Scary Story
Tayangan “The MASTER” di salah satu Tivi Swasta memberi kita banyak inspirasi..Mulai dari Atraksi mengagumkan yang tak jarang bikin jantung berdebar, pelajaran tentang membingkis sebuah program dengan konsep yang entertaining, hingga yang paling penting adalah pelajaran sesungguhnya!! Yakni pembelajaran agar kita bisa memaksimalkan fungsi otak dan juga wawasan tentang istilah-istilah baru yang sebelumnya hanya orang-orang yang berkecimpung di dunia pskologi, medis, dan magic yang mengetahuinya..

Sedikit ngobrolin tentang otak, atau bahasa halusnya adalah akal, nalar…satu unsur yang membuat manusia menjadi spesial di antara makhluk lainnya..sehingga dipercaya oleh tuhan untuk menjadi pemimpin alam semesta.. Otak manusia adalah struktur pusat pengaturan yang memiliki volume sekitar 1.350cc dan terdiri atas 100 juta sel saraf atau neuron. Otak manusia bertanggung jawab terhadap pengaturan seluruh badan dan pemikiran manusia…dari sebuah penelitian terungkap bahwa, manusia normal rata-rata hanya menggunakan 4% kekuatan pikirannya, padahal kita sekarang sudah dibuat terperangah oleh kemajuan peradaban yang ada…bayangkan jika manusia dapat mengerahkan setidaknya 50% saja…apa yang terjadi

Tapi malam ini kita hanya akan ngobrolin salah satu potensi yang dimiliki oleh daya pikir kita…sebuah istilah, yang kalau saja, Joe Sandy sang pemenang THE MASTER…tidak mengikuti acara ini, mungkin masyarakat tidak akan banyak membicarakan kehebatan yang dimiliki orang tersebut..mencoba mencari lewat google tentang arti istilah ini..dan terutama, menyadari bahwa Tuhan menciptakan segala sesuatunya di dunia ini, begitu menakjubkan!!
memang…umumnya kemampuan ini hanya terdapat pada orang-orang yang memiliki ganguan pemusatan pikiran atau autisme…walau justru dari sinilah, kita akhirnya memahami..bahwa Tuhan..maha Adil..tapi sebenarnya 5-10% dari tiap bayi yang lahir di dunia, memiliki potensi luar biasa tersebut..jadi intinya adalah…tiap manusia dilahirkan sangat pintar, hanya sistem pendidikan, lingkungan, dan masa perkembangan yang membuat kecerdasannya tetap, berkurang sedikit, atau bahkan menjadi bebal!!

KITA AKAN NGOBROLIN TENTANG…” Eidetic memory ATAU YANG LEBIH DIKENAL DENGAN PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY” yakni kemampuan akal yang luar biasa dalam mengingat informasi baik mengenai masa lalu atau lingkungan sekitar hingga level detail

Photographic memory

  • ingatan yg sangat tajam

Pernah dengar orang dengan kemampuan yang disebut “photographic memories”. Biasanya kita menggunakan istilah ini untuk menyebut seseorang yang memiliki kemampuan diatas rata-rata untuk mengingat informasi mengenai masa lalu atau lingkungan sekitar. Hal ini pernah di demonstrasikan oleh Stephen Wiltshire. Wiltshire adalah seorang autistic savant dan orang-orang yang mengenalnya menyebutnya “kamera hidup”. Waktu dia berusia 11 tahun dia menggambar representasi yang sempurna dari kota London dilihat dari atas setelah dia naik helikopter, detail sampai ke jumlah jendela di tiap-tiap bangunan di kota London. Mungkin ini yang paling keren dari yang pernah gw liat. Di bawah ada video Stephen Wiltshire memamerkan kemampuannya.

Photographic memory is a rare element that is found in less than 10% of the population. It will often be found in children, and most of them will lose this ability by the time they become adults. One of the problems with having a photographic memory is that you may absorb too much information, and you may have to deal with a lot of data that is irrelevant. Having to deal with large amounts of irrelevant data could reduce your ability to efficiently recall information. People who have photographic memories may also have a hard time forgetting things that they don’t desire to remember. Humans are not designed to be mere databases which store tremendous amounts of information. Memory is only important when it can be used to recall information that is relevant. Being able to use your memory is much more important than simply being able to store information.

Istilah photographic mind dimulai sekitar 70 tahun lalu ketika seorang ilmuwan Jerman yang sedang meneliti daya ingat melihat beberapa anak kecil (sekitar 4 tahun) mempunyai kemampuan daya ingat luar biasa. Setelah anak-anak ini melihat gambar sangat kompleks atau halaman buku, mereka dapat mereproduksi kembali apa yang dilihatnya dalam pikiran mereka dan menyebutkannya secara tepat. Seakan mereka sedang melihat foto dalam bayangan mental mereka sehingga lahirlah istilah photographic memory (Haber & Haber 1964).

People claimed to possess an eidetic memory

A number of people claim to have eidetic memory, but until 2008, nearly no one had been tested and documented as having a memory that is truly photographic in a literal sense. Regardless, a number of individuals with extraordinary memory that have been labeled by some as eidetikers.
• Sukarno, the father of Indonesian independence and the first president of The Republic of Indonesia, had a photographic memory, which helped him in his languages learning.

• Luke Mason, a British male able to memorize large pieces of texts, such as text books and strings of numbers after reading them once and recalling with perfect accuracy. Luke also has a gift for natural languages and he experiences synaesthesia.

• Hans von Bülow was a 19th century pianist and conductor with what could be described as a perfect musical memory. He could play both Brahms’ and Beethoven’s entire piano works from memory, and conducted the first performance of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde without the score, having never heard it before but studying the score pre-emptively, which was enough for him to memorise a work — he did not need to hear it.

• Stephen Wiltshire, MBE, is a prodigious savant, capable of drawing the entire skyline of a city after a helicopter ride.

• Wynne Kulman, able to memorize textbooks, serial numbers, and other documents after reading them just once.

• Tom Morton, a taxi driver, knew over 16,000 telephone numbers in Lancashire and beat the British Olympia Telephone Exchange computer with his recall while being interviewed by Esther Rantzen and Adrian Mills on the popular BBC magazine programme That’s Life! in 1993.

• Said Nursî, a Turkish Islamic scholar who was able to recite many books from memory. For instance “… So then he [Molla Fethullah] decided to test his memory and handed him a copy of the work by Al-Hariri of Basra (1054-1122) — also famous for his intelligence and power of memory — called Maqamat al-Hariri. Molla Said read one page once, memorized it, then repeated it by heart. Molla Fethullah expressed his amazement.”

• Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart appeared to have a perfect musical memory (whether this is related to eidetic memory remains to be argued). As a young adolescent, he wrote down Allegri’s Misere entirely from memory after hearing it only once, making only minor corrections later. Others such as Ludwig van Beethoven have shown similar capacity, personally premiering a piano concerto and performing without the piano part.

• Business tycoon Charles R. Schwab could remember the names of 8,000 employees.

• Andriy Slyusarchuk, a Ukrainian professor from Lviv,[14] achieved a world record on February 28, 2006 after having memorized 5,100 numbers in two minutes.

• Sergei Rachmaninov, one of Russia’s most famous composers and pianists, is said to have been able to perfectly recall any musical score after sight reading it just twice.

• Desi Arnaz, husband of Lucille Ball and co-star of I Love Lucy was able to memorize his script after reading it through once.
