Well...this has nothing to do with Nenbutsu..but once when I was at a casino playing video blackjack for at least 10 hours straight....when i tried to go to sleep that night all I could see when i closed my eyes, were the cards , in detail, flipping over, and the sound it makes..I wasn't dreaming...I just couldn't get the images and sounds out of my head !
So I guess SOMETHING will happen with intense repetition .....

:namaste:
This has happened to me with video games, especially Star Craft. :shrug:
Is there a word for this phenomenon?

The four means of converting beings to the Dharma are generosity (which itself as four aspects: giving material gifts, conferring fearlessness, loving kindness and teaching Dharma), pleasant speech, conduct and setting an example.

I found this...it helps a little i think :

"In a positive afterimage, the colors of the original image are maintained. Essentially, the afterimage looks the same as the original image. You can experience a positive afterimage yourself by staring at a very brightly lit scene for a period of time and then closing your eyes. For the briefest of moments, you will continue to "see" the original scene in the same colors and brightness.


The exact mechanisms behind positive afterimages are not well understood, although researchers believe that the phenomenon might be related to retinal inertia. The original image stimulates nerve impulses, and these impulses continue for a small window of time after you close your eyes or look away from the scene. The cells in the retina take some time to respond to light, and once the cells have been excited it takes some time for that response to cease. While positive afterimages happen quite frequently, we are generally unaware of them because they are so brief, often lasting as little as 500 milliseconds."

Funny as it sounds; It's called the Tetris Effect, or Tetris Syndrome

http://howtolucid.com/the-tetris-effect/
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetris_effect
The Tetris effect occurs when people devote so much time and attention to an activity that it begins to pattern their thoughts, mental images, and dreams.
A good read.
The cost of a thing is the amount of what I call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
