Ok, so lets get back to this thread discussion. I was hoping to find like minded people when I joined WoV but nobody seems to connect with me on this subject. I have made a lot of attempts but I think as a teacher there is a point where you have to start asking the class questions about what's preventing comprehension in order to resolve the issue.

Before you can get the right answers, you need to get the right questions.

Wrong question?: Why don't my students connect with me? What's preventing them comprehending me?

Better questions?: Am I a teacher? Are these people my humble students? Why should they give a damn what I'm preaching? Might they not see value in comprehending me?

In town, there's an evangelist that stand on a soapbox sharing his wisdom. He's very passionate. Only he can see the great truths. Everyone else see's some ****** on a soapbox and just walks on by. It's not that they don't understand him.

Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

OK, fair enough. So what I'm teaching isn't something that people should have to understand. In fact I don't know many applications for this type of synesthesia, which is why I choose game design as a career, but I can actually feel the emotional connections to equations or expressions that are used in games where everyone else needs to play the game to experience the emotions behind it. But I think we need to be clear about something, I am not teaching synesthesia because synesthesia is not something that can be taught. I a merely trying to see if anyone else on here has the same form of synesthesia or something similar.

So I've read this thread over and over again. This thread is like the only one of his that nothing that he is saying makes any sense to me. But yet he wants us to explain where the confusion is and I don't even know where to begin.

I haven't seen anyone on the forum talking about experiencing synesthesia related to anything. That's interesting though.

A better thread title would be "Synesthesia from math". Easier for people to figure out even if they don't have personal experience.

So I think the best way to describe it is from my perspective. But your probably right.

What math expressions would you use to describe Stanley's part or Kevin's?
