When thinking about parts or components catalog utilized in design, I 'visit' a specific location (on the grass, but near the curb) close to the Math building at Purdue University.

ERP systems or database architecture = Golf Course I played as teenager - specifically, the 18th green, facing the fence bounding the property.

I associate concepts with specific locations.

For example - when thinking about RAID storage on servers, in my mind, I 'visit' an empty corner lot in an industrial area of Elgin IL.

Is the ‘trick’ learning where we are ‘on the spectrum’, or, learning which spectrum(s) we are on?

A formal definition of ideasthesia from Wikipedia: a neuropsychological phenomenon in which activations of concepts (inducers) evoke perception-like sensory experiences (concurrents).

People are messy.

Anyway, I do that.

This does not seem to be a case of 'where were you when such-and-such happened'. The locations don't need to have been frequented by me and the association may be formed years after my leaving an area. I have not identified a common rule for the associations.
