When I say its astonishing, i don't mean because these people have abilities that are lesser than others. I mean it because we so rarely get to see human creativity that is utterly unconfined by societal rules and expectations. What happens at Shobu Gakuen, and at facilities around the globe that are like it, is a lesson to all of us that the human spirit is undimmable. Even with serious restrictions on us, our desire, our baseline need to create, and our inborn ability to do so, if given any chance at all, is capable of wonders.
Just take a look at what I mean.
