Before we can search for ETI, we have to define intelligence.
Terman, Binet, and many others would say it is completely known: IQ.
Life is predicted, not at all contradicted, by one test alone: IQ.
We feel that education would be wasted on the masses,
And so we must reserve it for the able upper classes.
Is lovely in theory, but
You know way up in your brain, and deep down in your gut
That it's IQ, helps to discriminate.
IQ, tells us who really rates.
IQ determines the fate of us all.
