New Message : I was doing so well with my diet... and now all I can think about is pie.

ben king : That old man talks like he is taking a dump while talking

Violet Thompson : I'm confused... He gained a great understanding of mathematics and then decided to sell futons.

Viktoras Ikasala : These "two guys" who thought : "let''s go teach him a lesson" ... Did a pretty good job, they tough him well, that's some epic lesson.

N Cybr : they way that blonde doctor is speaking is driving me crazy

El Americano : I thought they were going somewhere with this, then it ended.

10kSubs WithoutAnyVideos : Plot twist: the people who jumped him were his tutors

Erika Rosales : I feel like he and his wife looked like the same person...

TheSupremeCheese 101 : The real question is.. why did they beat him up

can we get 1000 subs no videos : New goal: stand outside of karaoke bars hoping to become a genius.

Will R : those first few days he had are basically my life

ORAORAORAORA : seems kind of a useless ability if he sells futons

Daniel Southerland : So all of this “intelligence” is preprogrammed into the brain? That’s the real mystery. If so, that seems like a predisposition of knowledge. Where does it come from? And so what if I hit a person from ancient times in the head, would they have the same access to formulas that are modern and modern thinking and intelligence. Maybe we are in a matrix.

Volt : 4 weeks later, falls down the stairs Guy: “ this bath water tastes like orange juice”

Anteater Head : Come on I had 2 conccions and I am still Stupid as ever

Oscar Armstrong : This isn't really a genius tho... This is a dude with OCD who finds drawing like that thereputical.

MrCarter'sRods : It is indeed a strange feeling. Yet I do not consider it a gift... rather a curse. I was blessed with a larger brain and a far deeper, and well defined sulci and gyri (The folds and crevices of the brain). Yet I was also born to one day become a giant with a lot of perks in terms of the "genetic lottery". Being 6'8" 385lb with 11% body fat and would run a 4.8 second 40yd sprint. This however caused me to become a meat machine for sports and other social events. This led to me playing contact sports, being a target for a sucker punch if out in a social situation where others were consuming alcohol, and a career as a pro-wrestler. From the age of 16 to 28 I sustained 11 documented concussions and an unknown number that were undocumented. Through this, my brain would heal itself but reroute connections, even though I was unaware of it at the time. At the age of 31, I was attacked and after years of being a target, I learned that it was best to let people hit you until they got tired or over-confident (Through dozens of these experiences, and other head trauma's, not once did I get knocked unconscious.) and make it easier to defend myself at that point. Yet this attack ended up hurting me, where in the past, I rarely felt pain. After a few days, I was having trouble speaking. Motor functions were lessened, and pain skyrocketed and never settled. Worst of all was the constant analysis of everything.... EVERYTHING! Yet I kept it hidden from others. At age 36, I fell ill from an unknown illness. A few months later I lost the use of my left arm. 3 weeks after that, I lost use of left leg. The Dr's tested for everything. From stroke, to neurological damage to my spine from previous damage I received in my youth. After 4 years of looking for answers we looked into the psychological aspect in assuming I might have a dissociation disorder. I enter neuro-feedback treatments only to find out that my brain was firing from point A to point B but was doing so by going through several other points first to get there. After about a month I started to change. The rambling of my mind started to intensify and my perspective of the world became... well... advanced. My IQ and psychological tests went to levels that the team of Dr's never seen before. My intellect grew, but I could not retain much due to memory issues. Actually, I just realized that no one will likely read this, nor do I have the physical ability to continue writing. So I'll just say, I became very analytical at problem solving, yet I constantly doubt my mind because I do not feel as if I should be allowed to see things the way I do. No human being should understand things the way I do. I've been told that I am not normal, yet specialists in physical medicine as well as psychological medicine always look at me as if I am something for them to use as a tool. People say I am not crazy, and that I am the smartest person they know, yet I do not want that. If it is true, then it's definitely not enjoyable. I dont want to be special. I dont want to feel this. Yet everyone else wants me to nurture and grow it for their own desires. I feel as if I was born a few hundred years too early at times. It affects me in so many ways that I couldnt begin to describe. So if I am experiencing what others tell me I am, then you do not want it. It's exhausting. It's painful. Worst of all.. it is what others see in me when they look at me. It has come to be what others see and use to define me. But it's not what I desire. I'm seemingly forced to solve problems for the world, yet I cannot fix my own. No one's mind should work this way, this fast, or this constantly. It's hard to explain in text form... especially when writing with one hand that barely functions. It is part of why what I typed might seem to be missing such massive chunks. I cant slow it down to use in typing form, only in talking.. and I rarely ever recall what I said.

