Just wondering...If beauty is in the 'eye' of the beholder, than what do blind people consider beautiful?
Whatever touches their hearts directly!
Afterall beauty is what senses (eyes in this case) perceive at first and touches our hearts through 'em..
So you can be sure what they think is beautiful is REAL beauty, not just skin deep!If beauty is in the 'eye' of the beholder, than what do blind people consider beautiful?
don't you know blind people are the most sensitive with regards to feelings.....and touch....and hearings....you could learn lessons from them....sometimes looks and appearances deceive...but blind person can hear the beat of your heart...can smell the likes of you....can taste your happiness and sadness...they are sensible to feelings....though they are not perfect...who are anyway....they can really tell who is beautiful and not....beautiful in its essence and understanding.....
It's a metaphor to them. They saying can be talking about physical beauty, but also a humans inner beauty. A blind person See's a beautiful personality.
The melodious sound of a bird calling it's mate, the gentle kind sound of a human voice, in much contrast to the harshness of reality.
Check out Synaesthesia or its modern spelling synesthesia. V.S. Ramachandran is sort of an expert on the topic.
This might not be the avenue to to find blind people's opinions.
