Hello, Thank you to all who have replied to my post. You have raised some interresting points. On the one side of the spectrum, there have been enqueries about whether I may have been exposed to medication or electromagnetic pulses; on the other side, there have been suggestions that these kinds of hallucinations may precede or accompany migraine headaches. At least so far, I have seen no evidence of either of these possible causes (despite the persistent 'mild headache' that I mentioned, that persists even as I type these words, I have never had migraine). The lights that I saw fascinated me, but, for a while, I was a little worried about them, and especially about the 'gunshot' in my head (as another member accurately put it). As long as they occur 'post-sleep', I will enjoy them. When your mind does these things to you, as a scientist, you tend to wonder just how large the difference between 'post-sleep' hallucinations and full-blown, any-time-of-the-day hallucinations are. It is comforting now that I have heard that it happens to some of you too, without becoming something more serious. Let me put it this way: It is nice to know I am not the only crazy freak out there! :-). Thanks, Marius Myburg.
