Can a deaf and blind person think?

Humans have senses. And Humans have Mind. Senses do not “Think”. It is “Mind” who “Thinks”. Senses only “sense”.

Mind suitably and meaningfully “organizes” those “senses”.

Mind consciously reminds, reviews, recalls, reflects and analyzes that “organized stuff”. And this is the act of “Thinking”!

Mind can organize sensory data only in few possible styles. I will try to explain this point in my future posts.

In order that mind learns some standard language … it MUST be able to listen. Or it must have been familiar to listening experience, may be of just early life!

A born (totally) deaf and blind person can never learn any language.

And … a person devoid of all the senses canNOT “Think”!

Do we get wisdom through success? or through failure?

Failure and success both can give wisdom. Success takes you above … in skies … Your view ultimately broadens. You see things from above.

Failure may take you closer to your own self. You can better understand your own existence. Failure may take you to the depths. Your view deepens.

Not all people get wisdom though success or failure. Those who can get wisdom, get it from both failures and successes.
