It's not like he suddenly learned a lot of math. But his perception was opened, and he can now see an aspect of reality that was ignored before. This appreciation of geometry is not "advanced", but rather a simple skill that most of us have forgotten or just buried down with countless mundane mental noises... Geometry exists by itself, it's the form of nature; and math is the most precise language in which nature can be described. If we could _see_ nature, math would come out instinctively. If we could reconnect just a bit with our nature, we could open our eyes for real and perceive such things.

That doesn't answer the question of how he did he *immediately* acquire advanced skills in an area where never had any experience? It's like people who suffer brain trauma and become able to play advanced piano pieces having never had a lesson in their life.

It's why I'm good at photography and drawing. I always thought it was normal. :/ I see math and physics equations for almost everything.
