Interview in Scientific American Mind

The April edition of 'Scientific American Mind' has an interview with me entitled 'Learn to Think Better: Tips from a Savant'. You can read it online here:

Daniel, I can't wait to see what you do next. Writing books and blogs is one thing, but doing interviews?? Amazing! You are redefining the concept of autism spectrum disorder to include the description "anything is possible".

Hey there Daniel. I was already fascinated by a tv show I saw about you and your relations with numbers. Now I read this interview where you talk about your theory of hyperconnectivity and became very surprised, as I had thought something similar before. Have you noticed that the sense of humour often involves the interconnection between ideas and concepts "of normally disconnected thoughts, memories, feelings and ideas" ? Maybe this fact might suggest a connection between the pleasure human beings feel connecting previously disconnected ideas, i.e., sense oh humour, and the development of our intelligence. What do you think ?

Daniel, you fascinate me a lot especially when it comes to learning a new language in a week that you've done a while ago.
Do you think you can learn Japanese in a week? I'd love to hear some Japanese words from you.

I'm your biggest fan and please keep surprising us by being you.

Best Regards,

Your literary work can be so eloquently woven into the fabric of anyone's life - every paragraph of "As Wide As The Sky" is written on a page that somebody, somewhere is finding inspiration.

Your words on creativity brings what lay buried inside the creative conscious to life, and gives it meaning. You have an understanding of life which most people will never have the fortune of grasping, and it is a breath of fresh air to read your words. At the top of my list of things to do in my life is visit France, and by some chance manage to hear you speak. You are a great, great individual, and my hat is tipped.

Thank you and regards,
Brad S
