Part 2 – Autism and the Adult Photographic Memory

Some time ago, I wrote an article called “Proof of the Adult Photographic Memory Hiding in the Shadows of Autism”. It talked about twin autistic savants (referred to as the Rain Man Twins) that could remember everything down to the finest detail, for the entirety of their lives.

That article is quite meaningful, because it points out the different lifestyle they lead in comparison to the majority of the populace. The most outstanding difference was the lack of decision making. They simply didn’t need to make decisions on a daily basis like most people must. They adhered to a regimen, and if something happened that changed their routine, it had disastrous effects.

Well, I now have something else to reveal to you that has been passed on to me by one of my clients. Another autistic savant, Stephen Wiltshire, which is referred to as the “Human Camera”. He draws entire cityscapes from memory. From his unique abilities, he has been encouraged to create a business by supportive family members.

A reoccurring theme that I have observed form the documented cases I have seen, at least most of the savants have some form of autism, and tend to be anti-social – they have problems when they must interact with other people. Stephen Wiltshire expresses this problem too, as he didn’t learn to talk until the age of 5, and was not conversant until the age of 9, which is revealed in this video clip.

As the previous article pointed out, there is plenty of proof that the adult photographic memory is alive and well and doing a lot of great things for people. The second most profound concurrence, and in my opinion is of more importance, is the more you can mentally isolate yourself from the daily trappings of the normal plethora of distractions, the easier it becomes to tap into your natural abilities such as the photographic memory.
