Everyone's talking about this utterly bonkers interview with Jaden and Willow Smith

The craziness of it cannot be overstated.

YESTERDAY, THE NEW York Times’ T Magazine published a joint interview with Jaden Smith and Willow Smith, the offspring of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

And it is completely crazy. Like, truly off-the-wall.

The two teenagers touched on everything from the concept of time to some force called prana energy.

Here’s Willow Smith on how time simply doesn’t exist.

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.

And here’s Jaden waxing lyrical on themes that recur throughout his work.

The P.C.H. being one of them; the melancholiness of the ocean; the melancholiness of everything else.

Jaden also thinks that when you think about an apple, you also have to think about the opposite of an apple. Profound.

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.

Like most teenagers, they think they’re too good for school.

Here’s the deal: School is not authentic because it ends. It’s not true, it’s not real. Our learning will never end. The school that we go to every single morning, we will continue to go to.

As for what they’ll be up to in ten years time? Here’s Jaden.

I have a goal to be just the most craziest person of all time. And when I say craziest, I mean, like, I want to do like Olympic-level things. I want to be the most durable person on the planet.

Best of luck with that!
