Synesthesia

Synesthesia (also spelled synæsthesia or synaesthesia, plural synesthesiae or synaesthesiae)—from the Ancient Greek σύν (syn), "together," and αἴσθησις (aisthēsis), "sensation"—is a neurologically based phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. [1][2][3][4] People who report such experiences are known as synesthetes.

Hi Wagga!

Hi Kitty!

I just watched this video and feel sick to my stomach.

I love this photo...

Uhmmm.. should I look at the video?... maybe I'll peek...

Kitty said...

Can't see the video... site down?

Akira said...

Hi Kitty,
Yes, that is a pretty photo.
The YouTube video at the bottom of the Tokyo Times post looks like it's working now. However, I'm not sure if you really want to watch a bunch of healthy dogs and puppies being gassed to death...

Video was just plain nasty. We do it here too, of course.

I was in touch with Shreve (http://www.dailycoyote.net/) this morning - what a contrast her farmily makes!. All animals are named & cherished for life.
