Elysian hosts a number of private groups that operate as clubs or online societies. Each focuses on supporting those with unusual cognitive abilities in the highest range for which psychometrics says we can reliably test. That ceiling is normally at the 3-sigma (around the upper 99.9th percentile or 1-in-1000) level, but not always.
In order for the societies to function properly, Elysian screens for civility as well as the specific cognitive ability that they seek to foster. Since behavior is so important, demonstrating the targeted cognitive ability alone—even at a level much higher than the minimum—is not enough to become a member of our closed groups, although the societies can still do outreach work with and for such individuals.
In addition to our social programs, Elysian closely follows the current research on the different dimensions of human intellectual and cognitive ability. Should another testable type of cognitive ability be discovered, Elysian is committed to creating and fostering a society based on that ability, including providing a service to those who demonstrate a 3-sigma aptitude in the new theoretical domain.
