The Man Who Can See the Sacred Grid

This is such a strange, fantastic story that I questioned whether it might be just a misguided man overinterpreting some interesting phenomena, but it appears to be legitimate.

The Man Who Draws Pi: A Case of Acquired Savant Syndrome and Synesthesia Following a Brutal Assault
Berit Brogaard
January 12, 2011

Despite his lack of prior training, JP is the only person in the world to have ever handdrawn
meticulously accurate approximations of mathematical fractals using only straight lines.
He can predict the vectors for prime numbers in his drawings, and his drawing of hf = mc2,
which contains all the style elements of his earliest drawings, is remarkably similar to an actual
picture of electron interference patterns, which he found years after first drawing the pattern

…JP had no math and no interest in math prior to the brutal assault in 2002. He never finished college. He is only now acquiring simple training in mathematics, and his drawings were made many years
prior to that. There is no way in which JP could have learned how to draw meticulously accurate
approximations of mathematical fractals or predict prime number vectors prior to the incident or
his first drawings.

Wow.

Those drawings are amazing.

Reminds me of that other guy who got hit on the head and acquired savant abilities:-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orlando_Serrell


What was interesting was that, unlike with other acquired savants, the effect was purely positive.
That would be cool, just get a knock on the head, and forever after have a perfect memory, work out complex maths in an instant etc.

Jason's drawing of the sacred grid, also known as a Planck lattice, is here:

I noticed that one in the video too Phil because I've been learning about the flower of life lately and that is what this is.

Thanks for sharing!

You're welcome. Yes, the flower of life does appear to be a fractal.

In this video is a simple version of the sacred grid on an ochre rock, engraved over 100,000 years ago. Shamans report seeing the grid when they go into shamanic trance and people going into trance in laboratory studies also report seeing the grid and other fractal images. Fractals are fundamental to our brains and the entire universe.
