Do you – or someone you know – suffer from SYNESTHESIA?
That’s the neurological condition where someone experiences one sense at the same time (or in place of) experiencing it in the traditional way.
One of Web Watch’s friends has this condition, and when they hear specific words, they also end up visualizing that word in front of them at the same time. Some people see colors by smell, or can hear what tree bark sounds like by touching it.
Look, we know that the above isn’t the best explanation about what’s going on in some people’s heads, but the point is that some people just are better at visualizing things in a manner that the rest of us could just never understand.
