Jason Padgett has Acquired Savant Syndrome. 10 years ago he was beaten and kicked in the head by some muggers after his jacket. While recovering in the hospital he became obsessed with mathematical equations. Apparently the damage to his head allows him to view everything he sees as a Math equation! Padgett turns these formulas into intricate diagrams called fractals. Prior to his accident Padgett was a college drop out and had never taken a college level math class before. An example of his work his below.

maybe he can read your handwriting :). But in all honesty this is really cool and that would be really helpful in understanding physics and calculus.

I fear anyone from our physics class may do horrible things to acquire this superpower heading into Electricity and Magnetism.

I personally think imagining everything as an equation would be somewhat irritating at some points. I mean, who really wants to know the constant of making waffles?
