Hearing what you see
The BBC reports that scientists have discovered there are folks who can hear images. How cool is that?! Apparently, it has been well-established that there are those who see colors when they hear music or see numbers and letters, but until now only somewhat known that there are those who hear sounds associated with images. The discovery is categorized as a rare form of synaesthesia, the experience of the senses intermingling. The above video is part of a test given to determine if folks have the ability. It's silent for me, but how about for you?
