Can solving Rubik's Cube be learned? I see people solving the cube in under 30 seconds.You think these people have some inborn talent in spatial rotation recognition that only geniuses possess. If someone were to give me a cube that had to be solved in 24 hours to receive a million dollar prize, I don't think I could do it. With so many different starting positions it seems like it can't be taught to the average person. You either have the ability or you don't.
