I have my shares with interesting encounters such as shadow creatures, ghosts, moving balls of light, and etc but they were amazing experiences.

I believe I may of also came up with a theory as to why some of us are able to see paranormal beings while other can't. I believe it's all about awareness and concentration. I believe that when when heighten our state of awareness, we tend to become more keen to our surrounding (obviously), our visions becomes more sensative, and our photoreceptors becomes more sensative. Our retinas contains millions of receptor cells. They respond to light entering our eyes, which is why they are called photoreceptors.

So when our photoreceptors becomes sensative and our Peripheral vision (our "side" vision, very sensative to movement) become more sensative, wouldn't we be able to gather more information and light reflections of a moving paranormal being that could possibly travel through our dimension.

Well that just explain the "beings" we see at the corner of the eyes, I really have no clue how we can see beings sometimes in with our Central vision. But we tend to focus alot more when using our central vision, and with awareness our focus will heighten and we can detect them, because I think some being are able to travel very flash as it crosses dimension. Thats why its hard for us to see them, but if we use a camcorder, the records everything in a split of a second, and if we go through the tape frame by frame it would be possible to see these creatures.

This again is just my theory, lol, so yea you can add or disprove it, this is all I have to say.

Edit: I'm just calling this my theory but truthfully I'm a modest guy, and well I'm pretty sure alot of people thought of this as well, but I'm probably the first to post it. So I shouldn't claim any right to it as far as I know. I can tell you guys that I did thought of this theory independently and had no outside influences.

Your theory makes a whole load of sense to me. I've been pondering about these things we see in the corner of our eyes for a very long time and came up with a similar theory to yours.

I see it like our minds have been conditioned to filter out the unknown and things that appear in our central vision get alot more of our attention than what we see in our peripheral vision. In my opinion when these things enter our field of vision our conditioning tells us these things dont exist so we filter them out.

I've found a technique to observe these things clearly and with this technique you can also observe them with your central vision. I need to put myself in a certain state of mind for this technique to work.

I made a thread about this previously but unfortunately it was closed and my name was banned.

Here it is:

To the moderators, I know its breaking the rules making a new name but I didnt realize at the time my thread was breaking the rules and since my name was banned I didnt have a chance to explain myself.

I actually know of these things you see, the psychedelic swirls, the dots, ghosts, shadows, linear grid burns, and so much more. I hear voices sometimes of people that I know. It maybe that I am a bit insane, but what man isn't a little insane these day. All I know is I don't need drugs to see these things.

I see the swirls when my mind is clear and I focus on something. It's strange. to me the swirls are actually several evenly separated circular purple ripples or rings that makes a bull eyes of some sort and moves inward. I think in the center of the swirls or ripples, is my point of concentration or focus, because it always seems to be there. When I play lacrosse I see this swirls sometimes and when I shoot a ball it hits where I focused and saw the swirls.

The dots, ghost and shadow I see randomly at times, it could be every hour every month that I see those things. The dots and these beings I can see both in my central and peripheral vision. My eyes are so keen to catching the slightest change in my surrounding.

Nice theory! I was wondering about that, too. I see things out of the corner of my eye alot. Sometimes it's of a white rabbit, my passed on father, a dark, small animal-like shadow running by. I hear voices, too, but like Skyblueff0 said I could just be going insane.

I like knowing that I'm not the only one with these strange visions.

My theory has always been this.

Our optic sensors only"see" a section of the spectrum, we call it visible light. What if it is possible to train the optic sensor to see more of that spectrum, more bandwidth. This is what I have always felt that people do when "seeing out the corner of eye"


I have seen in ultra violet before. That was spectacular, after i had been meditating for a few hours I stood up then I was seeing everything in that pale purplely colour that you see instruments get sanitized in. no other colour, only the ultra violet. So it is possible.

LOL, interesting theory, that does make sense, and could possibly even be binded with my theory, but thats another day.

