    But what would they dream of ??? If the've never seen anything. Are their perspectives of what things look like the same as what things actually look like ???

    Maybe not.. but they are stil dreaming.. for example.. A perminator can be dreaming of a Maki while he hasn't seen him yet,

    I can dream of being rich.... but maybe what I dream of isn't what it would really be like to be rich.

    People born blind have no concept of visualization. (I think.)

    Dreams are images. So that's a rough question. Ask a blind person?

    of course they can dream.....dreams are an outlet for psychobabble. Just because you don't see doesn't mean that you don't use your other senses. In fact those other senses are heightened. My guess is that blind people would still dream of interacting with people, or being in certain situations....but it would be more tactile. I've had dreams where i don't see things..just feel them. so i don't see why not.

As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members.

    *** I think that if a person was missing all their senses that
    it would be inetresting how their dreams differed from someone who was only missing one or none.

    Because they have their other senses I believe that they use their other senses to form their dreams as well as how the body reacts to formulating the dream state.

    If a blind girl was to touch my Chest she would dream gentle but hard dreams making her soaked.

    yeah...that would be interesting huh, Mak?

    but then how could we ask, if they had no senses at all, would we even be able to communicate?

    and to tie into another conversation, would it be considered living, to be in such a state?

    rock that made absolutely no sense. Blind people have very good perspectives of images of themselves, so their dreams are similar to everyone else.

    actually their dreams are not similar to everyone else, simply because their dream do not consists of images of any kind; because they were born blind, their subconscience mind can not automatically produce things that the brain itself has not experienced.

    the answer is simply, their dreams consists of smells and touch/feeling things, they do not see anything; i saw a study done on TV and thought it was interesting, and figured what you guys/gals thought of it.

    thats the answer

    I said "similar" and not the "same." What you described is similar to what I dream. I know; I know. I am reaching but what the hell.
