No coincidences

I believe there are no coincidences in life. I’ve been writing Rubik’s blogs for two years now and the topic of today’s post seem to have found me at the right time.

There have been numerous articles about why the Rubik’s cube is so popular all over the world. It has been used for various activities over the past decades, but I think it stays  popular because it always turns out the cube is a wonderful educational and a helping tool that can be used in many different fields, even ones we don’t yet fully understand.

It hasn’t even been a week that one of my best friend’s daughter was diagnosed with autism. Although this possibility has been raised before, I think this news is difficult to process, simply because – just like a final judgment – we loose all our hope for our child to have a “normal” life.  I recommend  today’s post especially for you my dear friend, and of course to all those who have wonderful autistic children.

You can find the original source HERE. At the end of the article, I added a video of Max.

Autistic boy

SAN DIEGO – One of the fastest Rubik’s cube players in the world lives in San Diego and is 10 years old.

Max Park started playing with Rubik’s cube for a couple of years as part of his autism therapy.

“Initially, the reason to do it was to work with his motor skills,” Max’s dad Schwan Park said.

He got into it so much, he asked his parents to take him to Los Angeles to watch some of the best compete.

“We thought let’s bring him there its good experience,” Schwan Park said.

Park ended up on the competition floor, solving a 6 by 6 Rubik’s cube in less than three minutes.  The time won him a division title and placed him among the best 100 players in the world.

“Some of these kids were college age kids and he was doing that well, that was a surprise,” Schwan Park said.

His mom Miki said whenever Max isn’t doing homework, he spends his off time trying to come up with new moves on his Rubik’s cube.

He’s also working on mastering other hobbies such as stacking cups and training to run a 5K.

“He’s constantly surprising us,” she said.
