So instead of seeing a dream they'll hear it?


I'd say audio only dreams would be hard to remember compared to dreams fuelled by sensory input from all senses, e.g. the dreams we non blind people (From birth) have, so blind people (From birth) most likely forget most of their dreams if not all.



Hmm. Quick(and possibly stupid) question; When dreams become vividly real, is it possible to hear them as well?

I believe that's what is called a lucid dream.

Not entirely sure on what you're asking but if you're talking about remembering every last detail of a dream as it was a real life encounter I've had that experience often in nightmares.

Edit: Fun fact, lucid dreaming is an excellent way to warp nightmares into fun dreams.

You know those vivid dreams that seem real right? Is it possible to hear something from a vivid dream?

Its a very interesting subject. There are apparently ways to train yourself to get lucid dreams more often.
I sadly never experienced one.

Don't you need to be in REM sleep when that happens though?

if you were born blind you can't see dreams, but can only make up shapes. If you have become blind due to age or something else then yes you can still see dreams. if you used to watch tv in black in white then you sometimes will dream in black and white. If you play alot of video games you most likely will have third person and lucid dreams.

Lucid dreams are described as vivid but not all vivid dreams are lucid, I think. Also I think there should be no reason why you cannot remember a particular sound from a vivid dream. Lucid dreaming is awareness that you're in a dream (I think) and vivid dreams are dreams that seem real (I think). Don't take any of my word for this as I'm only guessing really, haven't done psychology in years (In which I studied this).

http://www.world-of-lucid-dreaming.com/the-stages-of-sleep.html this answers that.

Edit: So the answer is most likely in REM sleep you will experience lucid dreaming rather than other stages but it is not necessary.

I really dont know anything about the specifics, you should probably ask someone more knowledgeable on the subject
