    it's only a question, and a completely sincere one at that...

  5. Doesn't look like phosphenes, which are more localized and have a
    specific cause. What that pic shows looks more like background "noise".
    I think most people see something other than pure black with their eyes
    closed, and it is probably just random firing of axons along the visual
    pathway. Nothing to worry about.

    I have for along, long time, seen channels of color - it looks like a
    long tube down which I travel, and the orbs of color change - starts
    small and come forward toward me (getting larger) and then disappears.
    Then the next color develops, and so on. I can make myself see this
    when I meditate or are on the brink of sleep - I started doing it for
    amusement when I was a young child and can still do it today.
    Initially, I think it was random firing of the axioms (?) but now I
    have some control over it.

    The weird thing is, now I have retina problem in one eye (idiopathic
    CNV). I don't know if it's associated...?

    could you draw it L?

    I have a couple of people who are drawing me pictures of what they see
    and emailing them to me...

    I'm going to put up a few, side by side, to see what people see....

    it's weird, but the image you see when you have your eyes closed is
    probably the thing you see most of in your life, every night and
    morning. yet we never seem to share it.

    untill today I assumed everyone saw the same!!! :) I'd love to see some

  8. If it is a given fact that the visual cortex responds by seeing light
    when it is being stimulated, it cannot be assumed that these light
    appearances have anything to do with the eyes. If a tumor, cyst or
    other growth was pressing on the visual cortex, a constant barrage of
    light stimulus might be seen in the dark. We can't rule out the idea
    of advising a CT scan and VER to see if there's abnormal physiology

    Hmmm. I'll have to give that one some thought.

    Sounds really similar. I think mine have gotten smaller (and larger),
    as well. I also see a lot of colors - blue, green, red, orange,
    yellow. It is so serene and pleasurable.

    Not really, it's moving. Imagine a train coming toward you in a tunnel
    of darkeness, but the light is colored - it gets larger and larger and
    eventually engulfs you/passes you. As it gets almost to you, another
    color light is taking its place - then another, and another.

    I also have the "shrinking light" vision the other poster mentioned.
    See my other reply.

    If anyone else posts here, or comments on the blog, could they please
    tell me which country they're from

    I posted to a mainly uk group, and almost everyone agreed with what i
    see, yet the international groups seem to disagree...

    seems strange but it's almost like people from different countries see
    different things?!?!
