Painter With No Eyes Draws Things Sighted People Get Wrong.

And skeptics swoon at the shattering of another impossibility.

Yet another instance where the dogma of science and conventional wisdom are both completely off the mark.

Esref Armagan

this link to a YouTube video from the Discovery Channel explains that, due to a genetic defect Esref was born with no eyes. Unlike some blind people, whose eyes still send signals to the brain, Esref relies solely on information he has gathered from movement, touch and spatial awareness.

Skeptics, who tend to rely solely on the word of science, would dismiss any 2nd hand discussion of this man as a complete impossibility. But humanity has absolutely no comprehension of what our brains (read: the entirety of a person as a whole interactive organism) is capable of.

That alone is cause for hope.
