Let's face it, these kids are not your average teens, given their parents are mega-famous, but they've also got acting and music careers of their own to worry about.
While you'd think that would keep them pretty busy, it seems that they're not neglecting their reading of theoretical physics, philosophy and considerations on time and the human condition.
Well, that's the impression that people are getting from their most recent interview with The New York Times where they discussed time, prana energy and, like most kids, decide that school is overrated. This is some True Detective sh** right here.
When asked about their "experience of time" and whether they felt it was moving really quickly with their respective careers making them grow up so fast, they had the following to say:
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.
WILLOW: It's the action of it.
"Because living". Sentence fragment.
They're not finished though. When asked how they got better at their respective crafts, Jaden (16) said:
JADEN: Your mind has a duality to it. So when one thought goes into your mind, it’s not just one thought, it has to bounce off both hemispheres of the brain. When you’re thinking about something happy, you’re thinking about something sad. When you think about an apple, you also think about the opposite of an apple. It’s a tool for understanding mathematics and things with two separate realities. But for creativity: That comes from a place of oneness. That’s not a duality consciousness. And you can’t listen to your mind in those times — it’ll tell you what you think and also what other people think.
WILLOW: And then you think about what you think, which is very dangerous.
Not done yet, not by a long shot, they turned their attention to Prana energy, a concept that has to do with a being's life force, as well as some advice about breathing, given by Willow (14).
WILLOW: Breathing is meditation; life is a meditation. You have to breathe in order to live, so breathing is how you get in touch with the sacred space of your heart.
JADEN: When babies are born, their soft spots bump: It has, like, a heartbeat in it. That’s because energy is coming through their body, up and down.
WILLOW: Prana energy.
JADEN: It’s prana energy because they still breathe through their stomach. They remember. Babies remember.
WILLOW: When they’re in the stomach, they’re so aware, putting all their bones together, putting all their ligaments together. But they’re shocked by this harsh world.
JADEN: By the chemicals and things, and then slowly…
WILLOW: As they grow up, they start losing.
JADEN: You know, they become just like us.
Of course, that all really comes through when you listen to the metaphysical concerns expressed in a song like 'Whip my Hair'. Totally man.
