Hello all,

A friend of mine who knows im into the weird and wonderful just sent me a very clear HD video of an "Orb" filmed during his own experiments in sleep paralysis.

He indicated to me that he has had the condition since a young age and has been to sleep centres etc who cannot diagnose or pinpoint anything out of the ordinary with his sleeping state. He decided to film himself using his iPhone 4 while sleeping and the following clip at around 0:09 seconds reveals a streaming Orb gliding around the room.

youtu.be...

I asked him what was going on at the end of the video when his eyes are sort of half open before he jolts awake and he said he was trying to scream. Freaked me out to be honest!


I really admire the intelligent candor for and against all the interesting topics on this website so your analysis and interpretation of what we are looking at is appreciated.

Video says private. Sounds interesting though.
Please fix

The link you provided says that it has issues. Malformed id or something. I am interested to see this myself, as I have been suffering from whatever this is since I was a small child.

i see the orb. looks like a camera artifact of some kind or even CGI, although the more urgent question that pops into my mind is: why would he film that, and then immediately shut the camera off afterwards, unless he was going to use it for some purpose (maybe to try implementing some CGI into his short clip)...

He has been experiencing sleep paralysis since a child and is now late 20's, i think he is frustrated that professionals cannot explain or solve why he experiences what he does.

As someone who used to experience sleep paralysis for 6 years after a near death experience until puberty, i can tell you if my sleep paralysis lasted as long as his i would be doing anything to solve it, its not a desirable feeling.

Its not CGI and the orig video he sent me can be directly downloaded here for further expert analysis - rcpt.yousendit.com...

He shuts it off afterwards to view what was happening upon waking. Nothing strange about that.

Keeping in mind the ease with which photos/video can be faked, this vid was very interesting. It leads me to wonder if sleep paralysis is caused by an external force...

It definitely warrants further experiments. If similar results are recorded, I think we may have an answer.

Also, credit to OP for having some evidence (the video).

Has this video been shortened?

I'm not sure about the orb, but I definitely feel for you friend. I've had sleep paralysis my whole life and I know that feeling of wanting to scream, but not being able to move. I HATE that feeling!

I'm normally not much of a believer in orbs, but I think your friend should keep on filming himself sleeping to see if something similar happens before each sleep paralysis episode. People do often claim to feel a presence in the room with them when paralyzed, so who knows! I'm not going to completely discount it. If it continued to happen, I would be pretty close to being convinced!

What was the light source in the room?

good video. i could'nt help thinking that if the subject was in deep sleep REM etc they would have their eyes rolled back a lot more than the guy has in this video, and also they would'nt be aware of the camera as much. i'm not at all suggesting this is fake it's just a comparison to similar experiments i have seen on film

I think you will find the dude added the effect to the video.
If you watch closely after the "orb" passes.....you see the effect flash on and off just where it went out of sight.

Just another youtuber looking to make money from gullible people

So let me get this straight, he put the iphone on recording because he knew he was going to have an "episode" of sleep paralysis in the following minute? I was under the impression those things come suddenly and without warning. Also, the iphone cannot film without running out of memory for very long periods, did he start the recording before going to sleep and slept a few hours and only noticed this afterwards after going through the whole recording? In that case i would assume he shortened it just to have the "interesting" part shown in this short clip. If so, it seems abit convenient that it happened just before he awoke, does it not?

Also i can´t imagine watching a recording of myself having a full 8 hour sleep just to try to find something out of the ordinary everytime i sleep, that would take up my entire days. Or maybe this was the first time he did it and bingo?

Some clarification as this seems very far fetched...

I looked at the original version (m4v). Here is what I can conclude

Not excluding the "orb" being a paranormal event, but bare in mind that this is what I see.

From where your friend is, it looks as though he has a desk lamp above and to the left of his head. The video recorder (iPhone) seems to be placed under that lamp (or close by).

Having taken thousands of pictures, I often see odd things that creep up in my shots.

Imagine if you can, a strand of hair, or a spider's strand of silk floating in the field of view of the video recorder. As it moves it reflects some light from the lamp. It appears blurry, perhaps because the video camera is in focus with the subject and the out of focus artifact is magnified and almost translucent (orb) It has a trailing edge, or tail, because of it's angle in the air in relation with the lens. it appears to traverse the corner of the shot but in reality, the light reflection is moving along the strand of hair/silk. The orb's hue, and luminosity seems to match that of the lamp as reflected on your friend's white sheets.

If that is the case, I do wonder why we did not see a second occurrence of the "orb", but that is what I see,

An out of focus strand of something reflecting light from a desk lamp moving slowly in a way that makes it look like an unidentifiable orb of light.

The lamp was not on, it was the light from the iPhone itself.

He is middle Eastern and has pretty thick hair. I imagine if his hair was falling out it would fall as apposed to float but one cant rule out a rouge Spider silk strand or dust granule.

I don't know what it is but he had certainly not added this afterwards.

If this post gains more traction i will get a statement from him to further relay the details i have recycled bringing this to light.

I am not a regular poster and dont care for flags, trolls or attention from strangers. I just wanted some feedback in regard to what it is we are looking at so for those who are going to say CGI or Spider silk, its been said so what else could this be?

Your right, it does seem convenient. I have tried calling him just now for some clarity on this and will relay what he tells me as soon as he returns my call.

I think he was interested to view what happens as he wakes up (or tries too) when experiencing sleep paralysis so he probably skipped the vid right to he saw movement and watched prior but i will seek clarity on this.

Hold the line....
