The life and times of Patrick Burleson

The untapped mind

Posted on by Patrick

Below is a video of Stephen Wiltshire, who has autism, drawing the city of Rome from memory after a 45 minute helicopter flight over the city. Oh, it was his first time to ever see it as well.

All I can say is, I really, really wish we could figure out how to tap more of the human brain. It seems like it’s got unlimited ability.

That is so amazing! Especially the part where they said he’d have included MORE detail if he’d had the time!

Amazing, Many times I wonder what could be accomplished by the human mind if we could just learn to use it’s full potential. Is that we spend to much time thinking of mundane things and not concentrating or seeing the bigger picture.
