Synesthesia is a blending of senses. For example, people with synesthesia may report music having colors and shapes, and textures having smells and taste. There is a lot of anecdotal evidence for a connection between out of body experiences and synesthesia. Maureen Seaberg, author of "Tasting the Universe: People Who See Colors in Words and Rainbows in Symphonies," explores this fascinating topic.
