Syndrome a mysterious medical condition in which a victim acquires extraordinary talents. After traumatic head injury. Last week we explored three historic cases of sudden savant syndrome. Edward Weybridge is stagecoach. Accident made him one of the most influential photographers of all time. Jason Padgett developed mathematical genius after. He was assaulted outside a bar. And finally Tony. Sa- Korea was an orthopedic surgeon turned pianist and composer following lightening strike. This week will cover some possible explanations for sudden savant syndrome. We'll discuss whether the brains self healing mechanisms unlock dormant genetic memories. Then we'll look at a little understood. Condition called Cynthia and its connections to Savant Syndrome and traumatic head. Injuries finally will explore whether sudden servants have actually recovered memories from past lives been granted gifts from on high each of these theories trying to explain the unexplainable how a person can instantly become an expert at a skill. They've never studied when you think of savant. You Likely Picture Raymond Babbitt from the movie rainman. And the Raymond is fictional. It's an accurate depiction. The character was based on a real life super savant. Kim Peek Peek was a human google who memorized over. Twelve thousand bucks when the film was being developed the producers and the studio wanted the depiction to be truthful insensitive. They hired Dr. Darrell. Trafford a Wisconsin. Psychiatrist writer lecturer and personal friend of peak as an adviser before rainman brought him notoriety. Trafford had spent five decades publishing books journal articles and giving interviews. He was a leading voice in educating the public about servants. When Trafford had first become interested in the subject savants were sometimes referred to as idiot savants as he came to better understand his patients and their incredible abilities. Trafford pushed people to show more empathy regarding the condition. Dr Trafford's studies of savant began in nineteen sixty two when he started working as a psychiatrist. In the children's unit at Winnebago Mental Health Institute in Wisconsin he oversaw thirty severely developmentally. Disabled children most had been diagnosed with autism during his tenure. Trafford discovered that many of his autistic patients displayed incredible abilities. Children who could barely speak or read were solving complex mathematical equations. That would challenge an adult. A blind woman had incredible timekeeping skills. Despite no access to o'clock they had perfect. Pitch or could create lifelike pencil. Drawings after careful analysis Trafford concluded that one out of every ten autistic patients was also a savant to recap from last week. Savant Syndrome is a phenomenon where a person with a mental impairment displays an extraordinary but narrow skill trevor dubbed the abilities an island of genius because of the way they seem to burst out of nowhere like an island rising out of the sea when Trafford first began his studies. Psychiatrist only recognized congenital savant syndrome or cases where people were born with mental impairments in savant abilities but over time the psychiatric community can't realize that some people acquire these skills later in life usually following some kind of traumatic brain injury. Trafford became interested in sudden savant syndrome after he met Alonzo Clemens. Who'd suffered a brain injury from a childhood fall? The damage left him severely developmentally disabled his. I Q was estimated to be below fifty but the injury also brought an unexpected gift although he'd never studied sculpting clemens had amazing artistic skills and they didn't appear until after he left the hospital. He could look at any animal or a picture of any animal and recreated perfectly in clay. He could even do this if he'd only briefly glanced at his subject. It was like he had a perfect three D models saved in his mind. Trafford was astounded by clemens abilities especially because he couldn't explain where they'd come from it was one thing to accept that some people were just born different like autistic children who are amazing at math. It was something else entirely to look at clemens who'd been an ordinary boy until he was three or four and then spontaneously became an incredible sculptor. Tr- effort desperately wanted to determine what had brought on the change. The solution seemed to lay in clements. Childhood head. Injury Trafford concluded that after an injury or damage the brain could rewire itself unlocking new neural pathways and abilities in the process. This also fit with Trafford's earlier observation of autistic savant S- even today. Scientists don't fully understand what causes autism. But it seems to have a parallel to brain damage. A study published in the two thousand sixteen issue of behavioral neurology suggested that autism and pediatric traumatic brain injury affects the brain in highly similar ways. Trafford theorized that artistic people developed congenital savant syndrome in response to the same kind of brain damage that causes sudden Savant Syndrome in clemens and he didn't think that clemens had anything special that other people didn't he was convinced that savant skills were dormant in everyone. It just took a traumatic injury to uncover the islands of genius lurking just beneath the surface. To test this theory in Nineteen Eighty Eight Trafford compiled all the information. He could find on sudden savant syndrome from their Trafford realized that most of the sudden talents weren't so sudden after all even if the savant had never been taught a particular skill they may have had the potential for greatness from birth stored in your genes to understand this claim. We need to explore the theory behind genetic memory. Or the idea that knowledge or wisdom can be inherited. It's clear that some animals are born with knowledge. They never learned but need to survive. Science calls it instinct take monarch butterflies every year. They migrate from Canada to Mexico and back again. The journey takes months but the adult monarch lifespan is only four to six weeks. This means the butterflies are always traveling somewhere. They've never been crossing skies. They have no familiarity with and yet somehow they know exactly where to go. Trafford's suppose that something similar lurked within the human brain much in the same way. Monarch butterflies know how to get from Canada to Mexico. Perhaps cevantes were born with an understanding of how to sculpt or calculate mathematics or play piano. Of course no one's ever heard of a newborn selling out concerts or filling art galleries so even though people are born with certain skills they're unable to access them. Islands of genius are dormant just out of reach until something like a traumatic brain. Injury knocks them into our conscious mind. Trevor explained through analogy quote. I just purchased a new computer. There are a variety of software programs installed on the computer. If I use the proper key strokes. Those programs will be available inactive but I tend to generally use only those programs familiar to me tailored to my specific needs. A whole cache of other programs are embedded on my hard drive. I just have to know how to tap them like a computer. Preinstalled with applications savant might be programmed with inherited skills in other words a savant musician might have an ancestor who was a great singer or composer or a mathematically inclined savant would be descended from a mathematician in a study of thirty three. Cevantes doctors. David Rife and Lawrence Snyder found. This was often the case. One man developed a severe mental handicap after surviving spinal meningitis. Later incredible new musical talent surfaced notably. His sister was a remarkable violinist. His grandmother was a pianist and two of his first cousins. Were musicians as well. Clearly he came from a musically inclined family in another case a blind mentally handicapped. Nineteen year old developed perfect pitch. His sister was a pianist yet. Another case of familial musical ability with this evidence Trafford could prove that all people were capable of amazing musical or mathematical feats the only problem they had to be severely injured to access those abilities. But Trafford didn't let that stand in his way he was determined to figure out. Exactly how savant skills could be unlocked with that information? He could shape anyone into a genius up next. Trevor it's quest to make all humans geniuses are cast listeners. We have some exciting news. Crime Junkies Ashley. Flowers has a weird and wild new podcast original series. I think you'll really.

