Albert Einstein’s Unfinished Symphony
Here is a short documentary detailing some of the final works of Albert Einstein. Many believe that Einstein himself had low latent inhibition which allowed him to make so many incomprehensible connections that other humans beings simply could not.
Many people believe that Einsteins IQ was actually around the 140 mark rather than the assumption that it was much higher. This highlights the fact that IQ alone is not responsible for creative genius, neither is low latent inhibition on its own (as we can see in cases of schizophrenia for example, where there is low latent inhibition but an insufficient IQ to handle it). This helps support the theory that its actually the combination of high IQ and low latent inhibition that is responsible for creative genii.
As Albert Einstein lay on his deathbed, he asked only for his glasses, his writing implements and his latest equations. He knew he was dying, yet he continued his work. In those final hours of his life, while fading in and out of consciousness, he was working on what he hoped would be his greatest work of all. It was a project of monumental complexity. It was a project that he hoped would unlock the mind of God.
