An Amazing Savant

with 2 comments

189_hard.jpgSavants have always intrigued me…. not only for the special talents they have despite their usual social/developmental limitations, but especially what it means about the human brain and untapped potentials.

Anyway, I found a story about Steven Wiltshire and thought y’all might enjoy it as well. Not only do I appreciate it as it relates to the savant aspects, but also as someone who knows what it’s like to draw details in an image…how tedious it can be, especially when you add in difficult perspectives and odd POV as this guy has experienced.

Enjoy the YouTube video, and here’s his Web site.

  1. Wow! That is insane! Yeah, it’s amazing what is untapped in the brain. It was wild when they laid the drawing of the Colosseum over the photograph.

    I like this one.

  2. SO AMAZING! I’m blown away by how his mind captures visuals so well. I like this one too. How does he remember all those details? Wow.
