Most talk about super-geniuses is nonsense. I have found that when stars drop out, successors are usually at hand to fill their places, and the successors are merely men who have learned by application and self-discipline to get full production from an average, normal brain.
I have been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Its a terminal disease with an average lifespan of two to five years post-diagnosis, and scientists dont know what causes it. ALS prevents your brain from talking to your muscles. As a result, muscles die. As a result, every 90 minutes people die. I am a person.
