Tired of bumping your head into the search engines?
Yes, today is your good day. I am answering all the fuzzy weird things.
The popular term for floaters on Internet is ‘bacterial thingy’. The random floating objects that you almost assumed as imaginary friends but never really questioned their existence and even if you did, you were disappointed.
Hallelujah! here comes the Gabriel.
Doctors in revolutionary research of 1956, ( 2 long years and 3 and a half months) found out that these very mystical creatures that lived inside human eye, somehow, control the visions of dimension-limit of human kind.
Kidding. Sorry. Gabriel just got into me. Get away.
In other words, (Well seriously) the floater are the depositions inside your eyes that can be more or less, compared to the dust particles that get struck upon your camera’s lens. These are inside these fluid membrane of your eye, supposedly called vitreous humor , no wonder I am making jokes out of it.
And hey! On a second thought, it is giving me a helpless impression that this membrane would have been named after all this affair. What do you think?
P.S. If these things are getting darker and more bizarre in your vision, do consult a an optician! Although the researches say it happens due to old age BUT Their are actually cures for such things. Poor Floater. I hope they won’t get extinct.
These are the closed-eye visions of various colors which keep on taking shapes and forms inside your head.
I know. I know what you mean. But let’s say sub-categories does not always reciprocate the titles. So what?
Disclaimer: This is not the exact picture for the phenomenon. It varies. It varies A LOT.
And no, it is not about drugs.
I don’t know what Wikipedia says or believe, I’ve experienced it and I have never been to space. For Wiki says it is for the astronauts or people who usually remain confined to dark (like prisoners, hence the name). Well Wikipedia, FYI, is not very trust-able source (Neither am I) but yes I can swear upon the whole internet that it is, but a very common phenomena.
Have you been bored lately and decided to organize a cinematic screening inside your mind palace and then, have realized that it is completely, sheerly, utterly awesome. But as you are curious about this thing, you fall asleep and forget it and carry on your general routine the other day like whatever or may be… start writing poetry about it? (No? Is it just me?)
Coming back, this ‘screening’ is in the other words, sets of various vibrant colors which we are somehow able to see, without any contact with direct source of light and favorably, in the darkness. (Wiki says Yeah!) And as far as my own experience is concerned, I usually experience it during my Yoga classes (meditation) and my teacher (She is a history major grandma) told me that the colors are always symbolic in a way or the other. For example if the green color is reoccurring in your head, that means, your body is not at its equilibrium and is at chance of falling ill.
You close your eyes and see these wonderful objects or geometrical images, illuminating your blacked out- close eyes and the very formation inside your head began to appear so crisp that you wondered and more appropriately, muse (somebody ought to promote the blog) what is with me accessing the other dimensions?
Sorry for breaking your bubble in case you thought you were the only one. I know those ‘feels’.
But it ain’t a dimension, not even an outer source of light, just some hard-core neurons. These master magicians, the neurons are these awesome sensory things that help your nervous system remain intact and as it turns out the creator of these pictures, stimuli-zed by movements like rubbing one’s own eyes– so hard.
I thought these were the reminders saying ‘Yes, you are the one’. Like super-power one, the favorite-child one and the grand–‘The destined one’. Well, well, well.
P.S. This also occurs when you are on psychotic drugs or in case you banged your head somewhere for e.g. let’s say a tap–B00m– and then all you see is stars.
“Am I dreaming? Hff. Pinch me?”
I believe you might have used this more frequently in real life than your dream-life.
Lucid dreaming is an amazing (and officially my favorite out of the five) phenomenon when you can recognize that you are dreaming and somehow, are able to control them. And you are absolutely not awake.
Plus the dream scenario becomes more real, say HD, and more dazzling than it already is. And besides that, you can even remember the lucid dreams better than your other dreams.
Why it is important?
My theory: Research says dreams reflect back your desires or fears. Seeing your desires fulfilled in your dreams, your brain actually feels that they are fulfilled. But I am not sure how much this would apply to Lucid dreaming given that we are the ones directing our brain towards fulfilling our desires in this imaginary world that you will built.
Therefore, I think this depends upon the memory-retention and varies from individual to individual. Either you can remember you caused it or you can just believe that it just happened naturally. It also depends upon your personal-level of acceptance.
I hope your brain doesn’t hurts.
Inception starrer Leonardo Dicaprio (Did you know he was named after Leonardo Da Vinci ) is also about Lucid dreaming.Well it is about a lot of other things too, like getting into someone’s dream and controlling it. I mean C’mmon man what a concept! I repeat, what a concept!
But don’t get all-good-eyes for Lucid dreaming. It comes with itchy but bearable side-effects such as headache, dizziness, some sort of reluctance for retaining memory and a lot of sleeplessness. (My own experience. I won’t certify it; maybe you should look it up.) I mean fooling your brain doesn’t come in handy. Therefore, I would advise you to try it only during the vacations. That way, you can sleep all you want.
Happy dreaming. It might lead you to an inward journey. (Tip: Practice meditation for more clarity)
Most closely experienced by people who had out of body or near death experiences.
People say it is the light of healing source, of elements that contains god. Not the one, prescribed in the scriptures, but the one which is sheer energy. Application of life.
However, as I would start by stating my own experience, I would say the white light is very mischievous. I remember I opened my eyes at the middle of the night because I felt I saw a bright piercing light. I thought, somebody might have switched on the light of my room but as I woke up, this was, I ASSURE YOU, not the case. Nobody was up in the room. Nobody. (Considering this to add this in supernatural section; wait for a whole new separate post on NDEs.)
The light wasn’t disturbing but it created a stir inside my being, say goosebumps, because I tried to chase it again and again up in the center of my forehead but it hardly returned back.
Now let me state the reasons. To me, it is healing source and symbol of life beyond death but in case you want to believe in the scientific explanations. (People have also claimed to see it during meditation and have termed it as the activation of a chakra; wheels of balance in our body, related to Yogic transformation and healing) The scientists believe that the white light is result of dying brain cells (preferably in NDEs) that accelerates the process of flashing of past memories and ending into a bright white light.
LIKE THE BIG BANG! (the small particles colliding and breaking into an explosion; the ordinary memories colliding to complete a being called soul, the white light) So the question remains, are we just blocks of memories or something more?
