This is a bit egocentrical, but here we go.
I want to thank Mr. Hawkins for his insight regarding reference frames.
Through coincidence I learned about the Theory of a thousand brains last week at the same time I learned about the phenomenon of Aphantasia, which I apparently witness in my own mind.
I was always in conflict with myself regarding my huge disinterest concerning new visual input, i.e. going on a trip. Because I just can’t imagine the beach or the mountains in my head afterwards and have never understood the nostalgia of my familymembers and their lostness in nostalgia when talking about the things that they have seen.
At the same time I have to tell you, that I am a gradstudent with a good grasp for mathematics and spatial thinking. The way I understand the world seems to be,as I learned thanks to Mr. Hawkins by pure manipulation of reference frames. When I imagine an object or a movement I only get this feeling of the size and the possible trajectories, no pictures, just pure reference frames. It was a huge insight for my life and brings me alot of inner peace.
