      Does anyone else see things at night/in the dark???

      Last night I couldn't sleep. So I just laid there wide eyed and I was experiencing mild hallucinations. Like...i could turn white noise into tiny numbers if I wanted to or i would see visual manifestations of thoughts or something. It wasn't Hypnagogic..cause I wasn't falling asleep, but it also felt surreal. I am all kinds of freaked out. This happened a while last night. Does anyone else experience this?

      We've discussed in here before that sometimes you can be apparently in REM even before falling asleep - I get that sometimes especially if I haven't been getting enough sleep or am a bit sleep deprived. I can feel it even before i go to bed - there's like a subtle but powerful spinning feeling throughout my body and the sense that my brain is highly active with dream. And if I close my eyes, even standing up, I immediately see imagery that can begin to move as if it's a dreamlet forming. In this state I can go directly into a dream almost before I'm even asleep. Actually I want to say before falling asleep, but I'm not totally sure - if I experience it again soon I need to pay attention to that.

      I should add - I went through a pretty long period where I suffered a lot of sleep deprivation for years. That apparently causes things like this.

      I don't remember - did you use psychedelics in the past?

      No, i am adamant against drugs. This is just weird. Like I can be thinking about a snickers bar and then I see the word 'SNICKERS' on my ceiling. I feel like I am going insane, this isnt deliberate and it is kinda freaking me out. Even closing my eyes..and I am not even falling asleep, I will be hit with this sudden..intense scene playing out (as if it were on pause) and when I open my eyes..things in that scene start to vividly pop up in my actual vision. Like numbers or shapes.

      I don't get this in the daytime or light. I keep testing some pathological reasoning....like dementia or something. I know that sounds odd, but I feel kinda alone in this

      I wonder if it's something similar to synesthesia?

      I was just looking @ the Wiki page for ^ and ran across something called Ideasthesia. <- That's a direct link to the page. Any chance that could be it?

      "I could turn white noise into tiny numbers if I wanted to or i would see visual manifestations of thoughts or something."
      White noise is loss of signal or is the noise of life or your mind.
      So, turning this into numbers would mean...? Well, what do numbers mean or do, or represent? Don't cheat.
      Spoiler for Meaning of numbers:
      Likewise, visualising your thoughts. Or your thinking makes your reality, in control or not.

      So I think you were doing, or playing out, what you want to do in reality. Far from going mad, though that may reflect how you sometimes feel now.
