I don't recall noticing a difference in how I felt when the image
would change. At first, the double image just happened, but then I
would consciously do it. I found it helpful in keeping my awareness
in the room. I feel it's a good idea to keep some awareness of my
environment when I am meditating because I think it may help when
trying to experince a meditative awareness throughout the day. I
don't know if this is actually true or not, just seems right to me.

This was the first time this happened. There wasn't any connection
with being a kid. I just mentioned it to help describe the image,
thinking maybe someone else had one of those books too.
