Smarter than Einstein, Philip Emeagwali, IQ 190

Smarter than Einstein, Philip Emeagwali, IQ 190 | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it



Community Village Sites's insight:


Philip Emeqgwali is a pioneering researcher in computer technology with an IQ of 190, higher than Einstein.


His U.S. degrees are from George Washington University and the University of Maryland, as well as a doctoral fellowship from the University of Michigan.


As he explains the history of African science, the thought came to me that Africans created all people. Respecting our forefathers includes respecting Africans.


“”The Internet as we know it today did not cross my mind,” Emeagwali told TIME. “I was hypothesizing a planetary-sized supercomputer and, broadly speaking, my focus was on how the present creates the future and how our image of the future inspires the present.”

Jarvis Johnson's comment, November 19, 2013 8:22 PM
So Zimmerman was arrested yesterday and charged with felony aggravated assault after alledgedly pointing a shotgun at his girlfriend. Basically, he thinks because he got off on murder that he is invincible and making a mockery of the "justice system" Who else must die before they realize that this guy is dangerous. Prime example that you do not have to grow up in a poor neighborhood or come from a single parent home to be deviant or be a product of the Cultural Deviant Theory.

6 Things You Thought Wrong About Introverts

6 Things You Thought Wrong About Introverts | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

If common stereotypes have anything to say on the matter, it's that introverts are socially awkward loners who abhor large crowds and don't like people very much.

Why Decolonize?

Why Decolonize? | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"Do you know the people you come from?" This is the one question most commonly asked by the world's Indigenous peoples to people of European heritage. 


...decolonization is a powerful process that allows us to:

  • Re-connnect with the places we come from, and the ways of life that shaped our ancestor’s experience and continue to live hidden within ourselves;
  • Reawaken the identity of who we are in a line of people from ancient ancestors to future generations;
  • Restore a sacred way of life through relationships with the animals, plants, and other living relatives who made our lives possible;
  • Become more effective allies in anti-racist action, solidarity work, and resistance struggles of Indigenous people and other people of color;
  • Make healing of historic traumas possible for ourselves, and for Indigenous people who suffer from colonization and genocide."

Community Village Sites's comment, December 4, 2013 2:39 AM
"People of European heritage are often called hungry ghosts because we don’t know our selves. This trauma of disconnection is profound, causing us to constantly grab for anything of spiritual meaning – even if it does not belong to us. This taking leads to cultural theft and appropriation, spiritual materialism, and the silencing of authentic native voices. Worse, we spread this dysfunction to others, including people of color, through the dominance of Western cultural values."
