An exciting new theory of intelligence, termed Trans-Intelligence, is currently being developed and tested at Baobah Labs, Florianopolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil, by Jussara Figueira, Charles Webb and the Baobah Labs research team. This research is supported by NEOGAP- Núcleo de Estudos e Observação de Gestão, Aprendizagem e Pessoas (Center for Studies and Management Observation, Learning and People), at the Post-graduate Program in Engineering and Knowledge Management, Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina- UFSC (Federal University of Santa Catarina -UFSC), Brazil.
Our research defines Trans-Intelligence as the possible human capacity to reinterpret the apparent literal limits of matter and design/reveal new constructs within perceived reality. In simple terms, a “capacity to acquire capacities” and to “create” or reveal new apparent realities. The general goal of the Baobah research on Trans-intelligence is to test the capacity of groups of subjects to create/discover for themselves new aptitudes in a non-conventional way through the combination of Cinemorphics method with techniques of Alternative Reality Gaming. Our hypothesis is that new individual and group aptitudes may be consciously acquired through the process of the “creation” or revelation of, apparently material, virtual reality constructs of interacting “conscious agents”. Our overall approach is inspired by Donald Hoffman’s theory of Conscious Realism.
