Another case of synaesthesia linking scenes and concepts, from Austin in Texas?

Could this be a description of a type of synaesthesia that involves connectons between whatever part of the brain encodes memories of concepts and the part of the brain that stores visual memories of scenes (the fusiform gyrus, I’d say)? This listing of very idiosyncratic associations between places and concepts looks very similar to descriptions that I have written about some of my synaesthesia experiences in reports recently published at this blog.

One thing that I have noticed about this list of concepts is that none of them appear to date back to childhood (unless these concepts are from the mind of a child prodigy). These concepts are generally complex, technical and grown-up.
