Phantom eye patients 'see' with missing eye

Recommended Posts

UM-Bot

People who have lost an eye to illness sometimes report strange visual sensations and phantom images.

Amputees have been sometimes known to feel tingling sensations from a missing arm or leg, a phenomenon known as 'phantom limb', but there exists another far more peculiar affliction where patients with only one eye have reported seeing visions in the eye that's no longer there.

My wife used to have panic attacks that would petrify her and she would grab my hand and freeze up. She kept claiming that it felt like something was "over there" or wherever. She couldn't see whatever it was but she could feel it. I thought at first that she was being attacked by spirits but then eventually decided she must have some kind of chemical imbalance or something. She asked me to pray so I did, mostly under my breath asking God to heal her because I thought it was all in her mind.

After I prayed I closed my eyes and rested my head on the pillow while I held her. As soon as my head hit the pillow it was like I was looking upward even though my eyes were closed. I saw a small black cloud moving over from me to her.

I opened my eyes and saw nothing there but right when I knew the cloud would have passed over her I saw her jerk in fear.

I asked her what happened, if she saw anything. She said it was like a black cloud had come over her. O_O

I knew it wasn't in her head anymore. I got up and we did some serious praying this time. I anointed our doors with oil and we commanded all demonic spirits to leave in the name of Jesus. That was the last panic attack she ever had in that apartment.

She's had very mild ones since then but nothing like she used to. She said she had them for as long as she could remember but they're gone now.

The "phantom image" I saw with my eyes closed was real.

Someone who sees things (in a psychic way) once told me that bad spells or intentions can be seen over people with thier appearance resembling a black cloud.

Your brain remembers stuff so I'm guessing that the ghosts that the missing eye is seeing is nothing more than replaying from memory. Much like LSD users get flashbacks or Vietnam vets get PTSD and horrible events replay in their heads.

My late mother was quite deaf. When she went to bed, she used to hear a man sing. But there was no man. I seem to recall that we learned that other deaf people had similar experiences, and that it was part of the brain concocting its own story because it wasn't used any more and was idling. So such a part of the brain has an awareness and produces its own sensations as a form of maintenance. Perchance dreams serve this purpose partly as well?

When they are 'seeing' something without an eye , wouldn't it be the brain still trying to process the information , just because the camera has gone , the processing unit is still there

I think it's part of getting used to "it". I mean it's like when you have your tooth removed, how many times in a day do you run your tongue across it? After days or weeks, your tongue stops wondering across it because you have already gotten used to it. I think it's the same. When someone loses an eye, only the organ has been damaged, not the things it saw before. So it keeps on replaying memories and images until you get used to it.

I am a total anosmic, having lost my sense of smell some 20 years ago. Sometimes however, I 'remember' a smell, and it can stay with me for days. Phantom smells are commonly reported by anosmia sufferers.

It's as if without sensory input from the affected organ the brain fills in the gaps, as it were, with recalled information.

I believe this may be what is happening here.
