I’m Tom. Founder of the Aphantasia Network.
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.
As one of the first 21 cases of aphantasia ever studied, I’ve heard from thousands who wrestle with these questions. Questions of feeling disconnected, like their memory and relationships, can be difficult to understand, or their true potential undiscovered.
Today, I see aphantasia as my biggest strength, and I believe deeply that the discovery can unleash hidden potential.
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.
