Regarding IQ and Race:
Because IQ and Race are not precisely plotted in the matrix of all things, the margin of error in any estimate of correlation would be significant.
Secondly, science does not deal in the
"inherent natures of complex systems"
but instead deals in the
"causes and directions operating in complex systems." Therefore, if we found a correlation, that would only be step one.
Thirdly, it has already been observed that some members of each "Illusionary Racial Group" score
higher on IQ tests than some of the members of each of the other groups. When dealing with
group averages under widely varying conditions,
there is no conclusion to be drawn that would pertain to individuals.

Personally, I believe yoga and/or Christly meditation about one's own responsibilities
is one of the most important variables in
creating true intelligence. And there's
a very good explanation for that.