So, are you trying to say our eyes can see only electromagnetic wave of a certain length, in our case it would be visible light right, and beyond that range or below that range we cant see the being. When you focus you might be able to decrease or increase the amount of electromagnetic wave of a certain length thus enabling to to see others thing people cant see.

I think its interesting that you (Mayet) are able to focus enough to see in the Ultraviolet Frequency. Well I have a story and some experiment that I like you guys to all do and hear. I was always curious as to why at night, if I were to shut my eyes for a certain period of time usually in the span of five minutes, and then open it, I was able to see somewhat in the dark, I can only see shades of greys though, and even though I can see the objects and details to an extent, I cant read out small print or certain pictures at night.

Also at night if you have little visibily, it is possible to basically "blackout" and be consious of it. It's really werid. I would always ponder at night (thats when I reflect and think), basically I one day realize that if you were to stare blank into the ceiling or something, you would actually and slowly blackout. Don't move your eyes, and dont focus, just stare and the ceiling, and strange things will happen.

So yea try these experiments and see if you get the same result.

I do such exercises with my eyes at time now. I don't have the ability to purposely focus in ultra violet, its only happened once or twice to me now but was amazing.

But yes when I was reading your ideas before I did think they somewhat fit in with and expanded on my ideas.

and theres another thing that happpen to my eyes. This is going to sound odd and bad but its real. I was in a bad bad violent relationship for quite a few years. I found when I got kicked in the head with a boot, that I would just see flashes of brilliant colour. like kick flash blue, kick flash yellow or red. Only ever one colour.

I never felt the pain of this action, for some reason all I knew saw and felt was the colour, like the colour emcompassed all exploding in my head and absorbed it which is probably just as well.

Now at times if I rub my eyes or knock them accidently or even apply eyemakeup with my eyes closed or similiar I see the flashes of the colour, mainly blue lately. It take over its hard to explain, all of a sudden there is in my mind and vision an explosion of that one flash colour.

The reason I am saying this is I have a fair idea of why from what the doctors have told me. They said that my optic nerve may have somehow separated when I was kicked, they are not sure but it logically to me may also mean I have that permanent which is why it still happens.

But now and over the years i have pondered these single colours. It looks a bit like my avatar, only ever just one colour and thats one reason those flashes of colour are in my avatar.

I don't know much about vision and the way we do see, but I think it involves like tv picture tube guns.. a red yellow and blue gun, the primary colours. I may be wrong but the eyes have fascinated me since these things have happened. .. and i am curious to figure out why I get these flashes and what they are.

The day I saw in ultra violet though was before all that, way before.

Interesting posts.


There's the fact that autists seem to try to control people and scan their emotions from the corner of their own eyes, somehow. I know that autists are people closer to their instinct than most, so, I'm wondering if there isn't a correletaion between form control, reality creation and the corners of the eyes, where incertainty is higher. Try this yourself: glance at people from the corner of your eyes and I'm pretty sure the intention exchange will be a lot clearer.


Concerning the beings you see at the corners, I think these forms are from the etheric realm which is like a fourth dimension, the subtle. For some reason our brain seems to "hide" or supress these etheric canals along the gross, the same way it hides the fact that your eyes are seeing an inverted image of its environment, reprocessed the right way in your mind.

I know exactly what you mean, similar things happen to my when im lying in bed at night thinking.

Theres a shamanic technique called "defocalization" which allows one to percieve that which we usually dont percieve in our normal state of mind. I've been practicing it and it works for me.

If anybodies willing to experiment with these things heres a funny technique which allows you to spot odd things in your surroundings which the normal state of mind wont usually percieve.

When lying in bed or lying down in the dark calm your mind down as much as possible and quiet your thoughts as best you can. When you find yourself in a relaxed and clear state of mind cross your eyes but dont concentrate on anything in your visual field, dont worry you'll spot every little detail without having to concentrate on them. When your eyes are crossed you'll look at your surroundings and see how it differs from when your eyes were straight. Once you notice how everything in your surroundings have been distorted you'll also notice strange things in "between" your surroundings. Its very hard to explain but once your eyesight changes its as if it gives you the ability to see between or behind your field of vision and you can spot odd things which your normal eyesight couldnt.

