i thought everyone except me literally sees the things they imagine?I think I visualise quite strongly. Sometimes with eyes closed I feel i can literally see things I imagine, but I think a lot of people get that. I have astigmatism in one eye and I often think how things like that shape your perceptions of the world beyond just forming an image of the immediate environment
For me it tends to be very plastic, can flow all over the shop. Keeping images static feels virtually impossible, though I did try it for quite a long time following Crowley's masochistic yoga instructions. Letting images arise spontaneously is a lot easier and depends how physically relaxed I am. With one end of the continuum being fully relaxed/body shuts down/dreams start.i thought everyone except me literally sees the things they imagine?
i have had it. i've had, on a small number of occassions, impossibly high-resolution images i could fly around with a camera droneIt's a weird area mental imagery. It's very difficult to describe an image in the minds eye, the 'voluntary' stuff is usually very fleeting and incomplete but definitely has enough qualities to do the symbolic work required to evoke its thingness. Then there's th involuntary hypnagogic stuff that can appear from noise, patterns but faces and places too. do you get that luka?
last one i had was a city by a river and i really want it to be a real city i might visit one day but im not sure if it was or notIt's only happened three or four times in my life (as far as I remember) but they all involved flight and looking around at cities and buildings in perfect detail. I got the music thing too, impossible melodies.
