[Comments] (1) : One of the movies John and I recently checked out from the library was At First Sight. It was ok, despite the superfluous bedroom scenes, but one part really struck me. After the main character has surgery, he opens his eyes and sees for the first time and says, "This can't be seeing! This can't be seeing!" How weird would it be to experience sight, or any sense for the first time like that, without any "visual vocabulary"? I imagine it would be pretty scary.

I've heard similar things about cochlear implants. Fascinating.
