complex three-dimensional images. My examination of this phenomenon leads me to think that thefamous Dutch artist Escher had pre-hallucinations of this sort and that he drew them as art.
Reiterated images are always in rotation
This can be observed either with this method or under the influence of disattenuating molecules, suchas psilocine, LSD, etc. The rotation of the reiterated image is
, perhaps about 5 seconds pergyration. While rotating, these images can change into other reiterated rotating images. This is
to observe as now you can also start to see faint colours in these splendid and intricateimages.
Synthesis of complex three-dimensional images
This step comes after the step of the reiterative images. When you start to see such images, they are atfirst evanescent. Focusing your attention on them makes them more clear. Things now start to acquirebeautiful hues. These colours tend to change if you do nothing to keep them. This tendency is the samefor those images you can see. They change through MHVs, i.e. by following a rule of patternmodification.
Focusing your attention on known or unknown things gives different results!
Here is something interesting: if you focus your attention on, say, the face of a person you know, it willbe relatively easy to keep a
image of this face in front of your "eyes". However, if you focus yourattention on an unknown face, you will notice that it constantly changes into other faces, throughincessant MHVs jumps!
Inducing rotation of an informational object
Something which I and some children have noticed (without any interference) is that if you want to set avisual image in rotation, you
change its speed of rotation
. Rotation always jumps ina quantum manner from one observed "speed" to another. The children of some friends of mine firstnoticed this phenomenon by themselves in Tahiti (French Polynesia) in 1985, when I asked them just toobserve darkness!The most important thing in order to achieve conscious (="lucid") dream is to learn, like in meditation,how to
your attention on
(imaginary hallucinatory-like visual images, forinstance) or on after-images.You can do this 3 different ways:1.
Focusing your attention directly on informational objects with your eyes closed.2.
Focusing your attention first on an external object, like the flame of a candle, then closing youreyes and focusing on the external object's after-image.3.
For instance, you can focus your attention on the light of a candle for about 1 or 2 minutes, thenclose your eyes and try to keep the after-image of the candlelight as long as possible into yourconsciousness. While doing this concentrate and observe the regular variations of colours of thisimage until its extinction. Write the sequence of colour variation.4.
Using a flashlight to produce an observable after-image.
