What do Blind people dream of when they sleep?
« on: January 06, 2014, 10:58:53 AM »
I am just very curious. i mean what do they see and what not? Do they make up images in their mind of what they think the world looks like ( as if they were blind their whole lives) or they just do not have any? Pure curiosity.

I would assume they would dream like we do. Your mind projects images when you're asleep. They probably dream all the same things even though they haven't had the ability to see what we see

Dreaming has to do with your thoughts ,not what you've seen. they could have dreams but use thier imagination to create images

they probably have regular dreams with regular emotions but without the images that we see

This is a great question I will definitely look into it if someone gets to ask someone who is actually blind let me know .

Maybe they live in a world of vibrant colors. And when they dream they imagine the real world. I don't know. But it would be interesting to find out, wouldn't it.

I suppose it would depend on whether they became blind over time or were born that way.

They probably have vivid dreams of all sorts of crazy stuff due to less reference points of how things should or shouldn't look like.
