Fascinating. However, I don't agree with his answer to the first question about kids. I would not say that in other countries kids' creativity encouraged more than in the United States (I am drawing an inference from his answer). I would bet quite the opposite. But the reason why kids in other countries may have better knowledge of math and physics is because they study, and they study, because there is no such nonsense as "good job everyone" when there is no good job done.

Motivation is what kids lack these days. Can't blame them. The teaching form we use is outdated. Eventually mankind will get past that by implanting chips with everything you want to know into your brain. Humans are not going to stop at anything, we'll be more machine than human.

The question is when humans create the "robot" in our image, will it be our first step to our end? The more human the machines will become and yes, they will eventually, that would mean that the machine would be flawed like us humans. Greed. It's a curse.

American children are too scheduled. Almost every kid I know isn't allowed a single free minute, their parents seem to think they need constant, structured activities to keep them out of trouble, active, and out of the fridge. Pathetic.

He is amazing as a teacher.

He admires Newton like a god, but he doesn't admire the God that Newton worshipped. How irrational this is!

So if I see my daughter with the cat under one arm and a pair of scissors in her hand, telling me she's going to play with "Lotta". Should I let her?

One of my highest compliments is to say that I would invite that person to my dinner parties......Neil you have a open invite for forever.

A few months ago I changed what I've always called my "flashes" to AAS (pronounced "as" in front of children) which stands for Atom Awareness Sensitivity.
