When someone does not understand genius, they are frustrated and will project their sense of inferiority onto a genius. In an effort to try to minimize the genius’s mind, they concentrate on something they think they are equipped in understanding instead: the body, the self is the easiest target. Geniuses, be immensely careful of trading in your power for validation.
