Have you ever asked yourself what the blind man sees? definitely .. not black

The world that surrounded around blind people remains obscure to the person who can see. Even if a person closes his eyes, he will not be close to the world of the blind.

But the question that puzzles us a long time, did the blind see's in his dreams what we can see during sleep and what he sees?

Studies indicate that blind people dream like all human beings. The person who has been blinded since birth dreams like others but he does not see pictures in the dream, but his dreams depend on his other senses such as smell, smell and touch.

Who has lost sight after a period of sight, he can see pictures depending on what he lived during the period of sight. His visual experience in the dream is limited in certain shapes and colors, but as the years pass, the visual effects diminish in his dreams and become vague and indistinct, while the most influences that depend on other senses emerge. Many studies and research on some blind people have proved that they are already dreaming in their dreams, but they can not explain the shapes they dreamed so that in their dreams they can not find a final picture of people and things. People who are deprived of the sight do not remember most of their dreams because they are For images completely free of all visual effects.


And most dreams of people with blind dreams are mostly sound because voice and speech is the only way the blind person deals with all those who live around it and therefore the voice is most often in their dreams. These dreams reflect some of the fantasies that depend on the voice of the person who dreams of Or the thing from which to hear his voice constantly in fact, and this makes the dreams of blind people are free of appearances or images but can be interpreted as mere fancies and landmarks are not clear to people, places, and things as well. The writer and American activist Helen Keller, who was blind and deaf, revealed that her dreams before meeting her teacher were free of any sound, visual or even intellectual effects, and it was a sense of fear and other vague feelings, but her dreams changed after the lessons she received on Her teacher's hand, she even dream of a wolf that thrust his fangs into her belly, Helen believes that this dream came after knowing the story of the red robe.

Danish researchers have tried to reach the reality of the dreams of the blind through an experiment volunteered by 50 adults. 11 of whom were blind since birth, 14 of whom lost sight at a later age and 25 visually impaired.


About 18% of the blind participants reported that they had tasted at least one dream. And 30% reported having smelled at least one scent in dreams.

Despite the difference of sensory nature between the dreams of the blind and the visionary, they do not differ in the dreamer's sense and give the same sense of vision during his dream.

Another study by Dr. William Dumhoff in 1999 that the blind can imagine forms in his dreams, just as the child imagines monsters and heard of the fairy tales in his dreams. Also differs from the concept of ugliness and beauty, the more it is to evaluate The nicer whenever I consider it nicer and vice versa.

Braille inventor

The Braille defilement of Frenchman Louis Braille, who lost sight of a childhood accident at the age of three, was when he tried to imitate his father in his work. When he grabbed the perforator, a sharp tool for making holes, he slipped out of his hand and struck his eye. The wound was inflamed and the inflammation spread and both eyes were soon blinded.

Suddenly Luis found himself need to find a new way to learn. He stayed in his old school for two years but was unable to learn everything by listening only. Things began to improve when Lewis received a scholarship to study at the Royal Institute of Blind Youth in Paris when he was 10 years old. But even at the institute, most of what teachers do is to address students. The Institute's library contained 14 large volumes printed in bold letters and was very difficult to read, and until that moment Lewis's patience was running out. At that institute, a soldier called Charles Barbier visited them in 1821 and introduced them to his invention of 'night writing', a 12-point code that allows soldiers to exchange confidential information on the battlefield without the need to speak. Unfortunately, the code was very difficult for the soldiers.


But it was not the case for 12-year-old Louis. Lewis reduced the number of points to only 6 points and improved the system until he was 15 years old. Then he published the first book in the world in Braille in 1829, then in 1837 added symbols of mathematics and music. As the public remained skeptical of this language, blind students were forced to study these codes themselves.

Even at the Royal Institute, where Lewis worked as a teacher after graduation, Braille was taught only after his death. The language of Braille began to spread in 1886 when a group of British men known to the Royal National Institute of the Blind adopted this case.
