Higher mind genius
The following are the so-called "higher minds" rankings of envisioned higher-then-human-intelligence conceptualized "minds", either futuristic, e.g. Hari Seldon, legendary, e.g. Faust, scientific "minds", e.g. Boscovich's "finite mine", or "demons", e.g. Maxwell's demon, among newer fictional geniuses, e.g. Eddie Morra, who takes "mind pills" so to tap into his James-based unrealized 90% unused mind potential (see: 10 percent myth); the majority of which being devised by actual geniuses; each character is shown with crudely-guesstimated hypothetical IQ () of such a "mind" were it to exist:
|#||Intellect||IQ Intellect||Abilities||Inventor||Inventor IQ||Country|
|=250||An anti-chance, atheism-explicit, atomic theory based intellect, able to understand and see all revolutions in the universe, from both the physics and moral point of view, by “exactly” knowing the “communicated forces” and “different energies acting in each case”, and therein have an understanding capacitated to rate all the action and re-action, of the minds and bodies of those who contributed to the revolution.||Baron d'Holbach
|=225||Based on the semi-legendary Johann Faust (c.1485-c.1540), who, as the legend goes, after going through all of the branches of knowledge, e.g. arts, science, theology, jurisprudence, medicine, law, philosophy, etc., in search of truth, meaning, and understanding, but finding only polemics, exegesis, dogmatism, babble, distortions, along with “shadows, vapors, follies, bound into a system”, and "vanity", seeks out the "devil" who tells him the answer to every question he asks, therein satisfying his mind, albeit in return for the sale of his soul.||Johann Goethe
|Someone, in the future, who introduces a new value system, not tied to the “other-worldliness” of current religions, such as Christianity, but to the real “earthly-world”, who, therein, banishes nihilism, and fills the growing moral vacuum, formed in the wake of the death of belief in the existence of god (see: god is dead); moreover, someone who frees people from “speaking like children”, in employing rote phrases such as “I am body and soul”, but rather says, when “awakened and enlightened” (Thus Spoke Zarathustra, pg. 61), something akin to: “I am body entirely, and nothing beside’ and ‘soul’ is only a word for some ‘thing’ in the body”; some have claimed that Nietzsche, in his writings, alluded to the following uberman model archetypes: Socrates, Caesar, da Vinci, Michelangelo, Shakespeare, Goethe, and Napoleon (Hayes, 2002); Nietzsche, himself, in his last 1887 will to power fragments, cites: Caesar, Homer, Aristophanes, da Vinci, and Goethe, as examples of “great human beings”; Heraclitus is frequently employed in his writings; many consider Goethe as the closest Nietzsche came to naming the Ubermensch.||Friedrich Nietzsche
||Adams' another Newton
|=225||A future person, who firstly comes to define themselves as either a "phase" (see: social phase) or a "human molecule", in a physico-chemical sense, and is able to model all of human history, including interpersonal sexual relationships, and the rise and falls of civilizations, and the seeming "cause and effect" details of government, e.g. the years of Jefferson administration, via the chemical thermodynamics of Willard Gibbs, scaled up to social dynamics.||Henry Adams
|=220||An intellect who knows the precise location an momentum of every atom in the universe, then, using Newton’ laws of motion, could reveal the entire course of cosmic events, past and future; a variant of Holbach's geometrician.||Pierre Laplace
|6.||Hawking's mind of god
|=||“Before we understand science, it is natural believe that god created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation. What I meant [in A Brief History of Time (1988) (Ѻ)] by ‘we would know the mind of god’ is, we would know everything that god would know, if there were a god. Which there isn’t. I’m an atheist.”
