      My body feels fine, I’ve had visual snow for all my life.
      One of the random flashes of light led me to the ashes of a person’s remains hidden in a wall one time.
      Some anon had a thread about visual snow and some middle eastern mythology but the thread was dead when I tried to post in it later.

    Sometimes when I'm walking outside it seems as if all the clouds, no matter what direction I turn in, are moving away from me.

    I don't understand how the wind could be doing that unless there are different strata going in different directions with similar clouds. But then wouldn't I be able to see them crossing over each other?

    Floaters are bits of gunk that collected in the fluid in your eye
    The small moving light points are white blood cells casting a shadow on the back of your eye
    The visual snow is related to tinnitus, it's sometimes causes by seizures, it's a misfiring of nerves or something like that

      Floaters: the squiggly, opaque floaters are fungus, yeast or possibly parasites. The black dot floater is a white blood cell hunting foreign invaders down.
      Tinnitus: communication you can't fully perceive due to the limitations of human hearing.
      Visual snow: beginnings of piercing the veil. Breaking on through the other side if you will.

    I experience it under certain light conditions
    I think it may be related to how copper and other microscopic metals can accumulate in your eye as it will cause your eye to also reflect light out of it differently to the point some conditions make people have "cat eyes" that light up under the right lighting

    Simply the "impossibility" (who knows whether it can go away) for one who has observed an additional layer to the composition of their visual perception to not notice this additional layer.

    What you see you cannot unsee. I'm sure you could find people who have not done hallucinogens who experience similar phenomenon to those who have HPPD.

        Not to say that I KNOW this but:
        You did. Your BRAIN never processed it however. Not YOU the person who is so observant, but the BRAIN which is an input processing machine. The acid caused a change in the input processing, and you 100% recorded that new processing, and so now you cannot help but notice a layer which all your life was discarded as useless noise.

            You're not understanding what I'm saying. You are correct that you never saw shit like that. The snow is an inherent aspect of the visual processing pipeline, and one that is normally filtered out. It was not something that was EVER visible to you. But it was THERE (not in your perceptible vision), in the neural processing chain, discarded before it could ever be comprehended by any part of your conscious brain.

        Oh shit, that's a real thing? I thought it was just sleep deprivation. I've seen that a few times when I stay up to 4am+ with lights on. I figured it was some sort of spirit or amygdala overactivation.
        I see closed eye visuals easily and I can see my floaters if I stare at a flat coloured surface for a few seconds.

          It's sleep deprivation but can be semi permanent if you have chronic insomnia.
          I sleep waaay to little, and I get a lot of these. Spots moving on around, shadows warping and sliders/drifting objects seems to the most common one, plus visual snow.
          Could be the copious amounts of drugs I've consumed throughout my 20s though.
          If my blood pressure I can see a sort of vibration in my eye.
          I get after-images that I'm sure is from phenetylamines or empathogen drugs,

          Also get the grey/rainbow warping field when I close my eyes, but I think that's normal.

            Visual snow isn’t a problem with your eyes but a problem with your brain and the way the brain recieves information from your eyes. It’s more common with mental illnesses that can change your perception of things like schizophrenia, PTSD, BPD, etc

            Whatever anon, you've moved from saying its the eyes being fricked up, to it being somewhat normal, to now calling me crazy for even asking. I think I have discovered the reason no one talks about this.

            It's weird at one point I thought it was normal because it's normal in my family and a few online communities I'm in, but lots of "neurdivergents" or people related to them. But when I asked some people in my class at school if they thought the static was normal everyone in the room looked at me like I was crazy so not normal.

            I've had it since I was a kid. I didn't even realize it till I mentioned the "vortex" in the sky and nobody else knew what I was talking about. I'll list some of the things I experience.

            1. When the sky is bright blue, the clear parts of the sky appear to have a "pulsing vortex" with an opaque black color, that's the best way I describe it. If I stare at one spot it becomes most of my field of view.

            2. Blackness (in low light or no light) appears like a multi color muted version of tv static. I don't see pure blackness.

