Albert Einstein’s brain was originally sliced up into sections in the course of an autopsy. Parts of Einstein’s brain have been digitized and are available to view in a new iPhone app called NMHMC Harvey. Since brain matter from Einstein still exists, it is imperative to analyze his whole genome and find ways to clone the great scientist. Another option is to use gene therapy to replicate the patterns of gene expression that gave him his intelligence.
You could also conduct a whole genome analysis with incredibly intelligent scientists, mathematicians, and engineers who are alive today. In fact, creating intelligent human beings would be much easier with fertile high IQ people who are alive today. There is no guarantee that this effort would produce a genius, but the odds are a lot better than mixing the DNA of two random people.
Research shows that mathematical intelligence and general intelligence are based in biology:
It might sound like I’ve just discovered eugenics, but this plan is not about sterilizing less intelligent people. Instead, it’s focused on creating hyperintelligent human beings capable of saving the world. It’s urgent to create superintelligent beings who are skilled enough to prevent catastrophic world events. The BGI Cognitive Genomics research group is currently conducting a genome-wide association study to identify genetic variants associated with high cognitive ability.
In fact, genetic modification has already been used to create smart mice. Maybe these techniques could be applied to other mammals such as humans:
Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 governs learning and synaptic plasticity via control of NMDAR degradation. (Link)
Genetic enhancement of learning and memory in mice. (Link)
RGS14 is a natural suppressor of both synaptic plasticity in CA2 neurons and hippocampal-based learning and memory. (Link)
