What are they? Why do they appear in view of the camera playback, when we don’t see them with the naked eye, but only sometimes in our peripheral vision? What do they want? Are they dangerous, or merely beings observing us? Are they alien beings, and where do they come from?
It seems no one has really answered these questions concerning shadow people, but the ones I have seen were always looking around a door frame, as if wondering what I was doing, and why!
Wikipedia defines them:
“A shadow person (also known as a shadow figure, shadow being or black mass) is the perception of a patch of shadow as a living, humanoid figure, particularly as interpreted by believers in the paranormal or supernatural as the presence of a spirit or other entity. Many methamphetamine addicts report hallucinations of “shadow people”, as a result of sleep deprivation.”
People who report seeing the shadow people phenomenon say that these entities almost always used to be seen out of the corner of the eye and very briefly. But more and more, people are beginning to see them straight on and for longer periods of time. Some experiencers testify that they have even seen eyes on these beings, usually red.
On a tour of the underground catacombs in the Orillia Huronia Regional Center, a colleague and I were taking pictures. On examining the pis when I got home, there was a shadow person clearly seen peering at us from a doorway. Although the original photo was lost thanks to a computer crash that wiped everything off, the shadow appeared very similar to this:
While both of us had the distinct feeling of being watched, we were not fearful.
Some people say they believe shadow people to be evil. Personally, I don’t think they all are, but just like a vengeful ghost and a benevolent ghost exists, I feel it is the same with shadow people.
