S’ THE CURSE OF PERFECT RECALL

You may be asking yourself is the 99th percentile enough

Like Nikolai Tesla ,  S had an  amplified visual sense . S could raise or lower his pulse simply by seeing himself running for a bus or  about to fall into a deep sleep . His memory was so powerful that he could still recall decades-old events and experiences in perfect minute detail  . A sensation that frequently  created confusion in his mind.

What we  know about  S is that he was a Russian journalist born with synesthesia  . S went as far as writing things down on paper and then burning it, so that he could see the words in cinders, in a desperate attempt to forget .The ability to forget is not a bug it’s a feature .
