So basically this 10 year old kid taught himself Algebra, Geometry, and calculus within two weeks. He has Autism but do you think that it is possible for any of us with the time given to complete such a feat? Mind you his IQ is 170.

The only upside to autism is savant level performance in our 'chosen' fields. The higher their functionality the easier and smoother the lessons are. I'm hardly surprised in all honesty, since autism is near evolutionary when a person of high intelligence gets it.

People can have a strain of opposite autism where they are super intelligent instead. Its about 1 in 4 people in the world. This artist in London has autism and he can draw from memory the entire city of London and every single building, skyscraper, landmark will be perfectly positioned, drawn and in the right place all from his memory after flying across London on a helicopter. He didn't cheat because he drew it infront of a crowd of spectators.

Its seen as a blessing and a gift. I know someone in my class has a calculator for a brain, ask him any sum or equation and he'll give you the answer in a split second.

I want that guy's IQ. I would use that intelligence to make a lot of money.

If you don't mind me asking, what is your IQ? I'm just curious, since you have Asperger's Syndrome like this genius kid and you seem to be highly intelligent as well.

This kind of thing seems quite common amongst people with autism, regardless it's pretty impressive.

120 - 140. I probably dropped some due to my lack of brain activity over the past two years. To go further into detail, this child has superiority over me with both natural intelligence and autism functionality.

I see. Yeah, this kid is impressive. I always view genius's as the gods of mankind.

'god' is just a term for something or someone to rule over another. I'd prefer superior, since it isn't nearly as flower-y. However this just reinforces my belief Autism is an evolution of humanity rather then an actual defect. It can hamper and ultimately destroy cognitive and motor skills, but when it doesn't you get results like this. Pure genuine superiority. Thinking of it any other way is impossible for me, since autism gives someone the mean to become so specialized in a certain subject it almost ultimately ends in them being a savant level of their 'chosen' field.
