Jaden Smith says he is only a scientist and not as "crazy" as many people think he is. He adds that in ten years, no one will know where he would be.

"Me and Willow [Smith] are scientists, so everything for us is a scientific test upon humanity," the 17-year-old actor tells GQ magazine. "And luckily we’re put in a position where we can affect large groups of human beings at one time.”

He also tells the magazine about the “mystery school” he and his sister run, and explains that many of their statements to the media are “experiments,” in which they predict how people will react and wait to see if they’re right.

“It’s fun, bro. That’s what a lot of people don’t realize. It’s fun. It’s so much fun. It’s the best thing,” he says. “People think you’re crazy — I feel like it’s an honor, actually, for people to think I’m crazy. Because they thought Galileo was crazy, too, you know what I’m saying? I don’t think I’m as revolutionary as Galileo, but I don’t think I’m not as revolutionary as Galileo.”

However, Smith repeatedly stresses on the value of education, noting, “What I really encourage kids to do, is learn the things that you want to learn, because then not only will school become fun, but it will make your dreams come true. I rarely go to parties. My whole life is just dedicated on learning and breaking, like, the craziest records of life, and being like one of the craziest human beings to ever exist. That’s me."

And though he’s currently home-schooled, college is on the agenda… and he wants to open his own schools: “I’ll go to open schools, eventually, when I’m like 25 or something. Multiple schools. At the same time, around the world. So, like, two in the United States, two in Europe, two in China, India, Russia, Africa, all at the same time.”

"There’s no end of the process. Life is a process. At the end of the process, hopefully I’ll be dead, you know. Hopefully I just won’t be alive anymore. But I won’t. Because that’s when the process will end. It’s an ongoing journey that you’ll never reach the end of. I’ll never read every single book, or go to every single place," Smith said
