This video is a treat. You owe it to yourself to see this. It will fill you with amazement and maybe even hope for mankind.

This man, Esref Armagan, is a painter. A really excellent painter. He hails from Ankara, Turkey. Medical scientists dote over him. Why would medical scientists, in particular perception and cognition psychologists, clamor over and voraciously study a Turkish dude who paints at every available opportunity? 

Elementary! They, very simply, cannot comprehend what he is able to do, you see. They cannot comprehend what their instruments so faithfully tell them is happening. I love it.

Esref is blind. Yes. Blind. But, not just blind… Mr. Armagan goes well beyond that… in that he doesn’t have any eyes at all! That’s thanks to a rare genetic impropriety.

And yet… he paints fabulous pictures. As one artist to another… they’re really damn good. With great use of light, of shadow, of color… and of perspective. All perfect. Perspective is what gets most folks. Esref says that he sees and plans the picture out completely  before even starting to paint or draw. And the results are… there for you to see.

At the end of this video you’ll watch as he becomes the first man in 600 years to complete a certain task… set up for him by the aforementioned medi-boffins. Just absolutely amazing. And so wonderfully Fortean. Enjoy and wonder!
