When I close my eyes, I see inkblots of light and shadows, and like a Rorschach, I make out tigers, angels, demons, and my favorite, I swear I see Jesus Christ giving me a hug. I know. Sounds so stupid, but it’s what I see, so Freudianalyze that. I’m just impressed I don’t see penises since I see those in the clouds all the time, another kind of Rorschach.
Yes. I talked about Jesus and Penises in the same paragraph.
We often think the blind man is missing out on life, but what has our sight taken from us? What are we missing?
I often dream I’m fighting beings that are trying to hurt me, and I’m blind. It’s a recurring dream. While sometimes I hate it because I’m so used to fighting things I can see, I know I’m blind because my battles lately have been against things I can’t see, and I feel like Van Damme at the end of Blood Sport where you feel the opponent on a spiritual level, and it’s like the next level: an experience I could never explain in a way you’d visualize, kind of like trying to explain the color red to a blind man.
But really all sight is light. Our eyes are like a camera. It allows so much light as it passes through lenses and produces a picture upside down and then sends the info to the brain with electrical impulses where our brain then sees an image right side up.
So we are always looking at the world upside down. If we looked at it right side up, it would be upside down.
You’ll want to smoke some weed before thinking about that one.
When we close our eyes, we are still refracting light and stuff, like that doesn’t stop. Hence, why I see little Rorschach’s in my brain. And the perception I get is all psychological and spiritual in nature.
I see what I want to see.
Spiritually speaking, they say we are objects of the light. Some studies show that our bodies emit light that we can’t see with our naked eyes, and the more positive our emotions, the brighter the light. Even better, the light interacts with the light from other people. This is probably why Negative Susie can ruin your day.
It makes you wonder how much of the light we don’t see.
But the question is, when our eyes are open, are we really seeing? It’s just light and shadows, and electrical impulses. It’s not really what I’d call seeing. It’s perception and reflection. Very subjective stuff. You would think the act of seeing is to see it for what it is, but that’s not the case no matter how we use the verb, “To See.”
Perception and Reflection.
Like looking in a mirror, you see your reflection, and then you see what you want to see. For many of us women, we see ourselves as too fat, or too skinny, or too old, or too young. For men, they see a stud. Like that’s true at all. They flex their muscles and envision Hercules when really it’s more like Goofy working out.
I have wrinkles that go down from my eyes along side my nose and I think it looks like a cat nose, and I hate it. It makes my face look so off. Nobody else sees these wrinkles at all. Just me.
I see what I want to see…
And the camera hid a lot of what was there.
Our eyes hide a lot of what is there.
So even with our eyes wide open, we aren’t really seeing.
We have to close our eyes to learn how to see.
