. When you're
ignorant, or when you don't know something, the only way you realize that
you don't know something is when something happens that you're not
prepared for, and you don't have an answer, so you don't know how to
correctly react to that particular situation. But even then, you might not
even realize that you could have learned something valuable. Intelligence
is not just realizing your potential, it's also realizing your
vulnerabilities. Don't take what you know
for granted, and don't ever
underestimate the things you don't know. Intelligence is not a level of
achievement, it is a way of life. Levels are just temporary steps that
lead to greater and even larger steps, some of which have not yet been

intelligent really means. Enlightenment
will not guarantee intelligence. A good education that encourages learning
and a healthy environment are just two of the many influences that promote
Define the actions and the thought processes that are proven to produce the most positive
results that are based on a particular set of circumstances. And
these intelligent actions and thought processes have to be
relevant and used by society today so that everyone can see the
improvements and the positive outcomes and benefits that come
from these particular intelligent actions. This way everyone
can understand why these particular actions and thought
processes are viewed as being intelligent. Because what good is
having intelligence if you never use the intelligence in real
life to solve real problems. An IQ test only confirms a small
percentage of what is considered to be intelligence. So the only
way to truly measure a persons intelligence is to have them
solve real life problems and then have them explain their
methods clearly enough so that others can repeat the process.
Welcome to Defining Intelligence.
If a person does not have the necessary information and
knowledge that is needed to correctly analyze a problem, it is
nearly impossible for that person to understand how to calculate
the correct actions that are needed in order to solve that
problem. Even if a problem is right in front of a person it is
very unlikely that they will be able to comprehend that a
particular problem is even there without necessary information
and knowledge. Then a person will still have to understand that
particular information and knowledge in order to use it
effectively. So how will a person be able to recognize that
there is necessary information and
knowledge missing from their education? How do you convince a
person to see that there is a void of missing information and
knowledge when they don't have the necessary information and
knowledge in order for them to see that there is even a void?
This is why it is so extremely important to teach students early
and completely, especially the logic that is behind learning these
techniques, tools and skills that are needed to acquire
. So what is this
necessary information and knowledge? What are the techniques,
tools and skills that are needed? That is exactly what we are
going to find out, and exactly what we are going to teach.

Buck Stops Here

experienced enough to know what having a child with enhanced
abilities means. Or do they know what extra attention is needed
in order to not waste these enhanced abilities on tedious or
irrelevant actions, like
memorizing things that do not benefit
. It's like having a very powerful and fast
computer, but it's being wasted because you are only using it to
play video games. We are the only species on the planet that can
be distracted by our own stupidity. Intelligent species? Not
yet. Remember, enhanced abilities does not guarantee incredible
achievements, it only implies that there's a potential, which we
all have, that's if we all get the special attention that we
need. The more I study education, the more I see what's needed.
The more you learn, the more you learn what you didn't know.

when what they are really doing is making an
accusation and a judgment in the form of a question, because they assume
that they know the answer. So it's not a question, but an accusation and a
judgment without a trial, or without debate. Presumptuous questions can
either be balanced or unbalanced. Unbalanced questions ask questions only
from the point of view of one side of an argument. For example, an
interrogator might ask “’Do you favor the death penalty for persons
convicted of murder?”’ This question assumes that the person’s only point
of view in the situation is that a person who is convicted must either get
the death penalty or not. The second type of presumptuous question is
balanced question. This is when the interrogator uses opposite questions
to make the witness believe that the question is balanced when the reality
is that it is not. For example, the interrogator would ask, “’Do you favor
life in prison, without the possibility of parole?” This type of question
may seem balanced when in reality it is still influencing the person to
discuss life in prison and no other choice.

they are simply brought up badly and thus become a bad person.
That's why most people in
have very little education as
well as very poor reading and writing skills. So people are not
born ignorant, they are just
brought up ignorantly

