    Long ago I had to wait for Monday to deal with an abscessed tooth. A fistful of mushrooms changed my view of reality forever. The pain was no less over-powering, but it didn't hurt anymore. I just rode the waves.

    That's a nice short intro to the subject. He mentions that sometimes people with synethesia don't know they experience the world different from the norm. He also says about 4% of people have some sort of synethesia.

    Imagine how often someone was thought to be nuts when they casually mention, for example, that they recognize pi because it is greenish. Or like my comment that pain doesn't have to hurt.
