    In 2002, Jason Padgett was the victim of a vicious beating outside a karaoke bar in Tacoma, Washington. Upon regaining consciousness, Padgett’s sight was forever altered by a condition called acquired savant syndrome. The brain trauma opened his eyes to an entirely new world-one filled with patterns and strobes, like a stop-motion film. This is a fascinating story into the hidden power of the mind and one man’s inspiring tale of courage and personal triumph. The Acquired Savant is a film by Thomas Petersen.
    This Great Big Film was made in collaboration with our friends at CNN Films. It is one of 12 short films that we will be releasing throughout the year. Stay tuned for more!

Quantum physics and time travel became my obsession. Sleeping for 2 days straight I recalled electrical engineering and draw out a one hand keyboard schematic in minutes and a super computer. I think my artistic right Brian or intuitive thinking not getting in the way of logical left. Brian thinking. Algebraic demonstrations about everything was my obsession. I wrote a book in less than 2 days and could mathematically demonstrate my thinking about each topic. To tiotient conjecture became clear to me

Isaiah 55 : 6-7 King James Version (KJV)6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. • Romans 3 : 23-26 King James Version (KJV)23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. • Romans 5 : 6-11 King James Version (KJV)6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. • Romans 6 : 23 King James Version (KJV)23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. • John 3 : 16 King James Version (KJV)16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. • John 14 : 6 King James Version (KJV)6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. • Romans 10 : 9-13 King James Version (KJV)9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. • 2 Peter 3 : 9 King James Version (KJV)9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. • Ephesians 1 : 13 King James Version (KJV)13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, • Ephesians 2 : 8-9 King James Version (KJV)8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. • 1 Corinthians 15 : 1-5 King James Version (KJV) 1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:

Tacoma is a mean, nasty town boy. I toured through there with my band and we got some dirty looks, bad crowd, then the next morning a S.W.A.T. team stormed our hotel room and pointed Ar-15's at us because someone had called in a police tip that I looked like a guy who had been robbing banks in the area. But even without the S.W.A.T. experience I got really angry negative vibes from that place. I'd say Wichita and Tacoma are my two least favorite towns in the United States.

I see things different from everyone else. especially mechanical and complex machines. My mind figures out how things work and what make the function happen. I have repeatedly told my teachers and parents that this happens. They told me I was just young and it was imagination. Then a teacher sends me to a doctor to have my mind and IQ checked. My brain lights up on both sides in random places, and my IQ I will not say, but I did fall into the .01% of all humans lvl. The doctor thought I must have cheated and sent me home. unlike today where they find someone and help them develop. They did nothing for me.

Why does everyone think it's because of the "brain trauma", it could be because of staying in the dark for long time and sleeping resulted by depression. It could be just a kind of epiphany, which usually happens the same way for people in the temples, mountains, caves, monasteries which go for spiritual retreat and practice meditation for long time.
