Looking at shiny objects ooooo pretty
You may all think that I am insane after I write this, but after you try the following, maybe you will not:

Bring a shine on a shiny object up close to your eye and wait for the focus to hit the "sweet spot" You should see (as I think I may be seeing) microscopic images of the object.

At first I just thought it was floaty eye stuff, but it seems to be separate from that. I see rainbow colors and line patterns and such. It looks different for different objects, Today I looked at the sunshine on a handful of fresh powdery snow and it was beautiful!

I've also had success looking at the shines on my teacup rim while sitting near a sunny window.

Does anyone know if this is a real phenomenon? Anyone try this?

I want to try this with slimy swamp water and see if I am seeing tiny microbes etc. Maybe I am seeing even smaller things! I don't know.

I am in the land of non shiny stuff at the moment. It is now in my brain and I will probably try it next time I come across a shine.

I've noticed this when I am wearing shiny or multi-hued nail polish ohyeah I focus, and when I do I see what I compare it to as what a nebula might look like in space. All sorts of tendrils and "threads" branching out and melting into one another in the light.

So will the glasses. chuckle

I think my eyes are already screwed from staring at a computer screen too much.

Its true though, I suppose this could damage eyes. Only try this with artificial light. leave the crazy snow experiments to me.

I am actually being serious. While looking close up at shines, I see what appear to be microscopic images.

My theory (could be very wrong) is that these shines are caused by light reflections off the surface of the object (obviously). At the specific shine points, there is a greater "concentration" of light, based on your relative angle/focal point. From this it follows that "concentrated" light will reflect "concentrated" images onto your retina.

If you are at a close enough distance, why would you not be able to interpret these reflections onto your retina as a focused image? the light coming from the shines could be reflecting in a similar way to every day naked eye images because they are at a special angle.

Well if this is the case, seeing light fractal patterns is way more awsome than naked eye microscopy!
