Sometimes when I dream I see things that are compleatly made up. Things from people to creatures to objects. Plus they get an idea of what things look like when they touch them so.

maybe they hear noises and see colours. or maybe its something like the nirthern lights and its shiny and colourful.

interesting question.

I reread my response so let me clear up what I meant. I see things in my dream that I’ve never seen before so why couldn’t blind people?

According to this link, people who have been blind since birth only have auditory dreams.

What an intriguing question… thanks for asking this.

My dad often says that you don’t see with your eyes, but with your mind. I believe that they do have dreams and experience what we would call “visual” but they dont have a reference of that “visual” experience so their mind simply dont know what it is and try to compensate or “explain it” with the others senses. But that’s just my thoughts.

Subconscious mind is not blind.Dreams originate there.
