Complete blackness.

But I have never experienced this.
When I close my eyes (even at daytime, or with my eyes open if it's a bit darker), I ALWAYS see dots, colors and shapes.

I don't recall seeing complete blackness in my entire life.
While I'm sure no one can explain this, I was just wondering if anyone is like this out there too?


I'm not sure it's what you mean, but if you are talking about something I've heard called 'the void' I have experienced this. The moving colours are a mix of things I believe, the ones you see when first closing your eyes are usually essentially static that is caused by random firing of neurons in your eyes. Later they are basically a form of HI. I too get this. The 'void' experience was one that I encountered when trying WILD once. I was in an extremely relaxed state and suddenly I felt disconnected from my body, life and everything. It was as if I was floating in nothingness alone. The blackness I saw then was blacker than even when eyes are closed and covered in a dark room.

I personally found the experience extremely relaxing and would love to repeat it. I have spoken to others though who found it to be disturbing and felt incredibly lonely.

I see blue, cloudy, moving shapes, which get stronger if i watch them for a while. We had a discussion about this in the family, and it turned out that we all see different colours: my brother sees red clouds, my mother green, and somebody i asked on IRC sees yellowish green.

I see clouds only when I'm not drowsy. When I'm even a little bit drowsy I see clear images, which stay more and more in front of my eyes as I get closer to sleep.

I'll take the opportunity to ask—this has always bugged me a little. When you get low blood pressure and your vision fades, do you also see a bee hive–like pattern?

When I close my eyes, I see colorful tracers, and things that look like ink splotches everywhere. Depending on my mood, I can sometimes see actual objects of varying detail.

Things really get crazy when I'm having a panic attack, when I get derealization, when I'm very tired, or if i'm incredibly sad/depressed.

Hmm, I don't.
I'm pretty sure everyone sees different things tho.
Some may see colorful circles, for example.

I don't get. You should see at least some colored circles on a dark background (or otherwise). At least something. I can't imagine closing my eyes and seeing pure blackness.

Like I said earlier, I see black also. It's not that we "should" see something. That seems like a stereotype. It's like, I tell you all to imagine the sky your sky is gonna all be different colours. Some people can't even imagine -just- the sky, some can't imagine the sky at all. I don't ever see anything, it's even hard to force myself to imagine something. It just doesn't work... There's nothing wrong or abnormal about it. It's just how some of us are.

i feel like some will say they don't see it, but that's because they're not looking in the right way

There's no right or wrong way to look. I have seen nothing my whole life. I really don't think it's a matter of "looking right"

I see red, blue, and green blotches of color. When I'm stressed I see flashing lights, and when I'm really angry, I see only red.