It will probably freak you out at first because some of the things you see look exactly like those shadow people you see on ghost websites and crap like that. They dont exactly have a human form but they seem to take on the appearance of living beings slightly human in shape.

It takes some practice but is fairly easy to get the hang of. Although they would probably facilitate it, psychoactive substances arent necessary for this technique.

I know what you mean, when I get punched in the face I always get a flash of yellow, red or black. Dont remember blue though,


Now at times if I rub my eyes or knock them accidently or even apply eyemakeup with my eyes closed or similiar I see the flashes of the colour, mainly blue lately. It take over its hard to explain, all of a sudden there is in my mind and vision an explosion of that one flash colour.

When I was a kid I used to love pressing my eyes to see the psychedelic colors. I remember I used to get all sorts of collages and visions of colors which formed shapes like rivers, volcanoes etc. I remember the only way to get real psychedelic visions was when I pressed the eyes hard enough and long enough until they started to hurt like hell. Your probably thinking it cant be too good for the eyes but in my case it did me no harm, I have 20/20 vision and can see alot better than alot of people.

God I was stupid when I was younger. The whole fun part of it was waking up not knowing where you are and all your friends are standing there laughing their asses off.

Nice technique, sorry I didn't respond soon enough, I thought this thread was long dead, but hey I guess not, and as long as its alive, i'll try and give it some life.

Hey guys can answer a question for me? Have strange sighting of enities,shadow people or shadow creatures been more common to you lately?

I'm just wondering if you guys are experiencing the same thing I'm going through. Lately my vision has been kinda changing. Everything has a glow to it, when it move this faded glowing trail can be seen. Not only that, I'm more aware of subtle light changes and these grain like static that constantly change...its weird hopefully I can create a similar effect using photoshop later. Also these past few days, my encounter with "shadow creatures" has drastically increase, at first I would see one every few months, but now I see one almost every day, and now I can slowly see these things with my central vision.

I'm just going through this weird change, no I haven't been using any psychedelic drugs, or drugs for matter of that fact. I'm straight edge, lol, but yeah I haven't been doing anything special, just the usual teenager thing, I've just been more aware of these things for some reason, I'm just wondering, is it just more, or are these things occurring more and more? I just wanted to know if this is like a global conscious shift or just an individual kinda thing.

Does anyone think sleep deprivation and staring at a cpu monitor in a low light surrounding can cause you to see things out of the corner of your eyes?

Actually, there's a basic physiological reason for the phenomenon you discuss, and that is the way the two basic types of photoreceptors (rods and cones) are placed in the human eye.

Rods are responsible for vision at low light levels (scotopic vision), and are found at disproportionate numbers on the outside of the cornea, or the edge of our vision. They do not mediate color vision, and have a low spatial acuity. They're the ones which are most sensitive to motion, which was a good aid to survival, allowing us to see that saber-tooth cat sneaking up on us from the side.

Cones are active at higher light levels (photopic vision), are capable of color vision and are responsible for high spatial acuity. They are found primarily in the center of the eye.

When you start talking about someones eyes ... it is kinda odd .. Because have you actually seen out of anyone else eyes ??? I would be very very very interested in and if anyone has ever seen out of anyone elses eyes ??? If not then what is to say we all don't see different colors ... ??? Because if we have all just been taught ... that red is red .. everyone would say ... that this color is red or the sky is blue ... But what if your eyes actually saw different Vibrations ... off the different colors ... ??? We would still all learn ... that they were still the same color .... anyways ....


I think what is even MORE INTERESTING is that , they have proven that dogs are color blind .... How did they come to this conclusion ??? I mean do they understand what a dog is thinking at all times ... and if they do is it because they have taught them what to think ... or what to do when they are thinking a particular thought ??? Just a random response ... I will probably get blasted about the format or about how I did something wrong .. and for that I will go ahead and apologize ... I am truly just trying to ask a question ... Please I am at -1297 ... I am not going for a grand total here or anything ...

i was always under the impression that they swirls you see out of your peripheril vision is a sort of universal energy that is in all things(sounds kinda generic like star wars i know).

