Visualization


Visualization is the ability or skill to see something that doesn't 'really' exist in front of your eyes, either keeping your eyes closed or open.  A mental image is the representation in a person's mind of the physical world outside of that person.  It is an experience that, on most occasions, significantly resembles the experience of perceiving some object, event, or scene, but occurs when the relevant object, event, or scene is not actually present to the senses.  There are sometimes episodes, particularly on falling asleep and waking up, when the mental imagery, being of a rapid, dreamlike and involuntary character, defies perception, presenting a kaleidoscopic field, in which no distinct object can be discerned.
