"Below are two shapes. One of them is called Kiki and the other is called 
Bouba.

(image http://multisenserealism.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/bouba.png)
Almost all respondents when asked say that the jagged one is kiki and the 
rounded one is bouba. This can be observed across cultures. This is an 
innate ability of our brain by which one mode of sensation can cross over 
into another."

Would this kind of universality of human sense-making be likely if the 
connections between words, shapes, and feelings were purely computational?