            3. Colors appear extremely saturated.

            4. This is a strange one, don't know if it's hppd, but, if I rub my hands down my face with my eyes closed, I immediately feel very high. I feel like i'm on X or painkillers and my hands and fingers feel like liquid mercury, if I repeat it the feeling gets stronger and my hairs stand up and I get goosebumps. I always forget this happens, but I feel like if I did this for a few minutes i'd have a full blown dmt like experience.

            5. When I close my eyes I see 5 or 10% of a dxm closed eye visual (when you see an entire lifelike scene), it's hard to describe if you haven't seen it. It's like when the visual is just starting to manifest and you're waiting for "the lights to turn on".

            That's about it, I forgot about it till I saw this thread. I think it was caused from one time I tried benadryl, I had tried it a few times previously at 12 or 14 pills and nothing really happened. On this day I took 7 and ended up being brought home by the cops after walking halfway across the city (big city). I was completely delirious, the next day I was talking to some counselors, i don't remember why, but I remember just staring at the wall and seeing the static, and it just never went away. I don't remember what it was like before, but I honestly don't mind it. I feel like I can appreciate art because of the colors being so saturated.

            Yeah I have a lot of these to from "VSS". Including the visuals. It's helps me sleep to watch tho. Ive ha dit as long as I can remember. But could've been from some fever or something because I had a few as a kid that just made the room feel like it was spinning and like I was really small and stuff.

            I always thought this is how everyone sees things until recently

            Same. And there is definitely a genetic element and probably a correlation to certain mental conditions even after hearing VSS was a thing I thought it was normal and that most people just never thought to check until I asked some normies and they didn't suddenly see black static like I thought would happen

      The morphing colors and that you never see pure black when closing your eyes, but a dark grayish thing with shifting weak coloration is because your brain is trying to process visual input that doesn't exist. Some doctor said that all people have this to a degree, you can't really turn it off.

    Hallucination Persistent Perception Disorder is a side effect of prolonged overexposure to either hallucinogenic compounds and/or sleep deprivation hallucinations. i only know this from first hand experience and surface research, of course.
    I must first express that i DO NOT it in any way recommend anything that i experienced. it is reckless and unsafe to your self and others.

    around a decade ago, i took to eating what started as about a half a hit of lsd blotter a day gradually to eating multiple hits per day. i had sheets to start, this occured over the course of 2.5 to 3 months. by the end of it there was not point in my day that i was not experiencing either or both of visual and auditory hallucinations. when i finally kickked the acid for a while there lingered this sort of trippy super prolonged afterglow, in which something liken to "flashbacks" occurs. for me, i was stationary, staring at a framed piece of art or something. a painting. as i kept my focus on the painting for more than about 5 whole seconds, the painting and frame would start to drift slowly across the wall and wouldnt stop until i refocused m eyes. kinda like a flaoter

      That's a moronic way of taking acid considering immediate tolerance buildup.
      If you were paying any attention you would've noticed that the movements of vision match your intestines. That's what hppd is, data of gastrointestinal nerves reaching consciousness, yet it can't translate them so enjoy your visual snow/migraines/tinnitus or whatever it presents as.
      Once you internally make a connection between these being your digestion, you develop a new sense and the hppd goes away. You also get some minor control over your digestion.

          It is. The sense is super weird as it manifests as a sense of space around your head, though it can be at other places too because you're not really supposed to have it. It's basically what you feel when you focus on your third eye or try to make an 'energy ball' in your hand. It also manifests as sound, but it's hard to explain it. You can hear the intestines sometimes when you clench your jaw. I suppose the mechanism behind that has to be that the act of chewing primes the gut for food. So yeah, most of spiritual experiences are basically digestion.