ItCameFromTheSkyBeLo : Math doesn't exist. Its just a language. An in invention to describe our observations. The universe is not math.

ApertureLabTech : I got this same effect when I smoked weed.. No joke. Enhancing your conscious mind and senses so your subconscious mind isn't filtering out what you would normally ignore can cause you to suddenly notice the beauty and patterns around us and especially in nature that would normally seem random. Untapping some of the brains ability can trigger some ultra deep trips into realization about ourselves and the world/universe around us that will humble you to the core.. It can be exciting, mezmorizing and especially terrifying. You have to be careful though.. I believe our brains conscious capabilities are throttled or tapped for a reason as currently our brain and mind can only handle so much. Ignorance is bliss and wisdom, awareness and realization are very straining to the fragile mind and tend to bring along depression and anxieties.

Ben Lee : So the moral of the story get hit on the head or get beat to a coma then you wake up a genius.😀👍

Dolan Com : This video sits in my recommendation for weeks so I had to click

KirzeZ : *I hate math*

austin bevis : I think his wife is his long lost fraternal twin

Clyde Cox : I've been to that futon store.

btrim1974 : The blonde lady is a alien

Sara Bejinaru : "the universe is math" im getting outta here

Swavy Club : 5:30 me when I smoke a fat blunt

Jouko Markula : Well, aint that a kick in the head..

Dylan Schmidt : This guy was just a punk. Got his ass kicked for being a loser. Then realized he should probably go to college instead of being a loser, and found out he was really good at math. If people gained super powers from head trauma that’d be the day.

Mary.J.OK : I'm flabbergasted reading some of the comments. How is it possible for so many of you to miss the most important point?  LISTEN to what Darold A. Treffert says! Make a note of it. I did. Then I found and watched the other lectures of his on Youtube and found the books he has written. Lately I've been reading comments on Youtube and I can't figure out what is wrong with some of the people who write them. Is it a problem caused by the education system? Are more than 50% of people commenting on here trolls who are pretending to be dense? Of course, there's a chance someone will take offence to this comment. If so, YOU are one of the people I'm referring to.

Finoose : Teacher: *draws a circle* Me: _Finally someone understands_

Deneb ien : This video is dangerous. Now every silly kid would bang their head against the wall 😅


Code With Nick : I was waiting for "and fast forward, we all know him as..."

Coccinelle Renaldo : I believe nothing we know is true, because everything, even math, the words we call stuff and language and how we think things work, they were done so by humans who knew nothing really about what was really happening,

Rinoa Super-Genius : 0:26 math is just something we made, the world isnt math, its the other way around. math is a representation of whatever the world is. I find it funny that we just assume that our understanding of the universe is universally true, i bet if we run into another species in our universe they might have very different views on the logic of our world. a lot of these people who say the universe is mathematics, sound just as dumb as if they said the universe is science. its just a process we dreamed up and agree mostly works. however far more math doesnt work than does. the real world cant be summed up in precise numbers, its really messy, which is exactly what youd expect in a place consisting of so many analog events.

Unworthy Servant of Jesus Christ : The universe isn;t math math is a man made construct to brainwash people wake up

iRecklessNinjaZ : This is literally YouTube nowadays... You gotta wait 5 mins into the vid to see the title

Peter B. : OCD. Repetion is the mother of skill.

Bob Bob : 6:43 the music really pissed me off

P Sher : Well he lost the mullet, that's gotta be a 10 point IQ increase at least.

doh1959 : obviously the human race for some reason lost the ability to use its brain to the full capacity

cornelius van boven : Somebody hit me in the head please I Wana be smart!!!!!!

ROTO SCOPIC : ...and thus from this savage beating a champion would arise. Where once he was a mortal man he is now.... SUPERFUTON-MAN 💪🏼

Kenneth Avila : He got hit in the head and afterwards he started drawing lines and washes his hands 30 times a day wow! that doesnt impress me. did he invent anything or calculate a mathematic discovery equivalent to MC square? seems like this video is trash

SeeJay : Yes, I am Accidental too, but no genius tho.

IonlyROBwhite People&Dealers : My son knows the capital of every country and every city n THE WORLD. He can multiply numbers on a dine. He is 8 and I find myself asking him questions instead of google.

Eric Singley : The universe is math because we live in a simulation created by our ancestors. We will ultimately create our own.

Wolfgang Buck : He definitely wised up and git a better haircut.
