Are you of above average intelligence? are you unique? do you like to have fun? Then this group is for you. Please don't be intimidated by these descriptions anyone who feels they are the above can join even if no one else thinks you are! Also just by having above average intelligence you will be unique in some way. Also fun here doesn't mean you like to spend your weekends clubbing and drinking all night! It means you like to joke and have a laugh, have interesting conversations and do and learn interesting things.
Please check these guidelines and you should get a pretty good idea whether this is the right group for you:
1 – This is not a group for officially tested geniuses only, there is Mensa for that. This is for anyone who feels their intelligence is high enough that they often can no longer be stimulated, communicate happily and without effort and pretence with average people. So your IQ would be above 130 but please judge by these guidelines and not by attempting online IQ tests, many are very inaccurate.
2 - Most people will probably know their intelligence is above average/they're gifted sometime in childhood. For example you're always the brainy kid or one of the brainy kids at school, at home or wherever. You enjoy learning and you were naturally good at most or many things without much effort.
3 - You usually think outside the 'ordinary' box and sometimes find what average people think or say is dull, annoying, humorous to you, maybe so simple it's cute, or just bizarre.
4 - They say there's a thin line between madness and genius. You beg to differ! Because you have seen absolutely and utterly DEFINITIVE evidence that there's a thin 'and breaking' line between madness and stupidity!
5 - You know the difference between educated and intelligent! And you don’t think anyone who’s educated is intelligent.
6 - Most people are average. So it is much harder for you to find people that stimulate you and that you can really get on with.
7 - This is not about emotional intelligence, spiritual intelligence, abilities etc, special wisdom and so forth. That's not what this particular group is about. You need to fill the above criteria first and foremost.
8 - This is not about being interested in world issues and always wanting to have intellectual discussions. It is about your way of thin king and seeing things even if the topic is totally unimportant.
9 – This is also not a particular interest group, like Science, computers, Sci-Fi, quizzes etc. It is for all interests. Including unintelligent ones!
10 - You are respectful and don't dislike or look down on people of less intelligence but you wish to have a community of your own where most people think more like you and you can feel comfortable and stimulated around them.
The idea of this group is to do nice, normal and fun activities. But what will make these activities or outings different, stop you from falling asleep and make these activities fun is the company you will have!!! No more boring irrelevant conversations that send you to sleep and make you rather be a hermit! No more always saying what you think you should say because that's what people can understand or accept, instead of saying what you really think or what you actually want to say. Which makes socialising more of a tedious job rather than fun and relaxation! This will be a group where you can be yourself, relax and have fun.
Activities will vary widely depending on what the members want from going to dinner, meeting for a coffee, going to the Cinema or comedy show, going on picnics in nice parks, going to museums, attending interesting lectures or discussion groups, walking, skating, going to a dance class, painting in nature, cooking, playing games/cards etc, learning new things e.g. new language, instrument etc, reading a book and discussing it, recommending good films, books etc, and whatever comes to mind or members suggest.
Looking forward to meeting all you interesting intelligent people!
This was the initial creators view. Im broadly in agreement,
With the addition that this is to learn more and celebrate the awesomeness that is the universe we live in, nature, evolution and consciousness and the extraordinary potential human beings have to be creative and create a better future if we co-operate together with intentional communities.
There is much more to talk about too...
Hope to see you soon.
