Re: Transmission, Inheritance, Emulation 15

"outliers" -See Malcolm Gladwell. Baseline idea - genius is practice - minimal - 10,000 hours. Appr. 3 hrs. a day for 10 years.
Of correct practice. Which easily determines, beyond anything else, who will achieve anything in this area (NOTE: people may object, citing prodigies like Mozart - Gladwell points out his first compositions that are regarded as genius were after he was 21 years old, and that time period figures out to about the 10,000 hour mark.
