Never knew


Just learned the term (Aphantasia) {see spellcheck does not even know it}. I always knew I could not picture things in my mind, however, I had no idea that most people could experience or recall their other senses. I, am apparently void of all sensory recall. I do however, have a good memory. This memory is pure thought. I have no idea how it works. I also do not know if other people experience a flood of ideas every time they face a challenge, or new information about a subject. It’s as if every thing I have ever experienced relating in someway to this new thing gets tagged. It gives me possible solutions to challenges. I have studied my whole life, I have a need to know things. One problem I have noticed in other post, plages me. As I experience the thoughts that invade my mind when I consider a challenge, I can be easily distracted. I am happy to find this subject being discussed, I thought I was alone. It would be nice to find that this condition might be helpful to the challenges we all face. Maybe some of us should get together and see if our unique thinking process has advantages.
