1. Cognitive psychology research

The purpose of this statistical study is to validate the model about the hereditary nature of relational intelligence, which has been developed to prove the General Theory of Conditional Evolution of Life through the detection of the Logical Verification of Information method (LoVeInf)

The connection of The EDI Study with the Global Cognitive Theory is also broad since the latter is an enlargement of the consequences of the Conditional Evolution of Life on cognitive psychology.

The designed model represents the configuration of the elegant intelligence and its biological mechanisms.

It is not so much about knowing the parameters of the quantitative model but checking whether the adjustment is good enough to accept or reject some proposals. This characteristic is evident in the Globus Model, which is a sensitivity analysis of the changes in the goodness of fit concerning the intelligence evolution between parents and their children.

The EDI Study identifies the source data and the specifications of the model in the cognitive research, allowing for the reproduction of the work and the formal acceptance of its outcomes.

The results have been satisfactory; not only they show the innate nature of the IQ scores but also that the genetic information with less intellectual potential is the significant one, like the Conditional Evolution of Life states regarding the concept of conditional intelligence.

Other weighty results are:

  • The functions of human reasoning are quite concentrated in a single chromosome.

  • The EDI Study finds correlations of more than 0.8 showing that the genetic component of relational intelligence is much higher than the generally accepted and seems the main factor considering the difficulties of IQ measurements and the variability of its manifestation.

  • A statistical simulation with generated IQ vectors that behave as the IQ variables observed empirically

  • According to what the Conditional Evolution of Life (CEL) discloses, following the basic knowledge of sexual biological reproduction, the increase of the genetic intellectual ability of only a particular ancestor substantially improves the adjustment of the model in its simulation when using sensitivity analysis.

    Genetic differences due to gender are essential because of the specialization they imply. Doubtlessly, the other ancestor contribution goes through alternative ways, also included in the model.

  • On sexual differentiation, there is an influence of a particular requisite when forming a couple regarding intelligence. The validation of the new hypothesis simultaneously reinforces the model's overall coherence.

    It has been observed a substantial increase in the goodness of fit of the simulation under the new relation on the sexual or couple selection; reaching correlations of 0,97

Given that The EDI Study suggests a radical change from the prevailing opinions of the scientific community, the logical deduction should be to perform more studies with the same methodology.

With a more straightforward approach, the CEL book contains two proposals to confirm the results of the EDI Study about the security functions of women in the sexual differentiation, the update of genetic information carried out by men throughout their lives, the hereditary nature of intelligence and a 10% increment in each generation.

  • Darwin-out experiment

    It is a linear discriminant analysis of the origin of the maternal X chromosome.

    The idea arose in 2011 due to the remarkable adjustment of the September 2002 additional hypothesis of sexual selection to the initial April 2002 EDI Study.

  • Menssalina experiment

    It investigates quantitative genetics with chromosomes of the grandparents to analyze the transfer of characters with sexual differentiation to grandchildren.

    It is more powerful and cheaper to perform than the Darwin-out experiment and could be equally useful to study the evolution of different chromosomes and their participation in many biological processes with possible evolutionary differences due to gender.

The CEL is a theory based on the purpose of expanding the sphere of freedom of living beings and the use of mechanisms subject to environmental and logical conditions.

In other words, it would imply a teleological or finalist theory and, consequently, random mutations and natural selection would no longer constitute the main components of evolution.
