[Time]12-Year-Old Expands Einstein's Theory of Relativity, Thinks Can Prove It Wrong - Page 17

I myself am 13, but I always thought I was smart... now I feel sad... and jealous...

The education system trains drones so nobody really gets to use their creative minds. He's not smarter than anybody else on this planet, he's simply got the guts to step outside of this elementary box and explore his own mind. That's what makes a genius brilliant.

You also find that homeschooled kids are often smarter than regular kids. Case and point.

After I get my EE degree and get married and have kids and such, i'm gonna educate them myself, starting with calculus at the age of 5.

If he makes a mistake when copying examples from one his textbooks, how flawed do you think his theories will be?
what problem are you doing?

One thing's for sure; he's got a good head start, but I don't believe this whole theory business he's claiming just yet. Just a cute little story for the media to eat up.
Yes there are a few people doing this. Just saw it on...through the wormhole?..the guy from nyc nicknamed "the plummer" within the community has been working on that for a while, another guy who's a surfer is doing that. The thing about it is that it's so unapproachable, because it's so revered, (think of the anti-heliocentric solar system model when it was first introduced) and because it's so high risk high reward- meaning that someone might risk his whole career working on this problem and never prove it valid or invalid. All they've done is waste their career and their minds.

Okay, now see here, I never claimed to be an expert on the subject of black holes.

Note the preface...

I BELIEVE...

now begone son, you're trolling and if you continue down this path, only bad things can happen.

All the years we were taught "this is the formula and this is how to solve it" without ever being taught how to apply it in real life or what it was used for or what it actually meant. It was nothing but useless equations to me, the education system is a failure. Sure we had triginometry, Algebra, and linear equations but this is calculus which is even more bizarre.
How do you apply it in real life? Does this kid understand what it means?

I tend to agree but it's not 'strickly' true..

For example: Some are naturally musically inclined.. i.e you find some one who has a musically talented parent (one of) but they can't pick it up with the same passion effort..

Same with sports.. Plenty of examples.. .e three brothers.. two are unco and one is just a natural at every sport. and they don't even like sports compared to the other two.

Also a lot comes down to upbringing granted - but 'some' has to do with brain differences also i.e you'd be surprised how many ppl have or are just slightly Autistic - to the point you would never know and they don't even realise either would a profesisonal without a catscan etc etc ..

This can dramatically effect memory and other intrinsic Neurological fuctions and hence perceived smartness..

also keep in mind there are seven types of intelligence not just one

A lot of education whether you know or believe it or not is geared toward the way you think rather than explicit use.. i.e maths and logical thinking.. english and social awareness.. i know very broad examples but you get the idea.

I do agree however that being taught something without explaining the practical use (i.e not how to tell how tall a tree is with this particular formula - as thats impractical for most of us) but a general why this type of thinking and analysis can and will be useful.. i mean a social working or a plumber = totally different skills.. but the educational common is english and math etc and maybe even a little science which encapsulates a bit of 'almost' any profession

sure they - the education system does a poor job of it though agreed..

What I want to know, is how good is he in other subjects.

well there's only one way to find out if he does; give him some WORD PROBLEMS...dun dun dun.

He meant that the kid didn't show any original work in the videos. We don't doubt his abilities, but the title has big implications. Having him solve a random problem wouldn't show that he can prove an expansion theory of relativity either.
