I have a confession to make: I can’t stop looking at videos about Daniel Temmet. Sometimes he is called Brain Man because of his remarkable memory and knowledge on maths. He is also a savant just as another 25 to 50 more people in the world.
Two weeks ago Bertalan Meskó wrote about superhuman power provided a link to Brain Diseases I wish I had. Anyway, I found my first video about Daniel and it got me into exploring all kind of visual segments that are online.
Why do I keep looking at his movies? Of course I saw the movie Rain Man, in Japanese, but I still got it! I have asked myself this question many times. Here is a try: Daniel is gifted yes, he is remarkable with his mind and he gives all of us insight into the process within the brain. He explains what letters look like to him and apparently number 289 is an ugly combination.
Most of all Daniel is humble, sweet, kind and he is love in action. He is walking love, it is showing all over him. I can’t get enough of it.
If you like what you saw consider looking at Kim Peek, he is better known as the Real Rain Man from the movie with Dustin Hoffman. Kim Peek, the real Rain Man:
