Jaden Smith, the 17-year-old son of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, has revealed his philosophical views on Twitter and in interviews.

Now, he’s decided to compile his thoughts on the world and society into a collection of philosophical essays.

A friend of Smith’s revealed to Us Weekly that “Jaden sees himself as a modern-day prophet and is working on a collection of essays. They’re new takes on string theory and chaos theory, but more mystical.”
