This video is about child prodigy William James Sidis. His father, Boris Sidis, together with William James, developed the idea that people only use a small fraction of their mental potential. William Sidis chose to live a private and independent life, some saw this as a waste of his potential, but this video aims to show that he continued to be a lifelong learner and thinker. The Animate and the Inanimate is one book that he wrote which tackles interesting ideas in physics and the reversibility of the second law of thermodynamics.