Well, I'm sure that could happen, but support you "theory". Don't worry everything I said is a "theory". Blah, well you, in my case, I'm not always around the PC, and half of the time I see these things in broad daylight. Sleep deprevation doesn't change you what you see, I know, because I experience sleep deprevation and but lately I've been getting a good amount of sleep.

I believe I did mention about cones and rods, but you went more indepth with it. I think this is a "possible" reason. Well I know this isn't a theory and is factual informatuib, but it's strange because I experience those things at the same time. I don't know. But it's great that you mention this, it does make alot of sense. Also, keep in mind that we barely understand how our body functions, and there are always going be discovery made that could change everything in the textbook about human. But, I think there is just more to rods and cone that could explain see strange thing some people see. You forgot to mention the role of the brain, that is still a mystery to us, and what kind of message it sends to the eye, why it filter outs certain images, why sometimes i fails to do so...and etc.

Yes, my teacher's friend was red color blind, and he didn't know he was colorblind until he went to highschool, and couldn't tell certain wires apart because some wires look the same color to him. Like if there was a red and black wire, being color blind would make them seem like they are both black colors. It's hard to explain, try and do more researcha about it.

But yea, scholor have color test for kids now a days, they just have two colors and if the kids can distinguish them apart then he or she is not colorblind but if they can't then they are.

Also some people can determine if your blind or by this one thing in you eyes, I can't remember what its called exactly though. Or they can stick a wire into your nerve and see what you see...lol these two could be wrong, but i don't know just do more research.

Probably by two different approaches: (1) dissecting they eyes of dogs and not finding any cones there; and (2) by understanding that there are ways that we can train dogs to react a certain way based on seeing a contrasting shape. If that contrasting shape was printed black-on-white and the dog reacted, then printed red-on-green or yellow-on blue (with the same luminance and brightness) and the dog didn't react, that would probably pretty good evidence that the dog is color blind.

ThANks for answering his question man, lol so that's what it was cones, lol I couldn't remember if it was cones or something else.

TONE23

You know, that would be pretty awesome...I don't know, I guess I'll make that a "theory" as well.

-----------------------------------------------

So so far here are the theories that we came up so far about seeing strange colors and strange creatures:

1) Cones and Rods - psychological reasons..instinictive mode for survivial and etc.
2) Eyes adapting and seeing more than the visible light spectrum
3) Brain failing supress etheric canals along the gross
4) Universal Energy
5) Sleep deprervation and being around the PC too much
6) Photoreceptors becoming sensative and cause are pehreial vision to become sensative catching movement we would of never notice before.
7) Cetain state of mind increase awareness allowing use to see certain things.
8) Chemical Imbalance in our body causes us to hallucinate (no drugs).

If the dog didn't react ... to red on green ... and yellow on blue are you telling me if I were to dress up in all blue ... That I dog couldn't see me ...

If so then why haven't burgurlars tried this ?? WoW ... Learn something new everyday ... I must have a special dog .. because my Tosa Inu .... or Japanese Tosa .. Whatever you want to call him ... to me he is Killer ... but ... he always sees me no matter what I have on .. no matter what the color .. Maybe he just smells me and knows I am there .. Hmmm .. Who knows .. ... This thread is not about dogs ... so I will try and wrap that up ... as far ... as ... people seeing things out of the corner of thier eyes ... Or ...


Sometimes ... I have just felt a presence in the room and turned to see my mom ... when I wsa younger .... or my dad or a cat ... And sometimes .... not very often .. only a few times .. but I have gotten the same sensation ... and turned to not see anyone stading there ... Or Just turned to see a flicker of a shadow ... I am not sure how a Shadow flickers ... but I have no other word to describe it ...
