  1. Please Google ‘World memory Championship’ where average joes with average memories with the right techniques and practice perform feats of memory that may seem impossible (memorizing 2 decks of shuffled cards in order in under 30 seconds, memorizing random sequences of numbers faster than Daniel etc). None of these mental athletes claim to have savant abilities and many readily admit that they use ‘memory techniques’. Techniques that anybody can learn (and teach your children).
    In fact Daniel participated in the World memory championship in 1999 (not sure about the exact year) and came in at 12th position !!

  2. Hello from Paris,
    Please, go and read the site of Lili Marlene “incorrectpleasures”, she did a real investigation about DT, and never everyone did…even not the scientific…about that DT never wanted to participate to a REAL and scientific study about memory and synaesthesia… I dont want to convince you, but please, read taht booklet, learn about memory and the real of DT, and you will understand a lot of things. Maybe he is an Aspie, maybe. Does he have savant abilities? Yes, but he is not born with it and everyone could acquire it with a lot of work and training. Is he syn? Maybe but no evidence, at least REAL scientific one? Can scientists do wrong diagnosis? For sure… Special brain? Not at all. One of the greatest mnemonist, that is CERTAIN and I admire him for that. Like you I thought he was a genius, but seems to be so wonderful and then I discover he was just a simple human, born like us, and then imagine all of this “genius”, by workin, training, reading and so on. Read the booklet if you can spend 4 dollars and i fyou really want to understand how DT became, with no evidences, even from scientifics… (but nobody tells for the moment, but even the scientifis have doubts…) a “genius”… Yours sincerely Nana. Peace and love.
