blind peoples dreams and lucid dreaming

You know I bet blind people could wake up in their dreams and just stay awake in their dream world instead of returning to this world... basically like an extended OBE(out of body expericence)...hmmm
Another thing is that I was wondering if you are blind from birth you supposedly only have auditory dreams... but wouldn't you be able to imagine what seeing would be like... I mean you can feel crap and stuff like that to imagine what it looks like...
The other thing related to all blind people that I was wondering is that if blind people could become lucid in their dreams they could tentatively "wake up" in their dreams... just a thought... I have read about one lady that did this with her partner... Any comments?

Re:blind peoples dreams and lucid dreaming



I have taught blind children for 30 years. I have always been intriqued by my blind students dreams. Children of all ages have recounted vivid dreams describing objects and colors. When questioned about the people in their dreams they tell me that they can't describe what someone looks like but they hear them. Intresting!


Re:blind peoples dreams and lucid dreaming



Hello I am totally blind. I had sight for 29 years. When I dream I can see in my dreams but I am presenting myself as a blind person and try to convince everybody that I am blind. I will use a cane but I can see in my dreams. i have not yet to dream an audio dream. Also since I have been blind I can wake myself out of a dream by thinking to myself that it is only a dream and I need to wake up. I have done this when i am having a bad dream. I just start doing off the wall things that do not go with the dream and beforeI know it I am awake. I know that I am awake because I wake up and I can not see a thing. Then i know that I am back in the real world. I say that because I have woke up in a dream and found myself still in a dream . The only thing that I could figure out was that I was dreaming in a dream. Sorry my respond was so long...

HE PAINTS HIS DREAMS!

Artist Jay Lonewolf will unveil his new work, Wall Street Totem, at the Mario Flores Gallery in North Miami on Friday, October 31, 2008, 6 p.m.-11p.m. Lonewolf, who suffers from rod monochromacy, or complete color blindness, recently completed a new series of works which depicts the current U.S. economic crisis. Lonewolf said Wall Street Totem is “a statement about America's current economic crisis and how it has spiraled into the largest financial shock since the Great Depression.” Lonewolf can see only in black and white or grayscale. His new series about the climate on Wall Street explodes in vibrant colors and textures, spawning a 3D effect. The new exhibition opens Friday, October 31, and continues through November.

Blind people are as intelligent as you are, and it is crear that you have not seen a visually impaired before; try getting to know some and you'll see they have the same feelings and sensations as you do. The thing is, some look at blind people as if they were living in a different wrold, it's not so! What changes maybe, is that they imagine things a little different from somebody who can see! Anyway, their intelligence is very sharp!
