seeing light in the dark rods and cones
i am catching glimpses of the light spectrum in between sleep states. eyes are completely closed and I am barely awake. the atoms are in vision closely bound together. they are circular in nature. tightly woven in their place. from the corners of my eye i see light splashes. far right corner i see pulses of light going toward the atoms in the center. splash of yellow coming from the right corner of my eye.
flash of blue light coming from my left eye. the light is "fast." When they say "at the speed of light" now I understand as it is not measurable in human terms.
less than a second. less than a millisecond.
Were my eyes capable of seeing the light spectrum in the dark?
