After Brutal Beating, Man’s Field of Vision Fills With Fractals

Quantum-hand-crunchGives “knock some sense into you” a whole new meaning.

Via ABC News:

Working behind the counter at a futon store in Tacoma, Wash., is not the place you would expect to find a man some call a mathematical genius of unprecedented proportions.

Jason Padgett, 41, sees complex mathematical formulas everywhere he looks and turns them into stunning, intricate diagrams he can draw by hand. He’s the only person in the world known to have this incredible skill, which he obtained by sheer accident just a decade ago.

“I’m obsessed with numbers, geometry specifically,” Padgett said. “I literally dream about it. There’s not a moment that I can’t see it, and it just doesn’t turn off.”

Padgett doesn’t have a PhD, a college degree or even a background in math. His talent was born out of a true medical mystery that scientists around the world are still trying to unravel.

Here’s Padgett explaining in more detail what he “sees”:

And here is the type of stuff he draws as a result:









It reminded me of the image from last year, captured by scientists, showing the individual chemical bonds between atoms:

See what I mean?

Along with, because this is Disinfo and we’re no strangers to Sacred Geometry here, Metatron’s Cube:

Might be a bit of a stretch.

Anyway, take some time to check out more of Padgett’s stunning work:

  1. Not sure what happened, but here was the drawing of Padgett’s that I was talking about:

    And, if that doesn’t work, here’s the link to it at his gallery:

    Fascinating. Actually reminds me a lot of the story of David Morehouse, who was recruited into the military’s remote viewing program after being shot in the head. He was wearing a helmet so he didn’t die, but the shot to the head turned on a bizarro stream of information that he couldn’t turn off, and as it turns out, made him a pretty good psychic.

    Wrote a book about it called Psychic Warrior that I recommend.

    That’s amazing. Makes me think of David Barbour’s theories of time. Sounds like he is living in the cracks of Zeno’s paradox, like he tilted just slightly up to the ability to see 4th dimensional time from a 5th dimensional perspective.

    This story is incredible. Beautiful melding of science, art and consciousness.
