From Geek to Genius
We know games’ geek or free software’s geek. In fact, a geek is someone who has specialized into a subject and does not want to leave it, because he believes that this area flourishes himself. Genius is interested to every human’s limits.
There is also mobile phone’s geek or TV’s geek, the best is culture’s geek. Everyones are linked each overs with one idea. They do not want to leave their specialty because they master it. Yet, our scientists must be interested in many areas to grow mankind. The geek, as he conceives himself, can not grow science, because his goal is to understand his subject, not to sublimate it. He will just become a cog.
In France, however, it happens that many employees are interested about their activity’s limits, to find new objects. On the other hand, few will be able to diffuse easily their creations, because they are not interested to their idea’s productive aspect. Indeed the spirit of Hamilton, Carnot, List, Carey have allowed France to have a scientific culture, to Germany with the United States to produce growing people better. Yet this story is not taught.
Thus the employee will hand his idea’s production to a noble or a bourgeois, whom will grab the discovery. These nobles or bourgeois may for many not understand either the discovery’s productive or moral value. They will get a simple monetary value for their own interests. Only those who have made a discovery understand it at the best. It is therefore essential for them to be interested to every limits, to learn to learn. Broadcasting licenses, such as Creative Commons, will allow them to save their discoveries’ distribution.
It is therefore easily possible for a geek to become a genius, if he is interested to human’s limits, in his domain. Only this one will see very quickly that it will miss him notions, allowing him to include themes, to create higher hypotheses. He will then be interested to other important limitations.
Studying great discoverers’ philosophy, whom discovered with their experiences, like Kepler and his culture of beauty, the Carnot physicists and the nation-state of Mazarin, Einstein genius’ symbol, are not transmitted. Yet these steps allow the student to understand that is growing.
Many geeks will want to know their domain, without actually growing themselves, also interested in formulas because they do not know enough geometry and history, because they do not understand themselves and do not understand society. Many will get tired of their small desire to grow, then they become intuitive. They will not have found, into their education, our civilization’s foundations. These foundations are access to creative reason for everyone, according to Friederich Schiller, productive reason according to Alexander Hamilton. The creative and productive reason is allowed by the Carnot energy density. These include Lazare Carnot and Gaspard Monge, Nicolas Leonard Sadi Carnot especially.
It is necessary to know that the disciplines, serving to learn society, repress the social, that is to say collaborating with their pupils. We can cite architecture, with its abstract and ugly culture. Then it should be used to build societies. We can also mention the music studies, which is theory before music, driving back the most revolted students, while some have great potential.
Also, geometry makes it possible not only to find formulas easily but, also, to understand up to the infinitely small. Yet, according to history, if we want others to grow, we must grow ourselves. When we love the human and we like to talk to the opposite, it becomes a happiness. The best is to learn to learn to understand the human, to end up understanding themselves, through writing and meditation, thanks to the scientific and political spirit, sublimated by dialogue, explained by Plato.
From your specialty, demonstrate its limits, to improve it.
