Savant syndrome is a condition in which someone with significant mental disabilities demonstrates certain abilities far in excess of average.
After watching SPG’s Beethoven Girl, What are you listening to now? She is a very impressive young lady. I wondered if she was a Savant.
But when I went to look for her, I remembered hearing of a young man (so I went off in a search for him instead of finding out the answer about her) This man took a 1/4 hour helicopter ride over London, Then he went into a room where in 5 days he drew a 7 square mile panoramic view of what he had seen in his short flight over the city. It is notably impressive to remember all the things he saw, and also amazing to be able to draw it. But what I find truly beyond belief is that he drew it to scale including boats that were in water, number of windows on each building including how many floors they have. And was judged by 3 professional’s, An Aerial photographer, an Architect, and a Structural engineer, All who live/work in the London area.
SO, I Dedicate This Post To All The Wonderfully Amazing Talented People On This Little Blue Marble We Call Home.
