Some interesting side effects of this:
- When I go to a city after researching it for a while, it always feels like a bizarre dream because a drew such a vivid portrait of the city in my head that inevitably doesn't correspond much to reality.
- I'm heavily predisposed towards horizontality and visions for the future. I imagine myself as I grow old. I imagine the city I live in 50 years later. These are vivid images, which can drive me towards making some odd decisions in the present
