In the first stage of trance, whether the eyes are open or closed, and even in the kind of altered state that people with migraine headache experience, most people say they see patterns of light.
The technical term is “ENTOPTICS” from the Greek meaning “WITH VISION” ,Entoptics occur in a variety of specific forms such as sets of parallel lines, grids, zigzags and wavy thin meandering lines, spirals swarms of dots and flecks, circles or spotlights and nested U-shapes. They shimmer and move, change color ,size and intensity, and continue into the second stage of trance where they may become integrated with animals or people.
Classic entoptic forms form South Africa are very similar to what might be found elsewhere on the planet.
The brain is hardwired to see these images during trance, no matter where you come from , no matter who you are. (Craig Foster)
