In other input receptors the sensation of pain is a physical
aggravation. In vision, the sensation of pain is reflected in intense
values that are registered as bright lights. Seeing 'stars' is the
value of visual input nearing neutral (excess value, whether it be by
extreme input or by injury or damage. An example (hypothethical of
course)
if normal visual experience registers at 10 based upon 

(((b-i)/2)+i) where the result is 10  (b=base value, i=input value)

and the base value is 20, a result that approaches 20 will register as
pain (in the visual experience this borders from bright intense light,
which through the slew rate of the receptors feeding first level
comparative memory, slowly dissapates) to shut down of the visual
system in parts (which registers as localized shock) to total shut
down of the system ( which registers as localized trauma resulting in
receptor shut down and temporary blindness.)

when i exceeds b shut down occurs.

Since not all receptors are focused on an external source of
intensity, those that are suffer the result and we see 'stars'.
Internal causes can also create excess values. Injury can jolt values
to exceed normal processing levels.

What was explained in balance of the system is exactly that. What most
people refuse to consider is that balance goes both ways. Less than
base results in normal values, too much 'less' and deficiency occurs.
but there is also 'excess' from base and neutral cancellation of
values. Approaching the neutral causes pain. Exceeding the neutral
causes shock. Repetitive exceeding neutral sets up memory that results
in coma. Both localized and system wide in variations of intensity.

ALL brain computational functions use the same protocol equation. The
individual pathways are connected to individual receptors. Disconnect
the receptor and connect it to another pathway and the same process
will occur. It will take time of supportive new memory from that
receptor to make relevance to the computational results.

If differing types of pathways are crossed the processing of memory
values will not be relevant to the previous pathways values, so the
Ferrett would be on a 'high' of unusual perception for a short time
until the memory values are relevant to the new type of receptor. But
since new memory is a result of comparison to new input (except in
dreams which do not have the benefit of reality based external input
values but compares to memory alone) the old memory base of the
previous receptor will entropy away without being supported and will
be replaced by the new relevant values of the new receptor feeding
that pathway.
