Shapes and colors can be interpreted differently, even in that picture you linked you can make a whole sentence or book even to tell or message
something else merely by color coding it. Even a whole another tale all you would have to do is arrange the color coded words to spell something
else. Reading it all over the place instead of left to right, you can have the red ones go up to down, and the blue ones right to left, and another
color down to up, etc etc. So lets say all synesthesia people see each certain letters as a different color or each word as a color or some such, to
form a new language or a written language they would not even have to make anything new. All they would have to do is merely rearrange some things
around and structure sentences a bit differently and more orderly and in line, to take into account all of that.
So technically even visually if you have synesthesia you can read and write and communicate in a more wider and broad fashion. A form of packing and
communicating through more in a simple sentence then the average person would be able to not only see, but to grasp because they would have not
those pathways in there mind and there brain would not be able to process it. Its something in practice that can be done and all that would have to
change is the structure of how you write and the word placement, but even for that the brain would have to multitask a bit more and get used to
thinking all across the board instead of begining to end, ie left to right.
And if you want to add sound into it or covert it to music, from what I heard some people can even interpret certain sounds as colors as well, its
merely the brain multitasking and computing things in a bit different way. Well you should technically be able to covert it to sound and if you were
able to actually see sound like I heard that some of them do, you can actually communicate through sound and actually see it, at the very least simple
concepts would be able to be communicated through to another in that fashion, you could at least technically spell with sound if you were able to see
different sounds as different colors. And like everything else if it becomes more widespread that would grow and expand and evolve to do much more
and communicate much more, a sort of evolution in ocular to sound to brain and mind interpretations using the senses and world around you to convey
meanings and even words across, even using sound. However sound still is a property of planetary bodies, so don't know about how that would work in
If you look at written history, the fact is that we have been communicating with words is in fact that we have not done it for any long stretches of
time. If you were to go back even a few hundred years ago most people would of been illiterate, and in the dark ages and beyond written word was
looked on and allocated as magic. Today however it is merely normal as its more widespread and even in that is constantly changing and expanded on.
Things merely adapt and change and become more streamlined, synthesia can just be another form of packing more information into what already exists
to convey much more with what already is there. Now if everybody saw certain words or certain sounds or certain concept like Monday and January in
certain colors you technically could make a whole new language and way to communicate off of those crosswiring's in the brain.
