Whilst I do not fancy myself a genius, it's not often I come across a subject about which I am totally ignorant. Ignorant with a capital I. Stuck on dumb, as it were but alas that is where my old HS classmate Lin has left me with her topic for this week's LBC post.
Unless you consider a knee-jerk reaction to something an involuntary response to some other sense's stimulation i guess I'm not a synesthete. Synesthesia seems to be another example of the things our minds are capable of and in fact another example of how little we do not know about those minds.
I am quite interested in what Lin has to say on this subject - and why she chose it. She's quite an interesting lady and this fits into that perception. The notion of color/number associations, sound/coor and more. In fact one of my all-time favorite singer/somgwriter/entertainers - Billy Joel - is a synesthete.
So thanks Lin - for coming up with a topic that will keep me busy exploring it!
