I am so utterly fascinated with how the mind works... and doesn't.

No matter how much empathy you have, I don't think you can ever really appreciate how weird it must be to suffer from a condition like this.

Considering we see faces on toast and rocks and clouds or even electric sockets - I mean basically everywhere - it must be so strange not to recognise people by their faces.
