If the feel of a sense modality is determined by the laws that characterize the mode of interaction we have with the environment when we use that modality, then, among many other possibilities, we should, for example, be able to see with our ears or through the sense of touch, providing we arrange things to obey the same laws of interaction as when we see with our eyes. Such sensory substitution is a challenge that has been investigated in different ways, as shown in this chapter.
