I dunno. I always have one or two flies buzzing around me, and only me, when I'm at work or in my truck.
I bath once or twice daily, put on deodorant, clean clothes.
I know they are attracted to the smell we give off when we sweat, they aren't just attracted to decay.
Now, was it large flies, small flies, blue bottle flies, ect.

I've actually read that those little swarms of gnats you see about head level just all mindlessly swarming in a compact area ... do it in that specific location because of magnetic "eddys" caused by the soul/rock in the land..
also there's a story of ... i forgot which story.. might have been the fire in the sky travis walton story...
where when the craft left..
they found thousands of flies BURNED INTO the trees surrounding where the craft was.
as if they were attracted to it.. then got blasted away fast when the craft shot off.
i've noticed many more tiny flies around me lately actually.
never ever seen ones like this before actually. they jump around robotically almost like a wolf spider .. jumping spider if you've ever seen those little guys.

I think you may need to look for words. As this is a family site, I will use the letter X as meaning sh1t.
We know what X is. But some actions people do we define as X. We have all done this at least once to get the feeling, some many times and regularly. But if you feel like this, your brain is associating X with your actions and you. And you feel X. I should add that we have backwards peristalsis in our sleep and have to brush our teeth in the morning in part to get rid of the taste of X. Now if we are alluding this in our minds, through reflection or otherwise, we are going to give off the energy of smelling X.
EDIT: This presupposes that the fly can pick up this perception. It is possible that the effect makes us secrete small amounts of X which the fly smells, or if it is responding to electro-magnetic energy that bees are proven to use and MRI scanners in hospital all show that we give off.

I hate to think this... did they come out of me?
