influence of instrumental classics

Classical music enhances intelligence because because, the instruments don't always play at the same time. A piece can start with all instruments playing a given not, but then, the conducter can silence one set, to get another set of instruments to play a different note to move along the piece. This pattern, requires logic and mathematical harmony, the end result of which that when the brain detects these sounds, neurons begin to fire in the sequence presented by classical music.

More crucially still; because classical music is a harmony of mathematical precision, and because what the end result is, well, music, something that is perceived as simply "beautiful" and therefore not rational, the mathematical logic, and irrational aspects of classical music thus stimulate both hemispheres of the brain, causing them to fire back and forth, and in so doing slightly increasing intelligence by a limited degree.

Ultimately though people can't get smarter; now, in the formative years, through countless puzzles and brain games, you can prevent brain cells from auto necrotizing, but you can not enhance what the brain already has. If you are a kid, there is hope, but if you are a grown adult, you've got what you've got, sorry.

Think about it; kids learn languages easily. Intelligence, it can be argued, is of similar nature to language. Both deal with patterns and sequences, as well stringing these things together in ways that do not necessarily "follow the rules" and yet possess their own logic. Kids easily pick up languages because their brains still posses most of their neurons. We are all born with 100 billion neurons. How much of them we hold on to, depends largely on whether or not the brain feels it needs to hold on to them.

If a person, say, goes to a tri-lingual school from grades K through 8, they will speak three languages, with no accent. Reason being the brain will hold on to as many neurons as possible to be able to speak in those languages. If it sees a reason, as a child, to hold on to neurons, it will hold on to them, if it does not see a reason then it will kill them. And once a person hits puberty, that's it; the brain will stop killing neurons, but, what you've got is what you've got.

That is why the first 10 years are crucial.

The reason men generally, as a whole among our rank, have people with higher I.Q.'s than women, is because men hit puberty later, thus, we have the good fortune of having a longer period in which our brains will hold on to neurons before it finally decides to "solidify." Because women hit puberty earlier, their brain, like gelatin, "solidifies" earlier. However women compensate for this fact, holding on to less neurons, in that estrogen allows, better than testosterone, for use of both sides of the brain's hemisphere.

In other words men can hold on to more but are restricted to one side of the brain or other, and men can be smarter, problem is, it is either logic or creative, but rarely both, while women can be just as intelligent provided they hold on to enough neurons, but lucky them, they get to use both sides.

If women seem irrational, it is because of a prodigiously strong sex drive which can wreck their emotions, and the fact that they are using both sides of their cerebral hemisphere. Neither gender is smarter than the other, but nevertheless both sides of the brain gender line serve different functions for different reasons.

Classical music, helps everyone develop both sides of their brain, or rather stimulate them, but the older a person is the less responsive they are to this stimulation, that is why therefore, believe it or not you want to take a small child to a classical music concert, not when they become teenagers. And if children aren't allowed the best age for a person to listen to classical music is when they are very small, under the supervision of an adult of course.

To make your kid smarter; bombard them with brain games of all and any kind, and encourage them to use their imagination but to CONTROL IT. Kids are wrongly discouraged from using their imagination, when people do not realize what a crucial component that is to human intellect, reason being, imagination is the human brain's own "monitor."

All computers have monitors these days, and the brain is no different. Imagination, is the brain's monitor, and it is not an issue of discouraging children from using it, but teaching them to control it in a disciplined and organized manner, as well as allowing imagination play so long as they are taught to distinguish between real and not real. The combination of puzzle solving of all kinds to encompass the entire intellectual spectrum, the listening of classical music, and encouragement to use imagination, can produce a child with an I.Q. in excess of 140.

The reason "geeks" and "nerds" are as smart as they are, is because they never "outgrow" that. Sadly though because of lack of proper guidance, many geeks and nerds do not mature. In Japan, parents actively encourage their children to use their imagination in a controlled manner, that is why many of them are generally smarter than Americans, or everyone else for that matter. Thing is, they do not encompass the whole intelectual spectrum; their emphasis on just math and language, makes it so that their logic, and imagination application, is almost entirely inflexible, and linear, the end result being only a small minority of them can produce original ideas. Thus there is SOME truth to the stereotype that they reverse engineer everyone else's ideas.
