Dr. Neil DeGrasse - Segment of Cosmic Quandaries
I have known my share of extreamly bright people, a few I counted as friends. Many developed earily with the ability to do some rather amazing things, play chess blindfolded, see mathematical patterns in large data sets without the aide of a computer, build devices with hardly more than a rough draft of a plan, and take calculated risks that would scare the bejesus out of most of us. It is unclear if there was any difference between 'normals' and themselves, I expect that the genetic varience might be much smaller than 1%. Many times the expression of genius seemed to depend upon the social environment they found themselves in, but they most times matched their skills with the ability to improvise.
I expect that an alein species could show similar capacities. With a deep basic knowledge of the world, manipulating materials could come nearly second nature. Even if their knowledge is limited, or bound to a context, the willingness to 'never give up', can offer a near continuse cycling for refinement.
I have noticed, for myself, that a focus upon tool building offers the greatest return, and can generate experience that allows refinement in knowledge and fabrication skills.
I would like to suggest, as a modification to our education programs, that 'shop' experience should be added to our science programs. Building hardware can give real insights into nature as can the study of theory.
