How does one calculate moves while playing chess? How is it that other players can move and rearrange pieces in their heads and someone with aphantasia can still win a game of chess? Also, how does one make strategic moves regarding their future?
What risks may come with telling someone you have aphantasia? There have been many unethical science experiments in the past and there are all sorts of bad people in the world. What if someone found out you had aphantasia and decided to experiment on you by causing you to feel as much emotional pain and trauma as possible? Hypothetically speaking, couldn’t this happen to at least one individual who is secluded from the rest of society in a remote location? I don’t mean to be so negative but since there aren’t many research articles on aphantasia, what is stopping someone from doing their own research experiments on subjects? I’ve heard of people having cameras installed in their heads and having torturous images uploaded to them. The brain processes this as threatening and it can be severely traumatizing. In order to test the psychological limits of someone with aphantasia, someone uploads the images and then observes their behavior to tell if and how long they are being tortured by the images in their heads.
What goes through your mind when listening to a story told by a hip hop artist such as Slick Rick or Nas?
What explains it when one has always had aphantasia and then gets schizophrenia and then voices in your head accuse you of doing something wrong in the past and then an image appears in your head of what you supposedly did almost like being in an interrogation room?
Sometimes I experience deja vu. Does any other aphantasiac experience deja vu and if so, how often does it occur?
What are the best careers for aphantasiacs? I sometimes worry about being fired from a future job because of poor performance and bad memory. Does anyone else share these same thoughts?
