A description of the experience
Oliver Sacks – Hallucinations
When I arrived and greeted her, I was surprised to realize that Rosalie was completely blind - the nurses had said nothing about this.
Though she had not seen anything at all for several years, she was now "seeing" things, right in front of her.
"What sort of things?" I asked.
"People in Eastern dress!" she exclaimed. "In drapes, walking up and down stairs ….a man who turns towards me and smiles, but he has huge teeth on one side of his mouth.
Animals, too. I see this scene with a white building, and it is snowing - a soft snow, it is swirling. I see this horse (not a pretty horse, a drudgery horse) with a harness, dragging snow away…. but it keeps switching … I see a lot of children; they're walking up and down stairs. They wear bright colours - rose, blue - like Eastern dress
She had been seeing such scenes for several days
