Will and Jada Smith-Pinkett are raising two of the most brilliant teens we’ll probably ever see in mainstream media.
Jaden, 16, and Willow, 14, have been in the news quite often lately. Willow raised eyebrows and sparked concerns when she snapped a photo lying in bed with a shirtless 20-year-old man. Jaden has also had his share of the “controversy spotlight” when he allegedly attempted to enter into a nightclub for adults to hang with his bad boy pal Justin Bieber. In some ways, these two are very typical teenagers in that they are constantly pushing the envelope and are chasing the thrill of life.
In many other ways though, these two teens are atypical in that their level of intelligence is arguably more intellectually intriguing than some college professors, who’ve been indoctrinated and are virtually confined to their beliefs through research and theories. Jaden and Willow still have youth on their side and aren’t fully committed to believing in one thing more than another.
In a recent interview with T Magazine, the teens discuss quantum physics, time, and their music.
Check out the intellectually intriguing interview below:
I’m curious about your experience of time. Do you feel like life is moving really quickly? Is your music one way to sort of turn it over and reflect on it?
WILLOW: I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist.
JADEN: It’s proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It’s relative to beings and other places. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in.
WILLOW: Because living.
JADEN: Right, because you have to live. There’s a theoretical physicist inside all of our minds, and you can talk and talk, but it’s living.
WILLOW: It’s the action of it.