are stupid. You can have a
(Intelligence Quotient) and
still be ignorant
explain this lets first define ignorance. Though the definition
of ignorance is usually defined a ‘ person who is ‘Uneducated in
general, lacking knowledge or sophistication, Unaware because of
a lack of relevant information or knowledge’. That is the more
common definition that I do not totally agree with. I would like
to define ignorance as a ‘ person who lacks a common sense that
keeps oneself from
separating opinion from fact
, a person who
dismisses information solely based on preference, a person who
assumes without questioning, and a person who has difficulty
formulating information in order to obtain a logical answer.
This to me is a more accurate meaning of the word ignorance. I
wonder if I could have the dictionary updated to include this
definition or just replace the old definition with the one above, unless
of course there is a better word in the dictionary for what is described above. Now some of you are still wondering how
can you have a high IQ and still be ignorant. To me an IQ test
is not a measure of intelligence but more of a test to measure
ones brain function. If a persons IQ is high then their ability
to process information and access their memory is exceptional,
thus their brain is functioning properly. A person with a high
IQ should be nurtured very carefully so that their ability is
not stifled and at the same time their brain is not overwhelmed
. A person with a low IQ will be treated
the same way, but they will need extra special attention to get
their brain functioning like a person with a high IQ. So if you
use my definition of ignorance you will find that there are
people with high IQ’s who are ignorant. They can process
information, but they still have trouble with separating opinion
from fact and sometimes can still dismiss information solely
based on preference. I have not yet met an intelligent person. I
have met some really smart people but I would not consider them
First, you have to admit that
you can be wrong about things.
Second, you have to admit that you
don't know enough about yourself and the world around you. Then and Only
then will you be able to effectively learn to increase your understanding
about yourself and the world around you. There is one extremely important
thing that you need to commit to, and that is learning. Otherwise, you
will be ignorant till the day you die.
If you don't know how
ignorant you are every day, then that's another day that you didn't learn
anything. And those days can easily and quickly turn into years.
Too many people just pretend that they know enough
about themselves and the world. That means that millions of people are
living in a fantasy world

Almost totally oblivious of the reality of this world, or the impact that
they have on themselves and other people. And the only way for people to
escape this quasi reality
, is to learn what
things in life are reality. Things that have been proven, things that have
been experienced. And one of the most important things that a person needs
to do first is to admit how ignorant they are about themselves, and how
ignorant they are about the world around them. And the only way to know
how ignorant you are, is to learn and study knowledge that would reveal
how ignorant you are, because ignorance does not reveal itself. They say
that being stupid doesn't hurt, like ignorance is bliss. That's a lie,
because being stupid does hurt, you just don't know it because you're
stupid. And the only way to know how much you're hurting yourself and
other people, is to learn why. And one of the best ways to learn is by
reading. But you can't read just anything because that would also be
stupid. You have to seek out the exact knowledge that you need that would
help increase your understanding of yourself and the world around you. You
have to take learning seriously, because everything depends on it,

just revealing how ignorant someone's behavior is, not all behaviors are
bad, just the behaviors that cause damage and suffering. Some people take
offense to having their ignorance revealed, like they feel bad for finding
out that they were wrong about something, or having someone find out about
a horrible secret they have been hiding, something embarrassing, something
shameful. So Why do some people see learning as something negative and
tedious?I didn't want to be the one to tell you this
, but since no one
else has, I guess I'm stuck with this job of having to inform you. Don't
blame the messenger, because no one is to blame, until tomorrow that is.
Maybe you will forget what you have learned today, so maybe I will have to
remind you again tomorrow, I hope not. I hope we keep learning. A better
world is waiting for us, but it will not wait forever. And this is not
just about our time, our flash in the pan, this is about all time, and the
time that trillions upon trillions of future generations who will either
have to endure life or have the pleasure to enjoy life, this choice is
ours now, and tomorrow. I choose enjoy. No one should ever have to suffer
and endure from other peoples behavior. No one. Learning needs to be the
new fad, the new relish. There is tremendous amount of pleasure that comes
from learning. Everyone should be benefiting from learning. But when some
people can't learn because they don't have access, or they refuse to
learn, then they haven't learned the most important thing about learning,

smarter, only because you stopped learning or you didn't have

You can't be any more then you know,
but you can definitely be less then what you know, because you

the more you know the better. But you have to choose your
knowledge wisely, and you have to learn something new everyday,
if not, then you will have wasted a day. And if you miss too
many days, your development and progress will almost come to a
complete stop. You have to understand the potential that
knowledge gives you, but you also have to understand that
potential energy comes from action, and that action is called
learning. But you have to know what to learn
and when to learn it, otherwise, information and knowledge
becomes fragmented, and unable to be utilized collectively. So
you will not know enough to piece together a full understanding
of yourself, or the world.

knowledge is knowledge that is time and place
specific, meaning that you don't really need that particular
knowledge and information until a special set of circumstances
arises. So this type of knowledge will only benefit you when you
need to perform a particular function, like surgery, or farming,
or driving a truck, and so on. Almost every school on the planet
offers this type of knowledge. This is the main reason why
people are ignorant. Because they have been denied knowledge and
information that would give them intelligence and awareness. So
they are just educated enough to be mindless slaves who are
easily manipulated and controlled. Though many people will
immediately say this is false, they will have a very difficult
time explaining why they believe this is false. And this is when
the realization happens, or, this is when they enter a state of
denial. So what valuable knowledge and information is missing
from education, and what knowledge and information is missing
from the news and our media outlets. They are supposedly paid to
inform us of our reality, but they are not doing this
effectively or efficiently. In fact they are
doing the opposite
most of the time.

