Pantomath and People

The word Pantomath is believed to have its origin in Greece; it typically means someone who has an amazing knowledge and interest, more or less in every area of arts, science and mathematics. It means someone who knows it all or has learned everything that is possible. Some doubt the existence of a Pantomath stating, that it would have been known if such existed. But the term implies one  who has vast knowledge in diverse areas of study both in Arts and Science.   Same thing goes with Omniscient; one who knows everything to perfection is called Omniscient. As we all know human mind has vast powers but it is still unknown how much of the  brain power can be utilized. It is said that only a few were able to use 10% of their mind and Albert Einstein is one of them. According to a survey by The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, 65 percent of Americans believe the myth is true. It is always a great fun and honor to meet a pantomath.
