Re: Synesthesia, anyone?

I dont actually have this, but it makes sense to me.

places and objects must absolutely "feel right" (like I must use certain pens; and I wont go into a café if I don't like how it's decorated or if everyone seems sulky).

Re: Synesthesia, anyone?

I have some synestesia and I love the emotional and psychedelic vision it gives to me.

Re: Synesthesia, anyone?

I've actually experienced this for a long time. And I too didn't think much of it until I came to understand that no one else (around me at least) experienced this phenomenon like I do.

I have, since discovering this, seen how much of an advantage it gives me when it comes to analyzing and breaking down theories, concepts, notions, and even philosophies. It's been mostly intriguing when it comes to the arts.

I visualize the words (regarding cardinal directions, motions, movements etc.) and become so passionate about it. There have been times when I have gotten frustrated trying to explain synesthesia using synesthesia per se to break the concept down.

From what I understand, that second sensory pathway (and the inherent ability to tap into it almost involuntarily from stimulation of the primary sensory pathway) is conceived at a very young age from exposure to those connections. Since humans, at a young age, cannot form concrete thoughts, the thoughts are indefinitely abstract and those abstract thoughts seem to solidify the connection over time. It becomes harder to explain, but the ability is genetic and, like a lot of inherent traits, it's triggered during developmental stages.

I've, since I was very little, associated letters and numbers with colors. The associations have become much more complex now and it's impossible for me to not see the color of a word, phrase, or number (and its combinations).

When my language became more advanced, I started noticing how I was specially seeing time. Almost like the essence of time comes in increments shaped like colored blocks. If I think of ten years ago, it feels far away and its "slot" is, from a two point perspective, smaller than two years ago. Almost like I see time as filed documents in the shape of time frames. Even now it's hard to explain.

Given it's a neurological phenomenon, the research done regarding its conception are still unknown. Usually case studies identify the signs of "synesthetic" symptoms.

But, you know, it's comforting to see that others have wondered the same thing. If anything, synesthesia has been making life more pleasurable to me and made art a coping mechanism because it provides a sense of relief that I find pleasing.

Re: Synesthesia, anyone?

Yes! for me it gives writing a special dimension as the words have taste and wieght and "texture" ( like if you draw with different pencils and types of paper)
I dont have the color thing but that would be amazing.
i see the year as an oval of monthly calendars

Re: Synesthesia, anyone?

I've never experienced the texture aspect of it, but I do realize I have an easier time studying I give the words shapes I'm familiar with rather than typing them out.

Re: Synesthesia, anyone?

all related to music.

hard to explain. I really get into the beat and experience each level of the harmony of the music and dance with the music while I'm playing the guitar. I tend to activate all of my kenesthetic motion and get lost in melody, synthesizing one rythem with another.

music is very emotional to me as well, usually I can attach a piece of music to a visualized element that conveys the emotion.

Vowels Have Colour? Who Knew?

I definitely taste words...that's why I love the taste of foreign languages!

But then I found this article that says "nearly everyone" has colours for vowels?

I had no idea! The things I learn from you guys!

Re: Synesthesia, anyone?

Oddly enough I can experience it when I imagine I have it. I am a musician and visual artist and the 2 often blend into one another. If I close my eyes while I play I can see a curling wave composed of several different colors that correspond to tones I'm playing. Sometimes a birds eye view or worms eye view. Animals and other characters sometimes emerge from out of the colors as colors as well. It is like looking down into a story world. It makes me wish I could do it all of the time.
