I mean that I see images that my mind conjures up, but I would imagine that, for someone with aphantasia, all they see is black. I am curious about whether or not that’s true.

What do you see when you close your eyes?

Edit: This is a bit vague; what I meant has to do with visual memory. My brain tends to show imprints of visual memories/images that are associated with what I’m thinking of or what I’m feeling at that moment. Since I’m not really sure whether this is what a photographic memory is like or whether it’s more of a regularity, and since I haven’t actually thought about this entire process this deeply before, I was wondering whether or not someone with aphantasia has this, or to what extent. Like, do you have visual memories that your mind conjures up when you remember them?
