Some flaws within the original is that their are too many words, so it is very unappealing to read. The new design allows the point to get across with limited about of words.
1. The overall theme of this project is drug-induced synesthesia. The senses that will be addressed are all of them.

6. This project is related to knowledge because through researching this topic, it will greater the knowledge of synesthesia.
7. The material I will need for this project are just a computer.
8. My Psychology teacher, Ms. Babcock, could assist with this project.
9. Some possible ways to present this project is through a video or a powerpoint. Possibly do a little interactive activity.
10. In order to finish this project by the due date I must spread the workload throughout the next two weeks.
4. Elaborate on the quote from Anais Nin: “We see things not as they are but as we are.”
This quote “We see things not as they are but as we are” means that we see the world as we expect to see it. We walk into a classroom hearing that the teacher is mean and we except them to be mean so that’s the emotions we focus on. If we wake up in a bad mood, every slightest bad thing that occurs that day seems to make of us in an even worse mood. People have different meanings of what things are. Everyone has their own view of the world and they see it in their own perspective.
Part II: Street Art- Optical Illusion
Part III: Taste
Part IV: Response to Hilary Lawson’s Story of visual agnosia
Hilary Lawson writes a story about visual agnosia. Visual agnosia is when someone is able to see something but unable to recognize. This seems like a very hard and scary lifestyle. It is seems very sad to go through life never knowing what purpose of things are or even what they are. Visual agnosia seems harder than being blind or deaf because at least with being blind or deaf you are able to connect with other things, but when you suffer from visual agnosia you hold no connection to the world.
Part V: 3 Theories of Reality
The three theories of reality are common sense realism, scientific realism, and phenomenalism. All three of these theories are very different that how I view the world but if I had to chose one that seems to follow my beliefs best I would choose phenomenalism. This theory emphasizes that we see the world form human perspective but there are many other perspectives out there.
Part VI: Belief, Culture, and Mood Affecting Perception
The way we are brought up through culture and religion play a key role how we perceive the world. The more knowledge we know about that culture or religion makes us see the world from the eyes of those views, especially when you strongly believe them. One’s mood also plays a key role. When someone is angry or irritated, every little obstacle that is in there path that might not affect them on a different day will make them more angry or irritated than before. Our perception can be greatly affected by our moods, believes, and cultures.
Part VII: Sixth Sense
This “sixth sense” is a very advanced piece of technology. I belief that it can greatly influence society. It can make the everyday human life more dependent on technology. This piece of technology can also make it more easy to live human life. This new piece of tech can also cause the dropping of rating for other less advanced pieces of technology. It could be the new iPhone.
Part VIII: GESALT LOGO
This is an example of closure. The S of USA does not have any lines truly connecting the S but the S is strongly visible.
Part IX: Blind, Yet Seeing
The photo within my poster citation is below. I chose that picture because it got my message across. The picture appeared kind of scary/creepy that could inspire people to make action and realize that experts make mistakes too.
