Do you have a problem in life? No? Then why worry?
For me this questionnaire worked very well, except for situations caused by the irrational fear. To be more precise, for one particular nightmare that I had for as long as I can remember myself. The image in that dream was connected to the sensation, more than I would normally expect.
This F.E.A.R. existed until I discovered the term #synesthesia . Synesthesia is a condition in which one sense (for example, hearing) is simultaneously perceived as if by one or more additional senses such as sight. As adults, our five main senses – hearing, sight, touch, taste and smell – are processed by the brain independently, but at birth they are interlinked. As the brain develops, a gene comes into play that cuts all the extra connections. In some cases, though, this pruning isn’t complete and some extra neural connections remain in place.
Ta-da! Fear is gone, life is beautiful ✨
Moreover, now that I understand it, I find this condition very appealing. It adds some secret charm to everyday life, known only to me (I’s not a schizophrenia tho!😁). So yeah, next time I tell you that your perfume smells like a taste of a watermelon don’t be surprised 😜 - 10 minutes ago
