The students usually feel relaxed and yet quite alert. The fantasy tends to generate feeling states that may be seen as either positive or negative but nevertheless appear to be safe. Students have described being both involved in the fantasy while at the same time being a detached observer. This dual awareness permits them to break out of the fantasy at any time. Only a small minority of students deny having any imagery at all and their imaging ability tends to improve with practice. It is not uncommon for the experience to be described as extraordinary.
These would include: 1. After-imagery. This is produced by staring at a well-lit object for a period of time and then shifting the gaze to a blank surface. The resultant after-image is probably due to lingering activity in the retina. This is best illustrated by staring at an CATCHING AN ELUSIVE CONCEPT 31 illuminated light bulb for a few seconds and then looking at a wall or sheet of paper. 2. Eidetic imagery.
