So, obviously, I am not the only person who is sharing a link related to the 12-year electromagnetic physics student at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. However, I did notice that hardly any article is linking to the video where he actually challenges Einstein’s theory. Most articles have been opting for the Calculus 2 lesson. Which is nothing out ouf the ordinary (…but of course it is very impressive coming for a 12 year old!) As far as lofty challenges goes he also challenges the “Big Bang” theory.
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t find the kid fascinating. Other than awe though, what else do you feel about him? To me, it represents our potential and how far away most of us are from it. Depressing I know. But the depression can fuel motivation if you let it. You may never match this child in the state that he’s in now, but you can get close. I know I’m going to try. Summer goal: Physics!
Actually I just realized reading about him and watching his videos made me feel the same way as when I watched Good Will Hunting.