Genius in one area of your life does
not necessary mean that you're a genius in other areas of your
life. You've learn this, but not that. Anyone is capable of a
genius action, but that doesn't make that person a genius. Just
because an insane person shows signs of genius does not mean
that there is a connection or a correlation between genius and
insanity. That's like saying that because a person did something

because they are two separate things. Two things are not
necessarily connected just because they share the same space.

. When we narrowly define things, we never see the
whole picture. So we never fully understand, or, do we know the
correct actions to take. So a label is just a starting point,
because it doesn't fully explain the contents. When we give a
label or use a label, we must also give the instructions and the
reasons, otherwise, a label could be more dangerous then
helpful. Don't judge a book by it's cover is also an incomplete
sentence. What book? Who's cover? Why this book?
Just because someone
has more knowledge then you, or more schooling then you, this
does not guarantee that this particular person is smarter the
you. It mostly comes down to who has the right information at
the right time, and if you are doing more harm then good. So
don't ever underestimate your value, and don't ever
underestimate the value of learning, because the more you know
the better your odds will be at making better decisions. So
choose what to learn and when to learn it very wisely. Choosing
correctly what to eat everyday has many benefits, and choosing
what to learn everyday has even more benefits.
Being smart is that ability to have good relationships, to
listen well, to treat people fairly with honestly. Being smart
is that ability to control emotions, to make good decisions, to
have good awareness.
Having more valuable knowledge that gives a greater
understanding does not mean that you will stop making mistakes,
but mistakes will be less frequently.
It's impossible to know everything, but it is possible to know
most of the important things. When smart people don't know
something they have the knowledge and skills to learn what they
need to learn, thus they are good at solving problems and good
at making the best decisions. Being intelligent means you
actually seek to understand what you know and the way things
work. Being smart is having a good bullshit detector, or being
able to tell when someone is lying, and being able to
distinguish sense from nonsense. But you still may be
susceptible to falling into certain traps of falsehood or mind
manipulation. Being smart is being able to control and use
accomplish certain goals. Having extensive knowledge of the mind
and body, and how to use mind and body functions to achieve
goals, like last for days without food, or survive extreme cold
or heat without dying.
Knowledge is knowledge that accumulates over many months
or even years as you learn more. And as you learn more, you
increase your understanding of yourself and the world around
you. So you become more aware, and have more potential, and have
more abilities and more skills. Though specialized knowledge
shares the same function as accumulated knowledge, specialized
knowledge is limited to a specific need. Everyone needs a
foundation of knowledge and information
that provides them
with a full understanding of themselves and the world around
them. Intelligence is the goal.
Reading every encyclopedia wont make
you smart. Having a great
you smart either. Remembering mundane details might get you on a
meaningless game show like Jeopardy, but it does not mean that
you are smart or intelligent. It's not how much knowledge and
information you have, it's how effective and efficient you are
in using that knowledge and information to improve life. That is
truly what makes a person intelligent. So it's not what you
have, or how much you have, it's how you use what you have that
ends up being the most important aspect. That should be the top
priority of every educational institution on the planet, but
it's not. But for BK101, this is the top priority. This website
may have some of the worlds most valuable knowledge and
information, but if you never learn how to formulate knowledge
and information correctly, and use it effectively and

Evolution of Human Intelligence
is closely tied to the
of the human brain
and to the origin of language. The timeline of human evolution spans
approximately 7 million years, from the separation of the Pan genus until
the emergence of behavioral modernity by 50,000 years ago. The first 3
million years of this timeline concern Sahelanthropus, the following 2
million concern Australopithecus and the final 2 million span the history
of actual human genus in the Paleolithic era. Many traits of human
intelligence, such as empathy, theory of mind, mourning, ritual, and the
use of symbols and tools, are apparent in great apes although in less
sophisticated forms than found in humans, such as great ape language.

