Jacob Barnett is a very talented young mathematician with an autistic
background, and he's all in favor of thinking. I think he's partially
right. Of course, you've got to learn before you can think stuff like he
does. Not everyone can use their brains this easily. But when you've
got the basics down, it's time to allow yourself to think along the
lines YOU want to think, not along college/religion/society approved
lines. Just make sure that the way you think won't hurt anyone.
Here's Jacob's speech. Watch it and tell me what you think about his approach.
Have a great week,
