Jesus. Thanks for making this whole series too good, I lost my entire Saturday watching the whole thing! I got to this from your Outlast videos, which I also watched the entire series. Freaking addictive. I'd suggest having a playlist for these games, so I can just click on the series, cause that's easier on my TV app. Don't wanna constantly try to find the next episode. Great Job though. Really good. Wish you've done Fallout 3 or Fallout 4 when it comes out. That'd be good.
"It's not that there is "passion" for abstract thinking in genius - they are simply born with incredible depth and amount of abstract thinking whether they like it or not. It's the only way to exist for them. They naturally percieve the world in a depth that is far beyond the comprehension of others." I agree. And they have hard time expressing that, until they find a means to funnel that in some sort of constructive or destructive way. I agree, the "normal" for most people that these geniuses find doesn't not register with them as normal, because in their head, it's illogical. They just understand them as what it is, and nothing more. But when they're sitting around, looking at a bird on branch, when a regular person sees a bird on a branch, they see something completely different. The depth of all of the images and knowledge somehow, incomprehensibly come together like a puzzle in their mind to create a conclusion rapidly. I think it's not the focus, but curiosity and yearning to understand the world and themselves better drives these people to a solution (not genius) that otherwise cannot be conceived by their peers. And sometimes this exact thing is why they feel outlasted from the society, because their desire to find someone else that can see what they can see, and not finding anyone or ability to show or find someone who can truly understand the true meaning behind it all. They will never tell you, not because of bitterness, or arrogance, but it's either you see it in your head the process, or you don't. I think it's a gift to the world, but a curse to the person who is born with it in a very intimate and personal level that nobody can understand.
