    In 2002, Jason Padgett was the victim of a vicious beating outside a karaoke bar in Tacoma, Washington. Upon regaining consciousness, Padgett’s sight was forever altered by a condition called acquired savant syndrome. The brain trauma opened his eyes to an entirely new world-one filled with patterns and strobes, like a stop-motion film. This is a fascinating story into the hidden power of the mind and one man’s inspiring tale of courage and personal triumph. The Acquired Savant is a film by Thomas Petersen.
    This Great Big Film was made in collaboration with our friends at CNN Films. It is one of 12 short films that we will be releasing throughout the year. Stay tuned for more!

omg that’s literally how I feel about everything, I feel like I don’t think the same as everyone else and it makes me feel extremely alone when I realize what i’m doing, and when I’m at school I think about things such as how the schools are teaching math in the wrong way by using numbers, like if we were able to communicate in a different way we would all realize this. One day I was thinking to myself about how math is and specifically geometry has a lot to do with our everyday life and the world around us but I don’t want to talk to anyone about the way I feel because I feel like they wouldn’t be able to understand and I tried to tell my friend about it a while ago when I was around 9 and I just couldn’t say what I was trying to and I even told him that I couldn’t say it because I don’t know how to and ever since then I just felt like it’s not worth sharing because it’s just all nonsense but watching this video makes me feel otherwise, also since I was 7 i’ve been having symptoms of OCD and when I am typing something like this i can’t leave a mistake that I am knowledgeable about because it makes me feel anxious.

This is crazy because it happened to me. When I was 14 years old I was in a automobile accident where I smashed my head pretty hard. That's when it all started kind of in the same way. I had some OCD. But the weird thing is mechanically I was on a whole new level. I was able to look at any object and somehow visualize how it was made down to the littlest details. When I see detail I mean detail. It didn't matter if it was trees or very complex machinery. As I got older it got more intense . Just driving down the road I could see the wind streams in my mind . How the air was working with everything moving in it . The inventions got more and more and more . Everything I was coming up with came out about three to four years later . To this day I just can't stop I'm 41 years old and I build 3D printers and CNC machines and I have never looked at a diagram. It's almost like it's natural. It's nice to know that there is a cause for this because my whole life I just thought it was an obsession. But like a hard drug I just can't stop. Every time I build something new I need something more challenging and harder to do. Just trying to find something that I can't figure out and so far it hasn't happened. Sometimes I think it's a curse others a blessing.

Wow this was amazing to me, stumbled upon this while late night YouTube hopping and same thing happened to me. I used to be a little punk, heavy drug and alcohol user, never applied myself avg intelligence at best then at a party one night i got some guys upset with me and two guys held me down as another beat me senseless and they rotated. Ended up with the back of my head busted wide open, cauliflower ear, cracked ribs, massive bruising in several areas. It wasn't instant like this guy but over the next several months i found myself able to recall information i had heard, read, seen from years ago. I found new information retained easily and could be easily recalled. I became a wealth of knowledge, my personality took a complete 180 it was weird. I didn't think much of it just something i had noticed and would joke with myself "That beating probably gave me a blood clot or something making me smarter and it's going to rupture at some point and kill me" I never knew this was actually a thing until i just happened across this video. THANKS INSOMNIA for sparking my late nights YouTube hopping.

To the question of whether through some process (not through accidents or injuries) such savant or just synesthesia can be acquired, the answer is absolutely, YES!!! How do I know it ??? It is because I have not seen, but heard about the possibilities and experiences of many people in the culture that I belong to and to a much lessor extent I have experienced it myself (not savant like effect), something that can throw light on the question that I started this comment with... The process however, is very well defined at least in my home country, which modern science publicly ignores and secretly studies... That process is definitely related to Kundalini Yoga and Spirituality.... AND No!!! I am not a Yoga practitioner, and not a spiritual practitioner that is defined.... I am still exploring consciously (not always) 'my mind' or should I say 'my self' instead. 😊🤓😎😇
