Daniel Tammet is nothing short of extraordinary. He can perform seemingly impossible mathematical calculations in his head, beyond a standard calculator’s range of decimal places…
Try doing 13 ÷ 97 in your head 🤔
Daniel can speak 9 languages, sees numbers as synesthetic landscapes and can recite Pi to 22,000 decimal places… the list goes on. In this classic documentary, Daniel meets the real Rain Man, and scientists test Daniel’s skills to try to understand how he can do what he does.
If you haven’t seen this documentary before, watch it. It’s honestly one of my personal favourites.
