      Question Waking hypnagogia

      Does anybody experience what seems to be hypnagogic imagery over your vision? To be more specific it happens when its bright or you stare at a point for a long time more vividly but its always there very faintly... Like millions of tiny little shapes so nothing ever really looks one colour but a big mix up. Its like when you press in your eyes and see those weird swirls and twirls but alot lesser. What could this be? Does anyone else experience this? Or am I just insane ?

      Thanks alot

      you are not insane thats for sure. i see these dots which look dark with closed eyes and bright white with opened eyes quite often and without pressing my eyes. also sometimes the colors are braking to their basic and it feels like a glitch in 'the matrix'
      i dunno if this is what you meant but hope it helped a bit

      I experience this too, I know exactly what you're talking about!

      Well Its good to know im not mad! Its not really a bad thing, just always there, I think pretty much everyone will have it because its something you wont see unless you think about it, because we're so used to it.

      I think that is just regular eye stuff... lots of little pixels; rods & cones happily firing.

      Whenever I stare into space for a long time I expierence that. I'll see little dots and colours floating through the air. I think it's just a normal thing to expierence when your eyes focus to long on a spot.

      I've always seen random blinky lights swirling in my vision if I've just done any strenuous activity. Also I can notice a film grain effect, always, if I focus on it. And ever since I've done acid I can create mini colorful swirls if I'm staring at the right surface. Floaters can be fun to stare at as well. Visual perception is fun xD

      They are known as floaters (little white things appearing everywhere in your vision but no matter how much you move your eyes you cannot look directly at them) and can be seen more when looking at an empty space that isn't white. Try looking at the sky at a bright day with no clouds. They will be especially visible. It happens to everyone on Earth and it's nothing to worry about.

      It is NOT hypnagogia I believe it happens because of some gel like substance in each of your eyes

      Yes I get these as well along with other tiny clear shapes that move in and out of focus! Dont worry, Most people dont even notice these but most here focus on things a little differently

      saw a documentary the other day where people in a sleep lab were deprived of rem sleep. they apparently needed to catch up so they started to dream in real life too, like images overlaid onto reality

      here it is, its very interesting. also perhaps the reason that psychological treatments that just repress peoples connection with their subconscious dont work very well

      Yup! I've had a lot of hypnagogic imagery, a couple times sound, and in one instance I experienced a hypnic jerk. I've also faded through hypnopompia. It's awesome stuff! Read some more about hypnagogia: wiki!

      I had it so badly as a kid, they would turn into monsters, I guess I learned to tune it out over time. I can still see it if I think about it, hell I can see it looking at my wall right now.

      wikipedia HPPD ; a hyperactivity of neurons in eyes basically. over opened visual perceptory system to be more precise... coincides with synaesthesia. basically a vivid imagination.

      aka lots of static inside of static.. colour films.. if i listen to brainwaves of chanting or something repetitive i can see my whole imagination kinda vibrate to it, almost as if seeing the sound while feeling it. I even get complex hallucinations if i really let it go, film mode type dreams, dreams taking form ontop of reality. i often think my cat is walking around on my bed (i can see and feel him) only to find he's not actually there and realize it's just my thoughts putting energy into the idea of the cat being there... n then tend to change it back into a colour hypnagogic n let it float away into my lil mental abyss

      got trouble sleeping sometimes cause when dark in my room my imagination just fills the darkness, got used to it though. started after lotsa drugs, n only really enhanced and more understood through lotsa meditation.
