  • Ibn Khaldun, The Muqaddimah, Ch. 6, Section 14, The Science of Speculative Theology
"Every person with perception has the superficial impression that the (whole of) existence is comprised by his perceptions, and that it does not extend beyond them. The matter is different in fact. The truth lies beyond that. One knows that a deaf person feels that the whole of existence is comprised in the perceptions of his four senses and his intellect. The whole group of audible things constitute no part of existence for him. The same applies to a blind person. The whole group of visible things constitutes no part of existence for him. If (people with such defects) were not set right by their adherence to information they received from their fathers and teachers and from the majority of people in general, they would not admit (the existence of those things)."
