Hi all!

I'm 33, degree educated, always loved reading and thought I had quite a good imagination until I discovered two days ago that apparently everyone else can SEE THINGS WITH THEIR MIND. It's blown me away.

I used to think all the talk of imagining things, using your minds eye, picturing your mum etc was figurative, a metaphor for thinking really hard about something. Not that people can actually see their imagination, snell freshly cut grass or head people's voices when they imagine things!! I've got a whole new perspective on a lot of things from my childhood now, stupid exercises we had to do at school that never made sense, or why I was always awful at art...

Anyway, it's lovely to discover that not only I'm not alone, but also to find a little community going. I'd love to learn more about aphantasia, so if anyone knows any good resources, or anyone researching this currently, let me know! :)

Matt
