"NORMALLYWEIRDDUDE" is not the way to be taken seriously about a very serious subject. That right away caught me...and I'd have shared many experiences and situations with you....but your screen name negated that happening. So I wont. Sorry.
PS. Its not necessarily "cute" to show your humor in an otherwise non-humorous issue. Good luck with that anyway.edit on 06-10-2010 by mysterioustranger because: (no reason given)

Well I hope you will permit a little humour as if I had explained this to anyone else, I'd have been immediately accused of "gas"!
On a serious note? You are obviously quite open minded, and as I was reading I was first considering the hypnogogic state - that between the dreamworld and waking state, where the two can become a little blurred! However, you then got up and interacted with it!!
For it to physically "evade" capture is also most bizarre, removing the likelyhood of potential environmental phenomena (although, that could never be fully ruled out of course). Also, many witnesses have described seeing clouds of smoke/gas/fog etc when experiencing a paranormal event - quite eerie I find, and even when I have done medium readings I have made it perfectly clear to my 'visitors' - if you dare show yourself, this reading is FINITO! I can be quite the scaredy cat by all accounts
Not having seen it, and taking your experience at your word (which we all must do to a large degree on here), and which I have NO reason to doubt - it is quite possibly the beginnings of a form of paranormal or spirit manifestation. This is the first time however, that I have read of someone trying to catch it!! But as I say, I have read quite a few reports as to this being the beginnings of an actual physical manifestation. I guess it could also be a strange energy form we know nothing at all about yet - so little is actually known for certain. And mentioned earlier, an evironmental phenomena is not totally out of the question - if not a quite unlikely.
Also remember, no skeptic can ever take away your own experience. You know what you saw and interacted with, how it behaved, and the impression it left you with - it is personal to you, and no-one can take that away - I am sure many of us upon this thread, and with an interest or experience in this particular field, have met with ridicule or resistance upon discussion many many times.
So the question is, how did it feel to you? I hope I have been of some assistance
Thank you for sharing your story with me - these experiences are fascinating to read about!
