Confession or a Visualizer.

very susccessfssl mseetinsg last evessisn
as wsas esiest sy lbothsthse large andi
appreciative audience ansd also thse
deeply interesting and highsyy us-
structive paper wicshl sas lpresentedl
by Br. Scott.
'The speaker first explainedl what
a visualizer is. He is onse whose
power of imagery and mensory is
gained from adefinite mental picture.
For example betis one whlo in renmem-
berinsg a breakfast coons could count
the numnbler of chairs, tell thse color
of the wall paper, etc., all froms
lookinsg at Isis msental picture.
Prof. Galton hsas made maisy ini-
teresting discoveries is thsis field.
Mtany scientific msen are sot good
vissializers. Tlhey get the nunmher
sif chairs in the breakfast roonm frons

rallier than froni the actual sight of
thens in the mental picture.
Amoisgediffereist young pseole ini
society visualizers are comsmon. 'Tie
"msind's eye" is after all truly an
analogue of the real orgain of sight.
Visualizers generally have good
memory for faces. A certaisn artist
could, is his imuagination, see liii
subject us a cisair and tisus palint
him as if lie were actually piresent.
Poor visualizers see as if lby a siort
of psanoramsa or by a misty outline.
'T'he coisfessioiss of ''the visualizer''
wvere extremsely entertaissing. In
childhood lie sad msental pictures of
angels and denious; lhe coisls see
pictures iii the fire. lHe oince lost
Isis unmbrelia and pictured it as stand-
ing in room 21, but whieis le went
to get it, it was gone. The edisap-
pearance was due to the system of
ethics taught in room 21.
The visualizer can see all around
the outside and inside of a rubber
ball. The visual object is subser-
vient to the will of the visualizer.

'Ihe phsysiolougical aspsect of the

in this gray field a secondary insage
is psresensted by one's closing his
eyes after looking, at souse object.
The physical sight is forming swhat
is called a piositive insage.
Mteyer wvas the discoverer of the
secondary or obijective image. 'l'ie

seconsdary insages conic bietter by

After lookinsg again at thse esshsions
