This is one of those questions that will always ALWAYS be asked. Along side “what if the colors you see…aren’t the colors I see…but we think they are!”

I would imagine they would get the most insane auditory trip and body high/sensation that you could get, though.

I think it would be different if the person was born blind or if they had become blind later in life. Good question though. Interesting food for thought

Higher levels.

Try eating an entire meal with your eyes shut. It’s hard for me to accurately imagine what anything is like for blind people. I imagine tripping would be incredible because you wouldn’t have your vision to distract you

@pipthecynical, I’m not a doctor, and I don’t play on on TV, so could you please elaborate what the difference between those defects is?

Anyway, I’d like to know too. I imagine the other senses are heightened so it’s got to be a whole other experience. That being said, I’m not blind nor have I ever tripped balls. So I’m extremely out of the loop lol.

Blind people won’t post in this thread

Blind people don’t dream of regaining sight
Death people don’t dream of noises
Mute people don’t dream of their own voices
(so much for poetry)

Maybe scripture can give us a better answer?
John 9:25
Once I was blind, but now I see

Now, what if someone who was blind all their life suddenly lost their hearing and gained sight instead? How would you think that would affect a person?

@pipthecynical, is right. And @kidd, the difference is, in lamains terms, either you are born blind and there is no connection between your eye ball and your brain, hence you have never seen a single thing in your life, not even darkness, because your eyes just dont exist. And the other is having once had eyesight, and then gone blind.

People who at one point had eyesight and lost it, have visuals inside their head just like people who can see do when they trip. And the others, the people who have never had eyesight, have vivid sounds, feelings and emotions run through their bodies.

I know a blind person who gets high, I’ll have to ask him next time I see him.

@yoinkie, Ohh! Alright.

Yes, that makes sense and I understand. Good point. :)

@yoinkie, nice post, i think blind people see what wee see when we close our eyes in a dark room. What else would they see? i just tried it, and now i kind of agree with you, we will never know

@kidd, possibly their hearing is already great and the trip enhances that! sounds like fun

@nightowl, out of 20,000 people on this site, you dont think one is blind? we should ask @jordan

@bobbylloydxd, I totally agree that it would be awesome.

I guess someone trip blindfolded this weekend and report back.

@ilooklikeawaterbottle, How could a blind person read the text on this site? I guess I can’t say for sure, but it seems unlikely that there would be any blind people here. But, it’s still interesting to think about- everything is a matter of perspective and perception.

Kidd (1,058) (@kidd) 5 years, 7 months ago ago

@lucashill, I’m almost positive they have computer software that reads to blind people. I only say this because my uncle who’s losing his sight went to some school that helps those going blind adjust to the new life, and they had computer classes.

It’d be silly to have a computer class for blind people otherwise, lol
