If you are looking for a good book to read. I recommend this one.
This entire book was written by a man whose stroke plunged him into a 21 day coma. He awakened to find himself fully paralyzed except for one eye and a part of his head. He survived an entire month, enough to publish an entire book.
How did he do this?
He dictated his book one character at a time by blinking his left eyelid while an assistant recited letters.
200,000 blinks tells his entire story. He died 3 days after the book was published due to pneumonia.
People are amazing
There is also a movie about this
yes i read this! i recommend it!
Imagine that when you see a city’s skyline, you taste blackberries.
Perhaps you are completely convinced that Wednesdays are light red. If you have experiences like these, you might have synesthesia.
Synesthesia means joined perception.
It’s when your brain perceives one sense such as hearing at the same time with another sense like sight.
The most common form is confusing letters and objects with colors. Someone might associate a plane with a green color.
Scientists believe that it happens when there’s cross-wiring in the brain, when neurons in one sensory over cross over to another.
SOURCE AND MORE INFORMATION
here are interesting cases people have submitted to me!
fun fact: i have major grapheme-colour synesthesia, mostly with numbers
like 1(but not the word one for some reason) is grass-green (like a prairie green i guess it changes sometimes) 2 is bright yellow, nine and ten are dark greys, and 31 is forest green (i have others but those were the first ones that i recognised when i was little)
as you can imagine, precalc is a trip
I HAVE THIS OMG
I think I have it too
My numbers have personalities and genders god damn I’m weird
I think I have this. I associate numbers with colors. Like 5 is really red, 8 is yellow, 7 is blue, 9 is orange, 4 is green, etc.
i talk a lot of shit for someone who can’t choose rude dialogue options in games because i’m scared of hurting a characters feelings
