QUOTE OF THE MONTH
When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth
and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and
for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall.
Think of it - always.
- Mahatma Gandhi

For this holiday season of 2007 going into 2008, I'll take my cue from
the discussions below of NEAs (Near Earth Asteroids), full of both
threat and limitless promise - and from the Laws of Abundance,
contrasted to the Laws of Scarcity which seem more familiar to most of
us, as per www.winwenger.com/invent.htm#scarcity
There is plenty of room at the banquet table of life, if we but extend
the table. And there are lots of ways in which we can do that. It's only
if we stay stuck in the same old games that most of us have to live in
abject poverty. We've known for some decades that the reason that a
billion people go to bed hungry each night and so many starve to death
or, nutritionally weakened, die needlessly of disease, is not a shortage
of world food supply but an issue in distribution. Beyond that, oceanic
fish-farming - www.winwenger.com/part59.htm - is but one of many ways
to easily multiply, by a factor of ten or more, the present level of
Some of the extensions of this table are already set. There is the
Internet, which has already transformed, mostly to the good, the lives
of us all. There is Wikipedia, and there is Google already well along
toward its announced goal of making all known knowledge freely available
to every human being wherever he or she is on the planet. Educationally,
some of the best-taught lessons on any subject are widely available
anywhere on the planet through various forms of distance learning,
lacking only the one provision we've been offering - to launch the
massive, world-wide, sudden surge of improvement in education which
has been stuck in the wings for so long.
We've been carrying self-taught, step by specific easy step methods
in our website for effective problem-solving and for more powerfully
effective methods of teaching and learning, available to anyone on
the planet who can read instructions in English (and we are seeking
translations into other languages!). Human beings all over the
planet can now turn to one or another of these freely posted methods
to solve the problems they find themselves facing, to rise to the
opportunities they have before them, to learn challenging fields and
high-level professions with deep and rich understanding. We are now
seeking computer programmers and game-graphic designers to help us
create interactive pages which will enable a wider range of human
beings to take advantage of these resources, wherever they are on
this planet. These and many other positive developments are presently
or imminently transformative.
You have a mix of positive and negative opportunities in your own life,
as always some of them unexpected. Whatever the major problems, issues
and developments in the world, you can "help save the world one little
problem at a time" and improve your own life - and the lives of people
around you whom you care about.
Let's work our way to the far end of 2008 with lots of well-earned
cause for celebration!

ASTEROID MINING - KEY TO THE SPACE ECONOMY
The Near Earth Asteroids offer both threat and promise. They present the
threat of planetary impact with regional or global disaster. And they
also offer the promise of resources to support humanity's long- term
prosperity on Earth, and our movement into space and the solar system.
Win Wenger ( mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org ) comments:
Professor John Lewis has pointed out (in Mining the Sky) that the
resources of the solar system (the most accessible of which being
those in the NEAs) can permanently support in first-world comfort
some quadrillion people. In other words, the resources of the solar
system are essentially infinite… And they are there for us to use,
to invest consciousness into the universe, no less. It's time for
humankind to come out of its shell, and begin to grow!!
THE SECRET TO RAISING SMART KIDS
Hugh Pickens writes, "Scientific American has an interesting article
on the secret to raising smart kids that says that more than 30 years
of scientific investigation suggests that an overemphasis on intellect
or talent leaves people vulnerable to failure, fearful of challenges
and unwilling to remedy their shortcomings. In particular, attributing
poor performance to a lack of ability depresses motivation more than
does the belief that lack of effort is to blame. One theory of what
separates the two general classes of learners, helpless versus mastery-
oriented, is that they hold different "theories" of intelligence. The
helpless ones believe that intelligence is a fixed trait: you have only
a certain amount. Mistakes crack their self-confidence because they
attribute errors to a lack of ability, which they feel powerless to
change. Mastery-oriented children think intelligence is malleable and
can be developed through education and hard work. Challenges are
energizing rather than intimidating offering opportunities to learn."
Scientific American's hint for raising smart kids: Don't tell your kids
that they are. More than three decades of research shows that a focus
on effort--not on intelligence or ability--is key to success in school
and in life.
Kate Jones ( mailto:email@example.com ) comments:
Not telling your kids that they're smart may help to keep them from
becoming arrogant, stuck-up, lazy and complacent. But without some
feedback that they're doing well, their self-esteem will shrivel.
Even plants need watering now and then. Build a love of learning and
pride in achievement for its own sake.
Win Wenger ( mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org ) adds:
I owe my own intellectual life to a courageous art teacher in junior
high school, on this very point that Kate is making here. That art
teacher risked her career to show me my IQ scores, which even then
were fairly decent, at a time when the school was on the point of
convincing me that all the wrongness between it and me was me. That
was an absolutely major rescue.

