I was under the impression that EVERYONE sees colors all the time, but the few responses here have started to make me wonder.
I certainly never expected for people to say that they don't pay attention to it.
I am supposing you are talking about this:
When I look at any object, there is a purplish-red/blue glow which traces and borders every aspect. Sometimes if I stare long enough, the "glow"
becomes more apparent than the object itself, then as I lose focus, the colors will start to free flow and the perception is that the objects sort of
twist with the color until you blink...then it's all just back to the same. Also, anytime I close my eyes, colors flow very freely... sometimes
slow, sometimes quickly, forming images like clouds moving in hyper-speed.
I know for a fact that all objects give off a glow and that glow is copied into the visual memory for an amount of time, because when I close my eyes
after staring at this cup, the colors bordering this cup are on the back of my eye-lids, except the colors expand and the cup looks way more
encompassing, and then eventually expands to cover my entire vision, within which vision will more seemingly random pictures and color movements
continue to take place...
Now that I have spent time describing something that -everyone- sees, I wonder why more people haven't responded to this atleast to just say, "Hey.
yeah. We do. It's normal."
