MIND - Paradigm Rhyme: Open_Notes 11

genius - not something a person does or a person has, but the outcome of an effort to try to make a real difference in the world - when that happens and when we recognized it, honour it, celebrate it, cherish it, preserve it, change our lives because of it, we have recognized the reality of genius.

a vision beyond - the ability to see ten things where another sees only one - individual agency - seeing the world in new ways, changing reality - inspired creations - hard to communicate to people seeing the world in the old way - cognitive skills over and above the ordinary - don't look at what is missing, look at what is there, love and acceptance - eccentrics, out of step and out of reach - shutting out the world to solve the world's problems - lifelong permanent non-conformist - driven by a great curiosity - inside the problem, empathy with the problems, new insights, unusual perspectives - seeing the world in a different way - not obsessed with the world's approval - reclusive - value of individuality, idealistic, humanitarian, creative in unusual ways, unique viewpoints, off-center - use of visual imagery in creative thinking.

at the time of breakthrough, crucial moments of discovery, true genius needs support, love, understanding, at the time when they are most alone, to keep from going crazy - using knowledge of other people to effect change in the world - every intelligence is amoral, can be used for both good and bad.
