Things We Can’t See

When you think about it, there is a great deal out there that we can’t see.

Our eyes only respond to a very narrow range of electromagnetic radiation.  The following diagram demonstrates just how narrow our range of vision compared to the overall electromagnetic spectrum.

So we can’t see anything that generates or reflects wavelengths equal to or longer than infrared, as the following image demonstrates.  Even the Hubble Space Telescope can’t see the distant infrared galaxy that the Spitzer Space Telescope can see with its infrared sensors.

And we can’t see anything that generates or reflects wavelengths equal to or shorter than ultraviolet, as the following image from NASA demonstrates. Only instruments with special sensors that can detect ultraviolet or x-rays can see some of the objects in the sky.

Of course, we can’t see things that are smaller in size than about 40 microns, which includes germs and molecules.

We can’t see things that are camouflaged by technology, such as the Mercedes in the following picture.

Sometimes, it isn’t our eyes that can’t sense something that is right in front of us, but rather, our brain.  We actually stare at our noses all day long but don’t notice because our brains effectively subtract it out from our perception, given that we don’t really need it.  Our brains also fill in the imagery that is missing from the blind spot that we all have due to the optic nerve in our retinas.

In addition to these limitations of static perception, there are significant limitations to how we perceive motion.  It actually does not take much in terms of speed to render something invisible to our perception.

Clearly, we can’t see something zip by as fast as a bullet, which might typically move at speeds of 700 mph or more.  And yet, a plane moving at 700 mph is easy to see from a distance.  Our limitations of motion perception are a function of the speed of the object and the size of the image that it casts upon your retina; e.g. for a given speed, the further away something is, the larger it has to be to register in our conscious perception.  This is because our perception of reality refreshes no more than 13-15 times per second, or every 77 ms. So, if something is moving so fast that it passes by our frame of perception in less than 77 ms or so, or it is so small that it doesn’t make a significant impression in our conscious perception within that time period, we simply won’t be aware of its existence.

It makes one wonder what kinds of things may be in our presence, but moving too quickly to be observed.  Some researchers have captured objects on high-speed cameras, for which there appears to be no natural explanation.  For example, there is this strange object captured on official NBC video at an NFL football game in 2011:  Whether these objects have mundane explanations or might be hints of something a little more exotic, one thing is for certain: our eye cannot capture them.  They are effectively invisible to us, yet exist in our reality.

    Arthur P Guyton MD author of The Text Book on Human Physiology states that “99% of sensory input is disregarded by the brain as unimportant”. That leaves us working on 1%…And even if we were to say “wake up” and work with ten times that amount… it is still 89% left unknown. So it begs the question, What are we missing? What is in fact happening around us that we are absolutely in the dark around or about??? For example the books we have of the earliest christian era claim that angels were seen apparently quite often… what happened? Why aren’t we seeing them now? If the early paintings of saints show halos, auras, where did that information come from? Given that there was no printing press, no radio, no telephones, no centralized art school… how could so many depictions of saints from all over europe and the middle east show the same things? Halos, auras?? Why is it that today if some one says they saw and or talked with an angel they are considered strong candidates for being institutionalised…???
    What are we not seeing, smelling, tasting, hearing or feeling? Maybe the dark ages are simply a little more technical… and we are still in the dark ages,,, just different. Certainly we are in the dark about ourselves and most of that which may or may not be all around us? No wonder we are so easily led by fancy talk and advertising.

    Great article, I long felt there are things observing us we can’t see. If they have tech that overcomes inertia, such as a craft that constantly projects its own gravity ahead of itself, then truly they could zip around like fleeting shadows. I have an interesting hi-speed video from near large water reserviours in England recently taken at 600 frames-per-second, through polarized light. Whatever it was that was filmed, it quickly went ‘invisible’ to the eye, but is clear on the video – and appears to flash as it interacts with the fine grid of the polarizer filter. Search youtube for ‘UFO Denshaw’ its pretty easy to find.

    Andromeda Council – Reptilian base in Gulf of Aden
    In a report on the Draco and Hydra reptilian base in the Gulf of Aden published Oct. 26, 2011, the Andromeda Council representative stated (in part),
    “[The reptilian undersea base] is located in the area of the Gulf of Aden. This gulf is located in the Arabian Sea between Yemen, on the south coast of the Arabian Peninsula, and Somalia in the Horn of Africa.
    “In the northwest, it connects with the Red Sea through the Bab-el-Mandeb strait, which is about 20 miles wide. Because of what I’ve learned from my Andromedan contacts about this matter, I did some research & found out that the Gulf of Aden is already a dangerous area known as “Pirate Alley” because of the historically large amount of pirate activities located here. I’ve sent you a Google photo & a simple map of this area. As you may or may not know the “vortex” phenomena also happened in this body of water, the Gulf of Aden.

    “Further, my Andromedan contacts have told me this base is deep, thousands of feet underwater, about a mile & a half (1&1/2) deep. And this base has for years beamed a very specific, highly irritating & highly agitating, fear based & anger inducing, attenuated sonic frequency’ right at the area of the Middle East, due North-Northeast’ to keep the people in this area in a constant, high state of emotional confusion, fear, agitation, anger & aggression.
    “They’ve shown me, there is a transmitter that literally rises out of the ceiling of this base, much like a periscope in a submarine, and it rotates. A particular frequency is chosen which turns people against each other. Then the Reptilians turn it on. They turn it on almost every day.

    However, if people were underwater, or standing on the land, they would not be able to see this frequency, this beam, with their own eyes. It’s sonic, a sound frequency. And, it’s out of our spectrum. But, this is how the Reptilians dominate & control these people. This particular base has been in operation about 5,000 years.
    And the highly agitating sonic vibratory energies beamed from this base also reach as far as, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, ..and a bunch of other countries in the region, including Israel and Palestine.
    This is powerful technology that is very far ranging, reaches a very long distance’ serious long-range capability. And it only takes about 15 minutes of operation, of this transmitter being on & activated’ for people in this area to start to feel its effects.

    Explains a lot doesn’t it….”
