    You're not the brightest of the bunch, are you?

    Dreams are hallucinations derived from the brain. You do not need eye sight to dream.

    I think that he was asking how they could have an image of the outside world if they had been born blind.

    To which the answer would presumably be that it all stems from their imagination and how they perceive the world around them.

    Dreams are thoughts. They work the same way if you're blind as they would if you have sight. The only difference would be that you'd dream of sounds primarily. Bad nightmares are apparently very common if you're blind, ones where you can't identify where you are or what's going on because the sounds you're dreaming of don't make sense.

    Even blind people don't completely see pitch black, there's plenty with some sight. My grandmother's legally defined as blind, due to cartaracts, but can see fairly okay with high-level prescription glasses.

    What I'm really saying is, most blind people can see something at least. Likely a distorted perception of an object we can see clearly. The question is rather vague, as evident by my confusion and your needed elaboration.

    There is no conclusive proof blind people can't see images from hallucination.

    Agree with you. You don't need eyes to see dreams.

    well some people are completely blind, I work as a support worker for death blind people and some just were born without vision. It is one of the most common question that we among staff ask ourselves, how do they dream, what do they dream. If they have never seen light or moving objects, what is trapped there in their imagination
