The Athanasius Kircher Society, a society inspired by the wondrous, the curious, the singular, the esoteric, and the sometimes hazy frontier between the plausible and the implausible, held its inaugural meeting on January 17, 2007. For those of us who missed it, however, highlights and full clips of each presentation are now available.
Among the featured guests was Kim Peek and his father Fran. Kim Peek was the savant who inspired the movie Rain Man. Kim and Fran discuss the nature and history of Kim's savantism, and then Kim proceeds to masterfully answer trivia questions posed by the audience!
