Yes I understand that the brain has something like 10 watts of power and I have read what you have said about neural discharges giving off 5 – 50
millionths of a volt.
Even if such an event were to occur what mechanism would allow it to manifest itself in a digital image? I am not sure what the voltage is on a single
CCD pixel, but even if it was low enough to allow the discharge to corrupt its data it surely would not be strong enough to get through the cameras
shielding? This leaves the lens aperture and that was pointing away from myself. Interesting thought though. Bit like using good old film as a
radiation detector I suppose!!
I see what you mean about a face it looks like its in stone and looks glum. But I believe it just to be smears on the glass. I “sense” nothing
Yes, it was a speculative over the shoulder shot. I often do these by habit. Often of course you yell, “flash” to allow others to preserve their
night vision. This occasion was fortunate in that I was totally alone… from living humans in any case.
Occam's Razor eh? Yes, the dust particle.
Well that is what I have been trying to establish.
If it is a single particle of “stuff” I cant be sure of size, distance or speed. Using the picture framed in the camera viewfinder and a ruler I
have reckoned the anomaly travelled a visual arc equating to around 1 cm at 10 cm distance, which equates to about 2.3 kph. I suppose a fast moving
dust particle could move at 64 cm per second not sure of the turn though. I reckoned on 10cm being the closest an object could get to the camera and
still be illuminated by the built in flash. I reckon the maximum distance was around 10ft / 3metres and this figure extrapolates to a distance
travelled of approx 30 cm…. nearly 70 kph!!! LOL though my math isn’t good.
These figures are just a guesstimate. I will, when I have time, experiment a little more.
As you say it is a picture. I was not exhausted; I only had the “goldfish bowl” feeling I mentioned on page 2-second post. I did not see anything
with the eye itself. Like you say I cannot see how even a total discharge of brainwaves would affect the camera…and I did not have a seizure!!!
Is it dust, hair, fibre, cobweb, moth, orb or spirit. I still don’t know.
Is it paranormal? Well the reason for posting here is the fact that I had that strange feeling just prior to the pic and that the previous 23 photos
show no anomalies.
I know the mind plays tricks and I do wonder if some paranormal experiences are the result of over active imagination. Lets face it; all our
perceptions of the world around us are the result of our imagination and our own biases, interpreting information. Like those ink blot pictures we
don’t all see things through the same eyes. Some people will never get those magic eye pix.
I have had strange feelings, seen and heard stuff that I am not sure of. But is it imagination or a manifestation?
I have for years scoffed at a lot of this paranormal stuff. I would like to believe but all there ever really is is another fallible human beings
experiences witnessed by other fallible human beings or some dodgy photo / video.
The night of this picture in another room I saw what I can only call a mist, about half a metre wide, at around head height, that quickly moved for
about three metres left to right, it was a dark room but it is as if the mist was illuminated for a second or so. I am aware that I saw “it” but
have no idea what “it” was. There was no artificial lighting around that area. I went to investigate the spot. While standing there I felt a
coolness down my spine…possibly because I felt a little unnerved at what I had seen I don’t really know. Then above me in my peripheral vision I
say an illuminated greyness, I looked up but it was gone. Was it all imagination? I will never know.
The way I see it we are all the centre of our own personal universe and its rules are what we want them to be…well sometimes…LOL.
Thanks all for your interest
