“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

...and the ultimate which most mediocrities can subscribe to and endorse as their own belief. Just brilliant that a genius is only an opinion based on my own understanding and nothing more! Truly the path of least resistance to leverage what may be very little into allot and create another monument by mediocrity to mediocrity. If an idea can get any more pathetic, I'm certain the GENIUS of mediocrity will find a way. I'm all for democracy but in the case of brain power, there aint non! Rights are not evenly distributed.
Jklint, are you just going to just write sarcastic retorts? Or are you going to back you belief up with some actual insight?

It requires NOT JUST genius but an incredible level of intelligence to create works on that level. Put another way had Mozart no musical talent whatsoever he would still have been a master of an intelligence far beyond that of most people. The greater the genius (the creative agent), the greater the intelligence required (the controlling agent) to "make it sing". Intelligence in collusion with supreme talent is what creates genius.
Jklint, I think what your missing here is imagination. Mozart had a great musical intelligence but the reason he created something great was not because he understood and new allot about music but because he imagined something that no one else had yet. We are all capable of imagining therefore he was not a genius just a person with musical talent and a great imagination. Einstein had a great intelligence of math and physics but with no imagination he would have not created any of his laws. What sets the genius apart is not there intelligence it's their imaginations and the ability to imagine is something we all have.
