That blows my mind
Holy fuck, he remembered all that? That's fucking amazing. Phenomenal.
Autism opens up weird parts of the brain. I worked with a kid that was 5, he could read better than I could. I worked with another who would make these super intricate scupltures of dragons and shit out of silly putty.
one of my buddies went to church with an autistic guy who could look at a key once and then make a perfect replica of it on a key cutting machine. turned into a real problem because he worked in a hardware store.
there's an app for that
pfft, give me a pen and a year
Seen it before... rediculous shit.
Read up "savants".
wow that was awesome!
sweet merciful crap am i ever envious of his amazing gift
he will be a legend in the future
Savants captivate me... it would be interesting if we all evolved into using our brains that amazingly.
I have a granduncle (grandmother's brother) who can remember dates for everything he has come across in history. We quizzed him once on what day an I Love Lucy episode aired for the first time and he got it right. It's ccrrazzzzyy. He can't take care of himself, but he graduated from college. He's never been tested to be savant material so who knows.
so, where's waldo?
What an amazing gift he has!
My son is 11, and is high-functioning autistic. About 3 years ago his music therapist asks me if I knew that he has "perfect pitch"? I had no idea what that even meant, so she had my son face a wall and starts playing different notes on different instruments with my son naming every note - perfectly. I was just . Now, he just blows his band teacher away each week with some new song he figured out how to play on his sax. It's just so cool.
Check it out when he does a full 360 pan of Tokyo:
absolute pitch is also the ability to sing or play each note perfectly without external reference
