Checking on smart genes
Today’s topic is on identifying the “smart genes” of a person, in response to a search on the “booksmart” word done by one person on my site recently.
What exactly is “smart genes” and does it distinguish us from others, and is it inherent in our DNA?
Before I discuss further on “smart genes” from the Elements of Numbers (EON) perspectives, let’s check out what some medical experts and scientists have discovered from their findings reported on the Internet:
- According to this RT online article, it was quoted that “Through two different kinds of genome analysis, they [scientists] were able to pinpoint 40 new genes associated with intelligence. However, they explain that, taken together, their results only account for “up to 4.8 percent of the variance in human intelligence.””
- According to this U.S. National Library of Medicine page, it was quoted, “Like most aspects of human behavior and cognition, intelligence is a complex trait that is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors.”
- According to DailyMail Online page, “People with ‘smart genes’ are more likely to have the [autism] disorder.”
- According to this BigThink page, “scientific studies have long suggested that intelligence, as measured by intelligence quotient (IQ) tests, is heritable.”
It’s amazing for the medical experts to spend so many resources to discover “smart genes” that account for about 20% of the intelligence, based on the above first link. I’m concerned with the third link about more people with “smart genes” tend to have autism symptoms. Perhaps, these medical experts are suggesting the smarter you are; your brain “wires” could get shorted faster when you think or stress it too hard. And then, with the last fourth link, if the “smart genes” are inherited, can these lead to an influx of designer babies? Could that be why we see an increasing trend where people insisted on selecting auspicious birth dates for their babies, and in some cases, to decide the baby’s gender too – instead of relying on nature to take its course?
Putting aside these complex scientific and medical explanations, let’s focus on the Elements of Numbers (EON) methods to find out more about the “smart genes” from a simple, non-scientific way that you can (hopefully) understand better.
About the autism part – from EON perspectives, we usually associate intelligence and intellectuals with the mental (brain), and these are related to the Metal element. Yes, autism is, in many ways, linked to the excessive amount of Metal element present, or likely, the lack (deficiency) of it. What this implies is that when a person has too many (or lack of) Metal elements in their charts (that is, numbers 1 and/or 6), the tendencies for them to have Metal-related health symptoms (like mental, madness, craziness, smartness, skin, respiratory, pneumonia, sleep apnea, and autism) are strong. From another non-medical perspective and to an extent, the strong or weak presence (of Metal element) could lead to the radical mindset – with traits like insecurity, cyber-hacking, extremist, merciless, ingenious, greed, corruption, and money laundering.
I’ve discovered a different set of smart genes during the earlier years into my EON research, where I’d focused on two main smartness traits that’s more appropriate for me (and many others in Singapore, and maybe elsewhere too where academic intelligence is often a debated topic) – the street-smart and book-smart patterns. I’m glad to have shared with past EON and FEN students on both smart patterns, which allows them to check out if their children (and anyone, including themselves) have the academic and resourceful street-wise traits. And when found, they could maximise the strengths of the benefiting signs (present by way of the elements and numbers in the chart) by manifesting the positive energies.
When a person has the book-smart pattern in his natal or birth chart, I noticed they tend to read more books than someone who doesn’t have such a smart pattern in their chart. And when such pattern is present in their earlier years – where the pattern is found in locations I, J, K, and L – these imply the high possibility of getting good academic results. When your child (or anyone) has such smart patterns in the mentioned location, it means the likelihood you are exam-smart and a study-hard person. Chances are… your school results are usually above-average or even higher.
What about the person who has the book-smart pattern in their natal chart, and yet have poor academic results?
It has nothing to do with my observations on the smart patterns. It has to do with the child and more likely, their parents could have influenced them (parental upbringing) in one way or another. You see, when parents forced the child to “study, study, and study,” many children would tend to rebel against the lack of freedom, privacy, or breathing space to study from their own style, space, and time. As a result, to spite their parents, they just read through the book without absorbing the contents or substance. In short, the children can study, but they prefer not to. In some cases, it might be they don’t know how to study (i.e., the correct learning method) because of the lack of parental coaching, or sincere mentor (like teachers) to guide them.
A person with the street-smart pattern tends to be more resourceful naturally, and could recognise opportunities when it comes along. They are often the street-surviving or street-wise people who are the work-smart, think-smart, and study-smart ones. And their lives are even more exciting with the information overload on the Internet – they’ll be the ones you should befriend to find out the best deals available, finding the cheat codes (for your games), spotting exam questions, explaining concepts and giving alternative suggestions rather than following rules of the book, its theories, and so on.
When the street-smart pattern is found in locations I, J, K, and L of their natal or birth chart, we can associate the person as having the inherited resourcefulness trait. They tend to be more exam-smart as more often than not, they learned through concepts and understanding rather than studying hard and remembering by heart the contents stated throughout the book only. They have the automated study-smart “knowing where to find” character inclinations than the study-hard and forceful self-inflicted stressful traits.
When your child (or even you) has both smart patterns (street-smart and book-smart), they are the luckier ones who could excel academically and in life, and yet has a natural resourceful character.
If either or both smart patterns are not found in the I, J, K, and L locations, it doesn’t mean you are not smart enough. On the contrary, you are not smart earlier as your smartness comes only at the later years. That’s where your smart pattern is present elsewhere (in M, N, O, P, Q, and R, and H1–H5) in the natal or birth chart. Those are often the late starters we usually associate with a person who might not have good academic results when young but decided to upgrade their academic skills during adulthood or only after they have started working.
Knowing where the smart patterns in an EON chart is important as it allows you to take positive actions to help your child or someone’s else kid to maximise their strengths. You can also apply such method on yourself even when you are in your 30s or 40s, or older, and planning to obtain recognised academic or professional certifications. I’ve shared with past FEN (Five Elements Numerology) students the various ways to strengthen the smart patterns, especially when a child doesn’t have such smart genes in them. One approach is to identify similar smart patterns through your periodic charts, and plan your study or exam time during these beneficial times. That means we all have the smart patterns manifesting periodically during our lifetime, regardless of whether we have them present in our natal or birth charts. I’ll share more enriching ways to identify and take advantage of your smart patterns in my FEN classes.
Meanwhile, don’t worry unnecessary if you aren’t sure about your smart patterns, and keen to find out more. Knowing such smart patterns is just one small part that you can improve on your life. There are other equally important ones – like knowing yourself, your health and fitness (physical and mental), and your attitudes and perspectives. These are the life-enrichment things you can do to transform the change in you to have more positive vibes from within, and have a meaningful purpose in your life.
