Flat Earth General / How do you view the calendar?
« on: November 21, 2020, 12:25:53 PM »
I have always viewed it as a rotating object around me, say like a giant rolled up piece of paper and when I think of next summer I see it on my left hand side and next fall is on my right.
Apparently this is a rare way to view the calendar in one's head.

If you are a flat earther, does your view change?

The “normal” form of the condition called synesthesia is weird enough: For people with this condition, sensory information gets mixed in the brain causing them to see sounds, taste colors, or perceive numbers as having particular hues.

But psychologist David Brang is studying a bunch of people with an even odder form of synesthesia: These people can literally “see time.”

Brang’s subjects have time-space synesthesia; because they have extra neural connections between certain regions of the brain, the patients experience time as a spatial construct.

In his research, Brang describes one patient who was able to see the year as a circular ring surrounding her body that rotated clockwise throughout the year. The current month was reportedly inside her chest with the previous month in front of her chest, reports New Scientist.

Describing the condition to New Scientist, Brang said:

“In general, these individuals perceive months of the year in circular shapes, usually just as an image inside their mind’s eye.”
