Despite his young age at only 17 years old, Jaden Smith has become something of a prophet for the modern age. He’s become the posterboy for millennial existentialism, using his Instagram as a conceptual art piece of sorts among other things. He’s fast becoming both a talented artist and an interesting figure, proving he’s more than just the son of a famous actor. Now, he’s taking his brilliant and bizarre pondering to the next level.
Speaking with US Weekly, a close friend of Jaden has said, “Jaden sees himself as a modern-day prophet and is working on a collection of essays.” He added, “They’re new takes on string theory and chaos theory, but more mystical.” The prospect of a book of Jaden’s thoughts is an incredibly exciting one, especially considering what he says on Twitter and gets up to in his parents’ garden. “Jaden thinks he has spiritual ties to people in other dimensions and galaxies, and they are helping him write,” the source explained.
Apparently, Jaden “hopes to have a spiritual following when he releases these.” His ambition can’t be rivaled, and when it comes to abstract thinking, Jaden is, at the very least, incredibly entertaining. After all, he’s honored people think he’s crazy.
