Christopher Langan is an independent intellectual known for having the highest IQ in America – somewhere around 200, which is six standard deviations above the norm.
His story is fascinating. Chris is not working within the academy. Instead, he’s splitting his time between ranching and philosophizing.
We spoke about a wide range of topics, including the problems of modern academia, the concept of IQ, and his attempt at a Theory of Everything entitled “The Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe” – or the “CTMU”.
