  1. Do you see many brilliant ideas waged by Magnus over the board? Well, probably not. What does Carlsen himself think of inspiration and new ideas? “You can play good games and you can win, but flashes of true inspiration are very hard to come by. It feels like making a big scientific discovery in a way. It doesn’t happen very often, at least not with me.” Fair enough. (source here) Now think of a true artist, or a genius, who is without inspiration and new constructive ideas. That simply cannot be true. Period. Risk Among the elements t

  11. I don't know what the Objectivist/correct response to the question in the thread title is but it reminds me of a little story. Nana Mouskouri's talent for music was discovered at the age of 7. She took music lessons but at the age of 12 her parents were too poor to be able to afford her music lessons. The music teacher was so impressed by Nana's talent for music that she gave music lessons for free. Later Nana went to singing school for 8 years. Nana went all over the world, singing in the language of each country, 15 languages. She set a record for the most music sales, worldwide, f
  12. I am glad that there are people telling the truth about Islam. Among them are David Wood, Robert Spencer, Anni Cyrus, Nonie Darwish, Brigitte Gabriel, Ali Sina, Craig Winn, Jamie Glazov, and others. Islam is not defined by the behavior of Muslims, just as Objectivism is not defined by the behavior of Objectivists. David Wood explains.
  13. The cause of intellectual independence is volition. The justification may be great mind. The next question is can a person of average intelligence justify intellectual independence? (Never take anything on trust. This move is wrong.)
  14. There is a dangerous trend all over the world. It is anti-reason and anti-life. Objectivists should be concerned. Jeffrey Smith explains, both audio and text.
  15. I will answer the first question. YES. Kasparov has such a great mind that there is no reason for him to take anything in chess on trust.
