A 9-year old talks about the universe

Amazing. A million and a half views on YouTube. A nine-year old kid talks about multiverses, free will, the odds of intelligent life in the universe.

How did it happen? Part of the answer might be that the parents “treat their kids as if they’re intelligent young people, and not children who couldn’t possibly understand how the world (or universe) works.” These kids are encouraged to think out loud, to say what they think, even if they might be wrong.

(I thought I had posted this three weeks ago but apparently I forgot to push the Publish button. It’s a good thing the story is timeless.)
