This reminds me of "shadow rats". At least thats what we used to call em up in NY.
People see them out of the corner of thier eye for a split second. Black objects sometimes people say they look like rats, or cats, or small dogs.
Once in a while they'll say it was a small person.
It's more prevalent in places like drug detoxes and pshyc wards, because of so many sleep deprived people coming off meds/being put on new meds--
there's alot of people who haven't slept for days.
Anyone can see these, especially if your overworked, stressed , but especially if you aren't sleeping well.
It's a trick of the brain. No pshychic phenomena here in my opinion.
Try not sleeping for a week and tell me what you start seeing. Your dreams start to manifest themselves, while your awake, first with shadows, then
well it can get pretty scary from what I've heard if you don't sleep for a good 5-7 days, I'm talking ZERO sleep. Because they (your dreams) have
to have "stage time" in the brain for the subconcious to funtion properly.
Now I'm not saying this accounts for all of this Shadow people stuff, but it might account for some of it.
But alot of people who are seeing these things are awake at night, can't sleep because they are afraid of the "shadow people", unknowingly, they
are causeing the phenomena by depriving themselves of sleep.
That's my theory anyhow.
