But then the twenties, thirties etc are also similar clock face like. And if I zoom out, the whole lot 1-100 are on a semi circular path, as is 100-1000. But I know mine are not 2D - 20 is higher than 12, 100 higher than 20. And mine include negative numbers, and there is a space for irrational numbers (eg square root of -1), not that I can see them, just a space for them<br />Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5136131884445465464.post-1939571747787623872022-11-07T23:35:30.907+01:002022-11-07T23:35:30.907+01:00I didn’t realize this was out of the ordinary unti...I didn’t realize this was out of the ordinary until this year, and I’m 56. I got a puzzled look when I asked how somebody saw numbers in their head. <br /><br />I also didn’t know there was a term for it until today. I see whole numbers climbing up like steps, angling a bit for each group of ten. I see years and decades, starting this year going down to the left and then turning to the left a little bit more to the left each decade then right and down at about 1970.

I always thought everyone sees numbers that way, because its so similar to a clock.

Note the turns at each new lesson. I remember these lessons and how I responded to them. I was excited to learn and one to ten was wonderful! But the next day at school, I learned there were more! My 1-10 extended straight up and away from me, so I just continued the 11-20 on up. But! The next day! Even more! 21-100! I had to make a sharp right turn, as there were just sooo many numbers! So 21-100 went right. As you might imagine, there were more to learn. At 100, I made another right turn up to 1000. At that point, the numbers became more nebulous and I allowed them to continue on into infinity. I have many of these spacial forms, but number and letter are the only ones I remember forming in my mind at an early age.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
