  1. First, as Seneca said, you can't die a non-natural death – the death you died with is always yours.

    Second, death is just as mysterious as birth, so the term “stupid” doesn't apply to it at all, regardless of the circumstances. It doesn't occur to you to tell someone that they were “born stupid,”does it?�

    Third, just brilliant and unique people like Voltaire, Leonardo, Descartes, Leo Tolstoy, etc. they lived a very solid time by the standards of their time and left quite casually. Rock musicians who jump out of the window under drugs or die in car accidents, drunken actors and shooting poets are difficult to attribute to geniuses and unique people with all the desire. Although, as you know, everything is a matter of terminology…

  2. Truly unique and brilliant people are unique and brilliant because they have a special brain structure.

    Yes, the differences are exactly at the level of the structure. Those parts of the brain that are responsible for uniqueness are usually larger, and they need to be physically located somewhere.

    If the brain is large, more than the standard 1300 g, then the substrate of genius has a place to stay, but still something will suffer compared to the norm.

    A genius is a genius to be radically different from society. And when your machine as a brain has a limited ability to adapt to the requirements of society, what happens is what is mentioned in the question.

    Even in packs of wolves, the most proactive and enterprising are pushed out and never become leaders. In fact, they are given the right to die first. And not always there is even a chance to leave offspring. Only if the environment has changed dramatically.

    Humans are the same monkey packs that have been framed by upbringing. That's all. In human populations, for example in the Netherlands, it is clear that over 120 years the initiative of the descendant comes to naught. And the genus dissolves among its own kind.

    The life span of the dynasty is also about 200 years.


  3. Not all of them. Take, for example, the Nobel laureates in economics – there are literally a few of them who have lived less than 70 years, but many have even crossed the 85-year mark. The founder of the modern institutional economy, R. R. Tolkien.Coase actually lived for 102 years (and this is without a heart transplant like Rockefeller). I believe that we are still talking about people of art. Here, in fact, we see premature care very often. Then several reasons can be identified.
    First, the load is more typical for actors. Constant employment in the theater and cinema (and even somewhere else) leads to the fact that some Melpomene ministers devote themselves to the cause almost in the format from 6:00 to 24:00 seven days a week. They also carry diseases on their feet, respectively, they get a lot of sores, like Mironov, for example.
    Also, Bohemian people do not shy away from bad habits, and it would be fine if it was limited to alcohol and nicotine, sometimes stronger ones are used (and it's easier for famous people to get it). Plus, often a rampant lifestyle. Apparently, emotions are severely depleted, and thus they have to be compensated.
    Third, well-known musicians, actors, etc. usually have money, which attracts very bad people to them. And sometimes you can't tell who's a friend and who's an enemy.
    And finally, perhaps the constant pursuit of some sophisticated ideal, which may not be ideal at all. If Michael Jackson and Pete Burns hadn't abused their operations, they would still be alive today.

  4. Often, the smarter a person is, the harder it is for them to live. Because he begins to analyze the environment, society, and life more. He thinks more about the meaning of everything, about his purpose or something. In general, it is being driven to the full.�

    As a result, it doesn't hold up. You can't force your nervous system without having some consequences later…
