if you were born blind and have never seen a color or anything how do you dream?what do you dream about if you have never seen anything before?do you just about hearing stuff and touching stuff,I really would like to know
Yes, blind people do have dreams. However, those blind since birth or very early childhood have no visual imagery in their dreams. Instead, they experience a very high percentage of taste, smell, and touch sensations in their dreams.
The breakdown is as follows:
There are no visual images in the dreams of those born without any ability to experience visual imagery in waking life.
Individuals who become blind before the age of five seldom experience visual imagery in their dreams.
Those who become sightless between the ages of five and seven may or may not retain some visual imagery.
Most people who lost their vision after age seven continue to experience at least some visual imagery, although its frequency and clarity often fade with time.
Since blind people use their remaining skills more often, they use them more while dreaming as well. However, your mind can manipulate things so they have somewhat of a picture with them. When a blind person touches something, they have a mental picture of what their brain is telling them it looks like. Usually blind people dream with very little imagery.
I have a friend that was never able to walk, I asked him if he ever had a dream where he could feel the weight on his feet and he said no. The only time he had a dream that was similar to walking was more like levitation but never actually experianced it. Good question though, kind of got me wondering
Uhmmm I'm not to sure but I think since they don't actually have any perception what so ever of how things look, they dream with sounds and emotions.
And even if they're blind I'm pretty sure that they still have an imagination...
fantastic question ,
