The following post made me come back to the topic:
“The IQ IQ has started to fall
by Daniel Despodov -13.06.2018
An extensive study has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showing that IQ has been steadily declining over the past 10 years.
According to teachings, Flynn’s “reverse effect” is linked to a variety of external factors. For example, with changes in education systems or the influence of the media. So far no one can give a satisfactory answer.
In 1984, American scientist James Flynn published in Psychological Bulletin the article “The average IQ of Americans: Massive gains 1932 to 1978”. It describes an interesting statistical phenomenon – the gradual increase of IQ by 15 points over the last four decades. This growth is seen not only in the US but also in other countries. But in recent years, the reverse trend has been registered – more research has shown that IQ has been steadily declining since the early 1970s. Unknown why right now.
The new scientific work analyzed the data of 730,000 people, the information for which was collected from 1970 to 2009. The study covers only men born during the period from 1962 to 1991. The age of the study participants is 18-19 years.
The average IQ for those born in 1962 is 99.5 points, and for those born after seven years it is already 102.3. This is consistent with Flynn’s effect. But for men born in 1989, IQ dropped to 99.4 points. Gradually, a continuous decline in IQ is emerging.
Psychologists can not explain the new phenomenon. Migration is believed to have an impact, a deterioration in the quality of education both in schools and in families. Very likely causes are the worsening nutrition and health, as well as the strong impact of the media.

If you think that everything is energy, you can easily understand that different energies are in constant interaction. Dual convictions strongly argue: either there is interaction or not. But the real reality is very different: as I often repeat, every thing has its good and bad side, interaction exists always, but in varying degrees / in a wide range. If you are aware of these physical consequences, you can always choose: to reduce or increase some impact.
A major contributor to the increase in human bluntness is mobile devices that multiply as mushrooms after rain. Moreover, they act in the immediate vicinity of man. As I have stated before, the frequencies of the devices are specifically selected to influence the human intellect. All research proving their safety is paid by interested people to manipulate people more easily.
Other mass-reducing mental factors, of course, depend on the intensity and duration of the impact:
Drugs and chemistry used in everyday life and food – all that worsens natural processes in the body, reduces normal energy exchange, and intelligence is energy-exchange, not just biochemistry. But you understand that chemical compounds also affect biochemistry. Especially for impact on human intelligence, chemicals are spilled into the atmosphere by airplanes – the so-called “chemical traces.” The same effect is chlorine and fluorine in drinking water as well as in toothpaste. This chemistry is brought into daily use, again through paid studies proving some benefits.
Dark colors, especially when they act constantly, suppress the intellect. That’s why businesses, popes, and many other people are constantly walking in black clothes. Do you think someone enjoys a constant ride in a hearse, but mass consciousness suggests that the black car is prestigious and modern. Watch people wearing black clothes, do you notice signs of intellect or look more like puppets?
Genetically modified products act almost like chemistry. Do you notice that fruits and vegetables are more and more like plastic?
Strong noise also has a strong suppressive effect, especially when it is prolonged. The impact of technorites is very strong – do you notice the heavy damage to the young generation? Who, and why, in your opinion, has suggested to the owners of various establishments that strong music increases consumption?
How do you think, what impact on the intellect have drugs and alcohol – there are no two opinions on this issue!
Again, I return to the impact of movies on mass consciousness and intellect. Why do you think very easy financing for horror movies, violence, murder, war or glorification of stupidity, and normal intellectual movies are becoming more and more rare? Why are Oligophrenia Modern and Fun? Think about all these questions while you can!
