Flanagan Clan Mini-Book Excerpt
One truly original and creative Flanagan is the American inventor Gillis Flanagan, born in 1944 in Oklahoma.
The holder of advanced degrees in an impressive range of subjects that include medicine and chemistry, he was the inventor at the age of only 14 of the Neurophone – a device that transmits sound through the skin to the brain.
The invention earned him a profile in Life Magazine in which he was described as a ‘unique, mature, and inquisitive scientist.’
Flanagan claims that as a small child he had a recurrent dream in which he was visited by aliens who measured his intelligence by placing a silver helmet over his head.
They then told him that if his superior intelligence did not match their expectations then he and the rest of the world would be destroyed.
