      So when I read books I can see what is going on, right now reading books is really boring as I cannot picture anything from the story.

      Also I will be able to design things better if I can imagine them beforehand.

    I did lots of LSD/DMT and went from a 5 to a 3.

    But I also went psychotic from doing it and I'm not schizophrenic because I haven't gone psychotic after 5 years of not touching the stuff again, YMMV.

          Some people can imagine and picture an apple with perfect visual clarity in their mind.
          Other people can only see blackness in their mind, no matter how hard they try.
          The question is if you can only see blackness in your mind, how do you learn to see the apple.

            Oh like that, thank you.

            In this case, the inability to conjure imagery in your head is called "aphantasia", it's not really a medical condition per se, so you don't (can't) "cure" it.

            Though if this more of a developed condition, i.e. you remember being better at visualization, then it's possible that you could improve it through some deliberate measures. Try to read descriptive literature and do more math that requires "visual" thinking, stuff like topology.

            Don't be disheartened if you do end up having aphantasia though, there's plenty of things you can still do despite lacking visualization.

            I also believe it can be fixed, provided that it's just poor visualization ability. Aphantasia and just a below average ability to visualize imagery are different things.

            Drugs will probably move you down the scale though.

            This is insanity. If you can't picture something in your mind then you'd be unable to remember anything. The colour red, the dog you own, your pantry cupboard. There does not exist a human on this planet who can't picture these things. The only reason 5s think they're real is because they're dumbasses who expect to hallucinate an image and don't understand the concept of "mind's eye". Every single person who has ever existed is a 1, it's just low IQ morons who don't understand the concept suggesting otherwise.

            It’s definitely real because I have it. It’s like a computer with the screen turned off, I know what the colour red is but my mind just sees blackness.
            The real giveaway is dreams, I can see images when dreaming and definitely cannot do that when awake.
            Thus it’s 100% real and why we need to find a cure.

            No, you're the moron here. Aphantasists have given extensive descriptions of how it is they remember things, and it's generally that they recall by 'judgement', i.e. if you show them a red color thing and ask them "is this red?" they will be able to answer if this is true, but wouldn't be able to deliberately bring up a picture in their mental imagination of redness. That memory and imagination can be separated by this is an interesting and valuable thing to understand about psychology.

    I still don't understand this. If I look at this picture then close my eyes, I think I can form something like 2.5 immediatly then start filling in details until it's about 1.5. But how is that different than just memory? I don't really "see" it. Am I really a 5?

    You know that the picture is a meme to make people comment right? It's not a science at all.

    Everyone is 1-5 depending on how you describe your own imagination. Everyone imagines things, but it's not literal, not like a picture and not like an empty 5 either, much less the ones in between.

    It's just a meme, the difference never existed. It's made to make people comment either one of the following:
    >i can't believe there are people out there imagining full rendered apples omg!
    >wait, so there are people who can't imagine anything?
    And they are both having the same experience.

    If you actually believe in aphantasia you’ve failed the litmus test

    • 4 weeks ago

      I don't agree completely that it's "not real", but I have seen that there are a lot of people out there that somehow got the idea that it's "normal" to be able to fully see imagined objects, just like they're real, and anything else is "aphantasia". It's really, truly not.

      So I do agree that this is a good litmus test to see how intelligent or aware or “conscious” someone else is.

      I remember words thoughts and feelings. No pictures. That’s enough for most stuff but is terrible for visual memory tests etc.

      It just feels like auto knowledge, I see a person and know who they are but I could never visualise them if they were not there.

      It gets really odd driving, if I want to go somewhere I have not been for a year I just drive there, I will just randomly know to turn when I get to certain places but I have no idea beforehand where I will be going or what it will look like.

      Also I can see vivid images when dreaming which is how I know with certainty this stuff is real and I am a 5 and 1s will exist, I am a 1 when dreaming.

    To the morons out there.
    The way you solve the problem of being an npc is you just have to imagine remembering doing the thing.
    When you imagine the 3D apple, you remember what it is like to handle an apple. You remember what it is like that the apple smells, that when you cut the apple the juice leaks out. That the juice is not exactly like water, but not exactly like honey.
    You imagine all these things from memory, using your memory. If you have no life, you have no memories to use.
    There are such things as bad memories, which can lead to imagining bad things.
    So, morons, there you are. If you want to know how to manipulate a 3D apple in your mind, remember the last time you handled an apple.
    But you have to remember.

    Let's do a test.
    Hold an apple in your hand and look at it.
    Close your eyes while still holding it: try to envisage it while you sense the apple by your hand.
    Open your eyes and compare your imagined apple with the real thing, did you get close?
    Now try to do that without holding it.

    Most of you are not a 5. That is like those autistic people that can draw cities from memory. 4 is probably more than enough. Someone could design a part for a machine in their head on their morning walk or design a house or car in their head. Room for error, but sufficient for most applications in life.
