So a child who is born blind doesn't know they are blind until someone tells them they are. Even then they only have a slight idea what blindness is. I wonder if there could be a way to better explain the concept to a child who was blind since birth? Hmm. That's a lot of thinking. At least i wasn't blind from birth so that makes things easier. I thinkā€¦ You know what? That's enough thinking for today. But maybe there could be a way to explain vision to a blind child. I'll think more on that.

Yikes! That's way too much thinking this early in the morning!! Now I can't stop thinking about that. How CAN you explain a sense to someone who's never had it?
And people blind from birth must not have any concept of what "color" is. Never mind the individual colors. Just the idea of color in general!

Exactly. I mean, at least i had the sense for a while, so i have clear concepts of colors and the such. I agree. Way too much thinking for the morning.