    your brain throws away visual information then fills in the gaps predicatively because it's quicker and causes less cognitive load, my theory is common hallucinations (walls breathing etc) are caused by this fact and are not true hallucinations but fall into the category of distortions, the brain can be changes either chemically or structurally, drug users seem to ignore this second part and revert to "drug leaves your body within x hours" for structural changes in the brain time is important but more important is the intensity of the experience, if you're trying to cause structure changes intensity x time works well enough - having spoken to a few people with hppd, looking at reports online and the treatments it all seems to converge that the issue is pattern recognition being flawed
    >most hppd people have a lot of time on drugs
    >most hppdpeople have had bad trips
    >most hppd people report intense trips leading up to hppd
    the treatments that work
    >complete abstinence from all psychs (they would enforce the changes) interestingly alcohol and weed are usually included and both happen to hinder your brains pattern recognition ability
    >some anti seizure medications which again support my theory since anti seizure meds make your brain throw away less visual information which would mean your brain has less ability to predict incorrect information

    there's more examples to be taken like low sleep negatively impacting it, cardio being more beneficial for treatment than lifting (it happens to create more bdnf) everything I've found supports strongly the idea hppd is just you causing lasting changes to your brains ability to correct fill in gaps in the visual field - some people also reach a point os psych sensitivity i.e they do acid a few times then suddenly weed becomes "stronger" I would hazard a guess this is literally an early symptom of hppd

      It's the gut as I laid out in previous posts. Walls breathing is literally your intestines moving shit around. This information is not supposed to reach your conscious experience, but the things like drugs, meditation and staring at the unchanging spot on the wall will cause less activity in your pfc because nothing's happening. Less cognitive load allows for things you usually can't see to seep in, eg. your gut. Whether is it because of sheer amount of nerve endings there or the serotonin receptors specifically I don't know. But the more you observe this, the stronger the connection between the gut and the brain becomes, which after a while becomes a permanent part of your experience, or hppd.

        home come people who take psychs after days of fasting (intestines would be empty) experience the wall moving? this would also mean eating lots of food vs little changes the intensity of walls moving but everyone reports psyches when fasting is more intense not less
        >the things like drugs, meditation and staring at the unchanging spot on the wall will cause less activity in your pfc because nothing's happening. Less cognitive load allows for things you usually can't see to seep in, eg. your gut.
        drugs cause much greater activity in the brain and prefrontal

          The food isn't moving the intestine, the muscles are, which are connected to neurons, which get data from other neurons until you get to receptors, like serotonin receptors on which psychs act upon and you have tons of in the gut
          My bad for not being precise as I'm phoneposting, by pfc I meant the part of the brain responsible for the conscious experience, which is in the general area, anyways while globally the brain is stimulated in terms of connectivity, it is subdued in local level, imagine replacing a network of many roads with a couple of highways. Thus you get more data globally why the local processing is inhibited. Not all act the same too

            >The food isn't moving the intestine, the muscles are
            The intestines muscles move based on food or circadian rhythm, after 48 hours of fasting signalling is downregulated to the point that the intestines are barely moving, the blood flow is redirected to kidneys and digestive supporting organs incase there is a sudden intake of food - so if intestine movement is responsible for walls moving then anyone who's fasted for 2 days+ before takings psychs shouldn't experiance the walls moving and again since fasting lowers activity in both the gut and intestines exeperiances should be less vivid not more

            >like serotonin receptors on which psychs act upon and you have tons of in the gut
            There are psychs that don't act upon serotonin and the serotonin in your gut has absolutely nothing to do with the serotonin in your brain it's just used to stimulate digestion as a signalling process - the serotonin in your gut does not end up in your brain because it cannot permiate from the gut through the blood brain barrier (though some chemicals in the gut can) so I don't understand how it relates

            Why wouldn't it feel worse? The gut obviously gets stimulated by psychedelics which anyone who's ever done any will tell you after they stop shitting themselves. If we take acid as an example, you don't ingest any significant amount of matter, in fact you can spit out the tab, yet it will still stimulate the intestines when the drug takes effect. If intestines didn't play a role in hallucinations it wouldn't make a difference whether you fasted or not!!! The state of the intestines which you describe after a 48h fast isn't the state of tripping on a 48h fast! Maybe they're moving more freely without shit in them, I don't know. What I do know is what I feel and how it matches spacial distortions across my vision.
            I never said that serotonin gets from your gut to your brain. It stimulates the intestines, an organ which you can then feel, apparently via synesthesia. Explore those mind spaces further and it develops into a weird 3d feeling of space around your head, it's indescribable and useful. I had IBS my whole life, I can literally control it now just by feeling out this space and doing an intuitive command for my guts to do something. I don't know what it does, but when I do it the pain goes away and the stool is fine. I could not have done this before and if I don't actively do it the symptoms come back. N=1, sorry, it works, I know what I see and feel.

