Its like carefully depositing one teaspoon full of each of ten very different
colors of paint into a shallow container, being careful to not mix them.
And then just waiting untill sooner or later, through the work of eddy currents,
there will be only one color in the container.
When all is done the genes of the new one color population which is derived from
the original grouping of ten different genetic types, will be less progressive that
the most progressive genes in the original collection.
But more progressive than the least progressive genes in the original collection.
In other words they will reach an average equilibrium.
If you wish you can substitute the word intelligent for the word progressive in the article.

True, world is becoming dumber.
Some parts are reducing their average I.Q. and others are gaining. It depends where they were on the totem pole before the great mixing project began.
At any rate the world average will be less than the highest was. ...except for the group that insulates its members from the process, and/or institutest a process of carefully selecting mates.
