I think I may have found an organization that has views analogous with those espoused here at ANUS. Perhaps we should try to establish and build upon a common rapport with them?

Having read many great philosophers over the past ten years (see Bibliography) I feel that I am reasonably well qualified to comment on some common characteristics of 'creative genius'.

i) They tend to live fairly isolated lives such that they have a great deal of time to think, and they are not so indoctrinated with the beliefs of their time, thus they are more likely to create / discover new knowledge.

ii) They tend to be very stubborn and believe that they are right, but this stubbornness is founded on a passion for Reason and Truth.

iii) They believe that things can be understood and explained by Science and Reason. That reason is founded on Principles and their logical deductions which are True if they correspond with our Senses. (Thus opinion plays no part!)

iv) They tend to be both curious and very good at understanding how things work. Often philosophers were also inventors.

v) They tend to be non-specialists with a diversity of knowledge (very different to modern education!)

Point one is interesting. This is thought from beyond the proposphere, the bubble containing the memes of our day. Unfortunately, the rest describes a probable Asperger Syndrome, or certainly an INTP typology which has gifts and drawbacks. Creative genius needs to be adaptive; able to pierce that proposphere veil and engage with society, else its works may languish unseen for generations, or forever.
