Does anyone know what is behind seeing with eyes closed ?
I've seen with my eyes closed when i lay down to sleep, perhaps two or three times. It's like if my eyes were open, even a better vision, more defined i would say.
One thing that happens to me a lot when i lay down, is seeing scenes or events pretty clearly. Like watching a movie screen. When starting to enter into the sleep state, i know that there are the hypnogogic (right word?) images one starts to percept when entering sleep, but these are diferente, they are pretty clear pictures.
And im very awake, only with eyes closed, i've managed to get it while sitting on a chair.
I start seeing a piece of the whole picture, a detail, the nerves of a leaf for example, and if i concentrate in that detail the whole picture expands, like turning the light on, and from there i can start moving my 'eyes' through all the 'paint', and stay in this state as long as im not interrupted, even if it is by my own thoughts.
If i want to see something specific, i concentrate on a detail of some place, were i've been, when i start seeing that detail clearly it is like a lock-on feeling and i can see the whole picture, scene, event. Some have movement, some are still pictures, sound is rare.
And sometimes i feel a pressure/itch in area above the eye brows.
It's something that happens pretty often to me, and easy for me to start-up.
Someone with this kind of experience?
