People with light colored eyes are more "intelligent"
#1
I put the word "intelligent" in quotation because I do not mean intelligence in the sense that you think, well, if you reach the end of my little write-up you will understand. Also you need to understand what I mean by "light colored eyes" because it's more complicated than you think.

This is a book that I highly recommend everyone to read: Dr. Carleton S. Coon's Racial Adaptations. Though nowhere near as controversial and infamous as Dr. Rushton's books, Racial Adaptations contain many nuggets of solid scientifically proven facts that are truly astounding; and, written as a scientist and for scientists, Dr. Coon does not mince words to explain the often technical details or beguile the laborious testings, validatio processes, and logical deductions that lead to the discovery of those facts such as the differences of smell among different races, the differences of earwax among different races, the difference of fingerprints, the differences of codon actions in the DNA of different races and its subsequent differences in the making of proteins, etc.

If I have the time, I will list in detail each and every one of those amazing findings in this book. For it is precisely this book and the works of Dr. Rushton that have completely and absolutely disabused me of the myth that race is only skin deep, that all races are the same, and that all races are just social constructs.

Without any further ado, here are a few facts regarding your eyes. 

First, let's talk about the most obvious one: the color of the iris of your eye.

"Most people of all races have brown or black irises. Only European Caucasoids and a few peripheral mountain peoples have light and light-mixed ones. In Europe, blue eyes are distributed to the west, reaching their climax in Ireland and gray ones to the east, centering in the lands of the Balts and Finns." 

However, Europe is not the only place where blondism (having blonde hair and blue eyes) occur. Dr. Coon notes that in many areas of the Middle East and north Africa, blondism occurs in small patches in the mountainous regions, such as "Rif and Middle Atlas of Morocco, the Aures of Alberia, Jebel Akhadhar in Libya, the Zagros Mountains, and Nuristan (formerly Kafiristan) of Afghanistan, and Sanaa', the capital of Yemen." A geographer should be able to tell that all the places listed above are high mountain regions. 

The reason for this geographical association of dim light with light eyes was explained by the Nobel prize winning neurobiologist George Wald. "Blue- and gray-eyed people see more sharply over long distances than brown-eyed people do and long distances include horizons on the northern oceans."  

In addition, Dr. Coon writes, "Light eyes tend to envision panoramas, dark ones to concentrate on details."

Now this statement, which by itself seems so general and even unfounded--even if it were written by a renowned scientist--would be discarded by any reasonable person who seeks after well reasoned facts and not mere gossips, were it not backed up by rigorous sceintific experimentation, because this is precisely what happened; because numerous experiments were done that proves in fact that there are indeed behvaioral variations among people of different eye color. Among notable results of behavior differences are "Light-eyed subjects are more likely to be self-paced, dark ones reactive. These differences are statistically significant and are patiently genetic because they are equally represented in all age groups, from kindergarten through professional life." 
  
Now remember up til now, we have been talking about the color of the iris of the eye.

Now let's talk about the other components of eye and see how their color differ among the different races.

"The fundus, which is the total picture that ophthalmologists see, is a combination of the optic disc, inner blood vessels, rods and cones, the external melanosomes, perhaps some carotene, and whatever is in the background of the corium." 

According to Dr. Coon, the fundus is of the same color as the person's skin, and this is known to any ophthalmologist that has ever looked at your eyes. And the reason for it is actually very simple: underside of the retina is epidermis, i.e. the outer layer of your skin.

Not only that, but the color of your retina is also the same as your skin color. And the reason for it is not complicated, for "in the embryo, before the incipient eyeball has begun to cup, the retina is part of the skin. Thus the retina itself represents the skin's cuticle and its pigmented underside the epidermis. So the enzyme that determines the color of a person's skin does the same for the retina."

But what does all this have to do with intelligence? So far we have talked about the color of the iris of the eye, the color of the retina, and the color of the fundus. 

Now we can to the meaty part of this chapter of the book, "in 1934 W. H. Wilmer, a noted eye surgeon, published in Atlas Fundus Oculi," in an experiment compared the different human fundi of various human races and animals, including Negroid, Caucasoid, mulato, Chinese, Italian brunet, and macaque, dog, cat, guinea pig, etc. and because of the absorption of the different intensity of light with respect to different colors of fundi, different levels of neural impulses were produced and "one lot goes to the hypothalamus. This part of the brain is the primary control tower of the central nervous system for almost all of the self-starting and self-regulating activities of the body." 

"The rest of the neural impulses flow through a complicated channel into the brain's third ventricle. From there they continue through several different parts of the brain stem into the pineal gland." 

Now I don't want to recopy the entire section of this book because it becomes very complicated here, involving the secretion of several types of hormones from various glands, not just the pineal gland, and within a particular hormone such as MSH, there are beta MSH and alpha MSH and apparently they can affect behavior differently in diffrent amounts. I highly recommend you read this section of the book yourself if you are interested. 

The punch line happened when Patty Simpson of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development of Bethesda, Maryland, demonstrated in an experiment on rats that the removal of pineal glands resulted in different behavior that corresponded with the difference in behavior of blue-eyed and black-eyed students in an experiment that was mentioned earlier.  

So for those of you who are still following, what does this say? It is now demonstrated that people with light-colored irises, fundi, and retinas are more likely to be "self paced" and "reactive". But what do those two words mean? Dr. Coon explains, "self paced" to be "pausing and deliberating before decisions", and " reactive" to be "flies into instant action (in animals), to attack or to flee".

Now it may be a bit of stretch to call those qualities intelligence, but it could vaguely corresponds to a sort of intelligence, being deliberative and quicker to react. But precisely what it means is just what I said.

Very fascinating post, Ling, particularly the segment about the retina/epidermis.

The central point I gather from it is that I need to move to the mountains.
God made me funky...
And I'm glad He blessed me that way.

Mountains are just one of the determining factors. A mountain region with no light is also important. If you go live in a mountainous region but with lots of sunlight you are gonna end up looking like Tibetans

So basically cold mountainous areas. LOL.

Like the Caucasus mountains.

It sounds like it would suck...

But something about it does feel right.

Caucasus mountains are all Muslims. They have dark hair and dark eyes, like the Boston Marathon bomber.  Try Yemen or the Kafir region of Afghanistan. The people there are blonde and blue eyed.

fascinating post, however i dispute the notion that a light eyed people would change to dark eyed based on elevation/light level. i've never seen any studies, evidence, or anecdotal stories about a wholly blue eyed group suddenly having brown eyed babies.

Association, not causation.
