I get similar visions where an object or image seems to be alternating between being very large and very small. It seems to only happen when i'm
lying down trying to fall asleep. Its also not something I have any control over, as i've tried many times to just block it out, or think about
something else, but I end up staying focused on this constant shift between large/small until I fall asleep or get back up. This only seems to affect
my vision though. I dont get any reaction from my other senses.
Being a pack and a half a day smoker, i've also had the experience of attempting to fix cigarettes with scotch tape, and not paying enough attention
to where the tape was, so I have many times inhaled whatever byproducts the tape gave off when burned.
However, the visions have always been a part of my life, well before I ever became a smoker, so it seems unlikely that inhaling the tape byproducts
was the cause of these visions, at least in my case.
Seems to me as if this is a natural occurrence, but I would definitely be interested in hearing an explanation for it!
