It's ok, not a problem, just the culture of this board. We asked for a "spiritual" section but it was not in the cards.

I hope someday there is a place to share this stuff with people who can appreciate "alternative" perspectives.

I am very grateful 20Years did start this thread . . .it was good to see the other pictures.

I think more than the "rational" arguments it is the minimizing of the "invisible realms" that is discouraging.

Just out of interest, does everyone here believe that the images of orbs have only been captured by cameras , but not the naked eye?
My point is, that I have seen orbs with my own eyes on a number of occasions and at different locations, none of which fit the criteria for the theories that have been previously mentioned.

I have never heard of this but think it is most interesting! It might be akin to seeing "auras."

Can you explain your experiences or give some detail?

Yes, alright I will.

Firstly. it is not odd for me to have paranormal experiences, I have even been accused of leaving spirits behind when I have stayed somewhere, or just visited.

I have seen an orb just hovering in my living room while I watch TV, not near the TV, just inside the curtains that were closed.
In the same room, in daylight, I have had one pass right across the room in front of me and then disappear.
While staying in a caravan, I had one hover past me, between me and my suitcase, that I was looking into at the time.
There have been other occasions, but none so noteworthy.
These are not dust particles, they range from about half inch across, to maybe four inches, and are very bright.

If not what do you think they are?

This is the OP. There is no attack happening here, at least not by me. I am just telling you what I, the evidence, and most other people think orbs are...In other words I'm answering the OP's question.

Here ya go...You can believe this is a spirit, but I believe it's an insect.

And duly unprofessionally concerned for and done. Must everything in Science be reduced to language for the purpose of heaven spilling out it's indifference? Now that was professional , but badly interpreted (by me).

What insects?

Not sure what the point was of posting a video of a moth flying around. It definitely has no characteristics of an "orb."

I think that in Buddhism self-creation can be discovered. Basically that was the opinion of Koestler in the "Roots of Coincidence". But creation from the realized creator not possible. It would require a postulate for putting the observer meaningfully independent of the dynamics.

Pictures themselves are not much for the co-incidence of observer and observations made. But planning a picture taking session may. Thus the energy phenomenon is from the original creation of the idea.
