    Agent black girl 666, come in Agent Black Girl 666. Your cover has been blown! Beyoncé must go into hiding. You must fake your death, just like Elvis, and spend the rest of your life with the gray aliens at Area 51. Over!

    Related to aphantasia, I heard recently that dyslexia might be tied to a similar problem, where people with it lack an internal monologue. This is most notable when reading, where those without it can read in their head, but those with dyslexia often find themselves having to mouth the words as they read, since they lack that internal voice.

    And all of this makes me wonder. I know I’m on the autistic spectrum, which means my mind functions different than those off of it. Does this mean that there might be some aspect of thought which others take for granted that I’m missing out on? Is there something I take for granted that others are missing out on?
