When ideas have sex | Matt Ridley

At TEDGlobal 2010, author Matt Ridley shows how, throughout history, the engine of human progress has been the meeting and mating of ideas to make new ideas. It’s not important how clever individuals are, he says; what really matters is how smart the collective brain is.

  4. In case of people In tasmania, 4000 people were specialized and therefore, when seperated by waters they went extinct. Mr Bucky says the specialization is unnatural. Think of human child, they are curious about everything. They want to learn everything. Like Matt Ridley example Ants have colonies and they specialize. Humans are comprehensive intellects. We should think interms of whole not be specific. This is what nature demands from us.

  5. This is poetry. Matt is truly able to peel back the layers of onion and tell us what it looks like from the inside. Wonderful correct questions within observations without boastful conclusions. A true window into the Human collective mind.

  6. Prosperity isn't saving time, its when a society flourishes, when people have things to do and lives to live and everyone has a degree of satisfaction with how everything is going– time saving technology is nice to have but prosperity is more than that.

  7. "Not interested in IQ" This is the standard response of modern anthropologist today. The standard response used to be "there is no difference between group IQs." But that was proved wrong, so they had to find some other way to dismiss the question, and they chose to justify avoiding it. So we have intelligent, curious people who want to know literally everything about everything… but are suddenly "not interested" in IQ. Strange, isn't it?

    But his justification is wrong, also. He said, "[What's important is] not how clever the individuals are." Just a few seconds before, however, he defined IQ as the 'differences between groups'. And that's exactly what is relevant. I agree it's not (so much) how clever individuals are, but how clever the group is. How well they communicate, and how well they cooperate, is part and parcel of this "cleverness". The portrait of a group, and its success, is the sum of the layers of intelligence, personality, and many different mental traits that, at some points in their definitions, overlap.

    Tl;dr Great talk, but he is just another politically correct academic who is lying to himself and others on the issue of intra-genus group differences.
