Because you have no idea what the sense is, your dreams are based more on audio, touch and smell i would assume.

Your dreams are in your imagination, not your eyes.

Yes but I think what he's getting at, is because you wouldn't see, you would never interpret any "normal" visuals. So what their dreams look like?

But still. I have to agree with the.. this thread sucks - sorry :P

If a person can actually see, then turns blind, that person would be able to explain how it feels to dream when blind.

I presume there's no big difference. You maybe feel more shapes and stuff in dreams?

A better question is: If your brain was somehow rewired to include some sort of sixth sense, after experiencing it would you be able to think about that sense/dream about it in the same way you see things, taste things, and hear things in your imagination?
#17
EEG scans of congenitally blind people suggest that they can dream despite never having had visual stimulus, although an EEG scan only measures the active parts of your brain, so even though the visual section of your brain is active, there is still a debate over whether blind people literally see in their dreams, or whether it is simply that the visual section of their brain is active for some other reason.

I remember that. I asked him what he felt and thought when people talked about colours. That guy was awesome.

this

nobody says this from now on, okay?
the question is perfectly legitimate, and within the scientific community, there is not a complete agreement on the answer.
if people want to discuss this, let them, as it is definitely discussion-worthy.

Blind people still dream because it's only the eyes that stop working, since the part of the brain that deals with images isn't damaged it should be fine for the blind dude.

+1, I guess blind people pickup more things, because they can concentrate on that thing alone.

lol @ <SpaceTime>

I agree with the imagination thing though, blind people haveto imagine what stuff might look like based on texture sound and smell and stuff, right?