(13 BE-64 AE)
|7.||Boscovich's finite mind
|=220||A finite, brilliant, powerful “mind”, that surpasses all the powers of the human intellect, but like a “geometer can easily see thus far, that problems are determinate”, is able to use the “law of force” to measure the curves of motion of all points of matter, and therein “to foresee all the necessary subsequent motions and states, and to predict all the phenomena that necessarily followed from them”.||Roger Boscovich
|=215||Someone, in the future, who can unify “theoretical biology”, in respect to “emergence, the physicochemical, the organismal, the mental and the social”, applicable to both human societies and insect societies; it was posited, by Wheeler, that it will take a “few” such super-Einsteins to do the job; he might have had Lawrence Henderson in mind as a prototype or archetype.||William Wheeler
|=215||An intelligent being that is able to "see" the speeds of atoms and molecules (in a gas), and thus separate them into slow (cold) and fast (hot) groupings, and thus circumvent or reverse the second law of thermodynamics.||James Maxwell
|=215||A professor, from the far distant future, who uses the kinetic theory of gases to devise a a new science called “psychohistory”, which is able to predict the “overall behavior of human societies even though the solutions would not apply to the behavior of individual human beings”, and thereby predict the eventual fall of the Galactic Empire.||Isaac Asimov
(35 BE-37 AE)
|13.||Fosdick's new Aristotle
|=215||Someone able to find or discern a "moral equivalent of war".||Raymond Fosdick
|A "sufficient intellect", with knowledge of the properties of the molecules and forces possessed by the molecules of the primitive nebulosity (see: nebular hypothesis), able to predict the state of fauna of Great Britain with as much certainty as one could predict the vapor of one’s breath on a cold winter day.||Thomas Huxley
|A scientist, framed around the figures: Cornelius Agrippa, Paracelsus, and Albertus Magnus, partly based on Luigi Galvani's electrified twitching frog legs experiments, who is able to create "life" in the laboratory; character arose from Mary Shelley listening to Percy Shelley and George Byron debate the subject.||Mary Shelley
|=||A scientific “prophet” who had a “sufficient insight into the inner parts of things, and in addition had remembrance and intelligence enough to consider all the circumstances and take them into account, he would see the future, since everything proceeds mathematically, in the present as in a mirror."||Gottfried Leibniz
|Super-calculating intellect / superintellect||A cosmic super-intellect, knowledgeable about polymer chemistry (1981), who makes "life" from cosmic nebula, comprised of carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen, not by the "blind forces of nature" but by fixing the energy levels of nucleus of each element, so that they are fine-tuned.||Fred Hoyle||American|
|A child prodigy, who possesses a keen scientific intellect, decades ahead of his time, whose intelligence has recently been augmented by his new powers; holds multiple doctoral level degrees in theoretical and applied physics fields.||Stan Lee
|A person who is able to read books, and all subjects, e.g. math, physics, chemistry, literature, history, etc., at a rate of books per hour, and be able to remember ever word, citation, and date; loosely based on American child prodigy William Sidis (IQ:175|#314) who graduated from Harvard at age 16, whose IQ was famously over-estimated to be in the 250 to 300 range (Sperling, 1946) and to have been a prodigy equivalent to Gauss (Comstock, c.1915).||Matt Damon
|=185||A 7-year old child prodigy, who scores “off the charts on the Stanford-Binet IQ” test, with seemingly endless mathematical and musical abilities, who studies quantum mechanics in college; but who is “emotionally” withdrawn and observational; character thematic, in some sense, to Jody Foster, a former child prodigy, who directed the film.||Scott Frank
|A struggling writer who, when talking a nootropic drug called NZT-48, has the ability to enabling its user to see meaningful patterns in large amounts of disparate data, thereby fully utilize the brain, after which he writes best-selling books, learn new languages, master the stock market, becomes knowledgeable about medicine, becomes a big business decision maker, etc., growing to an auto-claimed IQ of "four digits"; based on the 2001 techno-thriller novel The Dark Fields.||Alan Glynn
|=185||A CalTech genius who invents a laser that can incinerate people from space, using a tracking device, but when he realizes its designed purpose, uses it to make a house full of popcorn; from the classic 1985 film Real Genius, where there also is the character Mitch Taylor, a new bright child prodigy, and Lazlo Hollyfeld, an old star genius, who “cracked”, but whose IQ or smartness is said to be higher than Knight and Taylor combined, but is now a recluse.||Martha Coolidge
|Lead "genius" behind the TV show The Big Bang Theory; said to have an eidetic memory who possesses an extensive general knowledge in many subjects including: physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy, cosmology, algebra, calculus, differential equations, vector calculus, computers, electronics, economics, vexillology, engineering, history, geography, linguistics, Finnish, and Mandarin Chinese; modeled on Leon Cooper (1930-).||Chuck Lorre
