The Genius Series showcases the lives of some the world’s leading and original game changers. From Albert Einstein, Pablo Picasso and (soon to be released) Mary Shelley. The idea of the genius series is derived and measured on a weighting based on intelligence and authenticity. It is nothing short of inspiring the next generation of geniuses.
Einstein as a theoretical physicist created, developed and discovered. Picasso put forward creations that generated intrigue and interest. Novelist Mary Shelley on the other hand, took creative writing to the next level in monstrous proportions.
In a very loud of world of technology however, such game changers today are difficult to identify. Going back in time to the beginning might be a means and the gateway to sparking awesome careers.
So let’s have a look at their careers:
A theoretical physicist: Differing to experimental physics, this field uses a mix of mathematical and physical systems, abstracts and objects to explain and predict various natural phenomena. Wikipedia explains more on the subject, also check out The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and their Theoretical Physics Division.
This is a tough education path first up. Getting through a science-based undergraduate or bachelor’s degree, then into a masters and PhD program is the route to this field. The common path is research-based careers which focus on knowledge contribution.
Stephen Hawking boosted the popularity of this field, and notably encouraged a new generation of scientists with his work.

When it comes to creative writing: studying and styling oneself around a leading author is an interesting approach. In this case the works of Mary Shelley would be the focus point even as scary as the scripts may be.
Check out: the well ranked example of the USA's Northwestern University which has a leading creative writing course framework which is setup in their English department.
Whatever you choose for your theoretical studies or future career perhaps taking a step away from the technological noise to look at the past is not such a bad idea.
