There are a lot of different things being described in this thread, but I am particularly interested in one phenomenon. This is what I call a constant
"rain of light." I will try to help people see what I see. I believe that everyone can see it given the proper instructions. I have already helped
several people see it.
First off though, here are the things that have been described in this thread that are not what I am describing:
1. Floaters -- I have these. I know what these are and these are not floaters. Floaters often appear when you look up at the sky and usually fall
downward slowly when you keep your eye still but move along with your eye when you move your eyeball. They are usually circular but sometimes take
different shapes and are clear and bubble-like. What I am seeing is a constant RAIN of what appears to be light. They are not discrete particles but
seem to be millions of strings of light that move very fast and could more easily be seen when it is dark.
2. Visual Snow - What I gather is that visual snow is composed of particles that seem to lie on a flat plane and that move but only in a limited
manner. They are also disruptive in that they obscure a person's "normal" vision. They are like static. What we are seeing is 3D and, like I said,
seem more like a heavy downpour than grainy pixels or static.
3. Blue Sky Sprites - Most of the people on this thread obviously describe these. I don't necessarily buy the mainstream explanation for these
(shadows of blood cells cast on the retina) and these may also be some form or energy. However, these are definitely not what we are observing. These
things move in SQUIGGLY lines and are similar to tadpoles. They are more easily seen against the blue sky. They are points of light that are scattered
across the sky. What we are seeing are easier to observe in relative darkness. They are not discrete particles that are tadpole-like, but are
continuous streams of what appears to be light.
Now, on to a more detailed description of this "rain of light" or rain of energy.
They look exactly like that -- like rays of light or energy that are falling down in different directions (some straight down, some towards the left,
towards the right, et cetera) in what appears to be a heavy downpour. They are everywhere. It takes a certain shift of focus to see them, but once you
see them they could in fact be a little overwhelming because they move so energetically and they are all around us. Again, they are easier to see
either in the dark or against dark backgrounds, but they could be seen anywhere and at any time, even in broad daylight.
Again, I am sure everyone could see this, given the proper focus. Here is the easiest way to do so:
Go outside at night and look down at the grass. However, instead of focusing your sight on the grass itself, try to look at the air between your eyes
and the grass. Wait a while. Most of the time, people see it instantly, but if you don't, do not worry. Just relax a bit and keep staring at the empty
space. Eventually you will see what I have described above.
Now, for those claiming that it is a neurological condition, a trick of the light, an eye defect, et cetera, try this:
Once you start seeing the "rain of light" or "matrix of light," hold your hands up. Look at the tips of your fingers. See anything? Okay. Now move
your hands around and observe the air around them. You will see a very noticeable "disturbance" in the "rain." This is like a clear liquid that is
spread out all around your hands and that move through the "rain" very clearly.
I find it very interesting that I have only seen a few people describing this here and in other threads, but that every single person I have tried to
show this to have succeeded in seeing it. I am not claiming that I am a "unique snowflake." Quite the contrary. I am claiming that everyone could see
this if only they take the time to look, and they achieve that slight perceptual shift needed to see it. You do not have to blur your vision to see
this. All you need to do is stare at the air.
I believe this is some form or energy (chi, prana), but I find it fascinating that there seem to be hardly any accounts of it, even in these forums
and in mystical texts. I am interested to know if seeing this is a relatively recent development in human history. If so, why? I hope other people who
could see this too could come forward and engage in an open-minded and intelligent discussion about this.
