90 to 95 percent of intelligence is of the animal kind. Only 2 to 5 percent is of the human kind.

“The reality is if you’re 20 percent better than other people, they envy you and try to kill you with nails and hammers. But if you’re 200 percent or 300 percent better, they’re just going to leave you alone. That’s us.” (Hideto Tomabechi)

A friend told me about this guy that increases breasts and deprograms cult victims with sound technology. Googled it and found an interview with Hideto Tomabechi:

“Many famous researchers – like Roger Schank, my first adviser – have said that 90 to 95 percent of intelligence is of the animal kind. Only 2 to 5 percent is of the human kind. We have not yet [been able to create even] the animal [level] of intelligence. Sony’s Aibo isAibo & dogs not as smart as your dog. Maybe that could take five to 10 years. We don’t call that AI (Artificial Intelligence); the rest – the 2 or 3 percent – that’s what we call AI. Hard-core AI researchers, like me, have never given up on it and are still trying to tackle this 2 or 3 percent.”

I guess integrating our “zoointeligences” and “zoodrives” can make us stronger and better. We become better humans by becoming aware of and accepting our heritage too. Synergy, not struggle.

Emotional intelligence, triune brain (reptilian, mammalian, neocortex), cellular information processing, sociobiology, 7% words – 93% nonverbal – makes some sense, doesn’t it? :)

Poor people gamble three times more money than better-off people

with one comment

That’s in America, poor meaning under $10,000 annual revenue per household, well-off meaning over $50.000 annually. Saw it on a Viasat program about instincts, found a bit more here:

  • The report found gambling enterprises in the US were as common as fast food outlets as Americans splurged $600 billion a year on gambling, more than on cars or groceries.
  • The report found that 5.4 million Americans were pathological or problem gamblers, half of whom were youths, [..] more than 15 million Americans were considered at-risk gamblers, meaning they have high potential of becoming problem gamblers.
  • “In addition to the working poor, many elderly Americans fall into the low-income categories,” Senator Wolf said. “The casinos and riverboats and video parlours and even the State-sponsored lotteries have become the predators of our society, preying on those most vulnerable.”

Uneducated people may need leaders, but not leaders that exploit and keep them stupid.

Scaming uneducated people is like drug raping a woman or the luring of a kid by a pedophile. But it’s economiks. It doesn’t apply. I found out this, and it explains A LOT about it.
