Aphantasia: My Mind’s Eye is Blind, But I Dream in Ideas

Living with a language-based brain in a visual world.

I don’t lack an imagination. It just operates non-visually.

I don’t even dream in pictures.

I have a hard time connecting names with faces.

My creative work is language based.

There’s nothing wrong with my imagination.

Because I can’t visualize, I actually have to do it.

We live in a visual world.
