I thought we had an understood concensus on this, but my sister asked 
me, and so I figured I'd go for some official word.

Is this statement true:
Miles' exceptional intelligence (or at least mental abilities) are not 
related to the soltoxin poisoning or any other external event, but are 
natural results of his genetic heritage, and whatever else determines 
these features in everyone.  This does not necessarily apply to his 
manipulativeness, such as it can be distinguished.

How does that sound?  That's a rather more complex version of what I 
told her, but I also said I'd ask for a response straight from the top.

Andrew - who needs to push his sister to finish her school reading so 
she can get started on Memory.
