Sceptical occult experimenter here. However, I was doing no experiments and had not been for some time when I started seeing darting shadows around my
house. At first I had wondered if it wasn't something with my eyes, as a few years earlier I was seeing the normal floaters (darting lights) we see
as we get older and the lenses of our eyes deteroriate. For me, I dismissed it, and I would be lying in my bed in the semi-darkness lit by a
nightlight, in my own thoughts, and I would see something that appeared to be a small shadow dart by.
Eventually, the frequency increased, to where I could focus (a gaze, you could say) on something in the room, and I would see these darting shadows
here and there, sometimes directly in my gaze. One night I was lying with my face away from the light coming from my nightlight, and something
appeared to go across the light, not making it black out completely, but enough that I was fairly sure it wasn't an insect either, as this was
winter, and a fly or something of that nature would have been distinguishable, I believe. It looked like something had went past the light, not a
power outage or the light going out. In any case, it got to the point where I could just sit and watch these shadows darting about every night, dozens
of times, never really able to focus on them as they move so fast, where they were going and where they were appearing from I could not answer.
I would add that I have animals that appeared oblivious to the phenomena in the room, and also that I never felt any sort of 'presence', or any fear
or apprehension for that matter. Throughout this period I never took it seriously, really. I felt it was at least possible that it was my aging eyes,
and I still think it's at least a possibility. I can tell you there were many times I was lying there, not thinking about shadows at all, when I
would see something nearly a foot from my face dart by, which always took my by surprise.
Eventually they went away on their own, I guess, as I never did anything to clear them out, and I rarely see them now. Earlier this year I 'cleaned'
the place pretty thoroughly just to be on the safe side.
There is an episode of Ghost Adventures where they use motion detectors and catch a darting shadow on video, and I can tell you that whatever they
captured on film is exactly the sort of stuff I was seeing. Very quick, smallish darting shadows.
