This is an insightful article showing current scientific and medical research by Jon Lieff, M.D. (@jonlieffmd) from his blog, “Searching for the Mind”:
“From recent scientific findings, it is certainly possible that quite unusual talents and experiences could be available to everyone. This post will outline extraordinary talents and experiences that may be available to everyone under certain circumstances. It is a summary and update of a series of four posts on research into sudden changes in capacities for extreme memory, mathematics, art and music; changes in body consciousness, and out of body experiences; psychedelic experiences; and peak experiences, changes in meaning, visions, end of life and spiritual experiences. These states are triggered in a variety of ways, but all seem to occur when brain regions are altered that ordinarily inhibit extreme experiences. A recent study showed that the brain uses two important brain circuits in a mutually exclusive way. That is, when one operates the other is inhibited. These two circuits are for task orientation about objects and the default mode network involved in understanding the reasoning of other people. Therefore, it is possible that other circuits are also mutually exclusive and that one has to be shut down for the hidden talents to appear. When we ask the question could everyone have hidden extraordinary talents and experiences, the answer might well be yes.”
