What do you see?

This happens to me too, i see black sometimes, but there are usually shapes and moving things on my eyelids! :wow: :wow:

I’ll take the opportunity to ask—this has always bugged me a little. When you get low blood pressure and your vision fades, do you also see a bee hive–like pattern?

When I close my eyes, I see colorful tracers, and things that look like ink splotches everywhere. Depending on my mood, I can sometimes see actual objects of varying detail.

Things really get crazy when I’m having a panic attack, when I get derealization, when I’m very tired, or if i’m incredibly sad/depressed.

Plain nothingness here :bored:

Hmm, I don’t.
I’m pretty sure everyone sees different things tho.
Some may see colorful circles, for example.

I don’t get. You should see at least some colored circles on a dark background (or otherwise). At least something. I can’t imagine closing my eyes and seeing pure blackness.

Like I said earlier, I see black also. It’s not that we “should” see something. That seems like a stereotype. It’s like, I tell you all to imagine the sky your sky is gonna all be different colours. Some people can’t even imagine -just- the sky, some can’t imagine the sky at all. I don’t ever see anything, it’s even hard to force myself to imagine something. It just doesn’t work… There’s nothing wrong or abnormal about it. It’s just how some of us are.

i feel like some will say they don’t see it, but that’s because they’re not looking in the right way

There’s no right or wrong way to look. I have seen nothing my whole life. I really don’t think it’s a matter of “looking right”

I see red, blue, and green blotches of color. When I’m stressed I see flashing lights, and when I’m really angry, I see only red.

Iv’e tried looking deeply for quite a while, but no colours atall. ^^ It’s just nice and black which is very relaxing in it’s own way for me, a Blank canvas I can work on and let my imagination roam free.

Ditto. Sometimes I can feel like I can make geometric shapes, though. Which is weird because I hate math generally. :eek:

I tend to not look at my eyes when I start, I normally look up into my mind. And sometimes amazing images just come out of knowhere. ^^

I will try looking abit more closely now at what I see whilst meditating or something. Just to double check? lol :content:

Edit: since the URL of the pic broke I edited out the Quote, it was just a black picture

:lol: even that black picture is crawled by dots :razz: they fly by here and there

When I close my eyes, I always see patches with circle rings. They are always bright colours … red or green mainly.

When I was a child I asked my mum if she saw the same and she replied she only saw darkness when she shut her eyes.

lol Ghostie, I don’t see anything but solid black in that picture. Maybe we all perceive the colour black differently?

Thats what Ive been thinking too :cool: that the black isnt the same black for everyone, but since its called black, everyone calls it black due to that theyre learned to.

what if this black looked like this in another persons eye? :cool_raz:

i guess i must be diffrent cause mine are blue and white XDD after straing at them for a while they move into shapes and all other neat stuff. one time they toke the shape of earth with the sun rising behind it. but really the only times i get animations like that is either when im sleepy or listening to some real good inspirational music. :tongue: but they are ALWAYS there lol
