Everyone has an amazing talent.

....probably about 2% of the human population have discovered it.

I know I haven't.

Those sculptures were amazing. Its strange to think that if we couldn't talk, we could do things like that.

wow another reason not to go to school and it was said by scientists !

'scientists think that all humans have this talent but it has been overlayed by other things like language'

We have a lot of stuff on savants... I'm surprised I'm not sick of it yet. It really is interesting to see how many odd but amazing things can come out of autistic cases and certain damages to the brain.

"We are incredibly stupid compared to what we should be able to do/know!"
thats not necessarily true. yes, this man has extraordinary artistic ability, but he cant read, write, or calculate. his right brain hemisphere was only compensating because his left was damaged. who knows how great a mathematician he could have been, or how "normal" he might have been.

when she talks about the putty he is smiling to himself in the background ;)

its so odd that an injury can trigger this type of reaction in a person...robbing them of their social skills, but compelling them to create beautiful works of art or perform phenomenal computations.

Looks like he shot her a dirty look when she was saying he couldn't sculpt people that well.

My father-in-law is the administrator at a home for people with mental disabilities. One of the residents is a savant, he knows -everything- about baseball. His mind just stores all of that knowledge and he's so interesting to talk to.
