Peripheral Vision Training 4.40 long from ZhealthPerformance. Interesting. Talks about tunnel vision and angst. Peripheral awareness stimulates specific circuits in the brain. Apparently alzheimer's is connected with a lack of peripheral vision.
Peripheral Vision – A simple technique to counter unhelpful negative emotions about parasympathetic system being activated by peripheral vision. This comes form James Conlon who also writes on https://www.ibex-ct.com/articles/tips-to-conquer-stress-anxiety
"9. Switch to Peripheral Vision
The sympathetic nervous system’s primary function is to stimulate the body’s fight or flight response. It regulates the levels of adrenaline in the blood and floods our bodies with stress hormones when we experience danger. In contrast, the parasympathetic nervous system has a calming effect on the body. It’s responsible for digestion and preparing us for sleep. It lowers our heart rate and neutralises stress hormones, following the fight or flight response once the perceived danger has gone."
"The sympathetic nervous system is associated with foveal vision. Directly focussing on an object. It makes sense that when we encounter a threat that we solely focus on it. Whilst the parasympathetic nervous system is associated with peripheral vision. Not directly focussing on any one thing, but being aware of everything around us. If you think about the last time you felt really relaxed, maybe laying by the pool or at the beach whilst on holiday. The chances are you weren’t focussed on any one thing but absorbing everything around you."
"Simply switching from foveal to peripheral vision when we feel anxious or stressed, activates the parasympathetic nervous system. As the two nervous systems can’t be active at the same time the body will naturally calm. This is incredibly simple to do."

In Peripheral Vision Jevon Dangeli combines it with lots of relaxation exercises and expands the focus point. 21.00 long. A bit complex at times but it is essentially exploring the same area as i am. Seems to suggest trance states are possible with his method of expanding the central focal point.
