thank you for all of your responses. perhaps i'm being misunderstood, so please allow me to reiterate.
i did a lot of research prior to creating this thread and, yes, i happened upon the concept of floaters in the process. i did considerable reseach
into this topic as well, to make sure this isn't what i am experiencing. i even did a google image search and found many pictures of what floaters
look like. they are NOT EVEN CLOSE to what i am experiencing. there are no floating spots/dots/specks, no strings, no "webs," no flashes of light,
no other floater-y things, and certainly nothing that even remotely resembles any of the images i found or the descriptions i read. you see, if i
thought that floaters were a possible culprit, my question would have been answered a long time ago through my own research, and i wouldn't have had
to bother with creating this thread and wasting anyone's time. but it's NOT floaters. that's the crazy part! so in summation, no floaters.
furthermore, they are not closed-eye visualizations. i also know what those are, as does everyone - they are the weird different-colored shapes and
blobs and forms that you see with your eyes closed, especially at night when you're in bed with the heebie-jeebies. and it's not that either. i
haven't found anything, in my research, that sounds like what i'm observing.
what i am experiencing, i have seen many times before, as has everyone. but the difference is that the situation that normally causes what i am seeing
is not present. so it doesn't make sense. what i am experiencing looks JUST like someone is waving something in front of my face with my eyes closed.
i see the SHADOW of movement in front of my face; it looks no different from any other time i've had my eyes closed and something has moved past my
face. if anyone has ever had their eyes closed in a well-lit room and someone walks past right in front of them, they see that something in front of
them moved because there is a sort of shadowy blur that they see behind their eyelids. does ANYONE know what i'm talking about? go outside, close
your eyes and face the sun, and wave your hand in front of your face from one side to the other. you know that dark shadow you see moving from one
side of your vision field to the other, behind your eyelids? THAT is what i am seeing. however, when i open my eyes, there is nothing there. nothing
was moving in front of my face. yet there was something casting that shadow. and it was nothing like floaters or closed-eye visualizations.
and besides, as the person above me said, the occurrence of floaters or closed-eye visualizations does not at all explain the fact that this
phenomenon is only observed in one room of one apartment.
