some of us have trouble with imagination games, (imagine this pen is a rocket ship. uhh....but its a pen), but most are very creative. "outside the box" thinking is inside the box for us.

musical/artistic savants are my favorite. the things they come up with are truly amazing.

this kid's math skills come from a high IQ mixed with a fascination for math and order. he'll go far in life, but there are others who blow him out of the water.

stephen wiltshire goes on a short helicopter flight over a city, then draws the whole thing in almost perfect proportions.

derek paravicini was born blind, but is arguably the best pianist in the world. his brain doesn't filter out any sound information that he hears, and he remembers everything he hears.

daniel tammet is autistic, and he had a bad seizure when he was young. for some reason, the visual part of his brain became linked with the math part. everything "looks" like a number to him, and he can do absurdly large calculations in his head.

they have beautiful minds.

Damn it, thanks for that.... Hearing about these genius kids makes me feel as though I've wasted my life and my intellect. Instead of being a globe trotting dirt scientist I could've done something like that... Damn kids making me feel like dumbass.

My personal theory, which goes along with the reincarnation idea, is that some people simply retain more data in new incarnations than other....maybe even related to "how many times they've been around the block"....

It even explains homosexuality, when you consider that the "soul" simply leans towards one sex or another, regardless of which sex form it is reborn into.

Therefore, perhaps these kids (like other prodigies in music, etc.) simply come back with a bit more information encoded into them when reborn? Just a theory of course, and admittedly, more metaphysical than scientific, but is what it is.
