All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident: Arthur Schopenhauer -- In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual: Galileo Galilei -- Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it: Albert Einstein -- When you have eliminated the impossible, what ever remains, however improbable must be the truth: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- We all agree that your theory is crazy, but is it crazy enough? Niels Bohr -- Whenever a true theory appears, it will be its own evidence. Its test is that it will explain all phenomena: Ralph Waldo Emerson -- Since the mathematicians invaded Relativity, I do not understand it myself anymore: Albert Einstein -- I would say that the aether is a medium invented by man for the purpose of propagating his misconceptions from one place to another: W.F.G. Swann: -- Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone: Albert Einstein -- Physics is mathematical not because we know so much about the physical world, but because we know so little: Bertrand Russell -- If I could explain it to the average person, I would not have been worth the Nobel Prize: R. P. Feynman -- I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use: Galileo Galilei -- How dare we speak of the laws of chance? Is not chance the antithesis of all law?: Bertrand Russell -- Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I´m not sure about the former: Albert Einstein -- The glory of mathematics is that you don't have to say what you are talking about: Richard Feynman -- Anything is possible if you don´t know what you are talking about: Author Unknown -- In life, everything is relative - except Einstein´s theory: Leonid S. Sukhorukov -- Don´\'t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you´ll have to ram them down people´s throats: Howard Aiken --A day will come undoubtedly when the ether will be discarded as useless: H. Poincaré -- First they tell you you´re wrong and they can prove it; then they tell you you´re right but it isn´t important; then they tell you it´s important but they knew it all along: Charles Kettering -- It is not once nor twice but times without number that the same ideas make their appearance in the world: Aristotle -- The opposite of a true statement is a false statement. The opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth: Niels Bohr -- A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it: Max Planck -- Euclid taught me that without assumptions there is no proof. Therefore, in any argument, examine the assumptions: Eric Temple Bell -- Half this game is ninety percent mental: Yogi Berra

Summary overview of intelligence development in young children, coinciding with neocortex verbal areas development by means of mastery of the reading skill and of the state of children literacy development in the world.


Carl Littmann(United States):
(Regarding Reading Skills, etc.,) strikes me as a constructive, needed, and educational paper with many important points. And more than ever in this ever technologically advancing world, those with early-developed great perceptional and, especially, reading skills, can really 'go to town.'
But I would still caution that there is much merit to another school of thought often taught in the midwest U.S. in the 1970s -- that human intelligence and creativity is such an awesome and broad manifold of nature -- that it can not and should not be confined to simple aphorisms like 'humans only think in terms of words'. Obama & Hillary (attorneys) had great reading & linguistic skills, but the U.S. presidency was won by Trump who could hardly articulate a sensible or non-contradicting two sentences, and sometimes not even one.
Faraday, who could not understand calculus and even some more basic math, was (I think) at least as creative & contributing as H. Davies, who was a real wizard -- but who seemed incapable of appreciating Faraday's contribution to electric motor development. Chief Crazy Horse beat Civil War & West Point veteran General Custer on the battle field around 1876.
I believe (as do many educators also) that different human beings grasp different skills and concepts differently regarding ease & difficulty depending on their different types of innate abilities and the different type Signal packages (different educational approaches) used.
I (about 75 years old) can catch on to a new computer skill in 10 seconds of watching someone going through the actions slowly ---- yet if I had to read a full page of detailed instructions of those actions and then try to carry it out -- it might take me an hour (at best). Still I respect greatly those who catch on to that page by Fast-Skillful Reading and great memory in 5 seconds or even less. And having it in writing as backup in case any one forgets.
