I visualize time and numbers. It's hard to draw pictures of it because the timelines are sometimes 3-dimensional and they are twisted in a way that seems impossible in reality. But I tried. I think this is why I sometimes get confused with math and numbers because I don't access them directly, I alway visualize first. It's a repetitive pattern. Kind of like fractals or something like that.
Do you visualize time and numbers? Is it type related? I know some intuitives don't visualize numbers at all, they just associate them with their mathematical properties.
EDIT: This is nothing I have chosen to do. I've done it automatically since early childhood
Numbers 1-20 (Numers 1-10 looks like a clock pattern. It bends somewhere at 13):
Zooming out even more (here the clock pattern is seen again):
Still zooming out:
Now zooming back to 0-10. Negative numbers continue "behind" the "clock". The line bends. The thicker part is closer to us. The negative numbers making somthing like a mirror image of the positive numbers.
Time and history:
Contemporary history. At a distance each decade bends like a clock pattern. The thicker part is closer to us.
Now zooming out, and rotating to look back in time from today. There's a huge perspective, as we move from 1900 back in history the spatial distance increases a lot. 1300 is far away in the mist. This is like sitting on top of a mountain and looking down in a valley.
So I'm sitting on a clock at number 10 (2010) and from this angle looking back at the years down to 2000 and then seeing the decades 2000-1900 and then from a greater distance seeing the centuries (the decades beyond 1900 are too small to be seen from 2010.)
