Time for a Spiritual Revolution – Russell Brand

The Metaphysical world is something everyone needs to explore according to Russell Brand. There is a lot more going on in this world than our senses can even pick up so who is to say that there are not vibrations or parts of this reality that are beyond our 5 senses? With that same trail of thought, it is reasonable to believe that there are vibrations beyond the scientific instruments that we have created as well.

Science is designed to measure reality by using what we can pick up with our 5 senses and our instruments. But we can only perceive a limited spectrum of sound, light, smells, tastes and vibrations. If we want to expand and evolve beyond ourselves we need to explore the metaphysical and spiritual realms as well.

The Miracle Brain of the Human Camera

Stephen Wiltshire is a 33-year-old autistic man with an extraordinary talent. He is one of less than 100 people in the world who is recognised as an autistic savant. Whereas some savants excel in mathematics or music, Stephen is an accomplished artist, and is capable of producing highly accurate drawings of buildings and cities after seeing them just once. Although Stephen is today a quiet and confident young man, he endured a difficult childhood as family and teachers struggled to cope with his autism – a condition that was, at the time, very poorly understood and rarely diagnosed.

Cityscapes and buildings quickly became Stephen’s artistic focus, possibly because they represent the kind of stability, solidity and repetition that autistic people often crave. In a short space of time, Stephen became internationally renowned for his strikingly detailed and technically accurate drawings, and since his teenage years he has travelled the world sketching famous buildings and cities.
