i believe i read somewhere that blind people dream in mostly sounds. which makes sense because of the fact that what we dream about every night are collaborations of things we have seen, heard, smelled, etc, whether consciencly or subconsciously. so if you were born without sight you wouldnt have the memories to dream of. but if you lost your sight anywhere after, say, 5 years of age, then you would have memories to collaborate with your other senses and still have what you and i consider "normal" dreams. i studied dreams for awhile in psychology. it captivated my interest because i guess i am part of only 12% of people who dream in black and white. anyway you may wanna double check that but i believe its the answer to your question i am super baked but glad you are pondering. now what i wonder is if someone is both blind and deaf, can they really dream in simply smells tastes and touch. if anyone on here is blind and deaf...well...would whoevers reading this to them please ask them to explain how they dream?

if they were born blind, then no they do not see in their dreams but if they once were able to see then they can see in their dreams, but say they lost their sight at age 15 and they are now 50, they still see in their dreams the way things looked when that person was 15,,,,,, does that make sense?

omg i know right!?!?! like is it just darkness or is it like them dreaming of what they would see if they could see?

De acuerdo to 4green2child0, many people who could see earlier in their lives experience sight in their dreams, but people who were blind from birth can't. Just like you can't experience completely new senses in your dreams. Or, how before you had been high, you couldn't dream about being high, but now you can probably have a pretty realistic dream in which you're high.

Blind people who have not been blind they're whole life can see in their dreams, but people who are born blind can only see figures and images and sounds.

&If they can see in their dreams, what do they see if they haven't seen anything before?

yes they can. dreams are caused by DMT which is the strongest natural hallucinogen and your brain produces this during REM sleep.... i think its awesome that we make our own cannabinoids and hallucinogens :)
