On the bottom left, you will find a link to a web site that comes up with a daily miscellaneous list of ten things (usually).
Today’s list is 10 More Amazing Facts about Dreams (click). It in turn, as expected, links to another original list of equally amazing facts about dreams.
I have yet not gone through the latest list, but while going through the original one, I was quite amazed by how the observations made by Sigmund Freud (click) about nine decades ago, have still held true. I have had the fortune of reading initial parts of the English translation of The Interpretation of Dreams, and the first time I had read it, I was dumb struck by the intelligence of that person. And on reading about his ground-breaking ideas (apart from those on dreams) of psychoanalysis (click), ego-defense mechanisms (click) and psychosexual development (click), I was totally floored! Each time I read about him, I only wonder, how could a person feel, observe, analyze, document, and subject to verification so much in one lifetime! No wonder, I was not surprised in the least when I came to know through some obscure web site (of questionable reliablity) that his IQ was tagged at 160!
And from the very same web site: Einstein–165, Newton–175, Darwin–180, Kasparov–180, and well the most intelligent public figures were Sharon Stone–150, Hillary Clinton–140, and Madonna–140 😉
Here (click) is a list of IQs of famous people with figures quite different from what I have quoted in this post, but interesting (and equally dubious) nonetheless.
Those are HUGE numbers! In all likelihood, the most intelligent grown up you would have ever personally known would have it less than 160!
As you could see I have rambled a lot, leaping from one idea to the next remotely connected one. But then I had to justify post’s title, also! 😉
