1 - Can you find these particles in every enviroment, such as outdoors, in the car, etc.?
No, I haven´t noticed them outdoors or in a car. There are too many light sources in the environment I´m in usually. Up to now I didn´t try to find
them out-doors. It´s a good suggestion, I´ll have a look as soon as possible.
2 - Can you photograph them?
I started to experiment with my digicam an hour ago, no joy.
I collected about 30 in a cup. They are rolling around. I can´t say if the particles distract each other (like magnets) or it´s just because of
vibrations. I´m in a hotel room situated on a busy street. The environment is not ideal.
I´ll have a try later on with particles collected on a sheet of paper, this should work out better. It´s not easy because I have no stand for the
camera and I have to do it close-up with a long shutter time.
3 - Can you influence their movement through thought?
I followed your suggestion: No success.
4 - How long have you been seeing this?
I found out in spring 2005. I read a (more scientific medical) book about human and animal video systems and was inspired to look at things more
consciously. I read about cats eyes and snakes eyes and was just curious how my video works in the dark.
5 - Is it a constant or do you have to look for it?
Of course it happens just at night and I have to look for the dots consciously.
Usually I start to recognize the soup of white/grey dots on the black background first.
These fast dots move completely random, there is no given direction.
It´s exactly like the picture you get on a tv which is not adjusted to a broadcast station and the brightness control is somewhat turned down.
I´m sure, everybody looking consciously in a dark room will have the same experience.
Next, on the background of this random, irregular pattern there are dots which stand out because they follow a straight line. These are the dots in
question. They always fly in my direction and, getting bigger the closer they come, they are easy to recognize.
6 - Do they respect the solidity of matter?
Yes, they clearly follow a straight ballistic curve, I can influence their movement by blowing at them, I can catch them, some of them crash against
walls and fall down.
7 - How do you get them in the cup?
When they drop down within reach I let them fall in my hand, or as I did this evening, I layed out a sheet of paper they fell on, bent the paper in
the middle and let them roll into the cup as you´d do with liquids or grains. This works quite well, the particles seem to be heavy.
8 - Do they expire or have a shelf life?
A good question. I observe them when I go to bed. There aren´t many on the blanket when I go to bed. They add up during time. I recognize every
single dot. I can look away and find them on their proper location again. I had to go up very early in the morning today and I saw hundreds on the
blanket. This evening, when I came back to my room, there have been about 30 on the blanket.
I´ve never seen one expire, but it seems they have to, otherwise the blanket would glow like the sheep in Whales over time.
9 - Any other pattern such as time of day,weather,etc?
First of all, I´m a musician (classical music) and on tour most of the time. I live more or less in hotel rooms or with friends. I switch time-zones
frequently. I sleep during day time sometimes. The phenomenon is always the same. All it needs is a dark room.
As for weather: The dots are not so bright now in winter. Thunderstorms, rain have no impact.
Thanks for the good questions allisoneisall !
