-<​blockquote>​If you are going to break with the community it’s very difficult to keep up with that level of neural horsepower if you have any other commitments on your time. So in some sense if you choose the path of the dissident or the heterodox or the crank, you will find that your only hope and chance is to have a really novel idea about how this game goes so that you have some time and some breathing room for everyone else. <​cite>​[[http://​bigthink.com/​videos/​eric-weinstein-after-einstein-we-stopped-believing-in-lone-genius-is-it-time-to-believe-again|After Einstein, We Stopped Believing in Lone Genius.

 +And, of course, nobody’s very optimistic about that prospect because it’s very difficult to do work on one’s own as Einstein did in the patent office. In fact we haven’t seen a second version of his story since his famous emergence from the patent office.

 +However, the fact is that **the traditional community is also stalled out**. So you have two horses, neither of which seems to be capable of finishing the race, and the question at this moment is should we be looking more to the heterodox—running the risk of craziness and cranks—or should we be looking more to the traditional community which seems to have gotten itself in a cul-de-sac that we call string theory, M-theory and super symmetry?  
 + 
 +The jury is out but I think it’s become a much more interesting question because traditionally we would have bet on the experts.  
 + 
 +**But the experts have taken more time researching this theory than any group I think has ever taken to research a theory. And the fact that they have been unable to find anything, in fact, means that perhaps the odds have changed in that race.**
