...so he says,
"I need the myxl targ plinkle gop to onkatik shoosilfar."*
You are confused. You don't understand. He stares at you.

*This sentence may not make sense because it is nonsense. Or it may not make sense because you cannot understand the Genius Principles it contains.

The Questions
1. Is the only reason that you do not understand because you are stupid (not smart enough)?

2. Or, is it possible that you don't understand because Einstein is stupid (not smart enough)?

How could it ever be the case that Einstein is stupid? He is a genius, right?

Well, there are at least four reasons that it may be that even though Einstein is a genius that he is stupid in this case.

1. He cannot communicate clearly what it is that he wants. Even if Einstein understands the extended principles of Quantum Mechanics if he cannot explain them in a way that that someone can understand then he is not a genius. A bit more on that -- Imagine if no one except Einstein ever understood Quantum Physics as he understood it. The world wouldn't have changed. He would've been a babbling idiot.

2. He cannot communicate what he wants to _you_. He is not smart enough (even though he's a genius) to understand how smart you are and alter his message accordingly.

3 He's confounded about why you cannot understand. He cannot tell that he is not communicating clearly to you. "Why don't you understand! It's as plain as the quark on a proton, lepton-brain!" A blind-spot (aka ignorance).

4. You are not actually smart enough to understand, but he has chosen to tell someone this message without identifying the audience in the first place. Not genius-level behavior.

Two Points -- (I'm sure there are many more)
Even if you're a Genius, you better know how to communicate.
Even if you're a Genius, you better know how to communicate to your audience.
