The mystery of the missing GM

I am currently reading a book written by a neurologist on the still relatively unchartered landscape of the human mind (by Sandra Blakeslee and VS Ramachandran called "Phantoms in the brain").

In this article I wrote about the mystery of chess; the mystery of the 64 squares. What I was trying to say but space not permitting is that there is no real mystery at all. The great mystery is why we only look at the technical?

If you can join the dots and acknowledge that there are 4 components to chess. Here. If you can see that chess has only a few variables when it is compared to the variables of the factors that affect human thinking, you will see very apparently that technical is only a small part of the picture.

The mystery of the missing GM is easily solved. Many Countries have done it. All you have to do is to look at the other components. The great mystery is why so many people in our chess world cannot see that. I will hazard a guess in my next posting.
