    All the more amazing for him being autistic. One of only about 100 recognized savants in the world.

    The human brain is a very mysterious thing. The lore is that we use 10% of it, but no one can say for sure. There is no hard and fast data to support that argument. When faced with the ability of a supposedly "defective" brain that can accomplish things like this ... be it in the area of art or math or music or whatever ... we have, all of us who are "normal", to ask, "What is our potential?"

    And therin lies the mystery of creativity I suppose. How many of us have looked at an image or listened to a song or read a poem and said to ourselves, "How did a human brain accomplish that? How could it have come so easily to someone else and seem so impossible to me?"

    Dear Robert, thank you for something to think about, when our grandaughter was very little, out of the blue she drew a perfect picture of her favorite person, SpongeBob, she had no garbage in her perfect young mind to muddle her vision, too bad we can't re-boot
