Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Oliver Sacks – Hallucinations
I am a 77-year-old woman with glaucoma damage to mostly the lower half of my vision.
About two months ago, I started to see music, lines, spaces/ notes/ clefs-in fact written music on everything I looked at, but only where the blindness exists.
I ignored it for a while, but when I was visiting the Seattle Art Museum one day and I saw the lines of the explanatory notes as music, I knew I was really having some kind of hallucination.
... I had been playing the piano and really concentrating on music prior to the musical hallucinations …. It was right before my cataract was removed
