Senseless Senses

I decided to give up on my sense of sight for 10 minutes today. To me, losing my sight would be one of the scariest and toughest things to encounter. Therefore I decided to give up this sense. Safe to say that I was totally thrown off and it was extremely difficult to navigate even my own house. I've heard that when sight is lost, hearing will naturally improve in order to pick up the "slack". I think that this is true to some extent but I think that it has more to do with the visually impared consciously picking up on subtle sounds that everyone can hear but don't take the time to actually "hear" or decipher. Ten minutes is obviously not enough time to give my hearing enough time to adjust to a new way of seeing, nor did I know what to listen for. So yea...I think the below picture explains what happened.
