To me, the story of John Bramblitt is the most interesting. I had no idea that while not having sight, someone could paint an amazing picture. And later being able to touch the painting to fill in the colors is mind blowing. It amazing seeing what a person can do after they lose one of their senses. It is almost if the person gains a power and an ability that is mind blowing to a person who can not do anything as special. I never thought about how different colors of the paint would feel different and that is how he can tell the colors apart. It is crazy to think about how he can feel what he is painting by the way the bristles transmit feelings into the brush's handle and through that he can keep the paint in between the lines. Losing one of your senses, heightens the ability to feel other senses in greater detail.
