The aim of this work is to show that the rare cases of reading texts and distinguishing colors by blind persons, that is, the manifestation of so-called “alternative” vision observed by some researchers, are not occasional events and there exists a physical process “enabling” the alternative vision. The analysis of the underlying physical process is based, first, on the results of experiments conducted in 1931 by Hieronymus and demonstrating the possibility of growing plants without sunlight in the dark, and, secondly, on the results of experiments investigating alternative vision and conducted in the latter half of the last century by Bongard with Smirnov and the group of Bekhtereva (the Russian Academy of Science). The following conclusion is made in this paper: the alternative vision exists due to transformation of energy of external “primary” light into the energy associated with spin supercurrent emerging in human organism, and the latter is transformed into the energy of “secondary” light detected by the brain’s visual cortex, without projection of the image to the eyes’ retina of a human subject.
