Writing in my mother-tounge Farsi in order to get an alternative perspective on my thoughts.

 Mirroring my physical senses with the internal equivalents of them.

Exploring eye-sight vs. visualization, 

hearing with the ears vs. hearing imaginative sounds, tasting with my taste-buds vs. imagining a taste like e.g. 

the taste of a lemon and feeling a texture of an object vs. feeling a sensation like loneliness. 

 

Mirroring physical activity vs. thinking/imagination/dreaming.