            sure but if you're intestines are digesting food + psychs it would be more stimulated, so it would be less stimulated if you're fasting on psychs but yet fasting makes the experience more (not less intense)
            >I never said that serotonin gets from your gut to your brain
            My point was you acted as though since psychs act on serotonin in the brain that will effect the gut I could have misunderstood
            >It stimulates the intestines, an organ which you can then feel, apparently via synesthesia.
            I'm not sure if english is your second language you can feel the intestines because they are a sensory organ, it is normal to be able to feel your intestines even when sober

            I don't mean to sound harsh but it seems like you're building off your personal experience instead of building from scientific understand of how psychedelics/the brain works - also I'm glad your IBS is better I've heard some estimates think the majority of cases are psychosomatic so psychs/therapy might be a very viable treatment option so you could probably replicate your experience to other people to get higher than n=1

            I can point a simple counter argument that since the gut isn't actively doing something else, the effect of the drugs will be more apparent. Maybe the effects are more apparent because your intestines really really aren't supposed to act in such a way especially when empty.
            Yeah I think you misunderstood my point about serotonin. The same receptors to which the psych bind are both in the brain and the gut.
            The sense of gut is different than the pain or pressure you experience normally. It is present as a space around your visual field and inside your head. I can't do much better than this because it's like explaining red to a person who's never seen it. The sense develops after you intuit the connection between the gut and the visuals, and then the visuals get replaced by it. You can will the visuals back, but the since the brain apparently figured out what it is, it now tries to present it in a more sensible way.
            No amount of sciencing will help here, how could you study internal experience? There isn't even a language to express most these things. It's qualia, how brain data represents itself to the self-reflexive apparatus, you can't really scan that.
            I am confident in my conclusions mostly since I started with a similar idea to your original post, after years and years trying to connect the dots between the visual snow aka closed eye hals, and more complex hallucinations presenting themselves to me. It lead me to this, it is clear to me because I directly observe it. I tried simple tricks I learned along the way on friends and family to confirm to myself the related phenomena isn't unique to me. Painful constipation will be helped by visualizing oneself moving through a tunnel, in case you can't focus watch tardis from dr who traveling though the time vortex, but feel like it's you moving. My mom's visual migraines went away after nagging her to eat probiotic yogurt for two weeks, etc.
            Try focusing on what your gut is doing when the visuals happen.

            I know the pfc, prefrontal cortex is meant to contain conciousness but only when connected to the brain hollistically I directly addressed this point, drugs cause increased activity in the prefrontal cortex, and psychs have a huge cognitive load when compared to sober

            I'm not sure what you mean by local I'm guessing you mean lateral firings vs condensed firings of neuron groups? or maybe you're talking about interconnectivity of brain reigons vs how many synapses are firing? since I don't know I'll address both psychs cause an increase in both lateral firings and condesed firings, it also causes greater increases in interconectivity and synpases firing (in terms of count and intensity).

        What you say makes some sense to me in theory but how does it explain something like the globular floater in the OPs picrel?

        I mean having literally the same irregularly shaped floater post trip that's stuck around for years.

        Also, is HPPD more prevalent with LSD? It seems like it is. Could it be due to a contaminant?

      I got HPPD type 2 early October last year after doing LSD, magic truffles and weed. Wasn't even that excessive, just unlucky genes I guess.

      It's gradually gotten better, and I have an easier time ignoring it now. From other first hand accounts I've read online, it disappears completely on its own after 1-5 years for most people (as long as you don't keep taking psychedelics). But I'm still a bit worried as there is a chance it'll stay with me for the rest of my life.

      >Pic
      This is pretty close to the patterns I see if I focus on a single spot for more than 1-2 seconds. Same exact visuals as I would have on LSD.

      Also I've had visual snow and tinnitus from birth, neither have worsened, not sure if that means anything.

