I think I agree with you on this, and for about the same reasons. I too am
a visual learner with a strong visual memory, almost (but not quite) eidetic
(photographic). I would dearly miss the sunrises and sunsets, the blue
skies, and my wife's warm eyes looking back.

Yet I have had the privilege of getting to now a woman here in Akron who has
been blind for most of her life. It does not hold her back a flick - she is
an accomplished gospel singer and one of the most human people I know.
Indeed, her blindness allows her to "see" much more than sighted people.

There are many "substitutes" for hearing and speech, but none for sight.
