The Colourful Multiverse of Synesthesia

To start with a new abstract paradigm of design hull is questioning the benevolence of all the desired factors that make it work. Those key crackers that significantly site out with their characters, to mark the new beginning of human cerebrum mutation, that charge the domains of the brain and its symptoms of Synesthesia.

An integral function of experiential vertex of being sensitive or to put it, another mannerism of being humans, if at all. In the manner of the quote, it says, “The dog who saw the rainbow”!!!Because no amphibian with an exception of homo sapiens and apes can identify colours, all they can process in optics is through shades of grey and shadows.

Imagine the multiverse where humans could respond to sonar without the types of equipment of latest technological advancements or could taste or hear any colour in its own significant unique dimension, or even communicate with any mortal being irrespective of their form. The very thought of the phenomenon of this magnitude that defines Synesthesia as perceptual experience in which stimuli presented through one modality will spontaneously evoke sensations in an unrelated modality, amazes most and the research has largely focused on heritable variants comprising roughly 4% of the general population.

This un-spaced dimension of mortal human design capacity has shown its full feathers in all formats, un-jarring itself from one ‘just’ science. These phenomena influenced the ‘affects’ of Einstein and ‘creatives’ of Vincent Van Gogh, welcoming the whole of mankind into the unrelenting turf of Nicola Tesla, the examples are only finite including one more of Kanye West, a result of its lamentable rare occurrence.

Post acknowledging the remarkable work and effort by Francis Galton, for first, realizing and then, recognizing this beautiful mystery of the human ‘mind’ and sensory system, we rehearse the conclusion each day as a ‘creative’ juvenile of mother nature, to just touch the tip of the magnitude and fortuity this phenomenon holds within its un-folds, and stimulate this intramural echo, if whether could we ever be this altruistic “Dog………. who saw……. the Rainbow”?
