I must be synesthetic. I’ve been told that since I was a teenager. I’d describe something and someone would say “Oh, do you have synesthesia?” and I’d say “I don’t know. But when I eat, I hear different music playing in my head depending on the texture and taste of food” Or when I hear sounds or music, I get complicated visuals of the sounds in my head. Yet, I don’t see numbers floating in front of me or any of the regular types of things. But I figure I must be wired oddly in at least _some_ ways from being premature; born early, the white matter connections “blossom” very quickly making lots of little cross connections, sometimes in areas they shouldn’t. So who knows. I know my inner world is far far richer and more vivid than the outer world. I’m always translating the outer to the inner and analyzing it.
