Yeah, I was blown away by the figure that 1% of the population was savant (but not autistic). If I read that right.
And that we all have that potential at least. I think some of it gets stiffled in education. Like when they force you to conform to certain things (a
necessity unfortunately) like showing your work
Until I was properly conditioned, I always knew the answer.
But that's not good enough, is it?
Did anyone in elementary (before we learn the right way) ever do rudimentary base 6 conversions automatically then convert back visually or basically
see math problems as combinations of grids of dice or some other substitute of visual value? Anything like that? Those visualizations are savant-like
if you did them... and are typically taught out over time. It would be nice to encourage anomolous "genius," but it's just not practical I
This guy though, is soooo on a higher level...
The number two, for instance, is a motion, and five is a clap of thunder.
That's so frailing cool. The scientific holy grail unification theory is in there. It's in his head. He's converted existence to a formula, only
without the formula. Damn he's NEO.
I like this guy's new language too. Seems almost causal based, but it's actually based on sets, supersets and subsets. Like scientific groupings and
subgroupings of all existence.
I can dig it.
I'm quite jealous actually. I wanna talk to h-i-i-i-i-m.
Like everyone has that "thing" in their head they can't adequately explain to anyone right? Well he gets it.
Wouldn't that be awesome for like a day to have someone understand even if all they do is smile?
Ask him like Is Chandler triangle or circle?
Square. Definitely square. Ross is circle. Joey is triangle.
And in an instant you've had a conversation about the essentials of all western art since Shakespeare and transmitted a form of knowledge beyond
He'd be an awesome spades partner at any rate.
