I'm being presumptuous by posting this here, but I reckon people interested in parapsychology would probably have the best odds of 'getting' what I'm on about.

Now and then when I'm resting my eyes or just got in to bed I experience what I can only describe as Super HD video clips. They happen in the top right of my closed eyed vision and change topic every couple of seconds (Sometimes moving to a more central position in my mind's view). It really is like watching fragments of a movie, I can see people and place and things I've never seen or don't remember seeing. Sometimes the images are extremely gruesome and other times vibrantly beautiful, but rarely mundane and always finely detailed and with sweeping cinematics.

Does anyone else get these? They are really entertaining and I can usually get them to start by themselves when I remember they exist.

Sounds like hypnogogic visions; they usually are very vivid and detailed.

I always find mine quite threatening, even if the subjects aren't!

Sometimes I get snippets of conversation while I'm resting or about to fall asleep.

Hypnopompic, I believe is the term for the audible version.

I sometimes wonder if I'm picking up on a neighbor's conversation or something.

Then again, it could me my brain preparing my for dreamtime.

Very interesting, just read up on hypnogogic and hypnopompic business. I'm glad you mentioned the voices as I wasn't sure if I was going mad! I sometimes hear short phrases in both a male and female voice and it's always in an american accent!

I think hypnogogic is when you're falling asleep and hypnopompic when you're waking up.

Either can be audio or visual or both.
