Wow, there's some deep thought being going on here! Respect to those who have shared their 'inner world'. I've never really got that deep into it, but I don't have an internal 'voice', and I totally think in pictures: When I meet someone for the second time, I always remember their face, but rarely their name. When someone asks me to spell something, I see 'scrabble' tiles shuffling around. I work in IT, and visualise software constructs as physical things, like boxes with plugs and sockets hanging out of them, or those shape-balls that kids have with the different shape holes in them. I have never been clinically depressed, as far as I know. Been p!ssed off about stuff, and occasionally miserable some days, but that's not the same thing. I tend to be generally positive in outlook, and always try to see the best in situations and people (that last bit is getting to be a struggle, in recent times...) I rarely remember my dreams. My wife is convinced that I probably fit on 'some spectrum or other' - partly in jest. Am I weird? Not to myself anyway...life kinda works OK.
