Triangular stars

“Gently close your eyes and feel your phosphenes, when none is there to feel you.”  Naren Yousuf

I’m in my mental laboratory creating magic. You know when you close and rub your eyes and you see beautiful patterns and colours that morph; that is what I have tried to emulate.

What causes these patterns? Phosphenes are the moving visual sensations of stars and patterns we see when we close our eyes. They are thought to be caused by the inherent electrical charges the retina produces even when it is in its “resting state” and not taking in a ton of information and light like it does when our eyes are open.

I  just love the multiple patterns and colours phosphenes produce, with a a little help from our imaginations .
