Future genius

Baby genius

In genius studies, future genius refers to someone, likely synthesized in the years post 300 AG, or equivalent scientifically-neutral dating system, who []. [N1]

The future genius will:

(a) find the secret principle of the universe;
(b) embody Henry Adams' famous 1910 “call for the aid of another Newton", someone who comes forth to give the “complete solution”, as Adams, who worked on the problem through Gibbs, Clausius, Darwin, etc., put it, to the elective affinities problem: explaining morality, sociology, economics, and history, etc., according to chemistry, physics, and mechanics, via pure mathematics, symbols, figures, and one "common formula"—in a sense, the "new Goethe";
(c) be the final version of Nietzsche’s 1883 prophesized “final Uberman”;
(d) solve the: gravity/electromagnetic force problem, double slit problem, accelerating universe problem, and the spin-coupling problem (see: modern queries)—all integrated with new findings in particle physics, the final version of quantum mechanics, among other new experimental findings that may arise, all subsumed under the auspices of first law (fundamental law) and second law (supreme law) of thermodynamics—the only science, of universal content, "least likely", in the words of Einstein, to ever be overthrow (unless, of course, it is overthrown).
(e) they will know, without thought, which of the three elements on the adjacent "BaBY GeNiUS" chemical alphabet shirt, are in their atomic composition (see: human molecular formula; hmolscience periodic table) and will understand the uniqueness of this fact in respect to individuality (see: individuality problem), as embodied in "I think therefore I am", human free energy tables, and human free energy of formation.


The following are related quotes:

“It is absurd to hope that another Newton will arise in the future who shall make comprehensible by us the production of a blade of grass according to natural laws which no design has ordered.”
Immanuel Kant (1790), Critique of Judgment [3]

“If the physicists and the physico-chemists can at last find their way to an arrangement that would satisfy the sociologists and the historians, the problem would be wholly solved. Such a complete solution seems not impossible; but at present—for the moment—as far as the stream runs—it also seems, to an impartial bystander, to call for the aid of another Newton.”
Henry Adams (1910), A Letter to American Teachers of History [1]

“… emergence, the physicochemical, the organismal, the mental and the social. Hence, it till the advent of a few super-Einsteins, theoretical biology must stand as a combination of oppositions—a compositio oppositorum.”
William Wheeler (c.1935), “Essay”

Science has not yet produced the Vignola of its ensemble architecturethe ‘Newton’ called for by Adams.”
Roderick Seidenberg (1950), Post-Historic Man (pg. 163)

“Another option is to admit the inadequacy of all current approaches and to wait for the appearance of the ‘Galileo’ or the ‘Newton’ of sociology to come along with a new approach that will solve all the problems.”
— Jane Azevedo (1997), Mapping Reality [4]

“Where will the next Einstein lead scientific thinking?”
— Chris Quigg (2004), “Physics of the Large Hadron Collider Workshop” (Ѻ)

“The physics of the point that existed 13.7 billion years ago is mostly beyond our imaginations, not to mention our conceptual tools. Gravity, electromagnetism—all the forces at work around us did not have an independent existence. Matter as we know it didn’t exist. With everything that would become the universe packed so tightly in one spot, there was an enormous amount of energy. In such a universe, the physics of small particles, quantum mechanics, and that of large bodies, general relativity, were somehow part of a single, overarching, and still unknown theory. Just what that theory is awaits the next Einstein.”
