                                                    When I was very little , I had the most bizzare thought . I thought about the color blue , and I knew that I could see blue as blue and that other people could see blue as blue. However I was never really sure wether other people saw blue in the same way that I did .
    Any way years later down the track and still puzzled by this bizzare thought , I learned of a condition that causes peoples senses to jumble . So that they actually hear colors and taste shapes . Along with a multitude of other experiences . We have touched briefly on this subject before I know .

   Here's a link to a story on the subject .LinkyDink :0)

                                                  Very good reading, Kismit.  I have read several sci-fi stories about such things, but the settings were either extraterrestrial or extradimensional.  It also reminds me of that movie "MASK" where Rocky teaches a blind girl how to "see" colors and descriptions of intangibles through touch.  He used cotton balls to describe billowy clouds, a hot potato for red, an ice cube for blue, etc.  

I had no idea there were cases where that was actual fact.  I bet Esmerelda Jones kicks butt at Simon! smile.gif

I have heard colours and tasted shapes, and a lot of other crazy stuff while I was hammered at a party once...
