What does someone who is blind and deaf dream of?

Had this random thought today,

So if every humans brain creates a reality- counciousness during REM sleep then what would someone without these two senses dream about? For example would a nightmare have bad smells?

Good question, I guess It would depend on weather or not they have been blind and deaf there whole life’s. If not they might be much better at lucid dreaming. Perhaps they would find it easier to differentiate waking life from dream life. If they have in fact been blind and deaf their whole life’s then I would assume the the possibilities to be endless. They can probably perceive with senses we do not even know exist. But just remember, we see with the mind not with the eyes. So if they have never “seen” anything in the “physical world”, while sleeping, they may be able to see into other dimensions we couldn’t even dream of. Pun intended.
