A 11-year-old boy from Belgium just graduated from the University of Antwerp with a bachelor’s degree in physics and with the highest distinction.
With that knowledge, he said hopes to attain "immortality" by turning himself into a cyborg.
Simon was asked to elaborate on his whole cyborg boy idea and provided this information to the press.
“This is the first puzzle piece in my goal of replacing body parts with mechanical parts. I want to be able to replace as many body parts as possible with mechanical parts, I’ve mapped out a path to get there. You can see it as a big puzzle.”
The kid also aimed to further his knowledge acquisition move by studying quantum physics.
“Two things are important in such a study: acquiring knowledge and applying that knowledge. To achieve the second, I want to work with the best professors in the world, look inside their brains and find out how they think.”
Simons is only getting started in his studies.
“This year, he also took some courses from the master’s program. After the summer, he will officially start his master’s degree,” a spokesperson from the University of Antwerp told.
This same kid at the age 9, was an unnamed U.S. college to study for a Ph.D. in electrical engineering.
Simons was studying at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TUE). His parents wanted him to finish the three-year engineering program in 10 months, before his birthday on Dec. 26, so he could be the world's first 9-year-old university graduate.
I guess he is this doing wonders.
