    that sounds very cool. i communicate in pictures a lot, i love to use drawings in conversations, or to explain things.

    i think only in words, that comes naturally. but then i have trouble communicating verbally. sometimes when i am speaking in an overly simplistic way or struggling to explain my thoughts, my wife will say: "use your words". haha.

    My thoughts are usually words addressed to a faceless, disembodied audience. Mixed in with these words are only the briefest flashes of imagery unless I'm thinking on a higher level for which images are more concise than words. There is also something of a more tactile nature that is always present in my thoughts. It's difficult to describe, but it feels like a radio dial moving through an endless spectrum of channels and picking up all sorts of random things as it goes along. Sometimes I can feel myself nearing a particularly interesting channel, and it starts to feel less like tuning into wavelengths and more like reaching out for a silhouette that solidifies the moment I grasp it.

    I think with images while my voice is narrarating the whole thought
    A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes,
    I screamed aloud, as it tore through them,
    and now it's left me blind...

    I think with feelings that are evoked by certain images. They're not clear images flowing through my mind, mostly multidimensional and hazy, but they do pop up, usually simultaneously and I "feel" the thoughts coming together. It's like a multidimensional jigsaw puzzle of feelings that click.

    I find that words are too limited. I can utter a word in my mind to descibe some things but there's always an enormous extra level or levels of layers behind that word and that is what I mostly feel.

    I think in streams. I see moving streams of colours and a flow which finds its way through that maze, being my thoughts. And at some point, like in a labyrinth, there's this click or even explosion, and a wall will move, in this case, a stream will either go a different direction, or will split up, or come fuse together with another stream, giving it a new colour, and things will click into place. In the end, in theory when you finish that particular thought, you end up with a collage of emotions and colours which has a logical puzzle feel to it. And it will flow into each other, be harmonious. Kinda like an intense piece of art.

    Haha, I love that show.

    Though I hate JD. I prefer the episodes where the other characters get a turn to narrate, like Kelso. God I love Kelso. BAHAHA. NOW I CAN'T STOP THINKING ABOUT SCRUBS!
