I also see numbers and letters in colour (its called synthesia or sth), but I'm far away from calculating like him just in my head or memorizing 22 000 digits of Pi after having read it once, even though it helps my memory a lot...
Funny thing is his chances of reproducing isn't higher than a good looking drug addict that likes to party around... because there is no selection that favors a guy with this kind of intellect. Really makes me wonder when people say that humans will evolve to be smarter and smarter... I think people will evolve to be more "people smart", because that definitely will give them an edge in reproducing.
if he cant make money in his genious talent fuck his whole talent if i cant use my talent like this to make money im not a genious at all if u ask me i would bank ruped the world banks if i had his talent easy !
He is a memory genius not a real mathematical genius. Genius means solving problems that have defied solutions or using innovative methods to propose more efficient solutions. Grisha perelman is a genius, this guy is a memory wizard.
I'm so fucking jealous. He gets a seizure that tweaks his brain and makes him smarter and I get a tumor non cancerous thank god but makes me fatigue, loss of focus, and other negative affects. That's so cool he has those abilities. Wish I could buy him a beer one day and speak in person. He's interesting
The beauty of this is how, with different wiring, we can understand some things oh so well, and others not at all. As he says, emotionally hi's hindered, but from his perspective other things are incredibly easy.
I read long ago that "smart" people don't work harder, their brains have an easier time expressing their particular knowledge. It's actually easier for them, and they expend less energy.
He's doesn't invent anything beautiful in mathematics and considered as genius. This world don't know that their is very very great difference between extraordinary intelligence of mathematicians and such person who does quick calculations but have no ideas, no imaginations, no Visualisations like mathematicians. Calculations can also be done by a calculator but you can't expect an intelligence from calculators or even computers.
Impression I get is that if he has Asperger syndrome and see landscape for large number ,then it is not mathematical talent but memory wizard,to be mathematical is completely different skills indeed.Temporary lobe responsible for memory such as hippocampus for long term and amygdala for immediate as well as emotional fight or fear ,looks like these regains are highly developed as well as Broca's area for speech and wanacke area of temporary lobe responsible for language are disproportionally highly developed.I would not say it is a gift but make the best out of the disability to be unique.I would like to really relish a chance to look at inside of his brain while he generate numbers for the pi.
Wait...are there any videos of him ACTUALLY calculating something really fast and not just memorizing stuff? Like he talks about how he sees these shapes, but then he takes a really long time to answer the question so he could've done it in his head during that time. I've heard he can calculate really fast, but there seems to be no actual proof of this. Having a great memory is definitely superhuman, but much less interesting than the supposed synaesthesia.
Nature is so fucked up. Some are born with a lot and some are born with less than enough. Soon we will overcome the shortcomings of nature with our science and technology. There will one day be a time when everyone will be equal in body and mind and that only our efforts will create differences between us.
loved this and it's amazing... the multiplication problem is a little fishy. two of the three digits of the one number are 1's. makes it alot easier. i can do it myself but it's pretty painful the mental effort required.
I don't understand how he is portrayed as a numerical genius and then does 131 x 53 in his head as if that is some kind of extraordinary feat. I got it in about 8 seconds. and I don't have his gifts of autism and seizures.
In my estimation he's tapped into extra-dimensional sacred geometry all things are comprised of. He's a synergistic substrate between a four-dimensional field and one or more higher frequential dimensions. He's a walking, talking flow of Fibonacci. He isn't "doing" anything per se. He is simply being what his pineal, chakra system, etc. allows him to be as a functioning operative with one foot on the ground and the other foot above its tangibility, so to speak. What he's able to tap into is available at all times, but is not perceivable given our limited, human faculty.
Can anyone confirm this logic? He's not arbitrarily assigning the numbers with shapes.
All numbers objectively have a shape. Anyone point me the the right direction about this? Doing math the same way as him would be awesome!
He has tapped into something we all potentially have. Only he tapped into it by accident with his seizures as a child. Maybe one day (assuming man lives long enough) humans will be born with this ability in general. It's fascinating how he views numbers. But it's something nobody can learn. Interesting he can't drive. So he must be picking up on millions of things just walking around too.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
