The "Even IF" Rationale from the book Orbs by Klaus Heinmann PHD
Quote "Even if all orbs in our photos could be proven to be nothing other than normal physical reflections of the flash at airborne particles, it could still be argued that the mere circumstance that we see these orbs in photos and positions that are clearly not random indicates that thought from outside our physical realm may be involved.
The argument would then shift from explaining the origin of these orbs to how the placement of these airborne particles can be so strategic. How can it happen that these physical airborne particles are, in that very moment when the flash is triggered (and with respect to the very position the camera is held), arranged into the highly defined constellation that leads to meaningful postioning of the orb in the resulting photograph?
Airborne particles should always be in statistically random locations; the orbs would then have to be expected to show up in photos only at statistically random locations--almost never in "meaningful" positions.
So even if relection at airborne particles were the origin of these orbs, and I am not all saying that this may in fact be the mechanism, the mysticiam about evidence of nonhuman thought would be undiminised. It would shift from the "miracle" of producing (a tiny amount of) physical energy with mans from antoher realm to the undiminished micralce of affecting the positioning and timing of numerous tin airborn particles in a meaningful way that clearly defies the laws of statistics.
It is our position, then, that since orbs appear in meaningful places in photographs, and not haphazardly, it is because they are there by design.
Other arguments brought forth by some critics center around impurities or abnormalities related to the camera or the electronic recording device built into the camera. This class of arguments can be dismissed with several pertinent factors, including numerous orbs photos taken by the Dutch professional photographer Ed Vos, as well as many others, on conventional photo film.
Are Orbs genuine emanuations from Spirit beings, or should they be explained as coincidental photographic defects? We have devoted an entire chapter in The Orb PRoject to this topic. It is his conclusion, from extensive research in this area, than an overwhelming majority of orb images seen by photographers all over the world are authentic and not caused by camera defects, reflections at airborne particles or moisture droplets, or other diffraction phenomena. Here we touch only on the most important arguments, but we encourage you to peruse the more in-depth discussion in the appendix.
There are clearly unanswered questions about the physical aspects of orb photography. The essence of this book is to explore the orbs' mission and the messages they are trying to communicate. UNQUOTE
Their conclusions, if correct, could have huge implications on the way we view the universe and our part in it. The experts say that just because something has not yet been scientifically proven, it doesn't mean that it is not real.
Professor William Tiller, a theoretical physicist who spent 35 years researching consciousness and matter at Stanford University in California, reminded the conference that what we see with our physical eyes comprises less then 10 per cent of the known universe.
This is because human vision operates only within a limited range of the electromagnetic spectrum. For instance, we cannot see radio waves, which carry huge amounts of information, yet we know they exist.
