Most thinking that men do are a release, a diversion away, a continuous roll into forgetfulnes and awareness.
For instance, we keep trying to box the world in and how it is, but at different interfaces – morals, science, finance, politics, economics, business, govt… I find he is driven by something invaluable in his heart that aspires to beauty, dignity, truth and simplicity. That he is prepared to drive himself for the values he has, go long extra miles, day in and day out, makes it magnificent.
Orlando Serrell wasn’t born autistic – indeed, his savant skills only came about after a brain injury.
In 1979, then ten-year-old Orlando was playing baseball when the ball struck him hard on the left side of his head. He fell to the ground but eventually got up to continue playing.
For a while, Orlando had headaches. When they went away, he realized he had new abilities: he could perform complex calendar calculations and remember the weather every day from the day of the accident.
What makes Orlando Serrell so unique is that he may indeed hold the key that unlocks the genius in us all. Orlando Serrell did not possess any special skills until he was struck in the head by a baseball when he was 10. And his extraordinary gifts seem to be his only side effect.
Could this mean once a key hemisphere in the brain is stimulated, we can all attain the level of genius Orlando posses and beyond ?
Will time and research really be able to tell ? Do we even need to wait for that ?
