Actually, you might be surprised, Krystal. Training in awareness and perception can and does result in states that allow for a much greater range of senses - with a feeling/attention that is even greater than the physical eyes can "see."

"Seeing" from our eyes is just a habit we get programmed to use. With proper sensitivity training, people can "see" with many different facilities other than just the physical eyes.
