My Favorite Parts From Jaden & Willow's T Magazine Interview

I picked out some of my favorite parts of the Willow Smith and Jaden Smith interview from T Magazine. These also happen to be parts that went over the average person's head. 

WILLOW: I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist.

JADEN: It’s proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It’s relative to beings and other places. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in.
WILLOW: Because living.

JADEN: Right, because you have to live. There’s a theoretical physicist inside all of our minds, and you can talk and talk, but it’s living.

This was on the list of craziest things people read. I'm not sure why though. When we're at work the time moves absolutely slow. It is because we're not in control. During that 8 hours we're doing what someone else wants us to do. However, when we're on vacation we get to choices of doing whatever we want. The time flies by and we just so happen to create an abundance of happy memories during it. You can't create happy memories when you're on someone else's schedule. 

 JADEN: The P.C.H. being one of them; the melancholiness of the ocean; the melancholiness of everything else.

WILLOW: And the feeling of being like, this is a fragment of a holographic reality that a higher consciousness made.

They are just talking about that feeling of pureness that is hard to describe when you are really in a moment of calmness. Have you ever been so excited that it scared you? Us normal people are not taught to hold onto those moments of joy. We're almost taught that we should have those moments of joy because someone else is always doing worse. 

Willow on Her Growth: "Caring less what everybody else thinks, but also caring less and less about what your own mind thinks, because what your own mind thinks, sometimes, is the thing that makes you sad."

Most of the time when people give you advice, it is unsolicited. Most of that unsolicited advice is the opposite of what you already know you need to be doing in order to fulfill your desires. However, it has also been proven that our fear can be our worst enemy. Just think about something you're highly afraid of. That fear of spiders is your mind telling you that you're not brave enough to be near any spiders. Your mind is psyching you out. 

JADEN: Anything that you can shock somebody with. The only way to change something is to shock it. If you want your muscles to grow, you have to shock them. If you want society to change, you have to shock them.

I do believe one of the reasons we rarely see growth in our society is because we're stuck on using methods that have already been proven to not work. 

JADEN: Here’s the deal: School is not authentic because it ends. It’s not true, it’s not real. Our learning will never end. The school that we go to every single morning, we will continue to go to.

Several articles said the school statement didn't make sense, but how could it not? Depending on where school starts at 8 am and ends around 3 pm. School starts in pre-kindergarten and 12th grade is supposed to be the end, unless you go on to college. Learning, however, continues until the day we die. When we absolutely stop learning, we no longer have anything to live for. I've learned a lot more on the streets and through friends than in any classroom. 

WILLOW: That’s what I do with novels. There’re no novels that I like to read so I write my own novels, and then I read them again, and it’s the best thing.
JADEN: Willow’s been writing her own novels since she was 6.

I love the novel part because of childhood. When I had no company and no one to entertain me, I'd spend hours trying to create stories. I didn't write novels, but had enough material before the age of 13 to publish a novella. Too bad no one took me seriously. That's the difference people the average person and the wealthy person. The wealthy person is more alert to what is going on around them and how to use take advantage of that creativity in the moment.
