Man Savagely Attacked, Left Unconscious, Aquires Savant Math Skills
Jason Padgett, who had dropped out of school, and never really having any academic pursuits, spent most of his free time sky diving, cliff jumping, and amerced in drinking at the local pub. However this changed in 2002 when he was attacked brutally from behind and knock in the back of the head so severely he was unconscious.
He under went screenings at the hospital and had a CT Scan and thus released on the very same night of his attack. However the next day he noticed something odd, something was different, and he started noticing shapes and movements in ordinary everyday things and became obsessed with fractals and mathematics.
Mr. Padgett is now one of only 40 known people in the world to have "acquired savant syndrome", a condition in which trauma to the head results in the emergence of a remarkable talent in math, art or music.
"I believe I am living proof that these abilities lie dormant in all of us, If it could happen to me, it could happen to anyone" he Said.
