hi y'all

i was staring at the clouds earlier thinking to myself - and a question jumped into my brain

when i think to myself its in a softer, more fluffy version of my own voice

what voice does a person who only talks with sign language have?

can a deaf person hear a voice in their head?

what do blind people see when they dream?

do people in wheelchairs run in their dreams?

just a thought

we're still waiting for the sun to come out
it never does when you want it to
it dares you to stop waiting
it doesn't care one way or the other
and here we are, still waiting .....

just a long wait......

I don't have the answers. But, I cannot swim but have seen myself swim in my dreams. I did not drown,

When I think, I usually find myself thinking in English though it is my second language. But, I wonder what language do I speak in my dream.

I currently use a completely different language that I do not understand much for everyday. But, may be because all my school-life, when it came to thinking, reasoning, and learning, I have been using my second language.

@ cass : not that one. . the other pills.

oh, here's another random thought (while trying to fall asleep)....why suffer making the choice? Why not just take both the red and blue pills..what would happen? a dual world interpretation (as opposed to MWI :)) coloured purple...a permanent gate where I can move back and forth between the matrix and my reality/truth...the mind in one and the physical body in the other...perhaps it's just better to take the sleeping pill :( ...

BB: time to take swimming lessons ;)

dom: it's interesting when you said "think to myself" instead of "talk to myself", cos then you don't need voices/sounds for that...

hi dom, do you actually or literally hear voices or are you just having the usual garden-variety internal monologue.....altho...that fluffy voice is a bit problematic esp if it has lost that clipped Brit tone.....perhaps we shld ask a therapist who can give us a better insight..... :lol: :lol:

I too have a voice in my mind talking to me .. . :lol: it's not just U, Dom. Plus, sometimes I wonder if someone can actually hear the voice that is talking to me . . a bit phobic there.

Dream might be another vast yet not much explored subject which has always been mystery for us. Like, do animals dream?

Dom's first post here made me think a little harder than usual. We remember people by their faces usually. If I am talking of Dom then I think of someone with dark face but light colored triangular ears, etc etc . .the face of the person comes to our mind. . but how do blind people remember people? Just relating them to their names (?braille). . I want to ask this to someone who is blind from birth someday.

My German friend says she usually thinks to herself in English but when counting in her head she uses the German because it feels un-natural to count in English

"can a deaf person hear a voice in their head?"

I also have a deaf friend who recently had a cochlear implant removed as she couldn't concentrate because of all the noise so I guess all is silent in her head when she thinks

I guess this is a quite good source for this. Read the post by alannie, it sounds (what a word here...) good and even for the non-deaf understandable.
As deaf by birth people have to think and can think perhaps they use the learning ways and techniques that all babies use (who first cannot speak but there is also something going on it their brains and they have intellectual abilities, otherwise they would not learn language at all). Perhaps we would not understand finally the think-language of a deaf person, because it develops in their own way (i.e. different pronounced), but they have a language too. The human brain is complex and extremely flexible and finds its way to get it.
