Intelligence, Intuition and Creativity: Global Cognitive Theory

Molwick
Free sample

This book develops the concept of intelligence as an ability to form relationships. An essential element of knowledge management is the degree of confidence associated with the response of relational intelligence to a problem or a system request.

Also, the following definitions and common usages of the word intelligence are studied: general intelligence, factor g, intelligence quotients (IQ), multiple intelligences, emotional, and human intelligence types - male and female.

Other important aspects of this essay are:
• Characteristics of logic, intuition and language
• Creativity as a set of complex brain functions
• Gifted children and Mendelian genetics
• Influence of heredity and environment, or nature vs. nurture
• Experimental research with twins and families

Finally, a metaphor is presented as a comparison between possible concepts and indicators of intelligence and cars. To mention a few: power, speed, cargo, passengers, safety, autonomy, skill of the driver.

About the author

José Tiberius is the author of all the Molwick publisher books. With over 40 million visitors and two million books in PDF format, he is surely one of the most widely read authors in Spanish of scientific essays in the current millennium.

There are more than 20000 quotes to Jose's scientific and literary works, where his 15 books on theoretical physics, theory of evolution, quantitative genetics, cognitive theory, the philosophy of science, metaphysics and children's stories have been translated into English, French, Italian and Portuguese. Many of these quotes - to all these different fields - come from universities, projects done by university students and blogs created by teaching professionals and educational specialists.

When a witch proposes theories that involve a paradigm shift, she should be judged neither by the Inquisition nor by her specific academic education, no matter How Big it might be, but for the logical consistency and empirical testing of the new ideas. Otherwise, we will be lead into the classic ad wominen, hominen or whominen fallacy.

“One of the most important books I’ve ever read—an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.” – Bill Gates

“Hans Rosling tells the story of ‘the secret silent miracle of human progress’ as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly.” —Melinda Gates

"Factfulness by Hans Rosling, an outstanding international public health expert, is a hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases." - Former U.S. President Barack Obama

Factfulness: The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts.

When asked simple questions about global trends—what percentage of the world’s population live in poverty; why the world’s population is increasing; how many girls finish school—we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.

In Factfulness, Professor of International Health and global TED phenomenon Hans Rosling, together with his two long-time collaborators, Anna and Ola, offers a radical new explanation of why this happens. They reveal the ten instincts that distort our perspective—from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version of us and them) to the way we consume media (where fear rules) to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse).

Our problem is that we don’t know what we don’t know, and even our guesses are informed by unconscious and predictable biases.

It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think. That doesn’t mean there aren’t real concerns. But when we worry about everything all the time instead of embracing a worldview based on facts, we can lose our ability to focus on the things that threaten us most.

Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and moving stories, Factfulness is an urgent and essential book that will change the way you see the world and empower you to respond to the crises and opportunities of the future.

“This book is my last battle in my life-long mission to fight devastating ignorance...Previously I armed myself with huge data sets, eye-opening software, an energetic learning style and a Swedish bayonet for sword-swallowing. It wasn’t enough. But I hope this book will be.” Hans Rosling, February 2017.

The Freakonomics of math—a math-world superstar unveils the hidden beauty and logic of the world and puts its power in our hands

The math we learn in school can seem like a dull set of rules, laid down by the ancients and not to be questioned. In How Not to Be Wrong, Jordan Ellenberg shows us how terribly limiting this view is: Math isn’t confined to abstract incidents that never occur in real life, but rather touches everything we do—the whole world is shot through with it.

Math allows us to see the hidden structures underneath the messy and chaotic surface of our world. It’s a science of not being wrong, hammered out by centuries of hard work and argument. Armed with the tools of mathematics, we can see through to the true meaning of information we take for granted: How early should you get to the airport? What does “public opinion” really represent? Why do tall parents have shorter children? Who really won Florida in 2000? And how likely are you, really, to develop cancer?

How Not to Be Wrong presents the surprising revelations behind all of these questions and many more, using the mathematician’s method of analyzing life and exposing the hard-won insights of the academic community to the layman—minus the jargon. Ellenberg chases mathematical threads through a vast range of time and space, from the everyday to the cosmic, encountering, among other things, baseball, Reaganomics, daring lottery schemes, Voltaire, the replicability crisis in psychology, Italian Renaissance painting, artificial languages, the development of non-Euclidean geometry, the coming obesity apocalypse, Antonin Scalia’s views on crime and punishment, the psychology of slime molds, what Facebook can and can’t figure out about you, and the existence of God.

Ellenberg pulls from history as well as from the latest theoretical developments to provide those not trained in math with the knowledge they need. Math, as Ellenberg says, is “an atomic-powered prosthesis that you attach to your common sense, vastly multiplying its reach and strength.” With the tools of mathematics in hand, you can understand the world in a deeper, more meaningful way. How Not to Be Wrong will show you how.

This book includes volumes V and VI of Global Physics.

Among the most important aspects of Global Dynamics we can highlight the following:
• The existence of a constant speed of light only within its natural system, immersed in the three-dimensional Euclidean space of Greek metrics.
• Electromagnetic energy cannot exist without its 3D reticular structure support or, better said, gravity or tension of longitudinal curvature.
• The speed of light is additive with respect to that of the natural system of reference through which it moves.
• The distinction between physics velocity and abstract or conventional velocity, such as the velocity of two objects separating.
• The non-relativity of time and space within the scientific and objective scope of reality.

The Global Gravity Law deserves special mention for implying a different explanation for the predictions of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity by means of a small adjustment to Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation. I am referring to the effect of the gravitational lens, the gravitational redshift of light and the precession of the perihelion of Mercury.

While Einstein’s Theory of Relativity uses kinetic energy to alter space-time and balance the planetary orbits, Global Physics finds an additional force or second component of atractis cause. It is due to the global or kinetic ether (strings, quantum foam or space-time with mechanical properties) also adjusted by kinetic energy, to explain the physical reality without altering it.
