Oh great thinker, I've tried doing nothing but I can never tell when I'm done? Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.

So, I'm not sure about this, but it seems like these savants are simply following Ze's orders - not thinking.

finally, all my friends who insist on calling them "artistic savants" instead of "autistic savants" will have a chance to be right!

With me I left off the Savant and went with the precurser of Idiot.