"It's his son that is going to build God's house, and he's looking for a son, you think of Abraham for example, sons, right? Yes. But with Abraham so I guess. Any parallels to Abraham needing offspring into son? Well, we do certainly see that when we get to the child that is conceived as a result of this that that child is the child of the will of man as we see with with Ishmail the child born of the will of his son, the next son. Yes. So that's what I'm saying. Yeah. Yeah. Is one I'm just wondering if I think that seems like you could retroactively see that played out that way, but I don't feel. David David, not like, I I need the promise son. Now, I do think that when David intercede on a righteous way. You're the right way. I'm not saying he's doing it. I get okay. Now. I do think when we see David, you know, where God says the child is going to die and then David intercedes and asked that the child not die. I do think that that's very similar to intentionally similar to the way we see Abraham say, oh that Ishmail my lip before you. I do think there's that. But I do think to what we're seeing play out is in James chapter one fifteen fourteen and fifteen James says, but each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire, then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin and sin when and his fully grown gives forth death brings forth death. So we see that the woman the woman she's referred to becomes pregnant and the child will alternate -ly die. It's an upsetting story. And so I I need to tell people. Who are listening to this? Who were hearing me reference the death of the child and just keep moving. I don't mean to spend only little portion of the emphasis on that. We spent a great deal of time on it in the teaching that we did in the women's class. And I would imagine in the men's classes as well. But it is an aspect of the story that is trying to tell us that when when when the serpent says, you will not surely die that the serpent is a liar. That the death does follow sin. Right. And what we see in. This story is the same pattern of Genesis. Where we see I see I want I take. And then the immediate next thing that begins to happen. In verse six is I conceal which is what Adam and eve do. During the high, and they can't we're gonna get to you the exposing of this with Nathan in chapter twelve in just a minute. But I wanted to pause and just remind the listeners they've been following along with this story isn't David Amana after God's own heart like how does this square with that? And I know we've said that we've kind of distinguished, but could we get talk about how does this square with a man of God's own heart because when people know David that's like the bumper sticker on the Davidson, I mean, this is Jen you helped me see this more than I mean, that's the way I would have read these passages until three years ago until you and I set down, and that's what's about this podcast. For me. Is these podcasts are often just kind of listening into conversations that we're actually having as we do theology together. So maybe just a quick side their key. If you're listening to this don't just listen to us have these conversations with Stalin. South. 'cause that's where we learn that. We just read books and coming here, we're learning in the midst of conversation in like, you can't learn something unless you were wrong or didn't understand in the first place. And so this is something I think I've learned well from Eugene is is this idea that that David is this man to be emulated. And there are things that are meant to be just like any character in the bible or Toby learned from or at least gleaned from. But you helped me see that this is not so much man after God's heart. God's choosing than that helps understand even the gospel so much more. I mean that just clarify so much about what is being accomplished for us by the son of David Wright that I don't need to be man after God's own heart. But that God's heart chose me that I'm a man of God's choosing not because of something in me that some chivalrous or brave or wasn't something about me that God saw looked on the quarter of time and said he is a man after my heart. I'm going to choose him. There is nothing. This is again getting back to Calvinism. This is unconditional election. There is nothing about David that conditioned. God. That's predisposed to him. It wasn't that. He was somehow incr- so different than Saul. As a matter of fact, we see a lot of similarities between him and Saul in these especially in this particular, he's going to take. But it's by God's kind mercy that he chose David and he became a man of guts choosing. Well, I think two of the just the lyric in a money fortress. The did we is my favorite him. Did we in our own strength confide? Our battle would be losing wore not the right man on our side the man of God's own choosing. And I think back to that lyric. I've sung it my whole life, and then to find that it was actually embedded here. In verse second same that idea, but it had become obscured in the phrasing of a man after God's own heart. And again, I think man after God's own heart is a way of expressing that idea. But but in its culturally lost on us because we have so many wrong associations about our hearts in about. And we have this strong impulse to say that. The way that David points to Christ is more often in a positive regard than in a negative regarding. I just I don't think we have to do that. I think that the beauty of Christ is apparent in. Both David's successes if that's the right word and his failures will it's much harder. To till the David story the right ways in it is the way it's often told when we start looking for the textual clues and taking these stories in the context of the whole book. I nothing has no other probably no other story in the bible has shifted so much for me when placed in its context than this one. Because before it's like, you can you really have to just kind of ignore the CD parts, David rife for the really good like look shouldn't. We follow David kind of parts of his life. He's after God's own heart. And then you have to look at somebody about she was like well, look at some fifty one. He did confess. That's still a good thing. You like, yeah. They did good things. He also did bad. Bad things. And that's okay. Because that's how everybody, but Jesus has been. Yeah. Jen.
