The Shape of Time
One thing I found interesting in the article "The Shape of time" was the comparison between talented and genius. One thing the author describes is how talent can be seen from a young age. The mind is able to master techniques and problems more quickly, and the mind grows at a faster rate. Genius is more of an unorthodox and rare method, seen in a few number of people. Genius was thought to not be genetic, rather a phenomenon seen in a rare, and special few. The author then leads to how both genius and talented lead to solving problems faced by man. The author says, "we always may be sure that every man-made thing arises from a problem as a purposeful solution."
