Cognitive Evolution Bridges the Intelligence Divide
New Book Release: 'Cognitive Evolution: The Biological Imprint of Applied
Intelligence,' by Alice Travis; a bold, reasoned and meticulously
researched knowledge leap
BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The book "Cognitive Evolution"
addresses how the brain makes mental behaviors possible. It is the result
of an intensive analysis of interdisciplinary scientific efforts to codify
the physiological underpinnings of cognitive functions in Homo sapiens. In
a bold, reasoned and meticulously researched knowledge leap, the theory of
Cognitive Evolution proposes a new definition of biological evolution, and
reaches other conclusions believed to be of scientific interest in areas as
distinct as neurophysiology, computational theory, and psychology.

The Theory of Cognitive Evolution holds that "Race and ethnicity are
irrelevant to genius;" however, the same cannot be said of cultures. It
demonstrates, "Though categorically equal, cultures are decidedly unequal
in cerebral impact."
"Cognitive Evolution" predicts that increasingly rapid technological
advances will permit invasive exploration of brain activity, and that group
brain differences will be observed. The book posits that without a
scientific framework for discussing the causes of differences among
disparate Homo sapien populations, global society will face a crippling
human relations nightmare of the magnitude of George Orwell's 1984, a world
where slavery is freedom.
While "Cognitive Evolution" does not support Nobel Laureate James
Watson's recent scientific pronouncement that a "racially differentiating
gene" for intelligence will be discovered, the treatise suggests that
current public policy prohibiting debate of measured intelligence indicia
is flawed, debilitating and stultifying. The book raises the questions:
-- Can society survive a tacitly recognized hierarchy of humanity?
-- Can the categorized superior and dull expect to share a common
