There are so called child prodigys in many fields (science,art,spirituality, sport etc). But when do you call a child with exceptional talent a prodigy, and why?

It could be argued that this child,

Mein Gott!

That transition from a small "laughing kid" at 4 into some kind of an Improvisational Master at the keys was kinda creepy--sure seems like something "other" is breaking through...

managed to implement the complex motor skills of proper muscle motion of the fingers needed to play this piano in only 1 or even 2 years. Additionally to that it also managed to "learn"/master this complex instrument in that short moment at a level close to a very good piano teacher. If you notice it misses certain tangents due to its small hands but overall, its handling of the piano leaves little doubt something profound is hiding under the "hood" of this child, viewed by most materialists as a mere "wunderkind".

It could also be argued that what is seen here is a proof of a being with the ability to recall the memory of a previous life time of "piano experience" and apply it here by merely allowing the mindstream from the previous life, keep flowing uninterrupted in the brain of this mortal shell and body of a "child".

Icchantika: here is one very interesting case I just came across.

Very interesting.

WHAT is also interesting is that Carl Sagan, who is for many the symbol of scientific skepticism, and is definitely the HERO of atheists, wrote the following: "At the time of writing there are three claims in the ESP field which, in my opinion, deserve serious study: ... (3) that young children sometimes report the details of a previous life, which upon checking turn out to be accurate and which they could not have known about in any way other than reincarnation. I pick these claims ... as examples of contentions that might be true." -

This is an amazing statement coming from a skeptic such as Sagan.
