"We analyse the subjective reports of four synaesthetes who experience colours in response to human faces and figures. These reports are compared with descriptions of alleged auric phenomena found in the literature and with claims made by experts in esoteric spheres. The discrepancies found suggest that both phenomena are phenomenologically and behaviourally dissimilar."
4 synaesthetes? Compared with descriptions found in literature? Really?
Oh... wait. Look at that last sentence. They seem dissimilar? That's the complete opposite to the news!
