One study that compares data from the Victorian era about 1890 to present day shows that IQ has dropped 14 points in that period, with average human IQ being about 100, that is roughly 15%.
Which is huge. I am not sure how far down Chimpanzees are, can it be far away?
The Victorians loved to measure things and so have quite solid records. They measure Visual Reaction Times as the basis. I will attach another article discussing Reaction Times vs Intelligence (correlates well).
Reaction Times are also a measure of sensitivity, of inner aliveness, of being present and noticing whats going on. Overloaded with sugar, caffeine, porn and violence … the effect of desensitisation of becoming less alive is clear.
The laziness lust greed and other deadly sins produce dull people.
Those who had to work themselves physically emotionally mentally and spiritually honed their being. And this is my guide to living.

This kind of thing is so disturbing to me. It seems we are destroying what is most essentially human in ourselves. There are many ways to document the decline in basic human functionality that has occurred even in the space of a single generation: increased incidence of developmental disabilities and mental illness, declining attention spans, loss of literacy and basic language skills, the failure of institutional education, increased drug addiction, and on and on. I suspect it has more to do with individual and collective trauma, and the pervasive role of neurotoxins, including those in vaccines. It’s an assault on brain development, and children are on the front lines and are the first victims.
