Closed Eye Visuals

Let me start by saying this I had a lot to drink and did a little cocaine the night before. Now that I got that out of the way, I woke up having a normal morning, drank my coffee and ate a bagel. I went to lay down and take a nap and I could see VIVID faces. Its like I had dream like visuals yet I was totally awake! This gave me some really bad anxiety I honestly thought I was going to have a panic attack. It happened all day, I would get sequences of random images usually faces when I closed my eyes. It only lasted one day and has not come back.

Any ideas what that is?

There are certain parts of the eye, can't recall what they are called, that produce patterns or images without any visual input. One time I saw the Roman aqueducts for a split second that way! Kind of neat. Sometimes I've seen landscapes too. You can see some of this for yourself if you rub your closed eyes, gently, while in a dark room. You will probably see some kind of phosphorescent looking shape, and possibly a pattern. Sometimes we see that kind of thing while falling asleep too.

I would say it was your brain being stimulated by the chemicals you'd taken in, combined by that part of the eye being activated, that showed you the faces.
