I don’t really look into conjectures or hypotheses that are famous, mainly because I am at most times, a contrarian. I decided, to finally read what this so-called Poincare conjecture is about, and realized, that I came to his conclusion last night.

This isn’t the first time I have concluded or hypothesized or theorized at the level of a famous philosopher, mathematician or physicist. At about 16 years old, I deduced an equivalent game-theoretic Pascal’s Wager. There are of course some assumptions about the Wager which affect the conclusion and is more of an exercise in a Christian apologetic than Game Theory, but I use this as an example to illustrate: upon thinking about things long enough, you will arrive at the same conclusions as some famous thinkers of a previous time; this doesn’t require genius, necessarily. Merely reflection.
