Holy crap! This kid is incredible…. Wonder if this is what Emmanuel Kant sounded like in grade school?! 😉 Thx for the ‘wow’ moment, honey! xoxo, l
He is pretty incredible isn’t he?? And so is his friend – who sees colors in music. I just loved these guys.. xoxo
Wow! He is incredible! Thanks for sharing this.
I thought so too!
So much wisdom in such a young body. “But I made be wrong.” Wisdom squared.
My last comment should have read:
So much wisdom in such a young body. “But I may be wrong.” Wisdom squared.
I knew what you meant! 😉
” An endless quest without really knowing what your quest is….”
Pretty much sums up life.
Yup – I’d say so.
Damn he is so wise and so young so many older people could learn so much from him and his brother
I could listen to them all day – and I would imagine that their parents must marvel at their thoughts on a routine basis!
Wow, pretty amazing young man. I bet he keeps his parents on the edge of their seat all the time 🙂
Laughing – I bet! And I love the way his mind just wanders from one amazing consideration to the next.
I finally have the proof to not think the human race is total a fad from this generation. God help me if I were his parents though ahah
There is hope!!! And I would imagine that his parents probably respond often with “I don’t know, what do you think?” – 🙂
Oh smart answer ! I had a friend who told me he used to drive his mom nuts with the question ‘Why’ for e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. They should’ve been playmates.
Great find. Since wisdom can only be obtained through the doing rather than books, and children are constantly “doing” they will appear wiser than the adults. The video with no music would have been better.
This kid is a genius. Incredible.
I just love him
Children are much smarter than society perceives them to be. I think one of the worse things, we (including myself), adults do is not to cultivate their natural intelligence and force them to conform to our reality. Can you imagine what the world would be like if a child was able to simply learn the basics and explore thereafter, to think on their own and to be able to, like the book, Conversations with God suggests, learn concepts instead of subjects? It would be a whole new world. I really believe that. Thanks for sharing this wonderful video.
I think this child, and maybe his friend too, are crystal children… the new sort of children who are being born with wisdom and knowing that are far in advance of our old paradigms of thought and understanding.
Yes Valerie, I’ve read/heard about these children too. I just wasn’t smart enough to connect the two! 🙂
He is a Crystal Child…I am so thankful for these children…the world needs them now!
WOW. Don’t you want to see this young man in 20 years?! He will change the world. Thanks for this great inspiration!
I really believe he will!
Incredible! This is probably how Einstein and da Vinci were as children. Such an inspiration. Thanks for finding and sharing him.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see him as a young man? Clearly he is destined for wonderful things!
Neat kid! Thanks for sharing it. One thing that did strike me is “maybe I’m wrong.” To be able to explore thoughts and state theories AND admit to not having all the answers. Some adult philosophers could learn from him. 8) I may start asking more kids their theories!
🙂 Good idea!
I’d seen this one, & interestingly, read in some comments that ‘what if the boy is just saying all he has been taught from his folks & is not free thinking this way’ and it really, really stunned me still. It was possible….
But it remains, it’s a great capture.
I agree…and if he heard all of this from is parents than hats off to them – they’re engaging their son in some pretty meaningful conversation…
