Intensive mental training has a measurable effect on visual perception, according to a new study from the Center for Mind and Brain at the University of California, Davis. People undergoing intensive training in meditation became better at making fine visual distinctions and sustaining attention during a 30-minute test.
I read about this and wondered if that was what was going on with my experience of strange left eye energy in May. Even though my eyes were closed, I somehow had an impression that my visual acuity had increased.
Imagine getting to meditate for 6 hours a day for 3 months in the Rockies! I’d like to volunteer for more experiments like this.
