TRIPLE-THREAT BRAINMAN (opens in new window/tab)
Not Rainman… Phenomenon. Except Travolta had a tumor.

I watched the Discovery Channel documentary on Daniel Tammet. According to Daniel he can see 10,000 distinct objects that represent digits. Its sounds like his brain is calculating in base 10,000 math. His brain converts base 10 digits into images that represent the number in his own base 10,000 math. His brain calculates answers in base 10,000 and then by analyzing the images he sees he give the answer in base 10.

Pretty intense. I’m not sure there’s any way to replicate that for others to experience, seeing that it’s a wholly internal sensory function.
