I would say op and smith change you meditation type.
Go in for walking mediataion as first taught by the buddha,
Just walk barefoot grass under feet, slowly be in present become more and more aware of each slow step count them to 21 until absorbed and no
Also if tired in sitting or relaxed meditation count your breath do a vispanna meditation, take the breath as your focus, and OPEN your eyes not
closed, dont stare just look focus on spot about 2-3 ft just below your nose at eye level, relax the eyes, let them close and blink, when you can
honestly get to 21 with no distraction, illusions, past, future, judging, comparing etc just being aware on just your breath for 21 counts, honestly
then you will see real progress.
Many think its easy, if your honest about being just present no this or that and keep bgoing back to 1 when slip or get distracted... well most take
at least six months to get there (true absorbed experience) some years.
This will wake you up and stop the pretend illusions you see, and think are signs of progress.
Real progress in meditation is experienced when not meditatating in things like higher sensory accuity, a feeling of rising joy and love, coincidenses
and also pyschic phenomia. Most noticabily higher energy levels and better memory and concentration, and health.
Many think they are making progress but just turning their ignorance from the outside to the inside. One illusion to another.
Once you have tasted this true meditation you never go back, never want to cease never get bored with it, in fact there is real dangers of addiction
and therefore no further progress, look into the "formless realms" as a place of reincarnation to describe this.
OP no alien came to your room besides what your mind created, the lights are just fantasies, and neurons firing off in your visual cortex esp if eyes
As you have experience and are settling your mind, take some advice dont learn any Bad Habits, do the oldest and best meditation as I point out above,
honestly for 10- 20 minutes twice a day, morning and evening I promise you could post on here in six months and have a totally differant experience,
from anything youve had so far, and of depth and reality not fleeting and not real.
