I know it seems like ushering someone off to seek medical advice seems like the most responsible thing to do in cases like this, but his post referred
to the experience as a 'black-out' of sorts.
What the OP is referring to is where basic vision of the external world is suddenly shifted inwards towards a mental world
. The same thing
happens when one daydreams or imagines something. The only danger this poses to the person experiencing it is if they are doing something that
absolutely requires their vision to be external - like driving, operating machinery, etc.
You really would only need to seek medical advice if you literally blacked-out, meaning you lost vision while walking or doing something physical.
Usually this is accompanied by light-headedness, difficulty breathing, nausea, and sudden weakness...like fainting, and this could be caused by a
number of things. That doesn't sound at all like what you described.
ParaZep, I honestly don't believe you have a problem by any means, you simply have a great imagination - one that can reach a little into the future
and touch upon small events that you will eventually experience.
I've personally experienced such 'shifts to internal vision
' over the past 10 years or so, some of which have led to visions of small
personal future events. Examples are knowing what's in store for the day, knowing what colours the next person I meet around the corner will be
wearing, knowing when I'm about to receive distressing phone calls, etc.
ParaZep, if you have a problem, then I have a problem too.
