Power in Periphery

December 16, 2006 - Back to Journal



In a dream, I was playing the piano, using this image as written music. The picture was seated on a music stand on my left. I could easily play the shape of the mountains as long as I viewed the image in peripheral vision, but as soon as I turned my head to look at it directly, I lost my power and it turned back into a picture. Is it possible that in order for synesthesia to take place, one must not be overly focused? And if so, isnít it ironic that one must be in a partial state of unawareness in order to be the most aware?
