A beautiful mind
Recently I've become increasingly amazed at how powerful the mind is...it's crazy to think we only use 10% of our brain's capacity and with all of the advancements in science and technology we still know so very little about the brain and it's function. Which brought me to Stephen Wiltshire from London a gentleman who suffers from "savant syndrome" which is a rare condition in which persons with developmental disorders (including autism spectrum disorders) have one or more areas of expertise, ability or brilliance that are in contrast with the individual's overall limitations. Mr. Wiltshire's remarkable ability seemed to be his photographic memory and rendering skills, so detailed he acquired the name the human camera...check it out.
