The worship of child prodigy and the maintenance of mediocrity actually come from the aging society. On the one hand, homogeneous science provides standardized tests for "intelligence quotient"; on the other hand, the worship and greed of theoretical culture and knowledge encourage people to instill these into children. So, essentially, the education system (especially in East Asia) competes in mediocrity. Then, in order to provide more advantages for children, they try their best to cultivate "prodigies". But such a genius is actually a mirror image of mediocrity. Including many great men in history, it is also an illusion constructed from mediocrity. Therefore, we should criticize mediocrity and the mirror of genius it constructs. And recognize that it comes from a kind of Socratic theoretical culture and homogenized science, as well as an aging society.
