Hyperphantasia vs Aphantasia - Verbal Descriptions Alter Memories

Hyperphantasia vs Aphantasia - Verbal Descriptions Alter Memories

Academic Papers Are Also Altered

It has been a very normal difficulty throughout history: most people are unable to accurately describe what they see, hear, smell, taste, feel, and remember, as well as being unable to describe what words mean. The evidence is found within all writings of all philosophies, ideologies, and academias. The article Mermaid Effect gives ample examples of people inventing beliefs based upon mass formation psychosis, and then the people claiming that their invented beliefs are valid because other people also believe that the invented beliefs are true: 'peer review'. The article Normal Humans Have Multiple Separate Minds - Separatus Mentes Alogicus gives examples of the how and why normal people are mentally unable to apply logic to their memories.

A recent European academic paper focuses on what is named the "verbal overshadowing effect" (VOE). VOE is described as the effect of when person A [1] sees an unknown person B doing something, and [2] if person A verbally describes what person B looked like, then afterwards [3] the person A's memories will be impaired, and [4] person A will no longer be able to accurately recognize person B. However, the academic paper also speaks of aphantasic individuals' memories tending to not be altered after verbally describing what was seen.

The academic VOE paper is a modern example of what was found within the William James Sidis myth: "I have been researching the veracity of primary sources of various subjects for about twenty-eight years, and never before have I found a topic so satiated with lies, myths, half-truths, exaggerations, and other forms of misinformation as is in the history behind William Sidis. Since 1904, the story of William Sidis has predominately been guided not by evidence and scholarly research, but rather by the emotions of whether biographers liked or disliked Sidis."

All known academic papers about hyperphantasia-aphantasia are similarly "satiated with lies, myths, half-truths, exaggerations, and other forms of misinformation".

The recent academic VOE paper lists approximately 228 references to other academic papers that allegedly support the paper's conclusions (some of the individual references were repeatedly stated), but when the references are read, it is found that none of the references claimed what the VOE paper claimed. The recent VOE academic paper made the absurd claim that individuals of higher education have better memories, which could not possibly be true, but the paper referenced a second paper as proof. Upon reading the second paper, it was found that the second paper was speaking of a different topic that did not state that higher education enabled better memories. The second paper referenced a third paper as evidence, and upon reading the third paper, it was found that the claims within the second paper were also false.

By the time an investigator has researched five levels of references, the conclusion is obvious: all of the papers copy-pasted each other's words, and then inserted VOE-like lies while paraphrasing what had been copy-pasted. There never was any proof nor evidence of any of the claims having been valid: it was all a fabrication.

And that is the norm for all academic papers about phantasia: all of the papers invented "lies, myths, half-truths, exaggerations, and other forms of misinformation". A humored observation is that the papers proved themselves to be false because none of the papers were able to remember what a previous author wrote, which, humorously, opens the VOE to also include a form of 'copy-paste overshadowing effect' (COE), which is precisely what academia teaches students to do.

Fast Sum

Since the time of having written the William Sidis myth article in 2008, I can now say that I have found several topics intensely more "satiated with lies, myths, half-truths, exaggerations, and other forms of misinformation" than the William Sidis history, and all of the topics were written by academicians.

Academicians enjoy claiming that they have superior memories, but no known academician on earth remembers what was taught in elementary school science classes. Science classes teach that trees absorb CO2 and emit oxygen. Of all the hundreds of millions of academicians who believe in global warming and that 'we're all going to die because of too much CO2', why are they not planting trees? Why did Bill Gates allegedly want to inject CO2 into cement as a means of reducing CO2? Where are Gates' trees? Of all of the 'scientific' remedies invented to cure the alleged global warming, why are none of the people growing trees? If the people with 'higher education' were so smart, then where are their trees?

Literally no science believer believes in, nor remembers, science. Literally no known academician of 'higher education' is able to remember what they memorized in science classes. The VOE paper's claims are laughably false.

The academic papers are a continuous stream of lies after lies after lies, all while 'Chinese Whispering' different versions of the same lies. The general public believes that the academic papers are true truth, because very few individuals actually read references and to confirm the "veracity of primary sources" within academic papers.

The article Enlightenment is Merely the Absence of Hallucinations has an excellent example of academia's gross ignorance: "The topic includes four of the most well-known names in the fields of physics, psychology, academia, science, and intelligence, but none of the individuals were able to rationalize how things work. Today, William Sidis is often claimed to have been the world's smartest man, but he wasn't even smart enough to recognize that his statement "corresponding process which is its exact reverse with respect to time" was absurd. Within the physics of Nature (the laws of Nature), nothing can have an "exact reverse", nor so much as have a vague general "reverse". To not know that there can be no reverse, proves that the person does not so much as know how the normal 'forward' process works."

All academic phantasia papers are also based upon an ignorance of even the absolute most simplest of physics.

A quote from Alzheimer's Symptoms, Stages, Memory Loss and Cures says it all: "Of the individuals with Alzheimer's that I have observed, they did not experience the intensity of agony as what their relatives experienced. For family members and friends who care for the person, it can be one of the most stressful and agonizing experiences in life to be in the presence of an Alzheimer's sufferer. The Alzheimer's false memories, loss of memories, false accusations, and mood swings can simply be devastating..." As mentally stressful and damaging it is for a person to attempt to reason with people who have dementia and Alzheimer's, similarly is the effect of attempting to reason with academicians.

The stress of reading demented academic papers is having a negative effect on me, and so, for me, the topic of hyper-aphantasia is now dead, and I will not waste more time investigating the topic. After uploading a few articles already finished, I will not speak of the topic further except perhaps as notes.
