Can a deaf person hear themselves talk? Idiotic question imo.

Yea but you need a look to something to immagine the object mentally. If someone told me what a fork looked like and I had NEVER seen one I would be pretty confused as what to imagine. But using the brain to pick up images in your head is different than seeing itself and is possible to bring up forms. So if you felt an object like a fork and physically imprinted it to your brain by memory you could get a understanding and then imagine it.

Anyone can test this by one simple way, go into an area where there are a bunch of random objects scattered like maybe a messy droor. And pull something out with your eyes close. Then get a realy good feel for it and basically imagine all the edges you make with your finger to get the basic outline of the object. Once you get good enough you will start picking up curves, blocks and all sorts of shapes at once to get a perfect image of it. Minus color and imperfections ect.

Drawing in your brain is an art just like drawing IRL. It takes some practice, especially if you want to be good enough to make fine detail

You can use more than just your eyes to see.

You have touch, smell, people who can explain how an object looks like to you.



Just because you are blind, doesn't mean you can't imagine things. A blind person imagines constantly how something looks like, by using all the remaining sensors available. By touching a face, they imagine how it looks like. By hold a fork, they can build a picture of how it looks like.

My blind friend is blind since birth said that you can dream about objects you created in your memory through feeling, or your own fabrication. Also he said that you can dream sounds so. I immagine when you close your eyes completely, it is pretty similar to being completely blind. Basics line "Lines" "Squares" Ect are very very easy for them because it can be physically expressed so they learn the shape by feel, then they can dream it easy.
