Such stuff as dreams are made on

Such stuff as dreams are made on

Now things got even more extraordinary. I began to see very vivid hallucinations.

I’ll try to describe them in another post: for now I’ll just show you some I was able to sketch before they flew away.


I saw them all so often I gave them names, as follows:

A the Hexagons

B me jumping into a vortex

C the Pennants

D the Gingerbread Man

E the Bubbles

F triangles

G the Chequered Tablecloth

H the Scroll

I Benzene Rings

J  Herrings and Undulations

K the Hand

And this was just the start, they morphed, as I’ll try to describer in the next post.


About partialinsight

One evening I had a stroke. Half my sight vanished overnight. Adapting made me grasp how amazing the visual system and brain are. It also taught me to understand disability completely differently and I'm grateful for the lesson.

  1. Ah! I have just read a book called Hallucinations by Oliver Sachs and he talks about just this experience when vision is incomplete or missing. There is even a name for it (which I can’t remember!)
