As a person ages there appears to be a sharp decline in creative
capacity/learning ability after the age of 20. I have often heard the examples
of Einstein's discovery of special relativity and Newton's development of
calculus. I wish to know if it is due to some physiological mechanism or a
psychological effect of a change in focus from possibility to real-world
