the five subtle properties of Energy or Matter; the five subtle energies whose action puts the sensory consciousness in relation to the gross forms of matter: sound, touch, form, taste and smell; [sometimes considered to be the five elemental states of substance (pancabhuta)
]Life force, which flows through the nadis , getting recharged at the chakras . Yogananda has described prana as "lifetrons" - finer-than-atomic energies which have inherent intelligence, as opposed to atoms and electrons, which are considered to be blind forces. The Chinese call this life force chi . Living beings take in prana from the food we eat, the air we breathe and sunshine. Yoga postures, correct breathing techniques and meditation all affect the flow of prana through the body
]The discourse is on "Microvitum, the Mysterious Emanation of Cosmic Factor." It is one human characteristic that whatever we do not know, in order to conceal our limitations or hide our imperfections, we either say that it is non-existent, or in a more intelligent style, we will say it is abstract. In this universe. of ours, whatever comes within the scope of our senses or within the periphery of our perception, we say, "It is," and whatever is beyond the arena of the senses or the jurisdiction of perception, we cannot say anything. Hence, our world functions within the limitations of our senses and perceptions. We know in the realm of cosmic extrovert, in the first phase -- that is, in the phase of extrovert -- 'subtle' is transmuted into 'crude', and in the returning phase of introvert, 'crude' is metamorphosed into 'subtle'. In this progress, rather in this semicircular approach, there may be subtler objects in the scope of matter -- many objects subtler than electrons or protons, neutrons or positrons -- but we find no alternative but to say that they are either electron or proton or positron or neutron. And similarly, in the psychic sphere there may be entities subtler than ectoplasm or its extra-psychic coverage, endoplasm.
There are entities which come within the realm of both physicality and psychic expressions which are smaller or subtler than atoms, electrons or protons, and in the psychic realm may be subtler than ectoplasm. For such objects or for such entities I use the term "microvitum". This microvitum, or in plural microvita, are not of protoplasmic order, and as such they have got little to do with carbon molecules or carbon atoms, which are treated as the initial points or initial stage of life in this universe. So far as physicality is concerned, the position of these microvita is just between ectoplasm and electron, but they are neither ectoplasm nor electron.

I am trained in logic my friend, and I have a BA in philosophy and cultural studies, and specialised later in philosophy of scence. I could out-logic most people, especially pseudoskeptics, who write fallacy after fallacy and would fail a simple logic exam.
The OP and others here, including myself are describing a phenomena, which has the following properties:
1. They are vivid multicoloured lights
2. They that move erratically in a zig-zaging motion, appearing and disappearing in different locations and behave indepedently of the observer
3. They are very special phenomenon and only take place under certain conditions. They are seen in all lighting conditions.
A logical explanation for the phenomena with the described properties would have to be able to explain all the properties consistently, only then can it qualify as a logically vallid explanation.
So why exactly can't this be a natural hallucinogen produced by the brain triggering these experiences? What are the certain condtions that take place?
I have yet to hear one reason why this couldn't be the result of abnormal brain biochemistry.
Also, if they are moving in a zig-zag motion, appearing and disappearing in different locations, how could you possibly be certain that "it behaves" independently of the observer?! What you describe seems without pattern, so this observation would be unjustifiable.
