When you see upon a getting punch in the face.

Those of us training in any form of physical contact martial arts or any form of physical sports where anything blunt slam into their heads they will see what looked to be the solar system projection in their brain. Its the phenomenon we see in comic strips, graphic novels, cartoons and even live action movies to name a few. It almost have the same before & after effect of consuming alcoholic beverages only that it doesn't require any money. Very affective for 'Cheap Bastards'who just wants to see stars in daylight for free.

Why spend all that money space program to see the stars right?
So what is it about getting smacked in the head, allows us to see glimpse of the milky way?

It's all got to do with your brain. Which is the on/off switch of everything for a living creatures. There is a part of your brain at the back of your head called the occipital lobe, that takes information sent from the retina and converts to the image around you that made sense. Imagine its like downloading por.....i mean martial arts videos like Zhangief Kid, the signals goes into your laptop that filters the information and converts it into Video & Audio for people to enjoy.

Now imagine whilst streaming your videos in the internet, suddenly a fat cat falls and knocked your laptop to the ground. The internal hard-drive was bumped and caused the hard-drive to freeze up as a safety measure, but when you view the viewing, it may have paused the video and the player maybe have created some weird jaggedy blurred lines.

See video below, courtesy of Fight Science by National Geography - (through youtube) explains how a punch can impact the Hard Drive in your head.

The video shows concussion, but if the punch is much lighter the brain does the exact effect brain playing bumper cars in your skull.

An Assistant clinical professor of neuro-ophthalmology at UC Irvine explains, "If you irritate the brain, it may create something like a cry vision, a response of distortion, particularly to lights from what the eyes are receiving. This is because retina only does one thing; it sees lights or it doesn't."

Those who wish to see stars in daylight, all we have to do is just rub our eyes. By putting pressure to the retina, it will send duped signal like an email title 'light!' but without text in the body. So that is what you'll get, flecks of uninformed light on top of the landscape that your brain can make sense of.

Kinda like when you have an un-smooth camera lense it creates a weirdly distorted images - except the brain is smart enough not to distort your girlfriend to a horse.....(unless your intoxicated with alcohol)
