Savants

MashaAllah. Savants are known to have genius talents whether it is in music, art, mathematics, or memory in general. Whether they were born this way or acquired it via brain damage, their talents truly are a gift. There is research that we may all have the potential to be savants but because our sensory systems prioritizes our first 5 senses and any other intermediate senses that we may not be aware of such as language, the brain loses a lot information . Therefore, instead of getting 100% of any experience we only get the jist of it. The brain is just so complex, mysterious and interesting. Here are some videos of savants. I urge you to learn more about them.
