Hearing colors...

Last night on the news they had a feature about a neurological condition in which the brain synapses do not untangle as they should as the child develops prenatally, and thus the person has two senses intertwined. One man think about the days of the week and he sees them in color. Each day has its own color. A woman sees colored shapes flying through the air when she hears music. Each person thinks everyone has this same experience, and at some point in life they discover that the rest of us do not have this going on. Interesting, and thought provoking. How many children are told they are imagining things, and how many people have been thought mentally ill after people discover their differences in perception.
