Hard Decisions



or deaf?
If you had no other choice than to decide from either becoming blind or deaf, what would you do?

First of all, I'm aware that this question could be referred to as hostile and disrespectful towards those who don't have a choice, but please don't get me wrong. I have been thinking about this eversince I was a child and I supose most of you have done that, too - at least one time. But did you ever make up your mind? As for me, I have come to the conclusion that if I really HAD to choose, I'd probably decide to be deaf rather than to be blind. Although, to be honest, I still can't really imagine a world without any music nor sound. On the other hand, I guess I just couldn't live without seeing anything, but probably could without any music or sound in general (even though that would most probably make me a sad person for the rest of my life). This brings me to my next scenario: Try to seriously imagine a soundless or even visually blank world. Total silence. Black- / White-ness. So, what do you think? Oh and again, please don't get me wrong: I'm not high or anything, haha. I have simply been thinking about this for while and were interested in what you thought about this subject. ;)



  1. easy, id be deaf. Im very visual! :)


  2. easy? ok, now imagine you wouldn't be able to hear a single tone for the rest of your entire life. "sounds" awkward, doesn't it? ;)
    but still, I share your point of view. have a good one, x

  3. this is a very good question and I often think about such things...but I would chose blindness... everything can be described and along with a sense of touch, you can get an idea of what beauty is..but music is essential, and that is something that you wouldnt be able to visualize to understand...
