"Give a man a gun and he can rob a bank, give a man a bank and he can rob the world." Can anyone tell me who I am quoting?  I found this with no attribution.

The great paradox of genius is no paradox at all. It is conceit and arrogance. OUR conceit and arrogance.

It is the assumption that the greatest minds will naturally, sensibly, agree with our beliefs and preconceptions, rather than, say, having thoughts and views which we may not understand, or whose importance we may dismiss.

Foolish conventionality may seem all the more foolish to them. Our everyday concessions to common wisdom may seem more false and insufferable to those whose horizons reach further. Geniuses can be as parochial as imbeciles, but both have different thoughts than we do. Our conceptions expect -demand!- that geniuses will agree with us (for we are obviously right), but accept that imbeciles may not hold our views.

The converse seems more likely. Lesser minds may sensibly adopt the opinions of average minds. Should a greater mind?

I've often been called a genius?
This makes me wonder about how low their intelligence is to consider me brilliant?
I don't see it, Dah runs the consortium constantly.
Just because I think out of the box?
That could be what you are explaining in different words Orph.

My thought processes are a combination of a whole lot of Sci Fi and dumb luck!
If I stumble on a concept that's alien to the status quo, it's probably just an old Star Trek TNG script replaying in my head.
