What do blind people see?
« on: June 16, 2018, 01:14:59 PM »
I am wondering, what do blind people see? Is it like all darkness, or one solid color or something? Or noise of some sort?

Found this gentleman a few days ago, found him quite interesting.

With fear and trembling work out your salvation.

Not all blind people have light perception. I'm blind in one eye, and there's absolutely nothing. It's like trying to see out of your ear: there's nothing there.

Were you born with that or was it something that happened later?

If the latter, what was adaptation like?

Providence is a present mystery by which our hope is confirmed and our faith solidified, if we give not into despair or disbelief.

It happened right after I was born, so I don't remember anything different. I have terrible depth perception, though.
