The Man who tasted shapes! Have you ever experienced synesthesias?
I suspect that more than 1 in 40 have experienced this phenomenon, mostly because it's associated with a ppowerful memory of some event. Remembering the event pulls with it other sensory input occurring in the background of the event. If there is a really "good" association to this background, it can actually force a switch places with the actual event and become the memory. For example, an event outside a restaurant has an associated smell. At a lated time, having the experienxce of that smell will cause the event memory to become the smell. To my mind, synesthesia questions what we call reality. That's just my opinion - I could be wrong.
