Over the past few months in bed I’ve been been able to see objects in my room with my eyes shut tight. I thought I was going insane, I can move my hands about and see them! It’s unbelievable. I started to see color forming last night so I really need to know what this is. Can anyone help?

This has happened to me before, but tonight’s experience was the most unusual and vivid I have ever had. I was trying to relax in bed with my eye mask on, which completely blacks out my vision. You can’t see through it at all, and my room was completely dark. Anyway, I couldn’t get comfortable, so I sat up a bit and began adjusting my pillows and blankets. I could see the pillows and I could see my hands moving around in front of me, which was at first unremarkable, until I realized I was still wearing my eye mask and I shouldn’t be able to see anything at all. Now usually I can only see my hands and my body in these states, sort of like dimly lit shadows outlined by an aura. However, in this case, I could also see my pillows AND the objects in my room. The pillows were particularly interesting to me, because the looked just like a pillow would look in a room as dark as mine, with just enough light to see their surface and shape. Even while moving them around, I could see them clearly. I tested this out by taking my mask on an off and comparing the two “types” of vision. No difference except with my eyes open I can see the actual light and shadow in my room, instead of the dimly lit shapes with my eyes closed. Very weird. The last thing that made this experience unusual was that my eyes were actually OPEN when I noticed the phenomena, but were completely blacked out by the eye mask. It was as if I wasn’t wearing the mask at all! I could also see just as well with my eyes shut. Strange, huh?
