Echo Location

Luckily, I have been born blessed with all of my senses in tact. With that said, it's easy for me to take for granted my ability to see everything and everywhere I am going. Since the day I learned about some people being blind, and unable to use their eyes to navigate through life, I've always wondered how in the world they were able to move through life almost as if nothing is wrong. The chapter involving the intricacies of echo location intrigued me very much so. Being a sighted individual, I can't even imagine having such heightened hearing to be able to pinpoint objects and obstruction through rebounding sound waves. To think people are even able to mountain bike solely on their ability to echo locate is truly incredible! Whenever I visualize people echo locating, I can't help but think of the movie Daredevil starring Ben Affleck as a blind vigilante who uses echo location to beat down on bad guys. If you haven't seen it, enjoy this clip! Apologies, this video was unable to be attached directly to my post!
