Children-geeks in Russia: examples
Every now and then, on the Internet or on TV screens, there are news about children, not like others. Hardly having got out of a children's cradle, they start to amaze associates with the non-ordinary talents. At the age of 4 they already read books in various languages fluently, and in 6, as if playing, make a scientific discovery, to which, for many hundreds of years, the great gray minds did not reach. At 11 they enter institutes, receive Nobel Prizes and awards. The whole world is talking about them, they are geeks, children with unique characteristics.
Amazing - close by
Mankind is constantly in search of the unknown. We are looking for extraterrestrial intelligence on distant planets, in the expectation that he will share with us the hidden secrets and help to make the greatest discoveries. But how do we behave when the same, surpassing the ordinary average mind, the mind suddenly appears before us in the guise of ourselves? What do we know about the children of riddles? Perhaps, only that geeks are children gifted by nature. The level of intellectual development in such kids is much higher than their peers. This allows them to develop rapidly and already at a young age to make a lot of discoveries or reach certain heights. Famous children-geeks are the property of the nation. But few adults can admit that we not only can not explain the phenomenon of the birth of such kids, but we do not even know how to communicate correctly with such miracle children.
For some reason, we often hear that geeks appear in England, China, India or any other country. Children with a high level of IQ at a young age become professors and challenge the theory of Einstein, play the violin and seek a cure for cancer, create nuclear reactors and multiply six-digit numbers in the mind. But for some reason, we rarely read and learn that geeks appear on the territory of the post-Soviet space. Children with "childless minds" are not born with us? Not at all, just for some reason they are not talked about very much.
Geniuses from the cradle
They are not spoken about today often, but according to statistics in each school and almost in every class gifted children are. Officially there is an opinion that information about them is not given publicity only because excessive attention from the press and the masses can negatively affect the psyche of the child. So this is in fact or not, it remains only to guess. One of the factors of influence can be attributed to the fact that such children after leaving school or before that leave for education in other countries. Of course, there are children-geeks in Russia, examples are known to many. Information about them is quite realistic, but it would be much better if they were given proper attention in the news of the media.
Every child-child prodigy manifests itself at different stages of life. Someone begins to "act", being very small, and someone at a more senior, school age. Each of them has its own preferences, some write poetry, while others work in a scientific laboratory. There are still today children-geeks in Russia, the examples given below will bring us closer to them.
Perhaps, one of the most famous Soviet geeks is Nick Turbin. This girl poetess, her first book "Draft" was translated into 12 languages and had a circulation of 30 000 copies. About her learned around the world, at that time, Nick was only 9 years old. She played roles in films, and after and about herself filmed the film "Nika Turbina: The History of Flight."
In his 10 yearsA ndrey told how the "noctilucent clouds" appeared, and this remained a mystery for scientists for many years. For his hypothesis, a boy from Krasnodar was listed in the Guinness Book of Records. Another example is that children are child prodigies in Russia.
Theatrical artist, dancer, pianist and singer, and he is only 12 years old! Performs works of classics in 6 languages, repeatedly took first place at international competitions, performs at charity concerts. A boy from Moscow, but in 2007 he left for America, and today he is already winning recognition.
She is only 18 years old, and she already works in the scientific and training laboratory in the center of applied nanoelectronics. Daria is a multiple winner of contests and olympiads. She won two semifinals of the main world contest of school students "Intel ISEF". It should be noted that it is from his finalists that many Nobel Prize laureates have already appeared.
Here are just a few stories about what children-geeks are doing and what they are working on. Examples, of course, you can bring a variety of, their many.
They went down in history
Few people know that many famous Russian people were geniuses from birth. Someone was able to prove himself and went down in history, some later forgotten, and others simply remained unrecognized. Children-geeks in Russia were born from ancient times, but that's how they were called relatively recently. These are Pushkin and Griboyedov, Lermontov and Peter I, and Boris Godunov and Tyutchev, Chukovsky, Gogol, Blok and many others.
The smartest person who ever lived on our planet is William James Saydis. His IQ reached about 300 units, while the average person's intelligence ranges from 80 to 100. He was born in 1921 in the United States, in the family of Boris Saydis, an immigrant Jew from Ukraine. He received such an unusual name in honor of the American philosopher, who later became a godfather to the boy. William knew more than 40 languages (according to unofficial data about 200), graduated with honors from Harvard at age 16, at the age of eight he was the author of 4 books, and learned to write before he was one year old. He studied psychology, history and science about the evolution and development of the universe, wrote scientific treatises, which only today are recognized as a science. What is most interesting, he worked as a simple bookkeeper in a small office and panicked that someone would know about his "talent".
From the most diverse corners of the world, there are messages that there are children-geeks. Examples of their lives and incredible abilities, most likely, prepare us for the fact that humanity will soon pass to a radically new level of its development. What this will lead to and what our life will be in a couple of hundred years, it remains only to fantasize.
