, there are numerous books and websites devoted to writing manuscripts quickly, but we aren’t talking about writers completing entire novels super-fast or students writing essays or letters in half the normal time.

Ours is simply an unusual little speed writing technique we discovered by accident and noticed it worked wonderfully on many occasions and always when we were severely time pressured. We consider this fortuitous discovery an important ingredient in our successes as published authors and feature film screenwriters.

The following excerpt from Genius Intelligence explains the technique:

This technique, like many of the others listed in this book, no doubt relates to outrunning the conscious mind and going so fast that the superior subconscious is forced to completely take over.

So, as the name suggests, you write so quickly that you don’t even know what you’re writing anymore. The goal is not to get instantly well-written text, but rather stream-of-consciousness stuff that you can revise and give clearer meaning to later.

According to our experiences, the resulting stream will usually have pearls within it, but a lot will need to be edited out as well.

Some of our best plot ideas or character decisions in our novels and film scripts have come using this speed writing technique. We just write super-fast and almost without thinking – maybe for five minutes or so – and more often than not what we wrote solved a major storyline issue or character problem.

It seems that certain insights can only come in this manner – or at least come more easily – as opposed to writing at regular speed. Sometimes you hit a brick wall when writing novels or screenplays. Something is missing and that something cannot be rectified with the conscious mind no matter how hard you try.

 

writer

We’ve also found speed writing is one way to solve the dreaded writer’s block.

Whether you use this method to add to an existing draft of a document, or whether you’re still attempting to complete a first draft, it works. We’ve proven it to our own satisfaction on numerous occasions.

Speed writing is not just for authors of course. It can be used to good effect by others – students who may be writing essays, for example, or business executives drafting reports or preparing finance proposals. It can even be used in your personal life when you’re facing a dilemma and cannot think of any solutions with your conscious mind – in this case you can speed write a list of possible options and see what your subconscious mind delivers to you.

If you want to test the method we use, try the following: put yourself under a time constraint by setting an alarm clock for 5-10 minutes then tell yourself you must write as much as you’d normally write in 45-60 minutes. Go! Until the alarm clock rings, don’t judge yourself or censor yourself or analyze anything – simply write as much as you can, as quickly as you can.

During the process it may feel like you’re writing utter garbage, but if our experiences are anything to go by, there will at least be some gems you can retain or use to vastly improve whatever it is you’re writing.

Our theory on why speed writing works is that you are not only forcing yourself to operate at speeds that only the subconscious mind can keep up with, but you are also not analyzing, censoring or critiquing what you write as you go (another bad trait of the conscious mind).

The best ideas often seem ridiculous at first and this technique allows you to just get all ideas out of your head and onto paper so you can consider them later.

Exactly how does speed writing relate to genius intelligence? Well, the connection is totally unproven, but instinct and personal experience tells us that, if done correctly (trance-like and without hesitation), you’ll tap into that great reservoir of the subconscious mind where all genius abilities come from.

A final point: when speed writing, it’s immaterial whether you write with pen in hand or use a computer keyboard. That said, we find speed writing seems to flow better when handwriting text – almost as if the pen’s a natural extension of the hand, allowing thoughts and words to flow directly from the brain onto the writing pad.

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

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.
