Take a look at this

When the Alter Rebbe was imprisoned, he was not only interrogated about the accusations lodged against him,he was also asked a number of questions from various fields of knowledge.On one occasion he was shown a new, detailed map of America recently brought to Russia.The Alter Rebbe took a quick look and pointed out a few mistakes in it.After lengthy deliberations, the court geographers agreed with the Rebbe. The prosecutors were astonished at thedepth of knowledge the Rebbe had displayed in a “foreign” to him science.The Rebbe then explained that in the very first letter in the Torah, in the very beginning of the account of Creation, one can discernthe entire created world in minute detail. One simply has to know how to look.
