Chances are they are just my eyes playing tricks on me. The process of sight is a large equation, plenty of variables to "mess up" along the way.
So, as per my Occam Mach 5, while I see these things (regularly) chances are I am just going blind...Wait, that is my Murphy's Razor...chances are the "shadows" are just my brain trying to make sense of what input it is receiving.
Like I said from the beginning; I don't think these things are anything other than my eyes playing tricks. Though it would be neat if they were more than that.
An argument from ignorance, also known as argumentum ad ignorantiam or appeal to ignorance, is an informal logical fallacy that asserts a proposition to be either true or false merely because it has not been proven or disproven.

my girlfriend has actually picked up a "shadow hitch hiker" that she and her friend had a conversation with - pretty weird.

When I sit in the sun and focus about a meter to my front i see hundreds of independently moving and dancing pinpoints of light that seem to rush around and interact with each other. They are not floaters or flecks on my eyeball, but independent light entities. Been seeing them for about a year now. Have done some research on them and found them to be not uncommon.
