    Sometimes when I have my eyes closed, I am able to fully perceive depth.
    Normally when I close my eyes, it is just like a wall of darkness
    with colors floating around. But sometimes, I can experience depth. It
    is very strange to describe, but it feels like everything in my field of
    "vision" is very, very far away. If I open my eyes, sometimes this
    sensation continues for as long as a minute if I do not move my head
    around/make any sudden movements. Can anyone tell me what this is?
    Usually when this happens it is a nice sensation and almost relaxing.

    To get even close to an answer its necessary to be pretty
    philosophical
    snip BS
    snip more BS
    not in the least.
    you're quite taken with yourself aren't you mr. Judd?

    Wow that was not quite the answer I was expecting. I guess there is no
    explanation for what I am experiencing. I've searched google as well as
    the newsgroups but haven't found anything remoteley similar to what I
    described. Although your comments about stages of "seeing" was interesting.

    In this case the treatment of imperfect sight by rest methods is
    complicated.
