I'm starting to develop some kind of obsession with being smart and some of you may have read my previous posts about it lol but I do have one question. What makes brains like that of Daniel Tammets to be incredible behond scientific understanding? How can he solve extreme mathematical equations without even knowing the answer? Like 316 in a matter of seconds? He says he sees for example the 31 in one shape and the power 6 in the other shape, he said they slowly come together and another shape forms, that shape is then the answer.... I mean wtf? seriously.... and also I've heard of cases where people get a knock on the head and suddenly become math genius'. There must be a way to surgically alter someone's brain so it functions the same as someone with a disability? There must be a way to stimulate the part of the brain that's responsible for calculation, (just like a computers arithmatic logic unit) and alter the way it works. I'd sacrifice being social and understanding for insane intelligence in a heart beat.
