11-year-old with a physics degree sets outrageous goal

Belgian child prodigy Laurent Simons wants to be able to replace as many body parts as possible with mechanical parts to make immortality a reality.

Simons wants to make immortality a reality.

“I want to be able to replace as many parts of the body as possible with mechanical parts. I mapped out a path to get there. You can think of it as a big puzzle. Quantum physics – the study of the smallest particles – is the way to do it. first piece of the puzzle, ”he said.

Simon now wants to “work with the best teachers in the world, look into their brains and find out how they think.”

The young prodigy finished high school in just a year and a half and graduated at age 8.

His interest in classical mechanics and quantum physics dates back a year, but his obsession with the subject has led him to put all other projects on hold and focus solely on achieving immortality.


An 11-year-old boy has obtained a bachelor’s degree in physics at the University of Antwerp.

Young graduate, Laurent Simons, from Oostende on the Flemish coast, Belgium, successfully completed a three-year course in one year, whilst also taking master’s courses on the side.

He outperformed other students by getting the highest distinction possible.

“Simons has been studying for his bachelor’s degree in physics since March 2020, and he now graduated with 85%, which is the highest distinction, » said an Antwerp University spokesperson.

« Immortality, that is my goal. I want to be able to replace as many body parts as possible with mechanical parts. I have mapped out a path to get there. Quantum physics – the study of the smallest particles – is the first piece of the puzzle, » he said.

Simons studied at TU Eindhoven when he was nine years old, and would have been the youngest person ever to obtain a diploma in higher education, however, he left due to disagreements with the Dutch university before graduating.
