They live among us (Orb followup synchronicity)

“The tiny probes I’m talking about will be so inconspicuous that it’s no surprise that we haven’t come across one. It’s not the sort of thing that you’re going to trip over in your back yard. So if that is the way technology develops, namely, smaller, faster, cheaper and if other civilizations have gone this route, then we could be surrounded by surveillance devices.”

Paul Davies quoted by Technoccult, also citing several studies on yhe possibility of microscopically organized life, even on a quantum level.
So, it is possible (it has always been possible, it is just that now science has begun to ponder the possibility) that alien life forms have always been with us. It is possible that they landed, but nobody took notice. The slow moving behemoths occupying the planet had no chance of even thinking about the scale, or even the time-frame of the alien intelligence. They are just too fast to be caught. Just not as fast a s a flash on a camera.
Tiny orbs, specks of dust displaying intricate patterns, dismissed as focal artifacts end depth of field plays. Tiny crafts, tiny beings, large scale consequences. Now, that's a trip..

Orbs and their reality (or ours)

Reading an article about orbs, the mysterious lights sometimes appearing in photographs, I was reminded of how little we know of the world surrounding us. Let's face it: Despite using fancy words like quantum shift, planes of existence, perichoresis and particle index of refraction, our perception of the reality surrounding us is at best fuzzy. Orbs could be the most overlooked phenomenon ever, providing glimpses on the 11th universe impaling our own, according to the m-theory of quantum physics. Or they could be little windows to the Middle Kingdom, the home of the Faery. Or they could be the souls of the dead. Or they could be tiny short-lived portals. Or they could be anything.
Most likely they could be particles of dust catching the light, but that cannot be proven either. Oh the irony. Being an image professional, I have never seen a lens that can focus on a couple of meters, and still show the intricate detail of an object millimeters from the lens in all its fractal beauty. Or a flash bulb that can make a dust particle shine like a small sun but still leave white objects semi-dark. Or dust that can refract light and create a lens flare, where sources of light fail to do so.
I know nothing conclusive about orbs, but it seems that nobody else does anyway..
