Please move to proper forum as needed.
I wear glasses and often question the reason to why I wear glasses because I remember when I was 5, I had "perfect" vision. It wasn't until I came
to America and started watching TV, playing video games, using computers and cell phones that I started wearing glasses.
I made an interesting observation last night.. I was on my computer and then I stepped outside to take a break and stare at the stars. I noticed there
weren't any stars out (2 am) because of light pollution so I just closed my eyes and tried to clear my mind.. 15 minutes later, I look up at the sky
again and I noticed that there ARE stars cutting through the light pollution... So I'm thinking to myself "WTF?" because I didn't see any 15
I'm thinking that maybe it's the computer screen's light that blinded me for a while (like staring into the sun, but smaller scale) and my eyes
needed to recover in order to observe other light.. and I began to wonder how much screens affect your vision, and how many people are constantly
staring at a screen because of jobs, cell phones, for fun, or whatever, and missing out on visual phenomena because of screen blinding... I also
wondered how this could affect our thinking patterns and subconscious thought since light is imprinted in your retina and takes time in darkness to
recover (like when you stare at the sun). Could the lights we are exposing each other to be slowly removing us from our ability to observe real life?
Could the light being imprinted in our minds be shaping our brain waves and thoughts as to observe a certain reality or belief of a reality??
So I was wondering if anyone who uses their computers / watches TV / video games @ night can step outside and look @ the stars. Try to see if you see
them unclear (as I did) then close your eyes to recover, and look again to see if you see more, or see them brighter.
Trolls will be ignored
