I was stuck in a waiting room yesterday and the best they had for magazines was Reader’s Digest, a magazine that would do well to drop the apostrophe in its name and start featuring food porn. Anyway, I read an article on the blind guy who uses echolocation to find his way around. While that in itself was very cool, what caught my interest was the results of the brain scans they did of him. It wasn’t his auditory system that lit up as he click-identified the size and shape of items in the room, it was his visual system. He was seeing with his mind’s eye, consciously or subconsciously, exactly as sighted people do. I just thought I’d share that with you as there is a distinct lack of food or porn within reach to distract me from these more important topics.
