Oliver Sacks - Congenitally deaf and the music of the universe
Type of Spiritual Experience
This observation describes the experiences of the congenitally deaf, which should perhaps finally show that hearing is not a function of the mechanism of the ear it is a function in its own right.
A description of the experience
Oliver Sacks – Seeing Voices
The congenitally deaf do not experience or complain of silence. These are our projections or metaphors for their state. Moreover, those with the profoundest deafness may hear noise of various sorts and may be highly sensitive to vibrations of all kinds. This sensitivity to vibrations can become a sort of accessory sense.
