    My sight is always paired with a physical sensation. I feel the movements of other people's limbs or expressions. I feel the movement of leaves, cars and even get a physical sensation looking at a stationary object.

    I'm having a hard time explaining. I physically feel the lamp, I see etc... There is no sight just by itself. It is always paired with touch. I instantly experience how an object would feel to touch just by looking at it.

    For me hearing is just hearing, but sight is never, ever just sight. Can't even imagine what that would be like. Dr. Phil just leaned on TV. I physically felt his leaning. A woman is shaking her head. I physically feel the shaking of her head. A bird is flying. I physically feel the flapping of it's wings. The leaves on a tree are moving. I feel the movement as if I were a leaf. I physically feel the roundness of a piece of furniture I am looking at. I feel the weight of it on the carpet.

    Does anybody understand what I am talking about?
