Do you think if you lack in one sense, your other senses become better?
In chapter one, the book discusses about the blind bike riders ability to maneuver objects, trees, trails, etc. While reading this I was astonished and thought it was amazing that they use other bodily techniques to travel such as clicking. To relate, I firmly believe that if one's sense becomes limited or lost, another sense will become better. I'm not sure if this is true, and I would have to do further research to prove so. However, from personal experience, I have very bad eyes but very good ears. Is this just by coincidence? Or, is there some scientific relation involved to prove this is true? I know other people that also have one sense that is better than the other. I wonder if this is a type of survival that the human body is capable of? Since the human body naturally heals itself as they say, could this example of senses relate to this belief?
