Every now and then on the Internet or on TV screens there are news about children who are not like everyone else. As soon as they get out of their children's cradle, they begin to amaze those around them with their extraordinary talents. At the age of 4, they are already fluently reading books in different languages, and at 6, as if playing, they make a scientific discovery, to which great gray-haired minds have not reached for many hundreds of years. At 11, they enter institutes, receive Nobel Prizes and awards. The whole world is talking about them, they are geeks, children with unique features.
Amazing - close by
Humanity 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 innermost secrets and help us make the greatest discoveries. But how do we behave when that same, superior to the usual average, mind, mind suddenly appears before us in the guise of ourselves? What do we know about mystery children? Perhaps, only that geeks are children gifted by nature. The level of intellectual development in such babies is much higher than the level of their peers. This allows them to develop rapidly and already at a young age to make a lot of discoveries or discoveries.reach certain heights. Famous child prodigies are the property of the nation. But few adults are able to admit that not only can we not explain the phenomenon of the birth of such babies, but we do not even know how to properly communicate with such miracle children.
For some reason, we often hear that geeks appear in England, China, India or any other country. Children with high IQs become professors at a young age and challenge Einstein's theory, play the violin and search for a cure for cancer, build nuclear reactors and mentally multiply six-digit numbers. But for some reason, we rarely read and learn that geeks appear on the territory of the post-Soviet space. Children with "non-childish minds" are not born with us? Not at all, just for some reason they are not talked about much.
Geniuses from the cradle
They are not often talked about today, but according to statistics, there are gifted children in every school and almost every class. Officially, there is an opinion that information about them is not made public only because excessive attention from the press and the masses can negatively affect the child's psyche. Whether this is true or not, one can only guess. One of the factors of influence can be attributed to the fact that such children, after leaving school or even before that, leave to receive education in other countries. Of course, there are child prodigies in Russia, examples are known to many. It is quite possible to get information about them, but it would be much better if they were given due attention in the media news.
Every child prodigy shows up at a different stage of life. Someone begins to "act", being quite a crumb, and someone at an older, school age. Each of them has their own preferences, some write poetry, while others work in a scientific laboratory. There are child prodigies in Russia today, the examples below will get us closer to them.
Perhaps one of the most famous Soviet geeks is Nika Turbina. This is a poetess girl, her first book "Draft" was translated into 12 languages and had a circulation of 30,000 copies. They learned about her all over the world, at that time Nika was only 9 years old. She played roles in films, and after that, the film “Nika Turbina: The Story of Flight” was shot about her.
At the age of 10, Andrey told how “silver clouds” appear, and this remained a mystery to scientists for many years. For his hypothesis, a boy from Krasnodar was listed in the Guinness Book of Records. Another example of the fact that there are child prodigies in Russia.
Theatrical artist, dancer, pianist and singer, and he is only 12 years old! Performs classical works in 6 languages, repeatedly won first places at international competitions, performs at charity concerts. The boy is originally from Moscow, but in 2007 he left for America, and today he is gaining recognition there.
She is only 18, and she is already working in a scientific and educational laboratoryat the Center for Applied Nanoelectronics. Daria is a multiple winner of competitions and olympiads. She won two semi-finals of the main world competition of school students "Intel ISEF". It should be noted that many Nobel Prize winners have already emerged from its finalists.
Here are just a few stories of what child prodigies are doing and working on. Examples, of course, can be given very different, there are many of them.
They made 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 were forgotten after a while, while others simply remained unrecognized. Child prodigies in Russia have been born since ancient times, but this is how they began to be called relatively recently. These are Pushkin and Griboyedov, Lermontov and Peter I, and also Boris Godunov and Tyutchev, Chukovsky, Gogol, Blok and many dozens of others.
The smartest man who ever lived on our planet - William James Sidis. His IQ reached about 300 units, while the intelligence of an ordinary person ranges from 80 to 100. He was born in 1921 in the USA, in the family of Boris Sidis, a Jewish immigrant from Ukraine. He received such an unusual name in honor of the American philosopher, who later became the godfather of the boy. William knew more than 40 languages (according to unofficial data, about 200), graduated with honors from Harvard at the age of 16, at the age of eight he was the author of 4 books, and learned to write before he was 1 year old. He studiedpsychology, history and science about the evolution and development of the Universe, wrote scientific treatises, which are recognized as science only today. What is most interesting, he worked as a simple accountant in a small office and was terribly afraid that someone would find out about his "talent".
From all over the world, news is heard that child prodigies are appearing. The examples of their life and incredible abilities, most likely, are preparing us for the fact that humanity will soon move to a radically new level of its development. What this will lead to and what our life will be like in a couple of hundred years, one can only fantasize.