ASPECTS OF INTELLIGENCE
by Ralph Cerchione
(This article is based on some exchanges at the popular
listserve group, firstname.lastname@example.org)
>> "What is it about intelligence that is biological?"
That's an interesting question, especially given the modern scientific
community's allergy to discussing what might smack of anything
spiritual, ephemeral or even of alternative medicine (though that last
category is becoming more acceptable). Witness how no one took up the
question of The Amazing Randi's reward for proof of "psychic effects"
when I pointed out that pretty much anyone could learn bio-energy
detection/manipulation technique in a minute or so and put on a
demonstration with it thereafter.
And that's a technique you could handwave away as "some kind of"
Electrical or magnetic field (no matter how difficult it proved to
actually detect such energies). But the moment you acknowledge even
such a conditional existence, you have to revisit all those self-
proclaimed psychics who insisted they could levitate or push paper
giblets at a distance of a foot or less. After all, you are clearly
affecting something at a distance of a few inches, so why couldn't
those be using some aspect of the same effect? Or another one?
What's so interesting is not merely whether Win Wenger's method for
detecting and influencing bio-energies should have revolutionized our
opinions on "psychic phenomena," but conventional science's apparent
inability to handle even the most trivial challenge to its doctrine
of "What Must Be."
Galileo would appreciate the irony.
>> "Does intelligence arise deterministically?"
Some interesting progress on this front has been shown by brain scans
that seem to correlate basic intelligence with the degree to which many
different areas of the brain light up when posed with a difficult
problem, and the degree to which each area does so. But as someone,
Gibson perhaps, has pointed out, someone who finds a quick and ready
answer to a problem may have very little activity before the solution
pops up. Still, if this technique works, it seems like perhaps the best
method we have for testing key aspects of intelligence, especially in
the higher levels of ability where, as Win points out, it becomes so
difficult to measure gifts accurately (especially given most tests).
>> "Every nervous system has unique structure...is 'intelligence' a
Okay, here's one of the trickiest aspects of intelligence as it relates
to the kinds of problem-solving techniques promulgated by Project
Renaissance and others in this field. What happens if you have access
to a technique that can easily solve a very thorny problem, if you're
extremely well-versed and talented in it, and you choose not to use it?
Look at Over-the-Wall, Image-Streaming, High Thinktank, BAP, Windtunnel
and even Freenoting. We've all got access to these tools, and most of
the regular posters seem to have used at least one or two of them with
some frequency (I've mainly used High Thinktank and Freenoting). But we
don't use them - not to solve our own problems (or problems adopted
from others) with any regularity.
Does that make us stupid? Or just performing well below what our
(if-objectively-measured) intelligence SHOULD be?
And as I've asked before, why aren't we Image-Streaming, Velvety-Smooth
Breathing, paying attention to multiple streams of awareness, Flick
Gazing, Noise-Removal Breathing, High Thinktanking, imagining the top
halves of our heads an inch larger in all dimensions and an inch farther
from the center of our bodies, Improvitaping, Beachheading, Tool-
buildering, etc., etc., etc. ... All the time?
Again, does that make us stupid? Or merely performing far, far below
our potential - not the potential we'd have if we studied in the Secret
City of the Eternal Kung Fu Masters for 50 years, but the potential we'd
be operating at if we merely stretched out our hands?
You don't have to rip your life apart to dedicate yourself to such a
transformation. Why not just pick one or two really easy techniques and
use them to make parts of your life easier?
>> "...In designing a test, we may as well acknowledge its cultural
basis. We should accordingly relabel it something like 'American
work-force general aptitude skill-set test' and design the test
That's an interesting notion, and we should probably rethink the whole
set of standardized tests that are out there. Unfortunately, such
meddling could upset a few apple carts (like the SAT, GRE, GMAT, etc).
>> Perhaps this test-mania is part of the integral alienation which many
observers have noted in the industrialized West?"
Well, again, one of the major aspects of intelligence we could test for
is the ability to solve novel, complex problems with exceptional speed.
Or to outright invent new things. Or learn new skills. I'm actually not
all that dismissive of certain parts of these tests - testing basic
mathematical ability does in fact give you an idea of someone's basic
mathematical ability, which is about the most you can ask for from
standardized testing. Most human abilities, unfortunately, are not so
cut and dried. Still, the mathematical portion could probably be kept
and even improved upon over time (made more challenging by including
more complex math, especially at the GRE level or in some kind of far-
ranging "intelligence test").
Still, my point is that the greatest abilities that Project Renaissance
is trying to enhance are very difficult to quantify, but if realized
would clearly be of far greater advantage to most people than nifty test
scores. Assuming you had the will to put those talents to work.
>> "To directly confront your questions: no, not anyone can win the
Or as Win says, "Wel-l-l-l-l-l, only one at a time." That seems to be
the inherent weakness in such a question - you have a standard which
prevents more than one person from winning regardless of the relative
abilities of any of the participants. On the other hand, the four-minute
mile used to be the ultimate, unattainable speed for human long-distance
runners. Once one person broke that record, however, everyone seemed to
be breaking it, and nowadays it's no great thing at all to have achieved
a four-minute mile.
