Maybe I'm just weird, but for as long as I can remember, I have seen an image of a grey spiral-staircase (made of stone, as if in a castle) whenever I have closed my eyes. I'll do it now... Yep, there it was. Now, sometimes this image is very clear, and at other times it is faint; but it is nearly always there.

Now, I was wondering, does anybody else see anything (other than eyelids) when they close their eyes? And if so, what do you think it means?

Regards,

Caleb Strange.

P.S. This is not one of my flights of fancy. This happens everytime I close my eyes. Smile

No Caleb, you are weird.

Not to say this is a bad thing.

p.s. do you see a light at the top (or bottom) of these stairs?
If so stay away from it.
Stay away from the light Caleb, FOR GOD'S SAKE DON'T GO NEAR THE LIGHT!!!

They look like multicolored sparks flying around. Weird.

Phosphorenes...just like every now and then I wake up in the middle of the night...and turn on the lights...

And watch the colored splotches throb and somehow reality resolves itself from this.

These go from a red and black pattern on white...to some amazing purple and green patterns on black.

Vision is amazing.

Payne, as it happens, I've 'explored' this staircase through active imagination, and haven't (yet) come to any harm. I'll heed your advice though, and endeavour to steer clear of the light! Smile

My partner gets the dancing spots, lights and shapes, and I kind of envy her. They sound fun.

JonTown mentioned reality resolving itself from coloured splotches when the lights are switched on. I found this interesting, as, for the past few months, when I have opened my eyes on waking, I have occasionally seen distinctive geometrical patterns (hexagonal and octagonal), kind of like beautiful Moorish tiles.

Anyone else get this pulsing and gorgeous lattice on waking, or should I take dpe666's advice and up the dosage?

Regards,

Caleb Strange.

Sounds exactly like an acid trip. If you close your eyes when you're tripping you get these effects but really bright. I'm told.

I get the colored sparkles and the moorish tiles.
Get them most everytime I rub my eyes deeply.
I seem to remember reading about this as being a natural occurance. There is something released in the eyes when rubbed like that...

Oh, and even so that this is a natural phenomonon, don't let that stop you from upping the dosage - I don't!

OK, if you have Windows, and have ever used Windows Media Player, when you play music and the screen does all those colors and they move around, that's what I see.

Before the moorish tiles, I usually see the outline of a woman behind window shades. Everything is pink.

Usually I see a crow in darkness. But in a moment, I start to see many movements of action with cards. In most of mornings when I woke up, I see clearcut image of a completed creation of card trick.

Windows Media Player squiggles, outlines of women—my friends, you are seeing some interesting stuff. I feel an idea for an effect coming on...

As for the crow in darkness, Hideo Kato, not sure whether this was a joke or not, but it is such a powerful and creepy image. I feel a bizarre effect/story coming on. BTW that would be a cool name and theme for a show "A crow in darkness". Many thanks for stimulating my sleepy mind.

Chrystal, I've never been able to visualise the jumping sheep; and, as an occasionally desperate insomniac, goodness knows I've tried! Are these imagined animals fluffy little lambkin-type things, or are they more like the dung-crusted and foot-and-mouth infested beasts we seem to have here in the UK?

Regards,
Caleb Strange

Maybe you envision your past life? Rhett Butler perhaps?
