I see these too but not every time. Mine are more neon purple/violet, and sometimes it looks like a purple flame changing shapes and other things coming from those shapes, it's really awesome when I get a vivid one. I don't really know what they are, but I like them.

I see lots of interesting landscapes and often, I see faces with changing appearances. I get a lot of my ideas for my paintings from just closing my eyes for a bit.

I see black.

But, when closing my eyes to go to sleep ... I see dead people's faces. Lots of dead people. Like dead people trying to get closure for themselves. Weird. Yep, I know. It started when my grandmother passed away. I never see her face though.

If you close your eyes, and press on them to the point where it hurts just a little bit, after about ten or twenty seconds you get some really cool fractal patterns, reminiscent of the shapes one sees on '___'.

Phosphenes. I've heard it said that Ben Franklin used to have phosphene "parties." That there were such parties is beyond question, but (at the moment) I can find only a single claim that Franklin attended one.

Why does actively watching phosphenes make me fall asleep?

They can also be made at will by simply pressing your
fingertips against closed eyelids. In addition, they can also be produced
by an electrical shock. In fact, reportedly, it was high fashion in the
eighteenth century to have a phosphene party. It is noted that Benjamin
Franklin once took part in such an encounter where a circle of people
holding hands would be shocked by a high-voltage electrostatic generator, so
that phosphenes were created each time the circuit was completed or broken.

When Our Eyes Are Closed, What Do We See?
Here are some possibilities:

(1.) blackness or a grey haze,
(2.) nothing at all (not even blackness),
(3.) a field of shifting colors,
(4.) afterimages on a background field of black or gray,
(5.) patterns of color, not obviously related to external stimulus, on a field of black or gray,
(6.) visual imagery of objects, maybe like a dream or a daydream or a faint perception or a hallucination?


I myself see shifting colors if in the dark but in the light it varies.

haha! exactly what i was going to post once i read the thread title. .. people say you see light when you close your eyes because of your "third eye". .. pineal gland, what not have you! well, try to cover your pineal gland (the spot between your eyes, middle of forehead) , , , and close your eyes. . then try to just cover your eyelids with your hand. . a lot darker huh? . ..

So first off. . I see auras. . . i have seen them ever since i have done some illicit drugs with a shaman (not lsd, or shrooms, nor hallucinogenic in property). . . this is one of my favorite subjects, because it is mostly BS. . but rather tabooed on ATS. . . so i've come to gather? drugs don't alter once's perception for the better, only a clear mind does. Try breathing in VERY DEEP for 5 to ten minutes, getting all of that oxygen working through your bloodstream through your brain, then close your eyes and tell me what you see, ,, better yet, tell me what you feel?

I stared at the Sun anywhere from a month ago to six. I took a long hard look at it on a clear day for way longer than is recommended. Partially because I am an experientalist, I had also heard of n East Indian man whom the F.B.I. studied who alledgedly did not eat or drink for inhuman amounts of time, instead taking his nourishment directly from the Sun through his eyes.My eyes seem to be fine, I see my little vestigial buddy floating around cause I forgot to completely sagotize him when I was shining into existence in my mothers Universe... I mean womb..I believe they dubbed it the PMK phenomenon.

At this point just 1000's of tiny little gray dots that bounce around, but when I was younger I knew I was getting close to falling asleep when I could make out black and white geometric patterns when my eyes were closed, soon after I was out like a light.

Same thing - squiggles and shapes and also some Mandelbrot looking shapes.

Though, if I let my imagination wander I can see whatever I want to see when I have my eyes closed. Usually something like this:



Heaven on earth.

What do you see when you look at the sky? Blue? Nope, I see a assortment of colorful dots making patterns depending on your mind state. You can change these patterns as your emotions and thoughts change. Now go look at the blue or black sky.

Now look at the rest of the world and tell me you dont see the same static.

Has anyone ever heard of visualization? Most basketball players know this by heart. Sitting around, eyes closed, picturing themselves making free throws. . . one of the easiest shots, but hard if you don't have that mind set. . it sets in on yourself, over thinking things. . . visualization can be a helpful tool.. . dont just try to visualize colors and geometric shapes when you close your eyes. .. think of things grander. .. things just out of your reach that you strive to achieve.. . picture it. . want it. . achieve it. . .. hard work, focus. . . I know you all have seen those motivational pictures/posters hanging in your bosses office's or your own offices. . they're true! you want it.. .go get it!

i've had this before, with faces. Sometimes a full face can be zooming at me while changing appearance as it get closer. Seems to happen often when i'm over-tired. Pretty distrubing and almost hallucinogenic. Seems common with a lack of sleep.
