Intelligence and Survivability

December 15, 2008 at 10:11 pm Leave a comment

Problem-solving skills rely first of all on the definition of the problem.  That’s the major reason IQ tests vary from unreliable to meaningless.  Ascribing value to absolute statements in a relative world seems at best suspect.  And at least in one way “intelligence” comes out the loser–because it’s utterly dependent on a [perceived] status quo.

…And believe it or not, a depression should be a subset of the problem just described.  Bets were on at mid-century that this was going to be a Rome-burning, unless current leaders relied on holocaust to cement and prove power, all retreating to hardened bunkers and hopefully wait out the Gotterdamerung.
