Beyond Prodigies book cover

Update for March 22, 2013 — the new prodigies book is now available through Barnes&Noble.
Much of the book's information is based on SesquIQ's SQ project, and since the book details some of the features within the SQ classifications of cognition the previous SQ tests have now been halted and no scoring will be given except for the new SQ tests. Too, as the table above illustrates, modern physics and psychology are based upon the belief that two things can interact without a third thing. The Prodigies book describes a portion of the missing third element in science and in the normal human manner of thought.

Intelligence is an entity's conscious perceptual awareness of itself and its surroundings, and the depth of capacity to personally use that information. Intelligence is the conceptual creation of memory, sensorial perception, and logic functioning in harmony.

"...intelligence is determined by the nature of elements which do not possess intelligence [memory, sensorial perception, and logic], and the nature of the elements themselves are determined by the nature of the elements that create but do not possess the attribute of the creation." (Logics Origin)

Information derived from personal firsthand experience creates factual self-referenced knowledge and understanding. Information derived from symbols of words and numbers creates innately flawed knowledge. Understanding is only possible through experiential information-gathering.

Society places great emphasis on knowledge but no discernible emphasis on understanding. Intelligence can exist without understanding, although it will be out of balance and have no depth nor potential for accuracy. Excessive symbolism-based knowledge results in an intelligence that bases most of its conclusions on words and numbers, with few conclusions based on fact. Understanding through experiential information-gathering provides the greatest quantity of fact, but little opportunity to communicate facts through words of information. The ideal intelligence is one equally based with knowledge and understanding.
