    :D I have this strange... thing. Whenever I listen to the song "Helena", I have these very strong images in my head of... OS X. I know, it's odd, but I swear it's true. Anyone have an idea what it might mean? Or am I just stupid or something.

    I'm not a doctor, but I play one on TV... :p

    Seriously, auditory links are second only to olfactory in their ability to connect to the "old brain." It's the ancient survival relationships we needed in order to spread our seed, and although they may not be necessary in the modern world, they sure can be handy (ever smell smoke in the house? Immediate reaction, right?) How a particular association may be formed is not always obvious, but once it's there, it's got a good chance of remaining there for life.

    ...And how does that make you feel?


    I've got a degree for it but don't practice. It's quite bizarre some of the associations we can make sometimes. Rammstein and the original Command & Conquer go hand in hand for me.

    If listening to "Helena" triggers images of OS X, and you don't yet own 10.5, isn't it fairly obvious? Leopard's calling on you to give it a Troy.

    <ba-dum, ching> :D

    What's the difference between psychiatrists and psychologists exactly? Isn't the first one the people that just listen to you complain about how much your life sucks? :rolleyes::D

    Key difference educationally speaking is that a psychiatrist is an M.D.

    It's all about the drugs, really. I don't know about other countries, but psychiatry is a post graduate degree one can do having already attained a medical degree. Psychiatry seems to be more focused on the individual person with respect to the biological and neurological aspects of the brain. A psychologist is more interested in human behaviour as a group and as a trend. Most importantly, a psychiatrist can administer drugs whereas a psychologist cannot. This really may be different in other countries though.

    Have you recently stopped any medication?

    Do your new vitamins lack Lithium?

    Did you listen to the song a lot while exploring OS X or using your computer?

    I have a lot of songs that bring back memories

    When ever I hear the song "Because You Love Me" it brings back an image of driving through the center Simsbury, CT in my mom's SAAB 9000 in like 1993 (I would be 3 years old).

    "Mr. Roboto" by the Styx reminds me of playing the game Glider because I would listen to it while playing.

    "We Go Together" (from greese) for some reason reminds me of going to the Beach in Rhode Island... and I don't know why

    Yeah you're just stupid. ;)
    Well you asked!

    I think your issue is silly but seeking medial advice online is also silly so combined silly cancels out and you're a-ok. I'm not a doctor but online it doesn't matter because people will take my advice anyway so long as I deliver it with a certain level of confidence.

    I get that whenever I listen to Taproot (which isn't very often, admittedly). I used to listen to them years ago whilst playing a game called Well of Souls.
