In our new release book GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ, we draw the conclusion – based on over a decade’s research – that genius intelligence is more the result of nurture than nature.

This assertion has sparked quite a debate – in our ‘Underground Knowledge’ discussion group on Goodreads.com and elsewhere. One group member, who professes to be a genius and has the IQ (182) to confirm this, insists geniuses are born.

We (my co-writer and I) beg to differ.

Our research clearly shows that higher intelligence is not necessarily something you’re born with or genetically predisposed toward. In fact, most instances of above-the-ordinary intelligences are usually acquired thru superior learning techniques – many of which we cover in detail in our book.

Reading about the greatest minds in history, including recent history, more often than not reveals the individuals concerned (or people close to them) employed specific learning methods. The examples we cite throughout our book shatter the myth that geniuses are always born with exceptional intelligence and/or talent.

Certainly, there are those born with amazing abilities not fostered by educational methods, but our research has revealed these naturally gifted geniuses are definitely the exception, not the norm.

A classic example of this natural born genius myth is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart whom most believe was simply a wunderkind, or virtuoso, from infancy. Many brain researchers have also described the Austrian composer as someone who just had incredible musical and artistic abilities from birth.

 

 Mozart as a child.

However, as with most geniuses, there is a significant body of evidence to support the contentious theory that Mozart’s brilliance was as much the result of nurture as it was nature, if not more so.

It is true the musical prodigy was composing by five, and by seven or so he was performing for audiences throughout Europe. And while achievements like that, at those early ages, are certainly extraordinary, the key point is that Mozart came from a musical family and was pushed to excel musically. As soon as he could walk and talk, in fact, or even earlier if you stop to consider he was exposed to classical compositions while still in his mother’s womb.

The young Mozart’s father Leopold was a renowned composer in his own right and an ambitious musical teacher who wanted his son to achieve greatness. History tells us that Leopold forced Mozart Junior to practice for many hours a day even before he had reached school age.

It has been estimated that by the time Mozart was six he had already spent about 4000 hours studying music.

Perhaps a modern-day equivalent to Mozart’s father would be someone like Richard Williams, father of legendary American tennis champions Serena and Venus Williams. Upon deciding tennis was the way out of the ‘ghetto’, Williams Sr. pushed his daughters day after day from a young age in his relentless quest for them to become world champions.

Classical music experts have noted that many of Mozart’s childhood compositions are mostly rearrangements of other (older) composers’ works. Not being experts in classical music – or any music for that matter – we can’t comment, but if true that would further undermine the enduring myth about the great composer being an innate genius who could rely solely on his natural talent and who hardly needed to practice.

We found that nine out of ten biographies of geniuses reveal forgotten or previously unmentioned examples of intelligence-enhancing techniques and/or technologies these individuals employed on their path to greatness.

Traditionally, IQ has been perceived as a genetic trait in much the same way an individual’s height or body type is perceived – in other words a fixed trait, or state, and therefore (thought to be) something that could never be altered.

In recent years, however, there has been an explosion of new scientific studies, which make a mockery of that assumption. These show that cognitive training, whether by mental techniques or brain enhancement technologies, can definitely deliver intelligence-boosting effects.

Certainly, you need some natural aptitude to excel in most facets of life – be it mental, physical or artistic – but if genius was simply a matter of inheriting good genes, then many more of us would be geniuses.

What if there are faster and easier ways to learn and study than the modi operandi currently being taught in mainstream education systems?

GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ is the ultimate treatise on accelerated learning methods. Written by novelists, filmmakers and independent researchers James Morcan & Lance Morcan with a foreword by leading scientist Dr. Takaaki Musha, this book 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.

Renowned geniuses examined include Apple founder Steve Jobs who as a 19-year-old began practising an ancient discipline that activated previously dormant parts of his brain; Albert Einstein who came up with his great theory of relativity while using a rare mental practice; Kim Peek (the real ‘Rain Man’) who could speed read any book in five minutes flat with total comprehension; Indian mathematical mastermind Srinivasa Ramanujan who, although untrained, created extraordinary formulas that left academics gobsmacked; Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart who composed entire pieces while in a specific altered state of mind.

Among the discoveries shared with readers 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.

“The knowledge of all things is possible” –Leonardo da Vinci

Other genius techniques of the elite

The Orphan Trilogy covers numerous advanced learning methods – Baroque music being one. This form of classical music is played to our orphans from when they are babies in the womb right through their childhood.

Baroque music and classical – especially the works of Mozart – has been shown to aid students when learning new things or recalling information.

In The Orphan Factory, book two in our trilogy, the orphans lie in enclosed flotation tanks, also known as isolation tanks. This is called sensory deprivation. Brainwaves are altered while in this deeply relaxed state, making the floating participants very receptive to new information.

We explore this and other advanced learning methods in our book THE ORPHAN CONSPIRACIES: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy.

Here’s an excerpt from the book:

The ingredients of real-world flotation sessions are simply water and salt, and the individual floats alone for about an hour inside the tank.

Celebrities known to have used such flotation tanks include Robin Williams, John Lennon, Jeff Bridges and Susan Sarandon. William Hurt, the star of Altered States, a 1980 feature film about isolation tanks, is another celebrity said to have practiced sensory deprivation in his private life.

Various sports teams, including the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys have also used flotation tanks, as have Olympians such as American track star and nine-time gold medal-winner Carl Lewis.

There are references to chess throughout the trilogy. Our orphans play rapid-fire matches known as Lightning Chess in which entire games are completed in 10 minutes or less. This is based on the theory that by playing the board game from a young age, certain parts of a child’s brain develop quicker than normal, especially areas relating to strategy. Playing Lightning Chess and multiple games simultaneously once again relates to thinking so fast that the conscious mind must yield to the superior subconscious.

And finally, a mysterious substance known as Ormus is given to the orphans every day at the Pedemont Orphanage. By ingesting it, the children activate their entire DNA/RNA cellular system, which not only unlocks their physical body’s true potential, but also stimulates their conscious, subconscious and unconscious minds.

Often referred to as White Gold or White Gold Powder, Ormus is a real substance discovered by science several decades ago. As it has been said to balance both hemispheres of the brain and therefore allow for whole brain learning, some believe Ormus to be a natural (legal) version of the smart drug Bradley Cooper’s character took in the 2011 movie Limitless. Studies have proven whole brain learning is the ideal state for gaining new knowledge. (See Chapter 9 for more on White Gold).

From the examples given in this chapter alone, it should now be clear there have always been individuals learning at speeds many or most mainstream educationalists would have us believe are not possible. From US presidents like JFK and Roosevelt, to CIA agents and great polymaths such as Leonardo da Vinci, to savants like Kim Peek and Daniel Tammet, history’s 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. Hence it remains a ‘conspiracy theory’. Even so, it’s pretty obvious that little known, accelerated learning techniques do exist.

But remember, we could be totally wrong about everything we wrote on the genius mindset here and in The Orphan Trilogy. Also, it’s probably time to admit neither of us has ever done an IQ test…For all we know we could both be as thick as bricks! In which case, you’d be wise not to drop out of university or spend any time researching the accelerated learning methods we’ve outlined in this chapter.
