Sounds definitely like corner of the eye corner of the eye phenomenon to me straight away. What is it? Well, look at something red in the room, and
you'll be more likely to notice something red out of the corner of your eye, elsewhere in the room. Researchers have known that this "implicit
attentional selection" is outside conscious control and that we are unaware of its functioning. Some say that you can see things from the other side
better out of the corner of the eye. I'm not into Biology and have never studied it at a high level (degree) for example so I don't know every
little trick the eye and the brain have together. Is it possible you saw something 'zip' past your foot from another dimension? I guess so. Is it
possible it was a reflection of a car coming into your street? I guess so. Basically it could be a number of things.
I would have said it might have been 'the shadow people,' but then you saw a ball of light, not a dark object. Nor was it human form. Those who are
experiencing and studying the shadow people phenomenon say that these entities almost always used to be seen out of the corner of the eye and very
briefly. But more and more, people are beginning to see them straight on and for longer periods of time. Some experience's testify that they have
even seen eyes, usually red, on these shadow beings.
It could have been Angelic of origins? It could not have been. I guess the incident happened so fast and it's really hard to 'pin down' what it
actually could have been, especially for you, as I expect you're really wondering and have many ideas floating around in your head. One of the many
reasons you posted here eh?
The explanation we get from skeptics and mainstream science - and who are usually people who have never experienced the corner of the eye phenomenon -
is that it is nothing more than the active human imagination. It's our minds playing tricks on us... our eyes seeing things in a fraction of a second
that aren't really there - illusions... real shadows/lights caused by passing auto headlights, or some similar explanation. And without a doubt,
these explanations probably can account for some if not many experiences. The human eye and mind are easily fooled. But can they account for all
It could simply be a ball of energy. Energy is all around us, in many shapes and forms. Everything on Earth consists of energy and you might have just
seen a ball of energy fly past you aimlessly? I've seen things in the corner of my eye - black and white balls like you have said and I've even seen
them 'zip' past cloths and rustle them so the cloth has moved! And no, it was a very, very, very calm day indoors. What are these things? Sorry I
can't give you the 100%, million dollar answer for your million dollar question.
Hope I gave you some interesting thoughts though. Post away about anything else you can remember!
