I know a man who got knocked out in a fight and he turned into a math wiz afterwards. How did that happen?

He was never good in math before that. But after he got kicked in the head and got knocked out, he became a math genius after that. How did that happen?

    Most likely, there is something dormant in everyone, something that he tapped into, .

    In addition to head injuries, mental disease has been known to reveal latent abilities. And others have done studies suggesting that TMS can temporarily bring out unusual mathematical and artistic skills in apparently normal people.

    i think that's the guy that's a fraud. he didn't really become good at math. he developed a fixation on geometric patterns (probably as an anxiety related defense mechanism) and became good at drawing them. then someone explained the geometry from a mathematical perspective and he started telling people he was a genius at math.

    he's doing parlor tricks akin to the guy who can calculate the number of the day of any point in history. it's a parlor trick anyone can do with a little practice.
