As some of you may or may not have heard, there are people in the world who have the ability to smell sounds, see smells or even hear colours. The ability is called Synaesthesia – from the Greek “syn” and “aisthesis” meaning with sensation.
…consists of the pairing of two bodily senses by which the perception of a determined stimulus activates a different subjective perception with no external stimulus (in science, the evoker stimulus is called inducer and the additional experience concurrent)
Now why am I bringing this up you may ask, well, this morning I thought “Imagine if people could see a fart, would they be so quick to let one go if they knew there is the chance that a trail of colour could be following them around like a bright rainbow from there ass“. Then I remembered a very interesting documentary about people who saw numbers in colours and people that were in accidents which now see sounds and taste colours.
Even in early days of my eplipesy I used to get strange tastes just before a seizure. So there are many unexpected things that can happen and that the human body can do.
So my thought of the day boils down to a question… Is there anyone out there that can see a fart?
