We must breed this child with our most beautiful women. We must collect samples of his DNA, manufacture clones of him, and then either breed the clones with our most beautiful women or harvest their eyes and transplant them into the highest bidders.

Not sure about the reading in dark part, but there are articles about how some blind people can use echolocation to walk around without a stick to help them.

What is this reputable source that you talk about that beats video evidence and an academic study?

saw a doco on this a couple of years back and it's pretty cool. Apparently it's hard to learn as an adult but the host had his son try and learn using a handheld clicking device and he was able to navigate a maze made out of poles with a blind fold on.
