This will be short.
I thought about whether to post this for about a week, since it was so personal to someone that I know. I've decided to do it, and expect you folks "out there" to treat it with civility, given this is from a woman that I've known for thirty years, and who is the daughter of one of my best friends. Even though I have great confidence in the inherent goodness and common social intelligence of most of you who have been reading the blog for years, I'm not going to name her. There are jerks and trolls out there in abundance.
The narrative in brief: this youngish woman had a grade-school-age son, who recently died in a tragic accident. She is one of the tougher-minded persons about warrioring through rough patches in life that I know, but of course this death of her only child was too much for anyone to just shrug off and soldier on unaffected. I don't know how she made it through the funeral [which I attended].
A few days after that funeral, she was alone in her house when she noticed a light on the ceiling. After staring at it for awhile, she decided to get her phone and film it. [as I said, a tough-minded lady]. She filmed the light for about two minutes and then sat the "camera" aside to climb up and investigate more closely. The big deal here was: she could not block the light with her hands. The lightform was on the surface of the ceiling itself and not being "beamed in" from somewhere external. Without the context of her life, we would say only that this was an extremely anomalous light.
Here are a couple of snaps from the "movie":
A snap from the video as it came to me. The lightform stayed centered in the same spot on the ceiling throughout the 2+2 minute camera periods (after coming back down from her "testings" she filmed it for two minutes more, until it faded out --- so, whole experience was about 4minutes filmed and about three minutes elsewise.) Although centering in the same location, the form itself was quite dynamic, changing shape and sending out short streamers.
I darkened the shot here for better seeing the lightform.
A second shot --- I cropped this one to get it "closer" for you.
A second artificial darkening by me.
I don't KNOW what this was. The lady involved doesn't know either [as she's said directly to me.] But I know what both our "leading hypotheses" are, and she has taken some consolation from that.
For what it's worth......
