    I am so disappointed for not noticing this or making a bigger deal out of it sooner but at first I was just mildly intrigued, and now I'm ecstatic. Ok so for the past several months now I've been hallucinating flashes of light and seeing sparks of light all around me which normally would just be an odd goings on but since my favorite scientist/inventor is Nikola Tesla : D....

    So anyway I'm going crazy but so far it's a very lucid and aware kind of crazy and I'm hoping modern discoveries can shed some light on why I'm hallucinating light and what the chances are of it being a good thing.

    Little more info, the first time for me I had a 9v battery strapped to my head, first time for her it was triggered by stress while passing through the halls of Harvard trying to choose between Harvard and Yale.

    The pixels are constricted nerve pathways. Happens when you hit something, don't get enough blood, or fall on the ground.

    This may be due to sudden changes in blood pressure, you might want to consult a doctor with this. It might be the flagship for something worse, like a brain tumor, or a heart or vacular condition.
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    If you have ever taken drugs like LSD it could be a flashback.

    Are you under stress and not getting enough sleep?

    Have you been inside a lot, and not been in contact with direct sunlight? I thought maybe you, could be just reacting to bright light.


    I THINK YOU SHOULD SEE A DOCTOR, TO MAKE SURE IT IS NOT A MEDICAL EYES TO BRAIN PROBLEM, OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.



    But its interesting how you so freely, and calmly accept this. What if this is (kinda) a branch off of some natural animal instinct. Or your brain sees light in certain situations? Like in a movie were someones dreams come true, and there is a bright light around that area.

    It just seems I see things like you discribe in movies, I think (maybe) it happened in that movie "HAPPY GILMORE." Did a dream just come true for you?

    You talk about bright light, some times when I am outside during the day, and the sun is very bright, I stop what I am doing, and stand in the direction of the sun, I close my eyes and look at the sun (with my eyes closed), I then move my head around, like to stretch my neck, and its like I get a bearing on the sun. Its like I need to know exactly were the sun is, or I feel the need to look at that place.

    Or maybe I sometimes do this b/c I am outside working and I must avoid the sun because you cant look directly at it, and I get tired and mad for not being able to look in that direction, so I close my eyes and do it.

    I have wondered before, do I do this because I am odd, or is it some animal instinct? At this moment I am thinking it may be a worthless genetic defect, what benifit could this behavior have?


    I would do the following for you, but I dont have the time.

    Goto the "mayo clinic symptoms checker" or some website like WebMD and type in your symptoms. This could be a medical problem doctors know about.



    Also If you are young, it could be because of that, when I was young I had friends experience strange things like this.

    And I dont feel that you are using drugs like LSD or pot, but if you are, I would stop the LSD and slow down on the pot.



    Like I said see a Medical Doctor to make sure its not something doctors know about. Doctors may know about this.

    Chad.



    I just read the post above this one, and i think you should see a doctor pronto, ASAP, very soon. With todays medical technology they can cure many things, but you have to catch them early to do it.

    SEE A DOCTOR...........................

    Chances are the doctor will say your o.k. and then we can talk about what it really is, but I hope you ask a doctor first.
    Chad.

    here are some medical links about seeing bright light, (it is actually a common medical symptom/ problem),






    What Are The Causes Of Flashing Lights In The Left Eye Followed By A Headache? | LIVESTRONG.COM



    What Causes Light Flashes in the Eye? | eHow.com




    Why Do I See Flashing Lights? - MSN Health & Fitness - Vision




    The Facts About Eye Floaters and Flashes - Vision Center - Everyday Health



    I think the last, or last 2 links may be the best.

    Chances are its nothing serous but you should see a doctor soon.

    I have watched astronauts talk about seeing radiation pass through their eyes and coming out of the backs of their heads, I think that was 350miles up and no where near the Tanalum belt. Where do you live and what is near you of any EMforce significance?

    Consult a doctor! Now. As suggested by Chad this could be a serious condition - it probably isn't, but why take the chance?

    Yerrrrr go see the doctor who will pat you on the back and say everythings ok, or take these pills. He wont have enough time to discuss external matters with you so his knowledge is limited to textbooks. If there is no cure for what you have then what else can he do. Is there any other cases of what you have going on in your area? ask around?

    Andy. My first impression is that this may be either a migraine type of condition or a sign of eye trouble or related to blood pressure causing either of these (along with a whole heap of not-so-nice possibilities).

    A doctor can at least check out and hopefully rule out the nastier options. And there may be nothing to worry about.

    There probably is nothing to worry about - but better safe than sorry.
