i am just curious to know if there's a possibility for people who are blind since birth to see everything in their dreams. people who are not blind since birth and just got it through an accident or a disease can still use their imagination. therefore,they an still see clearly in their dreams. but how about those who are blind since birth?

mental reasoning will never be blind, even if genetically inherited, or in the womb. they have similar eye movements, which is just supressed, the REM. rapid eye movements when we sleep and dream, ofcourse when we digest a knowledge in our brains, even if blind, have a vision within the mind. which scientist say, a vision accquired by learning from another senses substituting sight. example, they touch you and they can imagine and figure out what you look like, beautiful or plain shape.. touch an object to see its surface, roughness, smooth etc.. this registered knowledge are stored in a blind persons memory and in dreams are seen in a different visualization, therefore what they touch, hear, feel, taste are expressed although unexplained, they get conclusions of a different meaning from their relied reason of a certain picture of something present in or world.
