I wasn't thinking of synaesthesia; certainly not in relation to tinnitus, 
which pretty much appears constant and directionless. But audio does 
gather and disseminate in space; the reverse reverberation work I do is 
based on that.

That would take too long here...

They're all - the senses - and the neural pathways etc. intertwined; I'm 
not sure how one would separate them. I get 'twitches' at times which 
appear to come from within the brain, but was told that they're actually 
from the surface/skin etc. area, which is interesting. Then migraines etc. 
appear localized etc.

I don't think that binary's operable anymore, not a clear divide?
