While in any situation we may each observe the same things…we never truly perceive the same things. We express ourselves in writing and speech from the starting point of our perceptions.
Our experiences are always shaped by these sensory perceptions. Many people with sensory losses may find that other senses become more acute. As someone who experiences synesthesia, my own perceptions are often further altered by a crossing of differing sensory modalities.
