Daniel Kish: Blind Vision
The development of the guessing attitude due to sensorial deprivation is a scientifically established fact. Its mechanism is similar to the way blind people develop compensatory abilities. It is known that people lacking some sense may develop extraordinary abilities. It was believed that this is a result of the sharpening of the other senses. However, in the last decades this thesis has been experimentally disproved. Now it is known that compensatory abilities are the result of brain reorganization, and not of a sharpened sensitivity of the intact organs of sense.
