    An autistic boy who is blind and can barely speak has earned the nickname the 'human iPod'.

    I'd say both a gift and a curse, because he can't see how much people like his music. But he can share his extraordinary hearing and music skills to the world.

    They do say that we only use ten percent of our brains, so perhaps this potential lies in us all.
    Unfortunately,it seem that the only way possible for us to do it right now is for us to go blind first.

    well it seems people with these extrodinary powers first lose sumthing, cause i know sum1, who can memorize a page of text in a few secs and still can reciet the exact words, on the exact lines 5 years from then, but he cant walk or do sports, and some people even believe mozart is like this because he couldn't hear but was able to conjure great music

    Thats not true, we just dont use all of our brain at the same time. But how does he play the piano if he's blind?:amazed
     
  9. Thats false...


    I have no idea how it became so prominent as that and the 25% of the potential of a muscle mass or w/e the so called % is, is infact a myth as well.

    This statement is not false, because it does not state as a fact that we only use ten percent of our brains, but rather, implies that this is a common belief, which you, yourself admit. I'm not here to get into an argument about the specific amount of brain power used by the average human. I was just trying to express the point that whether the number is 10%, 25%, or 30%, it still falls extremely short of 100%, meaning that we are nowhere near utilizing our full potential. When I put forth my earlier statement, I was referring to potential, not actual brain usage.
     
  11. wow just wow


    Shit.... again

    Shit.... again

    But Im sure by "we" use 10% of our brain your implying you.

    Now I'm sorry that I didn't make my earlier statement clearer.
    When I said all of this, I was referring to instances such as:
    1.) Someone with a lot of ability not developing it any further, due to complacency and/or laziness
    2.) Someone with a lot of ability who never actually uses that ability.

    And really, don't fucking insult me when it was a misunderstanding on your part, dumbass.

    Yes, his link proves that his statement would be true if I were, in fact, talking about actual brain usage. When I put forth my statement, I was referring to one's potential to do things.

    I actually read his link, and it holds an undisputable argument, but, to reiterate, we're talking about two different things here.

    He's talking about actual brain usage, whereas I'm talking about one's potential to take beneficial actions and/or cultivate one's own natural ability.
     
  15. Even lazy people use all the parts of their brain. See even though you didn't take time and read the links that doesn't make you right :D

    Thats how autism is....they become intrested in a single thing and become literal experts at it.....

    Also the human mind is not at it's full potential yet mindkind still has much more it can accomplish once tech progresses more.

    It's not very hard, really.

    It doesn't take that much practice to learn to play the piano without looking at the keys. In a while you'll remember which key is where, and you'll just "feel" it automatically when you sit there.

    It's quite cool, actually.

    what's impressive about this guy isn't that he can play without seeing the keys. It's that he has AMAZING musical skill.

    It's a rumour.

    What has happened is that because he lost something, he's gained something else.

    So then its not really anything to him.

    Him being blind is the curse, the other part is irrelevant to him really, its just for his amusement, he enjoys it. Its a gift to us in a way, but not necessarily anything to him, other than that he's getting a lot of attention for doing something that he enjoys, which is always nice.

    There was some British girl that went missing who had a special mark in her eye that looked suspiciously like one of the tomoe in the sharingan.
