Lords walk among us. Two per cent of readers may be surprised to discover that they are members of an elite group with the power to perceive the geography of time.
Sci-fi fans – Anglophile ones, at least – know that the coolest aliens in the universe are Time Lords: time-travelling humanoids with the ability to understand and perceive events throughout time and space. Now it seems that people with a newly described condition have a similar, albeit lesser ability: they experience time as a spatial construct.
Synaesthesia is the condition in which the senses are mixed, so that a sound or a number has a colour, for example. In one version, the sense of touch evokes emotions.
To those variants we can now add time-space synaesthesia.
I see… time

I have always been interested in synaesthesia. The idea that a person can have the ability to see sound as a color, or any other of the fascinating abilities, is borderline approaching ideas from the show Heros.
How about it ATS? Do we have any members with synaesthesia? Does anyone think this may be related to a higher, more fantastical human ability?

Hmmm, I experience very ample synaesthesia whilst going to sleep.
For instance, the sudden crackle in the walls at night will make a bright white flash, other than that I've yet to experience anything to significant.

synaesthesia is quite common on '___' or other powerful hallucinogen. I.e. everybody is capable of synaesthesia but for some reason this ability is suppressed under normal circumstances.
What Time is is unanswered question - probably The basic question of philosophy.

Hey, same here. When going to sleep and there is a noise I will see the sound as a geometric shape. It pretty much looks like when you look through a kaleidescope.
