Talented Granny With Perfect Pitch Memory

Even after 100 years, this Granny can still play over a thousand pieces — from Mozart to Beethoven flawlessly.

The video attributes her success to an essential oil.

I highly doubt that essential oils had anything to do with it.

My educated guess would attribute her success to the hyperfocus that is often part of ADHD (you might be surprised at how many talented people, especially computer programmers and other technology nerds, owe their success to ADHD hyperfocus) added to her innate gift of perfect pitch and her obvious innate talent for the piano.

We don’t need quackery to explain this. Science can do it quite nicely. And it’s a testament to the importance of neurodiversity.