The individual understands or knows how to do something. However,
demonstrating the skill or knowledge requires concentration. It may be
broken down into steps, and there is heavy conscious involvement in
executing the new skill.Unconscious competence
The individual has had so much practice with a skill that it has become
"second nature" and can be performed easily. As a result, the skill can be
performed while executing another task. The individual may be able to
teach it to others, depending upon how and when it was learned.

IQ scores are predictive in measuring the ability of a person to
have more occupational success, higher income, and better
physical and mental health. But higher IQ scores do not
determine the value of success, it only determines the increased
chances of success. But you have to
an iq test does not define success. This is more then just
getting a job, it's knowing that the work you do is valuable.
It's not about how much money you made, it's how you impacted
the world. Did you use and abuse the world and make everyone pay
for it? Or did you improve the world that produced measurable
benefits for other people? Once you accurately measure the
inputs and outputs of a persons life, it paints a much clearer
picture about what real success is.

but now will learn from them and move on. So the next time you
want to call someone intelligent remember these qualities. You
should never call a child intelligent or gifted. You should
instead tell them that they have the abilities to be intelligent
or gifted. This way they will know that to be intelligent or
gifted is a life long process that is much more then a label
that someone gives you. If you find someone who considers
themselves to be intelligent then show them these definitions.
They should be able to prove these qualities, but a truly

to acquire all these qualities in order to one day possess them

Being intelligent is being able to
approach intellectual road blocks from new angles. Being
intelligent is the ability to borrow tools from one discipline
to solve problems in another. Being intelligent is having many
different hobbies that can lead to creative breakthroughs. Being
intelligent is being able to slow down multitasking, having one
project take center stage for a series of hours or days. Leaving
the other projects to linger in the margins of consciousness,
but still being able to take ideas from the projects at the
margins. Being intelligent is being able to think outside the
box, letting the mind wander and dream, processing new
information, making new connections, and developing new thinking
strategies.To determine how
dysfunctional you are you first have to determine how functional
. That's like trying to figure out
how smart you are,
which is not easy because intelligence is not totally defined
yet, with too much of your understanding being determined by your
own perception. The only way to determine intelligence is to
have an exact list of questions and problems that test your skills and
knowledge. How much intelligence does the IQ test really
determine? Very little because it's an overall test of skills and
knowledge and not an exact test of what makes a person
intelligent. Define intelligence, then define the test.

Smart and intelligent cannot be used to describe a person
unless you explain why. Smart and intelligent only describes a
particular action, an action that is known to be logical. That
was a smart thing to do, that was an intelligent thing to do. So
to say "That Person is Smart", you have to say why? Did they do
a smart thing, or is it they can do particular things that
require specialized knowledge? So in order to be smart or
intelligent you have to perform intelligent actions. So only
that particular action is smart and not necessarily the person
performing the action. But if you would like to be considered
smart then you would have to be known as the person who
performed the most intelligent actions. And to prove that you
would have to be extremely intelligent." Good luck...it's not a

Procedural memory guides the processes we perform and most frequently
resides below the level of conscious awareness. When needed, procedural
memories are automatically retrieved and utilized for the execution of the
integrated procedures involved in both cognitive and motor skills, from
tying shoes to flying an airplane to reading. Procedural memories are
accessed and used without the need for conscious control or attention.
Procedural memory is created through procedural learning or, repeating a

It's not so unusual to think
that there are similarities between a computer and a human
brain, after all, computers are made by humans. And the humans
who designed these computers have a high degree of knowledge
about language and logic. So your computer engineer and your
computer programmers possess a system of tools and language that
are very useful to educators. Teaching a computer has some of
the same instruction elements as teaching a human. The language,
the structure, the organizing, the processing, the allocating,
the actions and the desired outputs.
If people understood how a computer works, understood its
language and its
computational abilities, understood how the system works and
communicates, you can easily see similarities in its logic, logic
that was created by a human. To come up with a source code was understanding how we
learn. If you look at the whole computer as a engineering design, you see
effective ways to process information.

