I used to assume that most people who are blind are in darkness/blackness. But I have recently read stories about people who see spots and dots of
light. They see so much of this visual snow that they are literally blind. But they are not in darkness, but in a fog of colored dots. It must be very
disorienting and frustrating. There is nothing doctors can do about it!
Thank goodness you are not blinded by this phenomenon. Just hope it doesn't get worse or get to the point where it distracts you or actually blinds
I also remember when I was a child I used to see lots of speckles of light even in the darkness. From my memory It seems like I saw it more powerfully
as a child than now. I guess I did notice it more then, but children seem to notice things that adults just have learned to ignore.
The other night I had went to see Green lantern and when they talked about the green light of WILL POWER, there were all these tiny green spots that
would form whatever the Green Lantern was thinking about. After watching that movie, after I left, I started noticing that there were little dots
around me. I mean, I always sort of saw them but never thought much about them and mostly ignored them.
I also see these when I close my eyes.
I have learned to go into a lucid dream by sort of looking into the blackness of my mind, looking at the dots and relaxing until they form shapes and
colors and hypnogogic imagery. I can't do it all the time but when I do, I suddenly feel very relaxed and good and at peace.
I have seen the little sparkles that you can see when you look at the blue sky, these sort of follow the path of your tiny capilaries and I am told I
am actually seeing white blood cells going through the capilaries.
I know what that looks like. I also know what floaters look like. My floaters sort of look like blackish grey outlines of rod shapes or clusters of
round cell shapes or small blackish grey entangled strings. I mostly see these if I look at the overcast sky or go into a white room and just look at
the wall and concentrate. I don't see floaters that much and I don't really try to see them that much, but I do see them sometimes.
I think I know what you mean when you say you see little dots, and maybe we all see them to some extent. Some people just conciously are more aware of
I have read that we don't actually see anything. Everything we think we see is just our brains interpretation of signals recieved. So we recieve so
many signals and our brains interpret what is important and discards the rest. So although we get a lot of imput, we can only interpret some of it.
If we could focus or concentrate on taking it all in and not discarding a bit of it maybe we could "see" more of what is around us. The same thing
goes for any of our senses. You wear clothing, but unless it is chafting you, you probably just discard the information until you don't really
notice the weight or warmth of it. You only have to notice it if you are cold and need more, or hot and need to take some off, or something is
You also don't have to be conciously aware of your breathing all 24 hours of the day. It is only if you stop breathing or someone mentions breathing
to you, that you become aware that you were even breathing.
Maybe if we learn to concentrate more, we can see more and experience more, if we want to.
