Lili's second thought for the day

I'm noticing many interesting apparent similarities between the British mnemonist Tom Morton and Jill Price, Solomon Shereshevskii and Daniel Tammet. I'm not the first to note parallels between some of these interesting individuals who have demonstrated superior memory. Memory researchers Wilding and Valentine noted in 1997 "striking" similarities between experiences reported to them by the British synaesthete mnemonist TM (who is apparently the British mnemonist Tom Morton) and the account of "S" (Russian synaesthete mnemonist Solomon Shereshevskii) written by A. Luria.]
