Willow Smith, 14 and her brother Jaden, 16, are some smart, intelligent and what some might consider unique individuals.
It is no secret that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett’s children are incredibly creative and express themselves in ways many other teens don’t, but in a new interview with T magazine, the duo proves that their individuality is on another level.
During the siblings chat with the publication, not only did Willow admit that she is currently reading Quantum physics, she also admitted that school made her depressed. “I went to school for one year,” the 14-year-old said. “It was the best experience but the worst experience. The best experience because I was, like, ‘Oh, now I know why kids are so depressed.’ But it was the worst experience because I was depressed.”
Jaden also admitted that school is overrated. “School is not authentic because it ends. It’s not true, it’s not real. Our learning will never end. The school that we go to every single morning, we will continue to go to,” he said.
When asked if time was moving quickly, but teens had a seemingly mature, deep answer. “I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist,” Willow explained.
Jaden chimed in, “It’s proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It’s relative to beings and other places. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in.”
He added, “Right, because you have to live. There’s a theoretical physicist inside all of our minds, and you can talk and talk, but it’s living.”
