Nope. It might make sense to you, but that doesn't mean it's true.

Deny Ignorance, as they say.

The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence.

I suggest you look over your quoting of the "deny ignorance" slogan. Just because there is only little empirical evidence of the stuff doesn't mean it isn't there.

Can you please provide evidence that this phenomenon doesn't exist? Or would you like to continue to simply deny others' account simply to give yourself a chance to flood a thread with one line posts?

exactly just because one dosnt see or feel or experence it does not mean that it does not exist, trying telling that to someone who has seen and expereinced,

life is an illussion and a game of choice

Yeah, and we could all be living on top of a giant turtle, with sixteen heads, and it explodes every fifteen minutes. We just can't see it. And I believe it! Just because evidence is absent, doesn't mean evidence of absence!

But that still makes me an ignorant fool!

I can kind of see in the infrared...like a faint red glow whenever infrared diodes are on.
I thought I was crazy but then i had asked my astronomy professor if that was even possible and she said yes because she could see it too.
I can also pick up slight vibrations from objects but nothing to the extent of auras...
so yup.

Test these diodes, chances are it'll turn out that they're emitting some red light.
This is interesting, keep us posted.

That is interesting! Well i have the ability to see auras as i said on another post but i have never met anyone who can see infrared. I also have extreme empathy which means i can sometimes feel what the people around me feels, i was at a hospital visiting my grandad, and i phsically felt ill. Sometimes its a good thing because i can immediately feel that someone is upset angry, tired, ill and can talk to them and help them out and it is quite rewarding!

Interesting I sometimes wonder what over creatures we might co exist with on this earth if we could only see them.

I heard about this illusion and vibration theory and I believe it derives from quantum physics, that everything is made up of atoms but as you start to unravel an atom some sort of duel existence occurs one of matter and one of energy which vibrate so fast they give of the illusion of solidity. Of course that could all be a crock of crap as Johnmike so eloquently put it, but who then really knows Horatio.

Most certainly a head trip, so how come we all see blue as blue?

Here is an ATS google search on synesthesia

Good question Ryan Lloyd

I once read an article about reality.
1 second of reality has about 400.000 bits (or some like that) but your brain can only process 2.000 bits per second. See we're missing alot!!

Where did you hear this? That is fascinating! Is it true we only use 10% of our brains? because if someone finds a way of using the other 90% then maybe we could see everything. We would probably go insane though

After some of the experiences I have had over the years, I truly believe that there is a lot more out there that we do not see, feel or smell but somehow, on some almost subconscious level, detect.

An example.
Several years ago I lived with my younger brother, a friend of ours and my faithful hound in an apartment. A series of unsettling events, lasting several months, affected all 4 of us (pooch included). At the time I thought it was just me and the hound but, sometime later it turned out my friend and my brother were experiencing the same thing but we never mentioned it to each other for fear of seeming a little warped / scared.


So, the scenario - this always happened when we were alone in the apartment.
From the lounge there is a long corridor with the bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen leading off to the left and right with a bedroom at the opposite end of the corridor.
On several occasions I'd be sitting at my pc or watching tv and then get up to go to the bathroom or kitchen. I'd get as far as the threshold of the lounge door and stop, unable to go any further. This was always accompanied by an terrifying sense of dread and, as if there was some force holding me back, I could not move another inch through the doorway. My old hound would hide behind me staring intently along to the far end of the corridor with a low growl and his hackles up. The outcome was always the same - back away and go sit down again. A short while later I'd just get up and walk straight out as if nothing had happened.
I would have written this off as me being a little weird had it not transpired some time later that my brother and friend were experiencing the same events, as well as Zeus (pooch) acting scared and nervous too.

I have always thought that there was something there, not seen or felt but there nevertheless, that we were somehow aware of. I am still in the same apartment and, thankfully, those events have not been repeated or I would probably have packed up and left a long time ago.


So, do I believe there things we cannot see? HELL YEAH!

It sounds to me like some sort of voodoo. People who follow the occult would put powdered brick or sand across a doorway in which they didn't want their "enemy" or "victim" to cross.

It could also be a number of other endless possibilities but it sounds interesting!

Well, I can say from experience that there are things that we can't see. I do remember reading once about the light spectrum and how we can't see everything because not all matter is visible on the light spectrum.

What I saw, could be described as a spiritual being, or extra-dimentional, or however you would like to describe it.

And the light spectrum theory makes sense to me.

Here's a thought...

What if something doesn't exist until you see it? What if discovering is really creating? Would you even notice the difference?

It seems that no matter how far we look into a telescope or microscope, we see something. How far does it go? Well, how far does the imagination go? Think of your dreams.

So then, back to the original question of "what can't our eyes see?" How about this: they don't see what we haven't thought of and understood yet. So it can be anything really, preferably something positive.

No, that's an urban legend.

This doesn't make sense. Only thing is stuff like...glass, or something that doesn't reflect at all would just be black.

Ok, Just because you dont believe in something, doesnt make it wrong. Some forms of matter cant be seen in the visible light spectrum, just like some forms of light cant be seen by our eyes.

When you say only stuff like glass and things that dont reflect light are black isnt completely right, if it didnt reflect light, we wouldnt see it at all. and glass reflects lots of light, although it is semi transparent, depending on what glass your talking about.

...Which is what it means for something to be completely black.

That doesn't make any sense... giving something a "bit rate" is merely measuring a continuous signal in discreet measurements. Reality does not have a "bit rate".
