Depends on what you mean by special. In that sense no but compared to the others, I would say yes. They have achieved special permissions.

No one is special because everyone obeys the laws of mathematics/physics/nature

I would say the siddhis are special people only.

Yes, but what is special, then?

They are about things that I do not wish the entire internet to see.

Special is the wrong word. Let's just say those are common abilities.

Which people are special then?

Why did you have to delete those comm?ents?

Computation is a very important part of math. A point I have been trying to make since I got here. It represents a new way of thinking about things.

Mere computation won't take mathematics farther.

That is the end result of what I have been saying. Nothing could be further from the truth.

But it is only the tip of the iceberg when we talk about the hidden capabilities of a human being.

Who are special then?

Those people are power greedy ones. What can happen to them if people compute faster?

Just because someone is able to compute very fast, that does not mean that he is very wise. Mere computation won't take mathematics farther.

The same that we discussed in the PM, among others.

Why should they try to hide it? Who are they, by the way?

Do we really need that ability?

How were such guys found/developed?

Yes, but it is a mistake. Shanks did the calculation in 1873 and Dase was dead by 1861 so he must have used someone else that was similar. Also, it took Dase 8 hours to multiply two 100 digit numbers.
