Great article Thomas.

This says it all, in a conceptual way. I have strengths in perception and creativity that I always thought were inherent...now I wonder, are these strengths actually a result of re-wiring (read: compensation) for the aphantasia. Hmmm

Almost every article I read about Aphantasia contains a strange claim or assumption by the author or commenters. But no self-awareness? That is really off the deep end and a bit scary, actually. It sounds like we are the subjects of speculation in an animal study.

We are really in the Wild West era of Aphantasia awareness.

I guess the one insight we can gain from the self-awareness comment is how closely visualizers connect their ability to visualize to their sense of self.

reading all the posts by the one who posted, it seems to me that the fellow has aphantasia himself, but that he sees the experience of aphantasia as normal awareness and minds eye...and that he sees the minds eye as we see it with folks actually visualizing int heir heads as halucination...?

this is just what I think reading all the posts...:/
I don't know...what do YOU think?

Well said! I am gaining empathy for people with genuine disabilities by the minute. So I am not self aware? And not creative? This is laugh-aloud ridiculous but also, as you say, scary.
