I can see minute internal molecules/particles in air with my NAKED EYES. what I do?

    Here is a pretty good labeled diagram of the human eye.


    Labels for the numbers of the different parts are further down on the page. From inside out there is the retina and then right next to it the choroid, which is layers of blood vessels. You can see some of these blood vessels, through the retina, very clearly by pictures taken of the back-side of the eye, taken through the pupil with front-side illumination (I have quite a collection of similar pictures that I keep at my doctor's office, which rival my Babylon 5 playing card collection!). Here is a pretty good picture of it:


    That the choroid can affect and plays a part in what a person sees is documented here:


    Under the paragraph "Mechanism" it talks of the effects of light reflection within the choroid layer (behind the retina). It is interesting to read that that is a cause of the "redeye" effect in photographs, and the "light-shine" effect that you see in some animal's eyes, for instance cat eyes.

    So, all of this is to show that the anatomy of the eye is complex, and how light rays interact in the eye is complex too.

    Yes I see them too, sometimes. I had always assumed they were tiny fibres (from my clothes, carpets in the house etc) floating in the tear fluid on the surface of my eye, as they seem to be moved by the action of blinking. Occasionally I see such fibres on contact lenses, when putting them in or removing them.

    That's interesting. Mine are much the same, kinda like filaments, and fibers as you say. Squinting seems to make them more pronounced for me, but then you have to be careful to make sure you are not seeing though your eyelashes (or maybe light diffraction around the eyelashes??). If you try the "squinting" thing, wait until you see a rather large one and then open your eye fully, real fast, and of course look/project it onto a light colored wall. You (I) see that one a very long time until it floats out of your field of view. They are way more feature-rich that way than just opening and keeping your eye fully open and waiting for one of them to go by. But, I don't think mine are on the cornea as blinking doesn't change them.

    Fibers on your contact lenses? Could they be just lines of fluid smears where the fluid is not enough to coat the entire lens and so you see the line of where the fluid ends/dry portion begins? That's interesting.

    [EDIT] I should have added that when you are squinting, trying to get the filamentary structures to appear, keep the other eye closed, and also you should be looking at a light source, like an overhead light in the room. Then when you fully open your eye, move your gaze to a featureless light-colored wall.

    Quantum filaments and unknown strings.
    Floating, floating, what are these things?

    Why dear lord, have you granted such gifts,
    each time I go looking, I look and it shifts.

    I see all dimensions including fourth and fifth,
    I see all the strings, I watch how they drift.

    That's just the Matrix code.

    hey golden_eyes ...

    those that do not understand.. well, they instead criticize. That being said, you are not seeing floaters, or particles inside your eyes, nor are you crazy. Do i think we are going to change the world? probably not. Will you find anyone to listen and research what we are seeing? probably not. Attempting to convince people of things that they cannot experience will only leave you explaining to no end that you are not misinterpreting some other common phenomena.
    I think i might see the same thing as you. I can see it everywhere i focus, and it isnt difficult to see. I simply attributed it to possibly seeing wifi particles or something.. its not dust. it travels at very high speeds and much like a river flow, and other times It looks almost like a very light rain shower, but you cannot feel it. It travels around (up, over, down) other objects if they are in the way of its path.. and you can disturb the flow by disrupting the air towards its direction. Oh.. and the strangest part.. it travels straight through glass. I live in Nyc, and my last apartment had floor to ceiling windows. Well, i used to sometimes watch it at night flow past half of my windows exterior, and then much like the riverflow, it would make a sharp turn through the glass and towards my wifi, my laptop, my cell, etc.. and once inside it would branch off to many other directions.. strangest thing ive ever seen.
    im not crazy, im just a designer living in NYC. This is real..lol.

    If you really wish to change the world I suggest you somehow convince a scientist to investigate your claim

    My puny 3 neurone brain can think of a few methods by which your claim could be checked

    I do note you state you might be seeing WiFi and it travels very fast (WiFi or not)

    Can you be a little more specific as to the speed and how you estimate it?

    Are you focused on a section of it as it passes affixed point?

    Baited breath waiting on your ground breaking physics changing revelations

    actually, i switched to a more productive forum at the University of Illinois Physics' page. Perhaps you might want to spend as much time learning about this ever-changing universe as you do limiting yourself to what you have been taught. Then you won't walk around with your foot in mouth.
  12. Michael 345 Valued Senior Member

    I'm guessing from your reply you do not have a suitable answer

    Referral to another forum without a link is not exactly helpful so I won't bother looking for your more productive forum

    And with foot in mouth I will hop away and sulk in abject misery

    I don't know, that sounds pretty crazy.
    You see a stream of WiFi particles flowing to your laptop?

    You may want to consult a real optometrist.

    As a side-thought, if you applied at this university with an OP of this thread, You would be rejected. The OP title is contradictory in its very structure.
    "I can see minute internal molecules/particles in air with my NAKED EYES. what I do?"

    What on earth does that mean?

    I have the makings of a short story in my port folio, where a guy discovers the ultimate particle - smaller than quarks, smaller than strings. It must be the final piece of the puzzle of the universe.

    He comes back the next day and discovers it's all changed. He realizes God is barely one step head of us humans in creating the universe as we discover it.

    He suddenly realizes that there is no point to scientific discovery. It isn't about discovering what is, it isn't even about peeling back the layers of God's 'great design' - there is no design. He realizes that God is making it up as he goes. So he burns his lab to the ground.

    Sounds interesting

    May I humbly suggest you also consider writing a plot twist

    (or even a alt Universe version)

    where the guy

    on finding everything has changed since

    his discovery of the ultimate particle

    sets out to get two steps ahead of god

    He manages to do so and so in the process

    BECOMES the new god

    The old god then explains

    "I was like you years ago. Now you have become me I can piss off. You keep the Universe running or you die. You only need to keep changing it until someone cottons on and becomes you then you can piss off. Good luck"

    Sorry if I intruded

    I've a totally different book in progress but your plot intrigued me

    Heh. If it weren't already the plot of a Twilight Zone episode and at least one movie...

    I have more practical idea. I would hire myself out as a mobile electron microscope. named ;
    Microscope Man..

    Look up at the sky

    It's Microscopic Man

    Able to see WiFi with his naked eyes

    And I think it's gonna be a long long time
    'Till touch down brings me round again to find
    I'm not the man they think I am at home
    Oh no no no I'm Microscopic Man
    Microscopic Man burning out his fuse up here alone

    Sorry Elton

    I am so glad to know that I'm not the only one seeing those tiny dots moving around like little bugs in the air
