Solving three [Rubik's] cubes while juggling them

After this, it seems to me that the human race has realised its ultimate potential; no further progress is possible. We might as well all go back to bed.

Some things I see, I think: yes, you're doing that very well. But I understand what you're doing, and I could, if not do it myself - I could understand how to train to get there. Like running a marathon in not-much-more-than-2-hours. I'm never going to do that, and even if I trained I couldn't, but I can roughly understand what's going on. With this, I can't even imagine my brain and hands working well enough to get anywhere close to this.

Bloody hell.

oh for crying out loud...

If you can't do it maybe you could try to program a robot to do it.

For the benefit of humanity of course.

Not that difficult. First, learn to solve a Rubik's cube one handed, with each move not taking very long.
Second, learn to juggle.
Can't do either - can barely catch a ball lobbed at me - but in principle....

Ya know how, before computers, people with that kind of had homebuilt radios, or complicated model train layouts, or very complicated love lives --- always having to find some way to burn off that need to use that ability to think in complexity?

Well, I think this video must be the kind of thing starship pilots do, when born before their time.

Philip, I have an even simpler method: First, learn to juggle and solve three Rubik's cubes simultaneously. Done! :)

It'd be really cool if he'd have them solved all at the same time, and not just one by one. When that happens, will I be willing to concede (from my armchair) that the human race has realised its ultimate potential.

BTW, I think Gavin can do this too.
