So he mentions something about NLP practitioners, I dug a little deeper on that and arrived at something called Image streaming something that helps you visualize.
Do you see visuals in dreams? I'm bad at visualizing but I can do it a little. My dreams can be vivid though.
It would be interesting to hear what Tom can tell us about this condition. You can ask him questions directly in the Fireside Chat here if you want to: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=9137&start=810
No all of my dreams are not vivid and I would never confuse them with reality. It is like I interpret events or ideas instead of images.
I think of that mental space where things are simulated in your mind's eye as a non-physical VR contiguous to our PMR. So, if your brain structure precludes you from processing it to any significant degree, then your consciousness must likely be almost fully engaged in the PMR and you're probably very grounded to your physical body and have very attuned senses to your physical environment. On the other hand, someone like me who is approximately half processing the PMR and half processing the mental realm of abstractions -- I am living a life very dissociated from my physical body and physical senses.
In MBT theory, aphantasia represents a constraint but also a unique way to live your life and experience it, maybe even a preselected trait before incarnating.
Yes you are right I am very grounded into this physical reality, as it has being my only vivid or "real" experience so far, but it has left me longing for more.
What would that deeper meaning be ?
I guess the deeper meaning to this is that only very recently I began to think there must be a purpose to this, the reason I am so grounded into this reality. I still don't know what or why.