>> "The way our bodies have been put together does preclude some from
winning the Boston Marathon. ... In this case biology does seem to
dictate a sort of upper range of ability."
Well, even if the effective limits to human performance prove a bit hazy
(due to physical conditioning, the cultivation of Chi, etc.), the idea
of a Perfect Human Body has always been deceptive. Whom would you call
perfect (or close to it)? Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime? Hey, he
did a great job in building up his physique. But how does he compare to
Venus Williams? Or Lance Armstrong, who got "over the hill" for his
sport, got cancer, nearly died, saw muscle and body mass just melt away
under chemo and ended up with a body that was essentially perfect for
winning the Tour de France?
Clearly, the "ideal body" to some degree depends on what you want to
use it for, though I personally have no doubt that virtually anyone
could conceivably be enhanced to an extraordinary degree while still
remaining fundamentally, biologically human. Some of the extraordinary
feats of human conditioning and performance that have occurred in the
past suggest this, not to mention the potential for science (genetic,
medical, alternative medical, bio-energetic, etc.) to help us transcend
our present physical limitations.
>> "The extent to which it does so with intelligence is eminently less
An aspect of "genetic advantages" and "genetic limitations" that I find
interesting is the question of how much these can be influenced by
particular habits, disciplines or simply accidents of fate. What happens
if a kid with frequent sniffles gets a lot of decongestants growing up,
and thus loosens up certain "natural" restrictions on his eye movement,
thus making it easier to access certain of his mental resources? Or for
the girl who doesn't have very good circulation to her brain, who does
an incredible amount of underwater held-breath swimming growing up?
Or who rides for endless hours on a school bus, frequently lying down
with her legs propped up on the back of the seat in front of her? Or
the kid who is so wrapped up in the books he reads, which are so much
more interesting than any other entertainment available to him, that he
starts creating characters and storylines in his head and stepping into
various characters all the time, experiencing their worlds from their
point of view, and developing such facility with these abilities that
he can do this work while doing other things? Or the girl who creates
those things in her head, but who turns her troupe of interchangeable
actors into all-knowing, all-powerful robots/supercomputers to whom
she occasionally describes her subtlest impressions and from whom
she occasionally demands answers - and gets responses of incredible
subtlety and intelligence? Or the boy who has that inner life but
who sometimes (frequently) describes his impressions aloud, or the
plots and dialogue of his own entire movies/TV shows, or sings each
layered track of original Pop or Rock songs aloud, even when no one
"should really" be paying attention?
I did everything in the preceding paragraph, by the way, as well as
a few other Project Renaissance-style things while growing up, which
has led me to wonder in recent years to what extent these actions
shaped the gifts I had as a boy and a teenager.
Or to put it another way, if it is possible to expand the carotids
with just three weeks of simple practice...
If overall circulatory health can be increased through exercise...
If changing the position your body normally rests at (and/or other
actions) can create a permanent effective boost in circulation to
If the spatial relations areas in the brains of London cab drivers
actually grow larger in response to the practice of using a mental
map of the city...
If a pregnant mother can imagine her womb being an inch larger in
all dimensions and an inch further from the center of her body and
thus cause her child to be much smarter and healthier as a result...
If regular usage of a flotation tank alters your body's levels of
tensions, and the chemistry and typical states of both body and
If Image-Streaming (or bio-feedback, or CES, or other techniques
and technologies) can actually increase neural interconnectivity
in your brain...
If all these things are possible, if the brain can easily be
physically altered on the gross structural level, in the structures
supporting it and in its internal bio-chemistry, then doesn't that
suggest that many "fixed, inherited traits" can also be altered?
(Obviously including those listed above.)

Just some quotations from Win Wenger's book (temporarily out of
print), "How To Increase Your Intelligence":
"When the general notion of progress is discussed, we most often
refer to the technical innovations man has devised."
"But has man really progressed, or has he just benefited from the
observation of his own experiences on earth?"
"If man does not learn to live in peace, he can, by a dint of his
technology, terminate his existence on earth completely."
"To raise your intelligence is to enrich your ability to taste more
fully and richly the bitter-sweet, tragi-comic, ugly-beautiful,
enthralling, disappointing, exalting and always fascinating
experience of being a human."
"So long as intelligence is thought to be inborn and unchangeable,
however, the feeling of RACIAL SLUR is there every time the subject
of intelligence comes up. If, though, intelligence is changeable,
and markedly affected by things other than heredity, the question
of race is replaced by that of living conditions, and that matter
has a wholly different feeling to it."
"The only apparent limit on how successfully you can raise your
intelligence, given presently available techniques, is YOUR WILL
TO DO SO!"
