https://www.google.com/amp/amp.live...o-math-genius.html?client=ms-android-metropcs Jason padgett got hit in the head and apparently his brain rearranged itself or opened up neural pathways unaccessible before. Whats even further interesting is how it seems the lower aspects of his personality or consciousness were in the drivers seat before where he was a mindless jock, partyer, troubled relationships and troublemaker etc. Basically inclined towards delinquency. He was a college dropout and now he has pursued a degree in mathematics, interested in physics, chose a wife he wouldnt have before or even met, successful family and healthy relationships, more articulate, thoughtful and humbled etc. All of this worlds away from who or what he used to be. What science should be looking into is the potential genius hidden, locked or inaccessible to most. It does make you wonder why nature often makes the least functional or adept aspects of us the forefront. What a more advanced and better society we would have if we could figure out how to 'free' those potentials and safely. We only use a percentage of our brain at a time. There are countless stories of accident victims whether it be stroke, concussion etc where unlocked musical, artistic, mathematical etc abilities were unleashed.
