    You should take ayahuasca or DMT then make a video describing ur experience. Tbh you can't really say what you wont see if you havnt experienced it. Lol

    As a blind guy who lost his site at the age of 20 I can most definitely tell you psychedelic drugs do give visions in the mind without site. Lots of geometric patterns very similar to what I remembered as cellular structures or Aztec drawings. Whether or not this was influenced by my previous memories I could never know. But man it was both mind altering and fun!

    How does he know what sight is if he’s never seen?

    An extremely small part of lsd or mushrooms or peyote is visual. The major change is perception, how you understand things. Why are people making fun of me? I can do that! I LOVE Helen, why was I so mean to her? Snow is AMAZING!! I could pet this cat forEVER. How does it know my name?

    DMT has a direct effect on conciousness, even if your physical body is blind, you'd have an out of body experience so it doesn't matter.

    i imagine your other senses would just be effected even more so without vision. It fucks with all your senses, and if one is unavailable to you, youd probably feel a lot more and feel sounds/music more.

    When you smoke DMT, your brain might not know what visual input is but what about your dna. Your dna is connected to life itself and iam pretty sure you would see something through dmt.

    It's all a part of your subconscious makeup of what you have seen in the past, stimming from the day that you came out of the womba. A blind person could never have that experience because they have never seen the spark of light .....!!!!!🤯💫

    Just like everyone is suggesting, dmt WILL give you visions with your eyes closed. Visions of things your brain has never seen or processed before. I really would love to know your feedback after trying dmt. It has only good things for you.

    smh psychedelics wont give you any new information, it only plays around with what you already have to work with, thats why we can taste sounds and hear colors, its just synesthesia , his senses would probably morph but sight wouldnt be one of them, unless he had sight prior (which he didnt)

    The notion that a blind person cannot have visual images created in their brains is absolutely ridiculous and goes against most of the studies done on the subject. Quite misinformative

  • Robert Oats

    @Tommy please try and take some DMT buddy. As it works on your frontal cortex. So I don't know if your problems are in the frontal cortex or in the retina or the optical nerve itself. I completely understand your scepticism about it all, but you are past the halfway mark and who knows it might be nice to have your visual cortex stimulated even if not by the outside world

    This video has no bearing on the title. This man did not take DMT. He does not know if he would "see". It would be very interesting to hear what he has to say after doing so. The reason I would be interested in that this woman NDE had seen EVERYTHING going on with her in the OR during her death. So much so the doctors were freaking out because she was describing the surgeon's tools in the room. They say DMT is the "God" drug and the experiences are eerily similar to NDE's. This guy in this video is giving an opinion with no backing, unfortunately.
