It is often said that a genius like Albert Einstein only comes around once in a lifetime. That is certainly true for the 20th century and the first two decades of the 21st. The same could be said of Leonardo da Vinci – a multi-talented painter, engineer, scientist, sculptor and undisputed top genius of the 14th century. Why are such geniuses so rare? A popular British priest, entertainer, journalist, television presenter, author and lecturer says it is because both of them are from a parallel universe. Before you scoff, this man is a member of Mensa and a longtime paranormal researcher. There are many who believe this parallel universe theory or a variation of it about genius, world leaders and religious leaders like Jesus, Buddha and Confucius. What leads them to this conclusion? Could they be right?
