I seem to have got some intelligent responses to my posts. I suppose that you have earned this one that I was debating about posting.
About two years ago I saw something that I still can not explain. I compose classical music. I am 100% self-taught. Sometimes I just keep going deep into the night because my creative juices are blasting. One night I was composing in my DAW [Digital Audio Workstation] on my desktop computer. Suddenly I noticed something moving behind me. It was a semi-spherical globe with half white/orange light like a candle. It was moving in the air in a parabolic motion above my right shoulder. It was high enough to be awkward if I had tried to leap up and touch it. It kept moving a bit like how a planet moves.
I was sat in my chair. I thought what on earth. I saw the time on my PC: 3 am precisely in the dead of night. I kept watching it moving and it lasted for a minute and a bit. Then it seemed to fade or vanish. The time by then was 3:01 and a bit am. I was open mouthed: what was that? It didn't scare me much. But it perplexed me.
Yes, I am fully aware of all the 3 am stories and the photos of "orbs". I didn't photograph it. I don't have a phone; I hate them. Yes, I am that kind of tech dinosaur. I was a total skeptic towards both orbs and the whole 3 am motif. I am still a skeptic. But let's try some of the probable explanations...
- light reflection. They don't last over a minute,.
- truck coming past and shining through my windows. Yes, I live near a highway. But it was from inside my house and truck lights last about 10 seconds and I know what they look like. It wasn't that.
- fireflies. No. Don't get them where I am. Didn't look like any insect anyway.
- Tiredness/eye strain etc. No. It wasn't like any of that.
I could go on and on. But to be concise, nothing probable works. We are left with the improbable. Was it Sherlock Holmes who said that when the probable is eliminated only the improbable remains? To me that leaves two explanations that are outside of the esoteric/occult.
- Ball Lightning. Controversial whether it is lightning at all; it seems to occur indoors. It didn't look like the ball lightning in documentaries.
- I was using so much energy composing music that maybe the sphere was an output of my own creative energy.
I stress that these are very improbable. But to me only the improbable is left.
If those don't cut it then ONLY then would I consider occult/esoteric ideas like orbs. Yes, for all the scientists in the thread who will say "one observation" does not scientifically prove anything, you are 100% correct.
