Coming events cast their shadows long before

Soborno’s parents shared incidents from the young genius’s childhood which led them to believe he has a bright future. His mother, Rashidul Bari, who is a physics teacher, recalled an incident from the prodigy’s childhood, “My wife was actually his teacher at the time. One day … she was teaching him one plus one, and he would be responding, ‘Mom, one plus one is two,’” Rashidul Bari said. “And then Mom would go, ‘Then what is one plus two?’ And then he’d say ‘three,’ and then he’d be questioning Mom, ‘if one plus one is two, can you please tell me, what is n plus n?’”

As reported by CNN, he first thought the abstracting concepts were probably normal to solve by children. However, Rashidul’s professor at the time said, “No way, a 2-year-old cannot do that abstraction. You should pay serious attention”.
