What Nabby is describing is called retinal fatique, prolonged staring at an 
object without the eyes moving exhausts the chemistry in the retina responsible 
for the detection of light. 


Exactly. But they can't feel all self-important and "special" if they tell 
people that they experienced plain old everyday retinal fatigue, so they dress 
it up with fancy Woo Woo language the way that Jim and Nabby just did.


If when this happens and you look away at a light surface, you see a negative 
image, colours reversed that persists for a while (after image) while the 
chemistry refreshes. The eyes also do not remain completely still but naturally 
saccade, which partially helps to prevent retinal fatigue when one is not 
deliberately staring at something, which reduces but does not eliminate the 
saccade. Because of the scacade, the after image formed by staring does not 
perfectly line up with the object which can account for edge effects around the 
object viewed.

This is how people see "auras," too.

I suppose this could be mistaken for some kind of 'spiritual' experience by the 
uninitiated, but it is just 'looking at something'. Spiritual experiences are 
just artefacts of the nervous system releasing prior conditioned responses and 
a person feels, for a while, clearer, freer etc., but eventually realises or 
rather actually accommodates to the new clearer, freer experience which then 
just seems normal, everyday. Eventually a realisation comes that the only thing 
that exists is normal everyday experience, minus certain ideas about what 
normal everyday experience is. You just live it, you do not think about what it 
is supposed to be.

Bu...bu...bu...but you can't pretend to be SPECIAL if you characterize what you 
see as "normal everyday experience." That would be...uh...normal, and everyday, 
and people like Jim and Nabby could NEVER admit to being that. What they claim 
to "see" has to be as SPECIAL as they claim to "be," donchaknow?   :-)

Have you considered just having your vision checked?  :-)

You don't even have to look very deeply. Looking at a person for some short 
time will make him disappear leaving a light, often golden or blue. In my 
experience the more evolved a person the quicker he disolves and the more 
interesting the light he leaves behind. And like you say it can be anything, 
only it takes a little longer for an ordinary object than humans to resolve.
