👋 Hey everyone, I’m Tom!
I’ve journeyed to understand what it means to be a non-visualizer for much longer than there has been a word to describe it.
In my early twenties, I was made aware of this seemingly super-power ability my family and peers had to relive their past experiences in their mind’s eye, solve problems with pictures, and imagine what their future might look like in a real, tangible way.
As a young non-visualizer, I was left feeling like an outsider. Like something was wrong with me and that life was tremendously unfair. What a fantastic advantage it seemed to be for them, and a crippling disadvantage for me.
Today, I see aphantasia as my biggest strength, and I believe deeply that the discovery can unleash hidden potential.
As one of the first 21 cases of aphantasia ever studied, I’ve heard from thousands who wrestle with these questions. So I built the Aphantasia Network to connect us.
Our mission is simple: Unleash the power of image-free thinking.
Through in-depth conversations, a supportive community, and access to leading thinkers, we can discover the advantages of the image-free mind.
Whether you’re a full-aphant or a super-visualizer, I’m glad you’re here. Together we can unleash the power of image-free thinking.
