    People who are blind do dream. The dreams of people who have been blind from a very early age (called “congenital blindness”) tend to be different from those who are blind now but had sight before. Those who are congenitally blind often have dreams that include more instances of sounds. Both groups experience dreams as imaginatively rich as those of sighted people.

    mmm, im pretty sure because its just your thinking so your just picturing it in your brain and your not using your eyes so you cant dream if you dont have a brain but i think dreaming is one of the only things blind people see. :( 

    I was asked once if I had to decide to lose my vision or my hearing which I would choose. This being a question often considered but never posed by most, I actually chose my hearing. (BTW, for a most relevant movie discussing this issue, please see MASK with Sam Elliott and Cher) The mind is a vibrant place and I have no doubt that visual depictions are produced especially in the mind of a blind individual. While they may indeed not be like those of the sighted, they may actually be better.


    We can only hope.

    Most blind people can hear....