File System Fragmentation
is the tendency of a file system
to lay out the contents of files non-contiguously to allow in-place
modification of their contents. It is a special case of data
fragmentation. File system fragmentation increases disk head movement or
seek time, which are known to hinder throughput. In addition, file systems
cannot sustain unlimited fragmentation. The correction to existing
fragmentation is to reorganize files and free space back into contiguous
areas, a process called defragmentation.
is a phenomenon in which
used inefficiently, reducing capacity or performance and often both. The
exact consequences of fragmentation depend on the specific system of
storage allocation in use and the particular form of fragmentation. In
many cases, fragmentation leads to storage space being "wasted", and in
that case the term also refers to the wasted space itself. For other
systems (e.g. the FAT file system) the space used to store given data
(e.g. files) is the same regardless of the degree of fragmentation (from
none to extreme).
Emptying Disk Space
is a process that reduces the amount of
fragmentation. It does this by physically organizing the contents of the
mass storage device used to store files into the smallest number of
contiguous regions (fragments). It also attempts to create larger regions
of free space using compaction to impede the return of fragmentation. Some
defragmentation utilities try to keep smaller files within a single
directory together, as they are often accessed in sequence.
Defragmentation is advantageous and relevant to file systems on
electromechanical disk drives. The movement of the hard drive's read/write
heads over different areas of the disk when accessing fragmented files is
slower, compared to accessing the entire contents of a non-fragmented file
sequentially without moving the read/write heads to seek other fragments.

between processes, and package management. Running sets of ROS-based
processes are represented in a graph architecture where processing takes
place in nodes that may receive, post and multiplex sensor, control,
state, planning, actuator and other messages. Despite the importance of
reactivity and low latency in robot control, ROS, itself, is not a
real-time OS (RTOS), though it is possible to integrate ROS with real-time

More Similarities Between a Computer and the Human Brain
neural networks in computers are actually similar to the synapses and neurons
in the human brain. And the Integrated Circuits, or IC’s, of a
computer are also similar in design to synapses and neurons,
which are also either on or off. Humans have a processor similar
in design as a computer does. The similarities between a
computer and a human are uncanny. So in a sense we have actually
been, accidentally or indirectly, building a Human Operating
System, and in a way being totally unaware of these
will become teachers and not just
programmers. Of course the Human Operating System is not a new
idea. Just like many inventions and innovations in our past we
are just again realizing the true potential of our knowledge.

chemical means. The proper functioning of the brain depends on
many complicated chemical substances produced by brain cells."

A tremendous Leap Forward, but this
time we can actually see where we are going...
To say that the internet is the
reason for people being radicalized is very ignorant
, and a
dangerous lie. That
is like saying that phone lines radicalized people. People on
the internet did not click on an add and accidentally get
radicalized, oops my bad.
People don't seek out radicalized ideas. People are searching
for answers. And sometimes people come across the wrong
information at the wrong time. So books could radicalize people,
schools could radicalize people, religion could radicalize
people, TV could radicalize people, and people could radicalize
people. The internet is our savior. But it is not without
People misuse technology
. And people don't have enough
skills and knowledge to
accurately analyze information
. So don't blame the tools
moron. Blame our
and our irresponsible
Saying that the internet is radicalized people is like saying
that electricity is radicalizing people. Plus it's just stupid
to use the internet to say how bad the internet is. It's like
shooting someone with a gun just to say how dangerous a gun is.
Anything can be misused, that includes technology, that includes
money, that includes power. We don't blame power when a
politician commits a crime, we blame the person who is too
ignorant to use something effectively and efficiently. and
morally. When we improving education this ignorant behavior will
cease to exist, as well as all ignorant behavior.
"The internet helping people become
radicalized is like saying that too much freedom is the
radicalization. That's when they take away our freedoms,
then everyone gets punished, except for the people doing the
punishing of course."
There are many things involved that create
. People get radicalized by there experiences and
from the misinterpretation of information. Talk to any radical
and they will all have a story about when they experienced a
traumatic event that changed them, usually the death of family
or friends, and also knowing others who have lost people close
to them. All humans take to a cause, because they feel that they
have no other choices. People who start a
not radicals. They feel threatened, and they feel they have no
other choice but to fight. To blame this behavior on some
inanimate object is insane. I truly know that people want to
make a difference, and they want to stop this insane violence,
and to stop this insane behavior, but we can't attack things
that are doing more good then harm. You want to dispute the
horrible schools we have, then I'm right there with you. But if
you want to attack the technology that people use to share
knowledge and information, and if you want to attack peoples
right to communicate, and you want to attack peoples right to
inform themselves, then you will create more anger and many more
problems. Millions of people have signed petitions already
committing themselves to
protecting the internet
. We don't want to attack our ability
to communicate just because some people ignorantly believe that
is the cause of our problems. And because of the internet, you
will not be able to hide that ignorance. So my suggestion. Help
, help us improve life for every person on the
planet. Help us improve the methods for informing the public so
that people are more aware of their choices and options, so they
become the masters of their own destinies, and not controlled by
some outside ignorant behavior.
