I'm just wondering if there's a more specific word to describe an experience. I don't know if it's just a very vivid imagination, or what! I have very vivid sensations of being touched by someone very close to me, who lives a few thousand miles away from me, and who thinks of me often (long distance relationship). I don't know if I'm very sensitive and picking up his daydreams, or if he's strongly projecting them, if it's both of us, or if it's just my imagination running away with me.
I'm a synesthete with very strong physical senses (I *see* music - it's a neurological phenomenon strong in my family), and I'm open to the possibility that there is something more ethereal in nature to these experiences that I have. I can honestly feel another person's body heat, and pick up their scent, and it's extremely life - like to me. It's caught me completely off guard at moments, when I'm working on something and my mind's totally engrossed in it (i.e., I'm not daydreaming or concentrating on this person).
Am I just going through wishful thinking, or could there be something to this? And if there is, what is the correct word for it? I'd love to develop it further... It certainly makes the distance much shorter. :)
