I think he just got worked up because you do have a tendency to come off a bit condescending, and state positions so matter of fact (even on occasions when you have been incorrect) that many posters here take your word as golden. Also, my response was only to the tiff between you two, not meaning to implicate I believe this story.

I see a lot of threads I know are absurd, but I trust a fellow poster will straighten it out (because I don't want to be that guy - though I do at times, but I try to debunk one and bite my tongue for the next 9). Just a friendly heads up.

Interesting ability this child has !

I found an article discussing a study done of people who can see in total darkness:

The people who can see in pitch darkness

In their study they kind of determined that people who could see in the dark were blending or mixing the senses to enable themselves to see in the dark. Kind of like a form of Synesthesia.

The article also did testing on those who have Synesthesia to see how they did on seeing in pitch dark.

Color Synesthesia: a persons perceives letters and numbers as colors.

Number Synesthesia: a person sees numbers, days of the week or months perceived as precise locations in space or as a 3 dimensional map.

Some people with Symesthesia taste numbers, smell words or hear colors.

So the team decided to repeat their first experiment with a group of grapheme-color synesthetes — people who always associate letters and numbers with specific colors. The results were off the charts.

All nine of the synesthetes experienced visual perceptions in both trials, even though they were led to believe they wouldn't see anything in the second trial. What's more, the images the synesthetes saw were more defined than the images the non-synesthetes saw: Instead of perceiving a faint shadow, they described seeing something akin to an inverted pendulum, and some even said they saw fingers.

The team then performed eye-tracking experiments on synesthetes and non-synesthetes. Research has shown that you can only have smooth eye movements from side to side if you are tracking an object — if you're not locked on to an object, your eye movements will be jerky. This is actually why physicians instruct patients to follow their finger, Tadin explained.

"If a patient shows nice eye movement, then the visual system is working correctly," Tadin said. "If there's jerky eye movement, then there may be neurological problems."

I wonder if they have tracked the boy's eye movement such as this experiment did to see if it is smooth or jerky as mentioned above. Maybe it has nothing at all to do with his eyes... maybe he is simply using a form of Synesthesia, however I guess the glow of his eyes is the first thing that made them think he had natural night vision built into his eyes.

Seeing or Sensing in other dimensions other than what is expected or perceived as normal of us humans...

Millions of years is not enough for evolutionary traits to develop??


That is utter nonsense. Go back just a few hundred years, you would find yourself surrounded by small people. Go back a few thousand years, and you would be a GIANT amongst the population to be found on nearly any continent on the face of the Earth.

Millions of years ago, mankind was not mankind. We were still in the phase previous to the first fully erect homnid by that stage, so your argument collapses upon that point. What we are today is not an evolutionary backwater, not a millions of years in the making genetic epidemic, but a culmination of millions of years of evolution, and we are not finished yet. The nature of all organisms, is to adapt to their surroundings. Some bioforms have found that versions from much earlier in history, are perfectly adapted to their environments, like sharks, spiders, and the like. Both things have been around as species for millions of years, and generally speaking have changed little since those days.

But humanity as we know it, is only one step on a path, because unlike the shark, and the spider, our circumstances, and indeed the prevailing requirements of our lives, change rapidly, and so do we. Our lives have changed more here on this planet, in the last two hundred years, than at any time in the preceeding generations, what with the change in lifestyle caused by the industrial revolution, and subsequent improvements in technology, as well as the drastic changes in climate and air quality. Comensurate with that, we can expect to see our biology respond to these changing conditions, and indeed, we do see that. The average height for a male is now at least a foot taller than it was four hundred years ago, and that is by no means likely to be the last great change to the human physiology that we will see in years to come.

Wasn't this confirmed fake? Either way he's got cool looking eyes.

His approach is one of established validity, not some YouTube.

In other words confirmation by accredited, independent study.

If this kid was real this video of seeing in the dark would be made by SRI.

Having said that extreme ability is out there… according to the movie Rain Man anyway…
Point being if a child can hear a classical piano piece and replay it after hearing it for the first time, compose music or complex math in their head from an early age, this is an indication (imo) that all of us have these abilities, just that some peoples filters are skewed one way or the other to allow or prevent that.

I hope when we die we can all count tooth picks on the floor in an instant.

a reply to: TrueBrit

I was really thinking about radical things like fish becoming a crawling fish, and then something else. And the people 20,000 years ago were much larger, much taller, and higher intellect than the average person has now, according to a paper some prof wrote about, but it sounded very well thought out and used historically known info to base it on. I think he was hailing from Stanford.

I feel that much of what you point out is just regional people's environments having a bigger impact on their DNA rather than lifecycle evolutionary changes, differences. Like faster adaptations to living conditions can make pretty big changes to the body.

Actually TrueBrit, I am quite overworked lately and don't even remember posting that, or why I felt compelled to- lol, I will defer to your reply being more than good enough for me (to fill in what I'm missing)

Damnit Phage this is the second time this week you have made me kick myself in the arse for taking sources at face value.

This is one I wanted to be true to.

(Note to self: Be even more cautious of information I like or agree with.)

I must be losing my skeptical edge.

Nong’s night vision has sparked interest around the world by vision scientists, evolutionary biologists, and genetic engineers. And this is good news for science as we may eventually be able to use genetic technologies to deliberately create such a condition ourselves.

Is this boy possibly a new part of human evolutionary progress? Hate to use the term mutant but this case is pretty damn cool. Video attached to article. Enjoy ATS.

No, don't be sensationalist.
