What would the world be like today if humans were blind from the beginning
    #25036572 - 03/03/18 07:43 PM (3 years, 2 months ago)

This thought crossed my mind today. We have 5 senses. We used them to our best ability and the world we got is what we achieved.

Then I asked myself, what would it look like if we didn't have eyes or ears or sense of touch, etc. It would be drastically different. We would have found another way to strive with our intelligence.

We wouldn't have had a clue about colors. No concept of it.

That got me thinking, what if we are missing another sense? For example the ability to feel magnetism. Imagine how the world would be if we could actually feel it. Say it's like smell or taste. Too little magnetism and we feel weird as if we would be in a room devoid of sounds and if there is too much of it would would throw up like a horible smell.

We would live in a world where concerts would be a horrible human experience. Speakers are big magnets. Going to a place where speakers are blasting would make us all sick. There are magnets everywhere. Some small like in electronics, others strong like speakers, rotors, natural magnetism of the earth, etc.

Take it a step further. What if we are missing a crucial sense that would make us feel/realize something super important in the universe? It could explain why physics hasn't had any significant progress in a long time. A sense in which it would make something seem super obvious but that we are simply not percieving or even thinking to look at because we have no concept of it. The inability to come up with that aspect of the universe.

Food for thought...

It would be nuts if we had an organ capable of rendering the entire electromagnetic spectrum into some kind of perceptible experience like vision.

Since I started formally getting educated in science it is really starting to come together for me how high-energy electromagnetic waves alter the behavior of electrons and subsequently structure of molecules, one of which eventually was DNA, causing mutations, most of which are self-defeating, but some of which are occasionally improve fitness. I have a lot to learn but, whereas I used to be hyperfocused on the limitations of science, now I keep getting blown away by what scientists ARE capable of. They can create nucleic acids of any sequence by merely typing the sequence into a computer. It's automated polymerization, computed chemistry to create some of the most complex molecules in existence. It took decades for them to sequence the 3ish billion human base pairs; according to my textbook now they can supposedly sequence that many in less than a day.

Also I think the lines between the senses are a lot fuzzier than you're describing.

could be. have you read Snow Crash?

Quote:

The story takes some wild leaps that stretch the believability of the plot. Most notably is a drawn out metaphor that attempts to draw linkage between Snow Crash, an infective computer virus, with biological viruses that developed around the time that agriculture was developing in the pre-historical Western World. This entertaining but unbelievable plot line tries to explain that the Sumerian language, the first written historical language in the Western world, was a “pure” language, was easily understood by all humans much like binary language is a “pure” language understood by all computers. Sumerian died away for unknown reasons and often attributed to the myth of the tower of Babel falling and diverging into the many languages spoken in modern time. The rise of the computer age is at a risk of experiencing an Infoapocalypse due to the susceptibilities inherit in the a common binary language. The rise of religion and the rise of the information age are likened to viruses that affect the way humans interact and cohabitate and the foundation of human interaction is at risk due to the potential Infoapocalypse that would arise if Snow Crash were to infect all of humanity. This is all quite an imaginable plot line that weighs more on the side of entertaining than enlightening.

I think blind humans would evolve eyes or just die. I mean, we get a little warm or cold and we get severely uncomfortable. All the innovations we’ve made require eyes. Even basic measurements would be a challenge. Not to mention food. People are stupid looking and weird, and there’s a reason blind animals live in really specific habitats.

And we can feel magnetism. The reason we don’t feel magnetism in relation to earth is probably the same kinds of reasons we don’t feel it spinning. We could have a God particle sensor and you’d never know it without the right circumstances and instruments.

What if EVERYONE was blind, but you? That would be fucking DOPE!

Dear Kratom,

I've been numb for so long that I forgot how to feel
So I don't care if it will break my heart,
Just fuck me till I disappear
