It takes abnormal to be different. It takes different to make changes. From DNA that didnt quite come out right to someone who has an unstoppable obsession, these are the type things that open new doors. Genius is not a normal person working hard, genius is something different. Of course these people are social misfits, and easily abused, they are not on the same plane, they are by nature, different. And most likely for every person we hear about as genius there are multitudes who are idiots as well as many many who are squashed by the machine. A normal person sees a box and puts things in it, a genius sees a box and fills it with their obsession.
