Many years ago I was visiting friends and playing with their year or so old daughter. We were sitting in the floor playing with wooden building
blocks, me sitting to her left. She would stack and unstack them and, every so often for reasons that make sense only to children, she would find one
unacceptable and hand it to me. I would accept it and add it to my stack. One time, however, she handed the block off to her right and seemed
quite surprised when it fell to the floor. She looked to her right, babbled for a few seconds in toddler talk, then picked up the block and carefully
handed it to me. After that, when she picked up a block, she would look to her right for a second before turning and giving it to me. For all the
world, it looked to me like she saw someone sitting to her right that I couldn't see, and that she was mad at him because he hadn't caught the block
she was handing over.
To respond to one of the earlier posters, I think it does seem plausible that young children can see light frequencies that adults can't. It's well
established that teenagers can hear sounds in ranges that adults can't.
To respond to another of the earlier posters, the older brother of one of the friends in the first story was involved in an accident in his teens
where chemicals of some kind got sprayed in his eyes. For the next few months he wore glasses with weird purple-ish lenses so dark you could barely
see his eyes. Normal room lighting irritated his eyes and the black lights we liked to play with were downright painful. But he could navigate
through the house with no lights on and he liked to go out on dark nights and look at the sky, where he could see stars so dim they were invisible to
the rest of us. Every once in a while, he'd take off his glasses and stare at an odd corner of the room for a few minutes. I always meant to ask him
what he saw that was so fascinating.
