i was in 6th grade when these blind people came to talk to our class, about their day to day lives and shit..how they can count change by dropping it on the counter or floor. some girl dropped a few coins in the back of the room. bitch straight up called $.57 like a champ. i was impressed.
pooping - i'm interested to hear
^Wow, that's fucking crazy.
I saw a blind person at Disneyland on Sunday and was confused. Most of that park is a visual experience.
How would you describe colors to a blind person?
if they were born blind, you dont.
im super interested in their dreams though. only being able to dream in soundtracks must sounds fuckin amazing.
probably the same way I piss in the middle of the night
I WTB MINDGAME STICKERS, PM ME
An "auditory dream" is a dream with only sounds and no images. Basically, the dreams of someone who's been blind from birth are just like the dreams that you have - just without the pictures.
People's dreams are based on the things they experience in their lives. That is to say that in a way, our dreams are based on our memories. So a person who has never experienced "seeing" will not dream using sight. This is just like how you do not dream with sonar images, as humans can not use sonar. Perhaps animals like bats, if they do dream (I don't know if they do or not) dream in sonar.
As for your last question, the images that we see in our dreams aren't real light - they're signals within our brains that we experience the same way we would experience light. So light is neither stored nor produced. You could say that our minds "play tricks on us" to make us think we're seeing light when it's not really there.

I love kids. They're short, highly emotional people who don't know anything. They rely on their creativity and imagination to get by in the world. A world, I might add, filled with giants. Amazing feat.
