An eighth grader’s physics theory (Amazing video!)

This is, I will readily confess, a departure in terms of the kinds of videos and other content we post. However, I am posting it for two reasons:

First, it is simply mind-blowing. This is an eighth grader! Do you understand what he is saying? I don’t. If you are a physicist or mathematician, however, you just might. Maybe.

Second, he is the son of one of my oldest and dearest friends. This boy is already taking college courses, and one of his professors from last semester says that he readily grasps concepts that his best undergraduate students struggle with. He is, simply put, a prodigy.

He is still too young to qualify for aid to attend university, but it is clear that that is where he belongs—not in four years, but NOW. If you are a university professor or administrator, or if you know someone who is, please pass this along to them. If you need to get in touch with the parents, you may start by going through us at info~at~westernfreepress\dot/com.
