    Right. Your eyes are magic and can see the air. That's a much more reasonable explanation than that you have a common ocular condition.

    (I am astonished at how difficult it is to get a Googled pic of a grainy photo...

    If I try carefully to concentrate on my vision, this is what I see (lousy pic but it'll suit my purpose):

    The world seems to be made up, not of solid colours, but of colour "noise" - it's made up of specks of colour near the limit of resolution, but still resolvable.

    I don't see it all the time; I have to concentrate on a featureless area - maybe the black deck of my laptop or maybe the sky.

    I think everyone sees this, and I think we fall into three groups:
    1] Those who have never become aware of it
    2] Those who are aware of it, but see it as just an artifact of vision
    3] Those who are freaked out by it, thinking no one else can see what they see.

    I think it is an artifact of the retina and of the brain. Our vision is made of discrete elements after all.

    Indeed. But, like many visual artifacts, that does not necessarily preclude our ability to spot it under the right circumstances.

    Not that is of any importance, but I ran across this old post and did a quick look-up. Of course it seems really unlikely, however something stirred my memory.

    I know exactly what you're talking about. I found myself daydreaming and looking at the clear blue sky one day and found I could see silvery points of light dancing around i the sky. I decided I was seeing cosmic rays that are bombarding our planet all the time. That's the only explanation I can give. I think it's cool.

    You aren't seeing cosmic rays. Try reading the thread from the start.

    Oh, and welcome back. Long time no see.
