The Brain

I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts recently, I have several I really enjoy, I have several i sorta enjoy and am not sure I’ll continue with, and I have several I feel somehow obligated to listen to. One I’ve been listening to though and do thoroughly enjoy is the Hidden Brain. I always learn something new and interesting, and really how complex our brain is. There was one about this man who hit his head diving into a pool and developed Acquired Savant Syndrome.  It was fascinating to listen to. Hidden Brain – Stroke of Genius Podcast.

Not that I want to get hit in the head, but I could use some acquired savantness with my knitting, if I could figure out a way to never sleep but just knit all evening and night, then go to work, and make beautiful finished objects along the way, I’d be thrilled. I spend so much time thinking about my knitting, planning out my knitting, but not knitting near enough because it is truly an obsession. I guess that’s what you do though when you are obsessed with something you think about it more than you actually do it.

I wonder if there’s ever been an acquired savant knitter?

    Glad to see you back! And I want to be a knitting savant. I think about knitting a lot more than I actually do it. I need to discover a way to get out of having to sleep. I’d make millions.
