Human intelligence (IQ) ... from the mind (soul), from the brain (genes)?

    I believe human intelligence is a characteristic of the mind, it stays with the soul, and its development is one of the important goals in each incarnation.

    From what I've read we are born with an IQ that doesn't suffer major fluctuations over one's life, under normal health circumstances.

    On the other hand I've watched a couple of documentaries, that presented cases when individuals that suffered major traumas acquired new and exceptional gifts in disciplines as mathematics, painting, music, for which they didn't show even some interest before.

    Is the brain only a limiting factor of our soul's intelligence, or more?

    I've noticed behavioural characteristics in some individuals that are similar to those of certain relatives from previous generations, not only parents, but aunts and uncles, grandparents, or further.

    Does the genetical inheritance play a role in the intelligence of an individual? Which and how?

    I agree that intelligence stays with the soul, and should make more sense if you view the design of life relative to karma and while viewing the physical world and the spiritual world as part of a continuum. Meaning, specifically, when a soul reincarnates, it is the karma of that soul that then determines the random mutations of a zygote while forming a new human baby so that the baby is born with genetic dispositions that can support higher intelligence. Whereas, from the same pool of genes from the parents, someone with lower intelligence had an equal chance of being spawned. Meaning, the physical world can be explained in both scientific terms (that describe the physical cause and effect) as well as in spiritual terms, such as because life is designed by angels, for example, so therefore can be explained relative to a design and purpose, which we call "spirituality".

    The karma of the soul would also determine the environment like if a baby should be born to a good family or a bad family ... including extreme examples like babies being born to homeless mother, a prisoner in jail, or to abusive parents. So, for example, a person who's physically abusive to other people might reincarnate into a family who is prone to physically abusing other people as well, which then this newborn would learn lessons about how being abused is not a good experience, hopefully learning empathy as result (and, it is a lack of empathy that allows a soul to abuse another human being). But, then, not every soul would learn their lessons (especially since so many people choose to ignore life day after day such as by consuming lots of drugs like alcohol for example) and then end up being abusive anyways to their children in the future. As such, statistics that say abusive parents tend to have children who abuse their future children ... are those statistics identifying a cause and effect? ... or, a disposition of souls because abusive souls tend to reincarnate into abusive families?

    As such, families might have similar traits due to the arrangement of karma. But, this isn't going to be perfect because there might have been souls who were very intelligent but chose to be evil, hence can create situations where someone smart is born in a horrible family ... so that no one has any clue where that intelligence would come from.

    I guess I'm saying the genes you are born with is an expression of your soul and karma. But, once a soul is born, then new karma seems to prevail in the sense that everything on Planet Earth seems to be caused by the action of people, so therefore creating new karma such as should a drunk driver crash into your vehicle while you were driving, then that would be the bad karma of that drunk driver. As such, beyond birth, you are then subjected to the actions of other people with very real and scientific consequences. For example, if someone decides to kidnap you and experiment with your brain, then your life experience will be altered accordingly; and, this would count as new karma caused by that person. So, if people's personalities change such as due to major traumas, those are scientific effects likely caused by new karma through the actions of individuals. In the same way someone consuming drugs can expect a mind-altering experience ... except head injuries tend to be more permanent. Then, through reincarnation, karma will then attempt to sort out the details for everybody going from one life to another ... until you learn to escape this system, such as by becoming an immortal angel because you qualify.

    And, intelligence is a major part of qualification as angel because not everybody can handle immortality ... where immortality can become hellish to them if their flaws drag out for eternity, forever and ever, and never ending. So, therefore, it makes more logical sense if angels are only chosen from those who can handle immortality. And, hence, this would be the purpose of reincarnation for souls to keep trying and trying, life after life, until individual souls become good enough to handle immortality. And, intelligence is a part of this equation in that intelligence seems to be your ability to anticipate the future. So, meaning, at the present time, intelligence is your capability to judge and decide what your actions would do to the future. Especially if you are very intelligent, you can foresee subtle details that other people can't. It's like a chess player who can anticipate 10 or 20 moves ahead. And, as immortal angels, it's important for your actions and decisions to be concise and serve a purpose ... especially if planets like Earth are implementations of angels to produce more angels out of souls. So, therefore, having intelligence to therefore control your actions and behavior to be good and purposeful is vital for a heavenly experience among angels. Otherwise, your unintelligent blundering would logically cause problems as a matter of time against eternal time, which then would cause tension and friction with other angels which then eventually lead to hellish conditions against eternal time. As such, this seems to be at the heart and purpose of reincarnation so souls can grow in intelligence and become angels as result. And, this would include having the intelligence to understand why good is good ... to, therefore be able to be a good person reflexively and instinctively because goodness makes sense to you.

    And, should good souls be promoted as angels so they can then guide the universe, then an overall direction is achieved in the universe to make the universe better. Quite a clever design for the universe, huh? Hopefully, this makes sense to you.

    Thanks. It makes sense.

    I guess there are also some personality and behavioural characteristics of the individual that are transmitted genetically, like the fact that a five year old niece draws very similar princesses to those her aunt (mother's sister) was drawing at her age, before the niece ever met her aunt.
