The wierdest thing is when you look away again, you can see them again.
It's as if we can see different 'frequencies' of energy with different parts of our retina.
Most people are unaware that we have a 'blind spot' in our vision, where the optic nerve connects to the retina. TRUE! We can't see it when we
look straight at something, but there's an experiment one can do with two dots on a piece of paper:
Draw two dots on a piece of paper about 1.5" apart. Close one eye and look at the dot on the opposite side of your open eye. Hold the paper about a
foot from your face and move it slowly closer. A few inches from your face the other dot will vanish.
Yet we never "see" a hole in our field of vision!
If you practice, you will also see that colors are different in your peripheral vision; perhaps we detect different feequencies there because they are
not overwhelmed by the 'visual spectra' as they are in the center of our visual field.
Not only are you not alone in that you detect things in your peripheral vision, you are not alone in that there ARE things there! People can even
share an experience in seeing them: when you see them, calmly look away until you see them again, and get someone else to share the same aspect, the
direction of their vision. They can see them, too!