      I've contemplated starting on Clonidine but it's kind of hard to get prescribed since both the drug and condition is so obscure. Are there any other drugs or treatments that show decent potential? I'd rather not have to deal with the withdrawals from two months straight of Clonazepam.

        not really, some people say anti psychotics but they're much higher risk than epilepsy meds, it seems like excluding the medication route your only option is complete sobriety and low stimulation lifestyle also earlier in your post you mention abstaining from psychs but it goes away a lot better/quicker with complete sobriety including things like alcohol until it goes away then once it's gone work under the assumption you are the worlds biggest lightweight and incredibly sensitive to drugs

          Huh.. I heard the likelihood of becoming an alcoholic increased significantly with HPPD because it was one of the few "drugs" you could use without worsening the symptoms.

          Might be that not drinking is just connected with having a healthier lifestyle, which does positively impact the condition.

          Still, can't hurt.

      My theory is that hppd is caused by a lack of a certain neurotransmitter, the same way a lack of dopamine causes tremors in muscles. For an unknown reason the body down regulates the neurotransmitter in question causing hppd. This would explain why drugs can induce it. Probably 5HT2A receptor btw. I also read a high iq reddit post saying it was some kind of virus a while back but I can't find it.

      My eye floaters look exactly like bacteria under a microscope. So I'm gonna go for the simplest answer and assume that's that.

        Ive basically had no health problems, by awakening I mean when I started applying my brain outside of school and realised how much I actually enjoy learning, the night in particular was a year or so later and I had realised that everything I knew was basically not true(or some sort of propaganda). I had a shower at 2 am in the dark while quite upset about everything and when I turned the light back on I saw the static from then on.

    That's normal artifacting that your brain usually filters out. I see those all the time, and I haven't done anything harder than alcohol. Frying your brain with hallucinogenics causes you to notice them. There's no solution because it's not really a problem.
    Floaters are just coagulated proteins in your eye vitreous fluid. Visual snow is just signal noise. I'm not sure what the cause of negative landscape is though (first I've heard of it).

There's actually even more shit you could see, like phosphenes and their morphing, the capillaries in your eyes, your blind spots, recognizing patterns on a surface that doesn't repeat and you don't recognize from somewhere else. I remember for a long time the green purple gridded dots where almost constant.

      you're halfway here, floaters are beyond tho

      "But did you know that these dots and strings have a spiritual meaning for some people and are used for meditation? One of these people is Nestor, a hermit from the Swiss Emmental whom I met in the 1990s. For Nestor, these dots and strings are not vitreous opacities but a consciousness phenomenon. According to his experience, floaters dramatically change in the course of consciousness development. At the beginning we may perceive floaters as cloudy or transparent, more or less disturbing dots and strings. A seer like Nestor, on the other hand, sees them as big spheres and tubes of a luminous structure."

    "Apart from ophthalmology, are there alternative perspectives on the benign, clearly outlined dots and strings?

    Yes, there’s a spiritual explanation: These dots and strings are not vitreous opacities, but parts of our shining consciousness structure.

    In the mid-1990s, I met a man named Nestor who lives in the solitude of the hilly Emmental region of Switzerland. Nestor understands himself as a “seer”. He sees the very same dots and strings that are described above as eye floaters. However, Nestor’s claims that his floaters have changed due to psychophysiological practices intended to intensify consciousness: They became bigger and more numerous, luminous, and developed into a multi-layered shining structure with a center which he approaches through seeing. To Nestor, “eye floaters” are actually a shining structure which is created by our consciousness and in which we enter when we leave our body. For many years, I’ve been learning the art of seeing with Nestor, and today I can confirm: This kind of floaters – the “shining structure floaters,” as I will call them in the following – are a phenomenon of light and consciousness. It is a mistake to conceive them as “vitreous opacity” or “vitreous degeneration syndrome”."

    I did acid several hundred times between the age of about 16 to 22 and now at the age of 27, the walls and ground still breath a bit. I see the “visual snow” and all that stuff. Sometimes it’s stronger than other times but it’s always there. It doesn’t bother me and I actually enjoy it sometimes. I’ve been sober for the last 5 years so it almost feels like a free one sometimes. For me, It’s definitely the result of doing more drugs than I should have and that’s it. Nothing else.
