Certain skills that some people are born with does always amaze people, whether it be music, sports, or scientific skills etc.Some like to think that some skills are via DNA-heritage and that the world didn't have "wizards" like Mozart before the piano was invented, and we didn't have great mathematicians before we even established mathematics. But many might argue that the world was full of undiscovered talents of areas that wasn't even thought of when they were alive, and they just didn't found their place in life because they were ahead of, or in the "wrong", time. Like an amazing pilot born 600 B.C, with a skill he couldn't put to use, and didn't even know he had. But besides the "practical skills", like footballers, pilots, painters, musicians, I think about men like Nikola Tesla who actually seemed to elaborately and intricately know electricity like no other person ever before. He "saw" electricity, in a way like almost no one before or since. Or those others who were ahead of their time, like Leonardo Da Vinci, who would have excelled in almost anything these days with the proper means. So, is it pure chance that these people are born in an era where their skills can blossom, so to speak, or is it just that there has lived thousands of violinists, mathematicians, Formula-1 drivers, pilots, sculptures, architects, football players (soccer), chemists, etc, before they even know they had that skill - and had the means to use their skill? What makes me think of this are the savants that can sit down by a piano and start playing these incredible pieces like they never done anything else in their life. Or those who start paint like they were full blown artists. Do we have loads of people living now that are masters of skill-sets for an area of expertise not yet invented, or discovered? Or does it come from somewhere else - pouring forth in just the right time? Or are they just born in the "wrong" time, like Leo?
