More blue/black girls

On black skin with blue tones.

I am not sure if the girl below shows the blue skin effect, but I include her because she is rather lovely:

Another woman with skin so dark it looks blue?

I have written about this blue effect and its possible relationship to the optical “Tyndall effect” here.

A long paper and discussion on men vs women in terms of intelligence

 

Sex Differences in General Intelligence

 

 

A comment I made recently on Facebook:

“I wonder too if women in their twenties are out-earning men because men take longer to reach our full potential than women. I have seen data that women are developmentally complete intellectually at 22, but this is not seen in men until they are 30. The whole schooling system works better for girls and young women. Arguably, boys should follow a completely different system, and perhaps be schooled separately.”

In the above paper, I found the following passage of great interest:

“Brain development involves two processes: 1) overproduction of brain cells and connections & 2) elimination or “pruning” of excess connections.

The inflection point (mathematically, the change in curve), the arrow on the graph(s) in question, marks the transition from overproduction (increasing until peak) to elimination (falling from peak). The graphs show a clear lag in this transition for males as compared to females.”

Autism is sometimes suggested to result from an overproduction of brain cells and a failure to “prune” them in the normal way. I wonder if autistic males might show improvement as they age because they follow the slower masculine pattern for pruning of excess brain cells.

 

This is relevant too:

She does it here too:

“Robots like Sophia could develop consciousness within a few years”. (Quite a claim!)
