Hey Knate, I apologize for adding to the growing list of questions here but you must explain the time to you got punched. Did you see random colors when you got punched? Did the aura of the person change right before the fight?

When you're describing what colour people on the forum are, are you getting it just from their name or a more general feeling, such as how they talk/act and their persona on here?

And then I suppose I have to ask: what colour am I? :p

I go by their name, the way they carry out a conversation, punctuation, avatar, area from where they are, weather and the time of day it is. All those things just come to be at one unless I seperate them on purpose and focus on one individually.

You are a bright orange that fades into a bit of a burnt orange. For instance, when I think of the name Ross alone, it's yellow. That's it, that's all. When I think about YOU, it's bright orange that fades into burnt orange. When I think about another person named Ross that I went to school with, he is a light yellow, like a post-it note.

On a forum, I think I might rely mainly on punctuation. I associate exclamation points with 2 things that are on the complete opposite of the spectrum; smiling and RAGE. The overall attitude from posts before play in a factor. I don't know, in my mind, I can't remember what a person posted word for word unless I think about a particular topic, just like anybody. But I guess it's just in my brain somewhere floating around.

For the record, I don't mind answering questions. I made the thread but didn't think anyone would find it all that interesting. But since people DO, I can't be a dick and just let peoples mind wander.

When I got hit, nothing really went through my mind. I got attacked from behind, blindsided and pushed over. I visualized 4 knuckles on my left cheek bone. When hitting my head, no matter what unless I get knocked unconcious, the same thing pops in my head. I shit you not, it's the an image of a comic book "POW!". It has a blue background, a white bubble with black letters, and a black outline. The onlny problem is the word is distorted and I can't actually read it. That comes from my childhood when me and my brothers friends were throwing me into the couch as a small child. They fucked up, and I hit my head on the corner of a table and was knocked out. At the time, my grandfather was over and he was watching that old Batman show. And that's still all I see and all I remember from being jumped except for the fact that my hand was in the cup of water that I dropped on the concrete.

When my nose was bleeding, the only thing that was going through my mind was as a kid, holding a water hose when I was washing my dog or bike out in my front lawn just before my friend came over on his NASH Skateboard that his mom had bought him for his SISTERS birthday. That reminded me that he was spoiled, which I associated with myself. Associating that with myself, I felt guilt for being out that night, instead of going over to my friends house that had just came to town for a visit. So in turn, I was really just feeling down on myself for all the wrong reasons, and still do. Even though I was jumped, and didn't cause any trouble,

I know right off the bat these guys were trouble when I first saw them and knew something bad was going to happen. They were together, but I didn't really see any kind of aura. I just heard tension in their laughs as they were approaching us. As for when they left, they just fucking split. I haven't seen them since.

Hope these help for the people that are interested but have no idea what the fuck i'm talking about. What is kind of tripping me out is the fact about the person of the last video. Only person in the world? My ass. Atleast 2 people now bitch.

Here is a video I just looked up that can explain Synesthesia better than I can.



Here is a news report.



Here is a thing from that show "Extraordinary People"

One of the most interesting topics here. Well done, Knate! (happy exclamation point). Also, I think I mentioned this before, but I'm colourblind. Does that make me gray to you?

Are you "color blind" like Raccoon? Or full on black and white? And you are Yellow. Bright fucking yellow. But since you're color blind, I don't know what that means to you. Like a lemon. But not in a sour way. Like a lemonade way! But you are Dutch...do you even have lemonade? Shit. Like a Daisy! You're a beautiful yellow Daisy! hahaha.

No, it's different than Raccoon, but not black and white. I only see the difference between light and dark.

The T and I in TIM are shades of yellow. The way you respond and with Wit comes off as yellow. The letter W is a shade of yellow. You are also very tall and are dutch. Everything that sticks out is yellow, so no fading. It's just the way it is.

Soon, I will work on conquering this thing, and learn why I associate the colors and feelings the way I do.

Kinda weird how like 3 or 4 nights ago this hardly came up when me and some friends messed around with this hypnotized deal and I've read just fucking pages and pages on the stuff. I have memories from when I was little like real young, 3 or 4, where things like this were pretty apparent. Now for the life of me I can't say I've ever really had anything like it happen again.

And I'll piggyback on the "What color am I?" question please and thank you

Yeah, it sounds weird to experience... Knate, do you find it weird or strange when you associate colours to numbers and stuff? Or is it so subconscious that it has become normal?

I don't think I've really experienced this... maybe once, I kind of remember traveling somewhere, then all of a sudden associating a smell with it... but that was only once, and I forget where or what the smell was.

Stevie K, when I think of the name Steve, its green. Stevie is is a light green, K is red, but when I put it all together, it forms a more yellow/green.

And Raptor, I remember being like this as long as I can remember. I just kept my mouth shut, never told anyone and kept it a secret until a couple days ago. It's the only way I've ever done things, so in my brain its completely normal.

I tell you what, the way I visualize things, the thought process and everything else associated would probably make a killer 3D movie. You should see the calendar in my head.

I really wish someone here shared this curse/gift.

SO MUCH to tell/explain...so little people that care about it.

Wow, I'm such a drama queen.

I know little to nothing about this but is this not like subconciously picking up a bunch of variables? Like when you "get a bad vibe" from someone they really just have a dominating posture that isn't bold enough that you realise it at the time?

I tend to associate some people with colours or smells without thinking about it but when i do think about it I'd remember things like what colour of t shirt they were wearing when i first met them or something like that. I met someone on the internet the same time my mother was cleaning so everytime i speak to them i strongly remember the smell of surface cleaner.

This thread makes me think of the Men Who Stare at Goats

is it because of Greenman in my avatar?




The office across mine has a smell that reminds me of my first girlfriend's house. I relate smells with people and certain times of my life. Although the part of the brain responsible for our sense of smell—the limbic system—is related to feelings and memory, so it's not anything special in my case.
