Summary of my activities
In the mid-1990s I started designing tests to find out to what extend it is possible to measure intelligence beyond the valid ceilings of the tests used in regular psychology. Over the years I began to study other aspects of (high) intelligence as well, and also founded several I.Q. societies. My intelligence tests and related activities are the most successful endeavour in my life so far in that they are appreciated by thousands around the world.
From 1980 on I have been playing guitar, and from about 1981 I have been composing. I first played rock (in a self-founded band called Catweazle), then jazz, then classical music, and studied guitar and composition at a conservatory from 1986 to 1993. Since the mid-1990s I have performed and composed very little because it turned out impossible to connect to the outer world through music; making a living with it, getting compositions played and/or published and getting concerts as a guitarist were not feasible. My fairly large oeuvre always remains available for musicians who wish to play it though.
My work in music theory of 1992 is one of my first original ideas.
Since about 1981 I have been writing, mainly short stories in Netherlandic. In the 1990s I have also lectured from those and won a literature prize. Publishing and selling these works in paper form have not succeeded on a significant scale. Almost all of it can be read online now, and I am still available for lectures.
Topics in my philosophical work are sense of good and bad, justice, truth, objective ethics, treatment of crime, human quality and awareness. In short my insights are that truth and good and bad are objective and the opposite of relative (I avoid the word "absolute" here as I know some mistake that for "divine").
An important idea of mine is that only what can be verified by aware beings exists.
The main concept I study in psychology is that of genius, which I see as a synergy of conscientiousness, intelligence and associative horizon. Other fields of interest are personality, early memories and Asperger Syndrome. Also I observe the mistaken notion of "emotional intelligence" (previously called "social intelligence" and who knows what names for the same will come next) being used to downplay real qualities like conscientiousness and intelligence. There is no scientific basis for this, and psychology is serving an ideological and political goal (to wit, the feminization of society) by providing instruments like "EQ tests" and stressing the importance of the supposedly measured qualities therein.
I have been thinking of intelligent, rational ways to rule a country. Vote weighting based on intelligence in elections is an example. I am hard on crime, advocate freedom of speech, choose safety over security, fight overpopulation and advise eugenic measures. I am a warm defendant of capital punishment and recommend with emphasis that violent criminals be kept from procreating.
My main concerns in this field are to achieve a fair distribution of income and wealth that reflects the natural differences between people in ability and achievement, and to eliminate inflation. Both problems - inflation and too large (inflated!) income differences - are, at the root, caused by the existence of ways to "make money with money", and those ways must therefore be abolished. Examples of these ways are interest, dividend, insurance, and the myriad covert ways of lending against interest that go by as many euphemisms. Another way of phrasing the solution is to say "money itself must never be subject of trade". Yet another way: People must only buy what they can afford; that is, pay for without borrowing.
In 2001 I started using a modern computer and making my web site, and therefore learning about web design and the many markup, scripting and programming languages. I have taken several courses in that field and started working in programming in 2005. Being a late newcomer on the Internet, I have a fresh view and see right away the things that are so horribly wrong in most "professionally" "designed" web sites.
The importance of studying human evolution lies in understanding how humans came to be and how the current individual and group differences between humans came to be.
In January 2006 I by accident discovered a hidden message in the Rider-Waite Tarot that apparently no one had seen before in 95 years. It is of some importance. Although this is not at all my normal field of work, it is remarkable.
