In summary, The conversation discusses the concept of perception and how it affects one's view of the world. It explores the idea that each person's perception of the universe may be different and questions whether this means their universe is different. It also touches on the idea that the way one sees the world, either as systems or chaos, may determine their version of reality. The conversation concludes with the possibility that differing perspectives, such as those of "deranged" and "superior" intellects, may just be views from different angles.

There were some good points brought in with the trash. but let's try to keep religion and personal out of this.
Is some ones universe different because of their perception of it?
If you see things as systems of systems is that your world or everyones?
If you see them as chaos experienced is that the real world..it is to you?
could it be possible that the manifestations of both "deranged" and "superior" intellects are just views from a different angle?

"Is some ones universe different because of their perception of it?"

If "someone's universe" means "someone's perception of the universe",
yes.

If "someone's universe" means "THE universe"...no.

But isn't The universe only The universe to you?
Taking in that something is only true if it is repeatable by others then a pessimist's universal theories would be self proving because in his world everything goes wrong (stretch to illustrate)
 

What is IQ and how is it measured?

IQ, or intelligence quotient, is a numerical measure of a person's intelligence. It is typically measured through standardized tests such as the IQ test, which assesses cognitive abilities such as problem-solving, memory, and reasoning skills.

Can a person's IQ change over time?

Yes, a person's IQ can change over time, but it is generally considered to be relatively stable throughout their lifetime. Factors such as education, environment, and life experiences can impact a person's cognitive abilities and potentially affect their IQ scores.

Is a higher IQ correlated with success?

There is no definitive answer to this question. While some studies have shown a positive correlation between IQ and success in certain fields such as academia, others have shown that factors such as emotional intelligence and perseverance may also play a significant role in achieving success.

Can IQ be improved?

There is some evidence that certain activities and experiences, such as education, can help improve a person's cognitive abilities and potentially increase their IQ scores. However, the extent to which IQ can be improved is still a topic of debate among scientists.

What role does IQ play in understanding the universe?

IQ does not directly play a role in understanding the universe. However, a person's cognitive abilities, including their IQ, may influence their ability to comprehend and analyze complex concepts and theories related to the universe.
