The Sound of the Rain, Man !

Link from Christian Hauk to a Grauniad article, in response to my previous post about the blind guy hearing in colour.

(BTW, you need to link all your non-blog stuff to your new blog site, Christian)

I’ve been following a thread of many posts based on reading about what neurological and psychological abnormalities tell us about the reality of normal perception and consciousness. This Richard Johnson article about an autistic / epileptic savant adds to that thread. Unlike Kim Peak, the original Rain Man, Daniel Tammet can explain how he (believes he) executes his mental feats. Very interesting.
