  1. Email me dragoon349@gmail.com it's about the "living light" as I call it.

  2. Here's the links guys! Courtesy of the board member who pm'd me, Di: See what you all think. It sounds pretty much like what I see, and the explanation of it seems to make sense to me. I'm about 70:30 on or more on this being the explanation for it. Di's 100% convinced herself. Clayton, your description sounds the same as mine apart from one or maybe two things - I'm not sure if they appear and dissapear (rather they just seem to move around), and I don't believe they appear at different distances like your's - my ones all seem to be at or around the same distance (I think, but I haven't done it for a few weeks, so this is going from memory). I will look at them again soon, and let you know on these points.
  3. Radiohead - firstly, cool name (I'm a fan too). Secondly, yep, your experience sounds pretty much like the same thing I, Losfomot, and Clayton seem to get (plus someone else who pm'd me), making 5 of us on the board so far. Like you, I wouldn't explain my ones as flashes either, but rather specks of light. I'm so pleased other people seem to know what I mean, and I'm also pleased that we all seem to be pretty fascinated with them, and share a desire to find out what they are. Some of the things you've experienced, like seeing them when you close your eyes, and making pictures out of them, I haven't noticed as yet, but I haven't tried, so I'll think I'll do some experiments to find out, and let you know. Clayton, thanks for the pm. I think I probably have my e-mail facility here shut off. Anyway, sounds like you're "one of us" too, my friend! I'm afraid no one (as far as I know) has found out what they are yet, which only deepens the mystery, I guess. Check your pm box. Maybe any of us who want to can start looking more thoroughly on the internet for some info - eye/vision/optical sites and maybe other scientific sites might be good for starters. If any of us come up with anything, do post links and/or info to let us all know. Probably speak to you soon guys. EDIT: A pm I've recieved has some very interesting info on it - the person who pm'd me says they read a posting by an eye doctor on a site that explains the light specks as blood moving through the vessels in the eyes. I've asked her for a link, which I will of course put up if it's forthcoming. Could this be our answer?
  4. Sorry it's took me so long to reply to the latest here guys, but I haven't been on the board for a while (and didn't really expect any more, to be honest!). Anyway, thanks again to everyone for all the latest input. I had a look at that Visual Snow board, but from what I can decipher from the posts I've looked at, I don't think what I see comes under that, though I couldn't actually find anything there with an overview of what the symptoms of that condition are, so I can't rule it out. Maybe I'll do a post to see if others there experience what I do. So thanks for that Molotov. Losfomot - I'm quite excited as your description sounds almost exactly the same as what I see! That's the time when I notice them most too - looking up at a blue sky with unfocused eyes (though I tried under a grey cloudy sky the other day, and that worked too, though it took a little longer to see them, and they weren't as clear). I like your description of them as like virtual particles - I once spoke to a man who said that he could see light particles; I don't know whether that's even possible, but I did wonder if he was maybe seeing the same things I do. I can't say for sure if my ones pop out of existence after a short while like you described, but as I'm sure as you'll appreciate, it's pretty hard to keep looking at individual ones, due to their small size and speed (though I will try to find out next time I see them). Like you, I see at least a hundred of them in my field of view at any one time (and probably many more actually). One interesting thing I've just thought of that I haven't said as yet is that they appear to equally spaced out - I never see any big gaps appear between them, or any noticeable masses of them, or indeed collisions. I don't exactly know what age I first noticed them at, but it was certainly before adulthood. Anyway, maybe we should pm or e-mail to talk more about them? I'm really pleased someone knows what the hell I'm on about! Thanks for the latest, guys.
  5. "Platonic", and I'm thinking this will be a very short thread..
  6. Hi, I am having trouble understanding some things. Firstly why is Piebald trait related to a gene on an autosome and not an X chromosome? The mother is the carrier of the trait and the father is not, they have 4 children, 3 of them (2 sons and one daughter) are affected and 1 isn't (another daughter). What would be the chance be of one of the affected sons passing the trait down to his children? I worked it out to be 1 in 4 chance but I am not so sure now. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks.
  7. My faves lately are Led Zeppelin, REM, Sonic Youth, James Brown, various blues artists (particularly John Lee Hooker), Queens of the Stone Age and Radiohead.
  8. Coquina - Yep, I'm fairly sure they only happen when I'm outdoors. I've only seem them in the daytime, and I think I can see them when it's cloudy, but I usually notice them more when it's sunny. I can't see them anymore when I close my eyes One thing I forgot to mention is that I have to let my eyes go out of focus to see them, and it's not just something that happens randomly, as I can actually see them at will, by doing this. I know what you mean about the flashing lights after bumping your head, but I wouldn't say it's like that much, or at all. Ed84c - what I get doesn't seem much like the dark patches in your first example, but your second example sounds a bit more like what I get, from the way you described them as squiggles, though my ones don't seem to make a black hole, or disturb my vision afterwards. Swansont - thanks very much for the link. I thought I was onto something when I saw the name of it was "flashes and floaters", but after reading it, I'm pretty sure that what I see are not light flashes as described on that page. They don't seem like the description given there, and also, the flashes they are describing seem to all be related to things going wrong with the eye, whereas I have been seeing these things for as long as I remember and have never had anything medically wrong with my eyes (short-sightedness aside). Bettina - I'm not actually concerned that I might have anything wrong with my eyes, more curious as to what these things are, really. But I'll certainly take you're advice and ask about them next time I have an eye check. Why I haven't thought of that before is beyond me! Thanks very much for your replies so far everyone.
  9. I wear glasses most of the day, except usually when I'm reading, as I don't need them for that, and it feels like I'm resting my eyes by not using them for a while. I wore contacts for a few years, as as a vain teenager and early twentysomething, I couldn't bear the thought of looking "geeky". I got a pair of glasses to wear around the home though, for when my lenses were in rinse, and over the years I just started to wear them more and more, as they didn't require all the tiresome cleaning and putting in/removing time that contacts do. As I've got older, I guess I've developed more confidence, less worries about how people perceive me, and a realisation that at the end of the day, it's your personality that really is the most important thing. Not only that, but I think that glasses can look pretty good, anyway. So for me, it's glasses all the time now. //-O-O-\\
  10. I've looked on sites the internet, but haven't been able to find out about these little darting specks of light that I see when I look up towards the sky. They don't appear to be in the sky, but are more like somehow produced in the actual eye, as I believe they move with the movement of my eyes. They're not "floaters", as they look very different to them (much brighter, for starters). I've never noticed them when I've been indoors, so I think that bright natural light is a factor. So, kind friends, can I ask a few questions of anyone willing to answer any of them, and maybe help me out? : -Firstly, and most crucially, does anyone know what they are? -Do you see them? -Does everyone see them? -Can anyone provide a good link about them? Thanks in advance for any help.
  11. Creation as in procreation, new life, babies, new-born animals, seeds growing to fully formed plants etc. Do they all use existing atoms and molecules? If so, please forgive my lack of knowledge in this area.
  12. I don't know about the powering up a spaceship bit, but doesn't nature create matter from energy all the time, i.e. via the creation process and new cell growth? Maybe we could somehow learn from nature if we wanted to create new matter.
