has given me a strong introspective notion of the “inner computing mechanisms” going on as it relates to my systems as a whole.

Discussions of this nature are especially interesting to me for personal reasons.

I was born premature. No useful vision in right eye, very poor vision in left eye. Left ear is “tin ear”, right ear only goes up to 5000 hz. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy early on.

Yet, you’d never know it. I have perfect pitch and can ‘hear” octaves far higher than my ears have EVER been capable of hearing. [hearing test at 4 yrs old caps my hearing at 5000 hz, as has every test since then, and I’m 43 year old now).

Glasses correct my vision to be good enough and I see in cyclops vision instead of overlapping images. [they’re side-by-side making an entire field of vision].

So, I judge nearness by size comparison rather than some special kind of “popping out” special effect, which I’ve never had.

So the nature of processing within my own self has been fascinating from the time I was young. It’s also what gave me a great affinity to computers early on; I could relate to parts going bad as I had some that were different than other people’s. Yet, I never felt handicapped or incapable. nor is it noticeable. I credit early physical/occupational therapy between the ages of 3-5 years old, allowing me to enter regular school and obviously, I must have a ‘mild case’ – if I indeed have it at all [no way to know without a brain scan]; but if nothing else, the “input” issue… as well as output issue (corrected stutter when I was 8 – I’m FULLY CONSCIOUS of every part of every word when I speak to avoid going “um” or stuttering)… has given me a strong introspective notion of the “inner computing mechanisms” going on as it relates to my systems as a whole.
