this is truly amazing. this is like some club of soul mates that hitherto only existed in my head.yes me too. done it all my life.as a child i was always the main character in my head stories and i beleaved them so much, that i was being them.in school this interfered with concentration of course but when you think about it, i as doing pretty well concidering the kind of tasks i had to fullfill as a character in my stories. i mean, who's got time for multiplications when your busy sailing the seven seas and hunting for treasure.but i also think it's a kind of protection from the ugliness of the world. a coping mechanism.i still do it even now.if things aren't going well i disappear into stories, books,poetry.i make up these utopias.new ways for humans to live together in communities of my design.the other thing i do is what neo pagans term pathworking.which is going into a sort of sacred space in your mind, designed by your mind.you go there by walking /journeying to it slowly, getting away from reality to a calm place where you can think in peace,where it is possible to ask questions and have them answered truthfully,depending on your beliefs, either by god/gods/godesses or your deep godself.many people who try pathworking find it exreemely hard to do.to me it was a piece of cakeand pehaps this is indeed due to being dyscalculic.and i always felt that the answers i got came from myself, but that i could only ascess this information, by going into myself.
