The screen slides


Post three of Lazy Places style. I've been getting some incredible synesthesia lately, but not in the usual way. Instead of flashes of memory with smell, I've been getting computer screen synesthesia. Example: I'd put on this pair of pants from hybrid, and my mind filled with all the other stuff I was doing on my computer screen while I wore them, like the word document I was working on (a book review), my other browsers (my Japanese dress-up dolly), the roleplaying log I was writing in IM. I've never had this before, but this week it's happened twice... I wonder if this is a sign that my life is played out on this screen?

I studied Sakuradawn hard to make this look today. I'm even wearing Sakura hair! I don't normally go in for hair by big-name designers because I figure other people wear it better than I do, but I quite like how "lazy" this Maitreya hair makes me look. I also ganked the very flexible jacket-layer patches from /artilleri's/ Vicky shirt and stuck it on her jacket.

A for Achariya! Hee, okay, A for /artilleri/

That's not quite what synesthesia is. Instead of one sense triggering a related memory or experience(e.g. seeing Hybrid pants, and remembering previously related visuals), synesthesia is the stimulus of one sense is perceived as a sensation of a different sense. E.g. a sound causes a taste, a sight causes a feeling (physical, not emotional).

I'm minorly scent > color and sight > feeling synesthesic--I interpret scent via color, and words and letters have associated feelings. It's a fascinating phenomena, too, but unrelated to the intense memory triggers that you're talking about here.

That length sidetrack aside, this outfit is awesome--but then, when are yours not? ^_^

Ah, I'm sorry, I know what synesthesia is but I expressed myself wrong. When I say that scent triggers a memory, I mean a visual memory. Scent --> Visual, for me, which is why I consider it synesthesia. And this is "different" because I'm getting the experience of seeing pants and remembering a different phenomenon on my screen (which is, as you point out, not quite synesthesia, but I knew that).

Thanks for the comment, I'm happy someone read this :D.

You know, I do not own that hair and now I must own it!
